The paper describes an educational application, oriented to university students, to help them to learn the SQL language in the ambit of a course on database systems and applications. This tool is integrated with a XML-based framework for courseware authoring, whose main characteristic is flexibility, since contents are presented to the students in different ways, depending on their previous knowledge, on the kind of hardware used to access the content, and on some preferences of the user. The implemented application is interactive, and allows the students to practice their understanding and their skills about the SQL language, following the approach of "leaning by doing".
