DBMS Interface

A DBMS interface enables a user to enter queries into a database without the need for the query language. A DBMS interface may be a web client, a smartphone app, or a local client running on a desktop computer.

How Does a DBMS Interface Work?

A DBMS is designed for storing data and responding to queries via a query language (e.g. SQL). A DBMS interface provides users with a way to query data without using the query language, as this can be complex and confusing.

The standard process for this involves creating a form presenting the query types that users can make. Due to MySQL’s popularity, web-based forms have become particularly common, though the traditional approach has been local desktop apps.

However, mobile applications may be made too. These interfaces offer users a simpler, more friendly way to access data instead of using the command line.

Please note that technologies described on Wiki pages are not necessary the part of Plesk control panel or its extensions.
