SQLite, SQL database engine.Updated by Editors on Tuesday, February 4, 2014.
SQLite is a small C library that implements a self-contained, embeddable, zero-configuration SQL database engine.
Many people like SQLite because it is small and fast. But those qualities are just happy accidents. Users also find that SQLite is very reliable. Reliability is a consequence of simplicity. With less complication, there is less to go wrong. So, yes, SQLite is small, fast, and reliable, but first and foremost, SQLite strives to be simple.
SQLite features : atomic transactions, consistent, isolated, and durable even after system crashes and power failures. Zero-configuration - no setup or administration needed. Implements most of SQL92. A complete database is stored in a single disk file. Database files can be freely shared between machines with different byte orders. Supports databases up to 2 tebibytes in size, strings and BLOBs up to 2 gibibytes in size. SQLite is faster than popular client/server database engines for most common operations.
The SQLite distribution comes with a standalone command-line access program (sqlite) that can be used to administer an SQLite database and which serves as an example of how to use the SQLite library.
