Best SQL Client on ipad

I am looking for a SQL Client to use for practice on an ipad.
I won't be connecting to an online database.
What would you recommend?

A service such as sqlfiddle - available through your browser - will allow some use of MS SQL Server, but to get more than a taste you may want to locate some other "cloud service"
(e.g. Windows Azure {but that may be outside the wanted budget})

Perhaps look around for an ISP that offers SQL Express (free cutdown SQL Server) as the dbms for a web site? They may have browser based interfaces to the dbms as part of their service.

A PC of course would allow you to run SQL Express yourself :) but don't see it running on an iPad anytime soon (although I may be wrong, things change).

I'm out of ideas now. Good Luck.

If you won't be connecting to a database what do you expect a "SQL Client" to do for you?

You mention practice but what type of practice?  Without some sort of database emulation or actual database you are really just practicing typing.

If you actually want to practice SQL to see results, I suggest something web-based like:

Some of the tools I have seen are for people who will be managing a corporate database from their ipad. I will be practicing Sql queries with local database tables that I will create. I have looked Sqlite but I see there
a number of commands it does not support.

there will be limitations of this sort in almost any option running on an iPad iThink
(pardon pun)

as suggested sqlfiddle is a very useful tool (SQLite, Oracle, MySQL, MS Sql Svr, Postgres
- but restricted to small amounts of data (the DDL is limited to 8,000 chars)
and I don't know how well that UI works of iPad (but worth trying!)

Do you have a dbms that you particularly want to learn?
