Everything needed and no more

This paper endeavors to provide the information needed to form your own opinion about a fairly complex issue; MPbase's support of Structured Query Language (SQL).

MPbase has included sufficient SQL support to allow systems that need or want to communicate in SQL to do so. MPbase provides efficient support of several inefficient interfaces. The MPbase view, which is an extremely enhanced version of the traditional database view, allows efficient use of the SQL interface in spite of itself.

As with any paradigm change document, several supporting points need to be clarified before the above statements make sense. Here they are:
