          140  +<p>The SQLite software free and it works great.
          141  +Most people use SQLite in their products and services without getting 
          142  +any kind of license or support.</p>
          143  +
          144  +<p>Free support for SQLite is available on the public
          145  +SQLite mailing list: 
          146  +<a href="mailto:sqlite-users@mailinglists.sqlite.org">sqlite-users@mailinglists.sqlite.org</a>.
          147  +The mailing list is monitored by a large
          148  +community of experts, including the core SQLite development team,
          149  +who are able to resolve just about
          150  +any problems with SQLite that you are likely to have.</p>
          151  +
          152  +<p>You can browse the 
          153  +<a href="http://www.mail-archive.com/sqlite-users%40mailinglists.sqlite.org/">
          154  +mailing list archives</a> or

          156  +sign-up</a> as a mailing list member.
          157  +To send a question to the mailing list, it is recommended that you
          158  +<a href="http://mailinglists.sqlite.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-users">
          159  +sign-up</a>, but you can simply send an email message to

          161  +your question will probably appear on the mailing list in about 24 hours.
          162  +(Questions from non-members are moderated, which is the reason for the
          163  +24-hour delay.)

          167  +Subscription</a> or "AMS" might
          168  +serve your needs better.
          169  +An AMS entitles you to private email support directly from the developers of
          170  +SQLite.  The level of support with an AMS is similar to the support one
          171  +gets from the public mail list except that an AMS includes a unilateral 
          172  +promise of non-disclosure, so with an AMS you can discuss your issues
          173  +with the SQLite developers in private, without the whole world watching.
          174  +An AMS costs $1500 per year.</p>
          175  +
          176  +<p>Users with more advanced support needs can opt for a
          177  +<a href="http://www.hwaci.com/sw/sqlite/tech.html">Technical Support

          180  +individual client, but generally include direct telephone support
          181  +and priority handling of issues and bugs.  Guaranteed response time
          182  +is available as an option to those to need it.  The cost of
          183  +technical support varies according to customer needs but is generally
          184  +in the range of $8000 to $35000 per year.</p>

          215  +Encrypted ReadOnly Database (CEROD)</a> extension are enhanced versions 
          216  +of SQLite that handle encrypted
          217  +and/or compressed databases.  SEE can read and write encrypted databases.
          218  +SEE encrypts all database content, including metadata, so that the database
          219  +file appears as white noise.  ZIPVFS 
          220  +compresses the database on-the-fly using application-supplied 
          221  +compression and decompression functions.
          222  +CEROD reads a compressed database that is
          223  +also optionally encrypted.  All of SEE, ZIPVFS, and CEROD are 
          224  +supplied in source code form only; the licensee is responsible for 
          225  +compiling the products for their chosen platform.  It is not difficult 
          226  +to compile any of these extension.  All products come in the form of an
          227  +<a href="https://www.sqlite.org/amalgamation.html">amalgamated source file</a>
          228  +named "sqlite3.c".  So compiling SEE, ZIPVFS, or CEROD into an application 
          229  +is simply a matter of substituting the SEE, ZIPVFS, or CEROD-enabled sqlite3.c 
          230  +source file in place of the public-domain sqlite3.c source file and recompiling.
          231  +Licenses for SEE, ZIPVFS, and CEROD are perpetual.
          232  +All three extension can read and write ordinary,
          233  +uncompressed and unencrypted database files.</p>

          238  +<p>The <a href="https://www.sqlite.org/th3.html">Test Harness #3 (TH3)</a> is 
          239  +a suite of test cases for SQLite that provide 100% branch test coverage
          240  +(and 100% modified condition/decision coverage) for the core SQLite in
          241  +an as-deployed configuration using only published and documented interfaces.
          242  +TH3 is designed for use with embedded devices, and is compatible with
          243  +DO-178B.  Every release of the public-domain SQLite is tested using TH3,
          244  +and so all users benefit from the TH3 tests.  But the TH3 tests are not
          245  +themselves public.  Hardware or system manufactures who want to have
          246  +TH3 test run on their systems can negotiation a service agreement to have
          247  +the SQLite Developers run those tests.</p>

          257  +Charlotte, North Carolina</a>.
          258  +Hwaci has been in continuous operation
          259  +since 1992.  Hwaci has an international team of
          260  +employees and associates representing the best available talent.  
          261  +We are a 100% engineering company.  There is
          262  +no sales staff.
          263  +Our goal is to provide outstanding service and honest advice
          264  +without spin or sales-talk.</p>
          265  +
          266  +<p>Hwaci is a small company but it is
          267  +also closely held and debt-free and has low
          268  +fixed costs, which means that it is largely immune to buy-outs and 
          269  +take-overs and market down-turns.  Hwaci intends to 
          270  +continue operating in its current form, and at roughly its current 
          271  +size until approximately the year 2050.
          272  +We expect to be here when you need us,
          273  +even if that need is many years in the future.</p>
