We demonstrate the language Ferry and its editing, compilation, and
execution environment FerryDeck. Ferry's type system and operations
match those of scripting or programming languages; its compiler has been
designed to emit (bundles of) compliant and efficient SQL:1999
statements. Ferry acts as glue that permits a programming style in which
developers access database tables using their programming language's own
syntax and idioms ? the Ferry-expressible fragments of such programs may
be executed by a relational database back-end, i.e., close to the data.
The demonstrator FerryDeck implements compile-and-execute-as-you-type
interactivity for Ferry and offers a variety of (graphical) hooks to
explore and inspect this approach to database-supported program
