Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-103) Support opening a database that connects to an existing file
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 16:20:40 GMT


Patrick Mueller commented on CB-103:

Sounds pretty useful.  My main worry is how portable these sqlite binary files are:

- platform-to-platform
- version-to-version

Even it the files are portable today across a large # of platforms and versions of platforms,
could this change in the future?

The alternative would seem to be some kind of database "dump" format, which would obviously
be slower to process, but likely more "portable".

The benefit of this is that your application can ship a database seeded with data. Without
this support, your application has to initialize the db via scripting. While not difficult,
it does increase the application's first run time and also complicates the code unnecessarily.
I understand that this isn't per the Web SQL spec,, but
it could certainly be useful.
