Ch --- an Embeddable C/C++ Interpreter for Script Computing

  • Ch SQLite is a Ch binding to SQLite C library. Ch is an embeddable C/C++ interpreter for scripting, shell programming, numerical computing, 2D/3D plotting and embedded scripting. With the Ch SQLite package, all C (or C++) programs using functions from the SQLite C library can readily run in Ch interpretively without compilation. It is an ideal solution for rapid prototyping, Web- based applications, and embedded scripting.


Common Lisp

COM Wrappers / Visual Basic DLLs

  • dhSQLite, ADO-like COM Wrapper. Current Wrapper-Version 3.0.23 (engine-version 3.7.4), now part of the free dhRichClient3-Toolset ... best performing COM-Wrapper, built-in encryption, optimized for disconnected Recordset-scenarios, super fast serialization/deserialization with 'UpdateBatch', Connection-, Recordset-, Field- and Command-Objects, DB-Schema-Obj-Model, builtin VB-Function-Set (DateDiff, DatePart, Format$, etc.), user-definable Functions/Collations, FTS3- and RTree-support, Overridden Like, Upper, Lower and NoCase means UTF8-awareness without ICU ... combinable with a free COM-RPC-Server for usage in real AppServer-scenarios in your LAN or over the Internet (due to built-in protocol-compression and -encryption).
  • SQLitePlus Top selling COM Wrapper DLL and Database Explorer that extends the functionality of SQLite to add important features such as on-the-fly Encryption and Compression, .csv data import and export, Script Stored Procedures, and an ADO-like object model. Also includes an excellent Database Explorer/Query Analyzer for visualizing and working with your Sqlite data. SQLitePlus features built-in scripting capability - something NO OTHER PRODUCT has. Create simple or complex automation scripts, and generate XML documents with PHP-like script files using VbScript or Javascript.
  • System.Data.SQLite is an enhanced version of the original SQLite database engine. It is a complete drop-in replacement for the original sqlite3.dll (you can even rename it to sqlite3.dll). It has no linker dependency on the .NET runtime so it can be distributed independently of .NET, yet embedded in the binary is a complete ADO.NET 2.0 provider for full managed development.
  • SQLite3VB - Making SQLite VB Compatible. Teaches how to modify the SQLite C source code to make it VB-friendly. You end up with a non-COM DLL that you can call from a VB Classic project. [Sept 2007: The instructions will let you compile the project yourself (might require some common sense!) or download the compiled DLL - Currently 3.4.2]
  • AGS_SQLite SQLite wrapper 1.1.0 for Visual Basic is based on SQLite 2.8.13, and includes source + sample program. The AGS_SQLite.DLL file contains all of the functions that SQLite.DLL has, so all you need is AGS_SQLite.DLL. Geckoware was formerly known as AGSoftware.
  • SqLite2X : Free ActiveX wrapper with sources (2005-Nov-29 [mpot] sqlite 2.x only)
  • SleepSleep sqlite wrapper for vb6 (dead link) - wrapper dll coded using fasm. Come with wrapper dll source code, a vb6 "sqlite browser" project files to show how to use the dll and a .bas file for you to attach on your project to use the dll instantly. (sqlite 2.x only)
  • (July 2007: dead link) qrfSQL2 Database Engine
  • (July 2007: dead link) SQLITEDB by Javier S. Bermudez
  • eBunda ADOSQLite VB6 wrapper requires AGS_SQLite.dll from ag-software (2005-Nov-29 [mpot] sqlite 2.x only)
  • (Apr, 2008: Dead link) Pivotal Solutions' non-COM DLL dynamically binds to SQLite DLL at runtime and so doesn't need recompiling everytime a new version of SQLite is released, ie. you'll need to distribute both PS' DLL and SQLite's DLL. (Apr, 2008: Dead link)
  • (Apr, 2008: No longer maintained) SQLiteDB is an ActiveX DLL built on top of SQLite (i.e. you only need to distribute SQLiteDb.dll) and is designed as an ADO replacement. Available in free and commercial versions. Although the site has not been updated recently, the developer does release frequent updates via the message board. The current SQLiteDB Professional build is based off of SQLite 3.4.0. The demo (built on SQLite 3.3.6) comes with plenty of examples and sample applications.
  • LiteX: COM DLL wrapper for SQLite3 (ATL). ("Release date: 16-04-2008, Used SQLite3 library version: 3.5.7.")
  • (Apr, 2008: Dead link) { DAO like Sqlite Wrapper for VB6} (2005-Nov-29 [mpot] sqlite 2.x only) (2005-Nov-14, [Michael B. Johnson] No sample code on usage that I could see.)
  • SQLite for Excel is a lightweight wrapper to give access to the SQLite3 library from VBA. It provides a high-performance path to the SQLite3 API functions, preserving the semantics of the SQLite3 library calls and allowing access to the distributed SQLite3.dll without recompilation, so is not tied to a particular version. MIT license.

    It would be useful if people could comment on the merits of using a particular wrapper !





  • Aducom's SQLite: Open source (NewBSD) Delphi (4..2007) C++ (BCB5, 6, 2007) and 2009/2010 components for SQLite V2.8.x and V3.x.x.
