Outside of the world of enterprise computing, there is one database that enables a huge range of software and hardware to flex relational database capabilities, without the baggage and cost of traditional database management systems. That database is SQLite—an embeddable database with an amazingly small footprint, yet able to handle databases of enormous size. SQLite comes equipped with an array of powerful features available through a host of programming and development environments. It is supported by languages such as C, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, TCL, and more.
The Definitive Guide to SQLite, Second Edition is devoted to complete coverage of the latest version of this powerful database. It offers a thorough overview of SQLite’s capabilities and APIs. The book also uses SQLite as the basis for helping newcomers make their first foray into database development. In only a short time you can be writing programs as diverse as a server-side browser plug-in or the next great iPhone or Android application!
- Learn about SQLite extensions for C, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Tcl.
- Get solid coverage of SQLite internals.
- Explore developing iOS (iPhone) and Android applications with SQLite.
SQLite is the solution chosen for thousands of products around the world, from mobile phones and GPS devices to set-top boxes and web browsers. You almost certainly use SQLite every day without even realizing it!
What youll learn
- Deploy SQLite as the database engine for iPhone and Android applications.
- Interact with SQLite from Java, C++, PHP, and other key languages.
- Create robust database designs, taking advantage of support for primary and foreign key constraints.
- Embed zero-maintenance databases directly within applications that you write.
- Improve performance through a good understanding of SQLite internals.
- Exploit features such as the shared cache, the SQL Logic Test Suite, the Unlock and Notify APIs, and query plan improvements.
Who this book is for
The Definitive Guide to SQLite is for developers needing a zero-maintenance database solution to deploy as an embedded component within their product. The book is especially useful for mobile developers delivering applications to run on the iPhone, or on the Android platform. PHP developers will also find the book useful if they are using the default database delivered as part of a PHP installation.

The first two chapters provide a formal introduction to SQLite concerning its purpose, philosophy, and high level architecture. It then walks you through the options for downloading SQLite from the SQLite website and beginning to use the CLP.
Chapters 3-4 delve into using SQL with SQLite, and the content is actually comparable to the SQL reference I have on my desk shelf. Seasoned developers should still sift through the information as some of it is SQLite specific.
Chapter 5 provides the design specifics you will need to consider when developing your applications. Data flow models add to the value here as the author discusses connections, queries, aggregates, collations, transactions, locking, caching
Chapters 6-8 are where the rubber meets the road! There is an ample amount of code and explanations here that walk you through interacting with the Core C API and Extension C API. Then, examples are provided on the language extensions for Perl, Python, Ruby, Java (including JDBC), Tcl, and PHP. So far, I have walked through the Python examples and most of the Java examples without a hitch. The book mentions the SQLite ODBC driver a couple of times but I wish they would've touched on it as well.
And if that isn't enough for you, the author devoted new chapters solely to mobile development for iOS and Android. Information and screenshots on working with the development kits are provided as well as code examples.
I also appreciate that the book said everything that needed to be said in 347 pages (yes, Ed2 is shorter than the 440 page Ed 1) instead of 600 - 1000. I've sifted through too many mammoth technical titles in the past few years that could have easily portrayed the same content in half the space. Thank you!
The index issues readers had with Ed1 have been addresses in Ed2, so readers are now able to quickly find the desired information.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this title as it has enhanced my understanding of SQL and database development in addition to proficiency with SQLite.
Now in its second edition the book is even better for mobile development because it now includes two chapters dedicated to mobile developent, one chapter for iOS development and one chapter for Android Development with SQLite.
Just as in the first edition, the book has very good and detailed explanations about the use of SQL in SQLite, so if you have not been using SQL for a while or you are learning SQL this will be a great start.
After that it covers how to use SQLite in C , IOs and Android, and touches briefly language extensions in perl python ruby, Java, JDBC, TCL,
I do really recommend to go troought those chapters, even if you are goinig to use SQLite in just one environment, because it will give you a more complete view on how to use SQLite.
When trying to build the app for iOS it is important to notice that is has been built using the iOS SDK 3.1.3, so you got to be careful if you have installed the latest SDK version, at least because of my limited knowledge on iOS development, I couldn't build the app, but I guess that for somebody with proper knowledge of the SDK will have no problems at all
About the android development chapter the detail is very good, I learned a few interesting things from there, and I am looking forward to build the app, one little problem here, the downloaded source code in the Apress site, has a copy of the iOS app in the Android chapter, but I hope this is going to be corrected very soon, so I can build the app using the android SDK.
So for me is a great book in the topic, that you would want to read and keep at hand as a reference when developing mobile applications.
The Definitive Guide To SQLite provides a fantastic level of detail (just enough to keep you from missing important details, but not too much). This is really great because I can strongly recommend this book to others knowing that they will be given excellent coverage of important details.
SQLite is a great library that provides a robust and very flexible database engine that can be directly embedded into your applications. SQLite, being an embedded database, has been designed differently than the larger network connected databases. The Definitive Guide To SQLite did an excellent job explaining the design goals that the SQLite development team works under and how these design goals affects the APIs.
The main thing I found missing in The Definitive Guide To SQLite was coverage of a C#/.NET wrapper. The book covers C (the language SQLite is written in) as well as Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, Tcl, PHP, the iOS (for iPhones), and Android. Note that after a bit of research I found System.Data.SQLite which appears to be a very popular SQLite wrapper for the .NET framework with good community support.
SQLite is a great database engine for many projects, and The Definitive Guide To SQLite is a great book for learning and understanding SQLite! I recommend this book to programmers with an intermediate to advanced skill set who want/need to integrate a database in their applications without installing a full database server!
Just the book I was seeking for: I recommend It without dude.
Didactic, concise and the chapter about SQL is very good.
