This is an open source relational database management system which unlike most database management systems that employ a client-server database engine, the software is rather embedded into SQL database. The application is extensively used across all platforms, from web browsers to operating systems and mobile phones.
Unlike SQL Server and MySQL, the application does not have a standalone server nor is it server-based. It actually file-based, that is, it reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. Don’t be scared that it might take up your storage as the application is extremely lightweight and can perform excellently in low storage conditions, though it is considerably faster on machines with big storage.
To use this software, you need to have prior knowledge of the SQL programming language as the application does not cater for novice or newcomers. The application does not have much in terms of GUI as it runs on a command-line console. To ensure your codes are executed, you have to conform to the SQL language syntax and end each line of code with a semicolon.
Overall, this is an application that specialists can employ when running SQL projects.
SQLite is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in database utils category and is available to all software users as a free download.
