VIADANA, Italy (November 13, 2006) – SQLabs today announced the
availability of SQLite3ProfessionalPlugin 2.0, their new SQLite 3
database engine plugin for REALbasic.

SQLite3ProfessionalPlugin is a REALbasic plugin that gives your
REALbasic projects low level access to the SQLite 3 database engine.
Starting from RB2005, the sqlite3 engine is include in every version
of REALbasic, but due to the way it is exposed to the end user, a lot
of its power and its speed aren’t availables.
SQLite3ProfessionalPlugin has been designed to take advantage of all
the real speed and real power that the new sqlite3 engine can offer.

SQLite3ProfessionalPlugin fully supports all the RB database API and
a lot more sqlite 3 specific methods. It is a near 1 to 1 map to the
sqlite3 C api, so you can have access to every sqlite3 routine inside
the REALbasic environment.

The audience for this plugin are professional database users, that,
for example, can take advantage of the sqlite3 progress handler
routine to give time to other threads or to update the REALbasic GUI
while a complex sql operation is in place, or that can use the
sqlite3 virtual machine to build a query system with zero delay time
and near zero memory requirements even if millions of rows are
returned from a query.

What’s new in version 2.0

– Updated sqlite library to version 3.3.8

– Universal Binary version

– Added RB database API

– Added the FST1 module in order to support full-text search

– Dropped PEF and RB 5.x support in order to be able to better stay
in sync with the latest sqlite library

– Other small fixes and optimizations

Minimum requirement is RB 2005 or higher.

A SQLite3ProfessionalPlugin single-developer license is $99. Company,
redistribution and source code licenses are also available.
