The most popular relational SQL database


SQlite is a serverless SQL Database that does not require a separate server process. You do not need a configuration (Zero configuration) and it does not need any administration. The whole database is stored in a single cross-platorm disk (or on your mobile device). It is very popular and widely used with mobile applications as the database is stored in the device and can be used without network connection. No external dependencies.

SQLite as opposed to client/server relational database engines is serverless and it's use is indicated where efficency, reliability, independence and simplicity are required and it does not look for a shared repository. SQLite trasactions are fully ACID-compliant. SQLite supports most query languages that are SQL92 compliant and it is written in ANSI-C which provides simple APIs.

SQLite is available on Linux, Mac OS-x, Android, iOS and Windows 32, WinCE and WinRT platforms.
