FroglingoThe Froglingo is a language system unifying both database management and programming language. It is based on Lambda Calculus and the function space theory.
A database applications with 1000 lines of code in Java and SQL can be compressed with 100 lines of code in Froglingo.
The Froglingo exploits the lambda calculus and the function space
theory in the following ways:
- A Froglingo expression is a term, which is either a constant, an
identifier, a variable, or the combination of two terms. All the application
data and logic are expressed by terms.
- Both data and application logic are treated as "first-class
citizen": data is interpreted as (high-level) functions in the function
space; and all the application functions are stored as data.
