SQLite is a software library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine. SQLite is the most widely deployed SQL database engine in the world. The source code for SQLite is in the public domain.
SQLite's homepage is: http://www.sqlite.org/
Transactions are atomic, 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 cross-platform disk file. Supports terabyte-sized databases and gigabyte-sized strings and blobs. Small code footprint: less than 325KiB fully configured or less than 190KiB with optional features omitted. Faster than popular client/server database engines for most common operations. Simple, easy to use API. Written in ANSI-C. TCL bindings included. Bindings for dozens of other languages available separately. Well-commented source code with 100% branch test coverage. Available as a single ANSI-C source-code file that you can easily drop into another project. Self-contained: no external dependencies. Cross-platform: Unix (Linux and Mac OS X), OS/2, and Windows (Win32 and WinCE) are supported out of the box. Easy to port to other systems. Sources are in the public domain. Use for any purpose. Comes with a standalone command-line interface (CLI) client that can be used to administer SQLite databases.
