<mikebw>If you want a free SQL database on Linux, use PostgreSQL and do not waste

<mikebw>free SQL server which has essential features such as on-line backup and
<mikebw>transaction support.  You can access PostgreSQL from nearly any language,
<mikebw>and there is support for C/C++, Perl, Python, and Java among many others.  
<mikebw>There is a "psql" tool which allows manual manipulation of the database,
<mikebw>such as creation of tables and definitions of schemas, but it actually
<mikebw>will allow issuing any query.  See for info.
