dbExpress Driver for SQLite Overview
dbExpress Driver for SQLite is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to SQLite from Delphi and C++Builder on Windows and macOS for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
For this database engine, dbExpress provides a driver as an independent library. As data-access layer is thin and simple, dbExpress provides high performance database connectivity and is easy to deploy. You can use our driver in the same way as the one supplied by Embarcadero.
dbExpress driver for SQLite provides direct high performance access to SQLite databases. The driver requires SQLite library "sqlite3.dll".
Native Connectivity to SQLite
Applications based on dbExpress driver for SQLite are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE and ODBC), and that's why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions.
To protect your data from unauthorized access, our dbExpress driver for SQLite provides a powerful and customizable SQLite Database Encryption engine. You no longer have to spend money to buy expensive SQLite client libraries with support for encryption - with Static Linking, encryption support will be automatically added to your application and the following algorithms will be able to protect your data: AES, Blowfish, TripleDES, Cast128, RC4. dbExpress driver for SQLite allows to use any third-party SQLite library with SQLite Encryption support as well.
Linking the SQLite library statically in your application ensure, that your application uses exactly the same version of SQLite, with which it was developed and tested. Also it makes deployment easier.
Our product supports SQLite versions since 3.0 and higher.
dbExpress driver for SQLite doesn't limit your choice of the development platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi.
Use our freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using SQLite dbExpress Driver for SQLite. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo, Delphi 10.2 Tokyo and C++Builder 10.2 Tokyo. It is also compatible with the previous IDE versions since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.
Now you can develop not only VCL-based applications in Delphi, but also use the newest FireMonkey application development platform.
All our components and libraries are designed to help you write high-performance, lightweight data access layers, therefore they use advanced data access algorithms and techniques of optimization.
