Projects / SQLite


SQLite is a small, fast, embeddable SQL database engine that supports most of SQL92, including transactions with atomic commit and rollback, subqueries, compound queries, triggers, and views. A complete database is stored in a single cross-platform disk file. The native C/C++ API is simple and easy to use. Bindings for other languages are also available.

    Release Notes: This release adds the sqlite3_create_function_v2() interface, which includes a destructor callback. It adds support for custom r-tree queries using application-supplied callback routines to define the boundary of the query region. The default page cache strives more diligently to avoid using memory beyond what is allocated to it by SQLITE_CONFIG_PAGECACHE. Or if using page cache is allocating from the heap, it strives to avoid going over the sqlite3_soft_heap_limit64(), even if SQLITE_ENABLE_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT is not set.

      Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that caused a segfault when running a count(*) on the sqlite_master table of an empty database, a bug that caused a segfault when inserting into a table using a DEFAULT value when there was a function as part of the DEFAULT value expression, data structure alignment issues on Sparc, and other minor problems.

            Hard to say too much good about this...
            It's small, fast and very low footprint, the Python bindings are excellent... I'm really exceedingly pleased with SQLite. Since converting cscvs (a project I maintain) to use it, performance and space efficiency have vastly improved over previous versions, and the ease-of-use (and ease-of-setup) perspective makes it tremendously more appropriate for embedded use in a tool of this sort than depending on a full-fledged out-of-process database server.

            In short: Try it. You'll like it.
