SQLite Data Access Components
SQLite Data Access Components (LiteDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to SQLite from Delphi and C++Builder including Community Edition, as well as Lazarus (and Free Pascal) on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android 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 a possibility of cross-platform development using SQLite and various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, 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.
