Post-scripting to Deal with Complex SQL Queries

SQL (or the stored procedure) can handle most of the database computations. If the computations are complex or hard to deal in SQL, we use another programming language to read data out of the database to manipulate it. Such a programming language handles the data read and manipulation with a simple script. So we call the process the post-SQL scripting.

The scenarios that SQL is not good at handling include complex set-based operations, order-based operations,…
