ClojureQL is an abstraction layer sitting on top of standard low-level JDBC SQL integration. It lets you interact with a database through objects which work as Clojure data types and thus can be composed and extended.
ClojureQL is modeled around the primitives defined in Relational Algebra. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relational_algebra
For the user, this means that all queries compose and are never executed unless dereferenced or called with a function that has the ! suffix.
As a help for debugging, wrap your statements in (binding [*debug* true]) to see the compiled SQL statement printed to stdout.
Add the following to your project.clj or pom.xml:
<dependency> <groupId>clojureql</groupId> <artifactId>clojureql</artifactId> <version>1.0.5</version> </dependency>
cake deps or lein deps
And import the library into your namespace

ClojureQL was bootstrapped by Lau Jensen of SabreCMS and Best In Class.
Large and significant contributions to both the design and codebase have been rendered by Justin Balthrop aka. ninjudd author of the powerful build tool Cake.
In addition, the following people have made important contributions to ClojureQL:
- Roman Scherer (r0man)
- Christian Kebekus (ck)
- Herwig Hochleitner (bendlas)
- And several others
