Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Nested loops join, also known as a nested loop join, is a computer programming algorithm that joins two sets of data using nested loops, frequently used in database management.

Example of nested loop join written in pseudocode

for each element in data set 1 {
for each element in data set 2 {
if element from 1 and element from 2 meet the conditions for joining, then {
join element from 1 and element from 1 into data set 3
} } }
