SQL[edit]

It seems that most of those languages are related to SQL. Some of them just for "producing SQL" by using other words and rules.

Isn't there any query language which doesn't have a relationship with SQL? As in the difference between JavaScript and VBScript. Or like the difference between ASP and PHP.

On the other hand, the list should be reorganised for differentiating SQL oriented ones from the others.

Yes. The article currently contains many languages that are not related to SQL or relational databases -- for example, XPath, SPARQL, MDX, LDAP. Also, there is a subtle difference between query languages and tools "producing SQL" -- e.g., DSLs or frameworks.
