  • traditionally, query languages have fallen into two camps: powerful, expressive languages, not easily readable nor writable by non-experts (e.g. sql, pqf, and xquery);or simple and intuitive languages not powerful enough to express complex concepts (e.g. ccl and google). cql tries to combine simplicity and intuitiveness of expression for simple, every day queries, with the richness of more expressive languages to accomodate complex concepts when necessary. loc.gov
