Overview Of SQLite


SQLite is an open source project and an embedded relational database engine which is used to manipulate the data in the database. SQLite is more efficient than other database engines in Android applications. SQLite is written in C programming language and it contains the C programming library. it is not a client–server database engine; rather, SQLite is embedded into the end program. It implements SQL-92 standard. Lots of software programs use SQLite internally, such as Android apps, Google Chrome, Firefox etc.
