What is a SQL API?

A SQL API is an API for interacting and communicating with a database. In the case of CockroachDB, CockroachDB offers a SQL API to users and apps. This means that users and apps can send SQL commands into the API and receive the results of their query in return. The commands must follow the PostgreSQL Wire Protocol, because CockroachDB adheres to it.
