linux default iconGNOME-DB Publisher's description

The GNOME-DB project aims to provide a free unified data access architecture to the GNOME project.

The GNOME-DB project aims to provide a free unified data access architecture to the GNOME project. GNOME-DB is useful for any application that accesses persistent data (not only databases, but data), since it now contains a pretty good data management API. For information, the http://live.gnome.org/ChooseLibgdaSQLite page lists key points regarding the usage of the Libgda library compared to SQLite, most of the argumentation being relevant for other databases as well.



Here is a brief summary of Libgda's features, see also the detailed list of Libgda's features, or the Roadmap for the future versions.

Libgda is a (relatively small) database access library:

it is a wrapper like ODBC but with more features to access several database engines
features a meta data extractor (to know all about database objects in a common way)
comes with an SQL console application (like mysql, psql or sqlite3 consoles)
relies on GLib, coded in C, its API is easy to use
at the moment supports SQLite (and SQLCipher), MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSAccess, Berkeley Db (and is SQL extension), Oracle and JDBC (allows access to any database through a JDBC driver), work is in progress for other database types (such as Firebird). There is also a special feature which allows one to connect to a database hidden behing a web server (through specific PHP scripts)
LGPL licensed for the libraries and GPL licensed for the tools

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
