  1. Technically speaking, SQL (Structured Query Language) is a database management language for relational databases. Hence SQL itself is not a programming language, but its standard allows creating procedural extensions for it, which extend it to functionality of a mature programming language.
    Simply saying we can say that SQL is a programming language but it does not really do what a typical programming language does. Although it has extensions which can make it a language for programming but the purpose it lies around the management of databases.
