anyone ever hear of Ada? Few billions of US tax payer dollars went down that black hole to no good end and that was supported by one of the largest institutions in the world, the US Pentagon. So much for who supports it. BTW: If you’ve ever heard of PL/SQL then you’ve heard of Ada, by another name.

I beg pardon. Billions must have gone into a secret UFO laboratory. But judging from PL/SQL - ADA is a beauty. An attempt to depart from years old, obscure and unreadable C syntax. No offence intended - as far as I remember one of design reasons for {}-usage instead of readable BEGIN-END/END IF/END LOOP was to save space and typing time... And that is only one example. No longer an issue on the modern hardware...

as for the original question - this is a university, right ? Let them give a try. May be some javadb++ will come out of it ( ACID compliant and all )
