B. Nethravathi, G. Amitha, A. Saruka, T. P. Bharath, S. Suyagya
2020 Engineering, Technology & Applied Science Research  
SQL (Structured Query Language) is a structured language for specialized purposes used to communicate with the data stored in a database management system.  ...  In order to address this constraint, we have analyzed the existing models in Natural Language Processing, which convert a native-language query into an SQL query.  ...  Natural Language Interface to DataBase (NLIDB) has problems regarding language (language similarity) and domain behavior. The actual problem with NLIDBs is sequential translation.  ...

A Domain and Language Construct based Mapping to Convert Natural Language Query to SQL

Alka Malik, Rahul Rishi
2015 International Journal of Computer Applications  
End user is required to issue SQL query to retrieve information from the database.  ...  Database management systems (DBMS) have been widely used for storing and retrieving data. However, databases are often hard to use since their interface is quite rigid in cooperating with users.  ...  Questions entered in natural language translated into a statement in a formal query language.  ...
