SQLite Data Access Components
SQLite Data Access Components (LiteDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to SQLite from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and Free Pascal) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux, and FreeBSD for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. LiteDAC is designed for programmers to develop truly cross-platform desktop and mobile SQLite database applications with no need to deploy any additional libraries.
LiteDAC provides two ways of connection to SQLite from Delphi and other IDEs. One of them is common connection by means of the native SQLite client library. The second is a unique possibility of direct access using static linking of the client library in an application.
Native Connectivity to SQLite
LiteDAC-based DB applications are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE or ODBC), and that's why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions. Moreover, LiteDAC provides an additional opportunity to work with SQLite in Delphi and C++Builder directly by linking of the client library statically in your application.
To protect your data from unauthorized access, LiteDAC 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. LiteDAC allows to use any third-party SQLite library with SQLite Encryption support as well.
Cross-Platform Development in Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus
LiteDAC provides possibility of cross-platform development using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux, and FreeBSD for both x86 and x64 platforms. LiteDAC also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance desktop and mobile native applications.
Wide Coverage of SQLite Features
By providing access to the most advanced database functionality, LiteDAC allows developers to harness the full capabilities of the SQLite and optimize their database applications. LiteDAC supports such SQLite features as working with user-defined functions, database encryption, and more.
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.
Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using LiteDAC becomes still easier, as LiteDAC allows your mobile applications to work with SQLite database as simply as desktop applications do.
LiteDAC doesn't limit your choice of the development platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi and Lazarus (and FPC).
Data Type Mapping
If you want to make custom correspondence between SQLite and Delphi data types, you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by LiteDAC.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo, Delphi 10.2 Tokyo, C++Builder 10.2 Tokyo, Lazarus (and FPC). 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 and LCL-based ones in Lazarus, 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.
Use our freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using SQLite data access components. dbMonitor performs per-component tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
