SQLite database & Spectral Core

SQLite is an embedded open-source relational database engine. SQLite is extremely popular – it’s the most widely deployed database engine, used by popular browsers, operating systems, embedded systems, mobile applications…

We support SQLite directly in our products! You don't need separate drivers and can immediately connect to your database.

SQLite requires no configuration and works as an in-process library. This means in never runs additional system processes aside with the application that uses it. Complete SQLite database with tables, indexes and code is a simple disk file using exactly the same structure on all supported platforms. This means that SQLite database can simply be copied to be readily used on any other system. Many applications save their projects as SQLite databases – there is no need to reinvent the file format when SQLite is so simple to use and allows reliable and fast reading and write of any data. Databases can be encrypted when any of encryption extensions is used, SQLite Encryption Extension (SEE) being an official one.

SQLite is very compact in size and (depending on compiler) can be under 500kB in size (even under 300kB when unneeded features are excluded). It performs wonderfully in very memory-limited conditions and is therefore often used in cellphones, PDAs and MP3 players.

SQLite uses PostgreSQL as a reference platform when deciding how to deal with SQL standard. However, an important distinction is that SQLite doesn’t enforce type checking – it’s dynamically typed. A table row value will have a specific type, but its column will not enforce its type specification when data is written. That’s pretty confusing for anyone with any experience with other relational databases, though useful.

At this moment our products expect SQLite database to conform to its database schema. In the near future we plan to add an option to dynamically scan the data and decide optimal data types, in the same way we already do with CSV data, for example.

SQLite support in our products

All our products support SQLite database natively. No drivers are needed, you will be able to work with SQLite as soon as you run our applications.

Export your SQLite database

It may make sense to migrate your data away from SQLite. You may want to do it permanently or just need to share your tables with a collague in a different format.

We will copy all your tables with their data and apply indexing and relationships exactly as they are in your current SQLite database. In a nutshell, you get exactly the same database in another database engine. Each time you run the migration, we will copy all the tables again. Of course, we have a built-in scheduler, so you can run this overnight and have a fresh database copy in the morning.

Import data into your SQLite database

Have a need to import data from various sources into your SQLite database? Luckily we support many popular database formats to make this easy for you. Instead of messing with exporting from source, then working your way to somehow import data into SQLite, use our tool to copy all desired tables directly - quickly and easily.

Replicate your SQLite database

If you have already created your target database (by yourself or using our Full Convert product), you can synchronize data in your target database with your original SQLite database. We never pollute your databases with additional tables or triggers for replications. We never even write to your source database.

Replication allows you to update your target database very often, as we always write just a minimum of changes needed to bring databases in sync. For example, if you added three records to a single table in your SQLite database, our replication product will write those three records to target database and nothing else. If you deleted some records, changed some others and inserted some, again – our product will pick that up and replay those changes in the target databases without touching existing data that should stay there. Our products are highly optimized for real-world workloads, so data that's inserted into different areas of table are combined and written using high-speed algorithms, as available in a specific target database.

You can run database replication often, as your target database is never empty while replication runs. You will simply see that your changes are applied on each run.

Document your SQLite database schema

Database diagrams only get you so far. You may want to keep HTML mini-website for your database documentation so all your developers can be in the loop and quickly locate needed information. You may need it for a client report, or to distribute your database schema as a CHM file to people who need it.

Our products even allow you to upload the documentation to your FTP server, so your website copy is always current.
