SQLite

I recommend the use of SQLite for embedded systems.If you need to store a large amount of data, store blobs, use triggers, handle multiple accesses at the same time, and need to optimize indexes, then I would recommend using another database system.SQLite should also be considered if the installation/configuration of a heavier database system is a problem.

Pros

IBDAC

No answers on this topic

SQLite

  • The biggest one has to be that it is freeware and open source as well. It means for an entry level person who wants to learn relational database and even for a team in the early development stage where security and size of the data are not much, it is a perfect fit in those cases.
  • It requires no extra configuration or space because it a server-less installation and also done in just a few mins. So, installing this is never a blocker. It is the actual lite version of SQL as the name suggests and it very powerful and capable of doing all the things which SQL can do, but lacks some of the security and advanced features.
  • It prepares the data for us in a structured form in terms of Tables with a file size less than 1 Mb for the complete database entries. It saves us a lot of physical space.
  • It is the most suitable DB for Android systems because mobile apps do not have a lot of space or resources for a separate DB, but this one integrates with the whole ecosystem very nicely and we are able to make the most out of it and that too with a file lesser than 1 Mb in size.

Cons

SQLite

  • Better data recovery when the database becomes corrupt would be ideal. I've learned to minimize it by closing the database more frequently, but it can still happen.
  • Lack of built-in data encryption.
  • SQLite is a single-user DBMS. If a multi-user system is required, then an alternative is required.

I have had a wonderful experience with SQLite because in my every project I use SQLite in the development phase because it's really fast, doesn't crash and very easy to maintain as well. It saves a lot on physical memory and dedicated server usage. It has all the basic functionality you would need to get the job done and that too at no cost at all. What more could you ask for !!!

SQLite has many types of queries to do CRUD operations. and even do manipulation to external files as well. it is fast and easy to implement compared to other Databases. SQLite support atomic behaviours, so app crash in any situation, the won't impact database or data within it. SQLite is best suited for desktop or mobile apps.

SQLite

  • SQLite comes with phenomenal documentation and support online. Also, it has a very active online community and most likely you will find the solution to any problem there.
  • SQLite is a serverless relational database management system. So we do not need to have any pre-configurations to support it and also it does not require any physical space or memory because the complete DB file size is under 1 MB only.
  • There is no learning curve because the syntax is the same as that of SQL and installation is very fast and straightforward. So we can get to work as soon as the tool gets installed.
  • The best of all is that it is Freeware and an Open source too.
