Storing data in SQLite databases

SQLite databases require no configuration or administration. Other than schema and data, the database footprint is very small (around 300 KB).

To create and use SQLite databases in a Java application, you must use the Database API. The classes required for SQLite databases are in the net.rim.device.api.database package.

BlackBerry Device Software 6.0 uses SQLite version 3.6.21.

Note: This guide describes how to use SQLite databases in Java applications. There are other ways to use SQLite databases on a BlackBerry device. They are BlackBerry WebWorks applications, HTML5, and Google Gears. For more information, see
