SQLite is undoubtedly one of the best and lightest options on the database because of the space used by him it is minimal and yet manages to be very efficient in the activities proposed. By using the PL-SQL, manipulate the data in your tables is also very easy. The syntax of the select command, for example, resembles other known DBMS.
SELECT [Column] FROM [Table]
As an example we will perform the query of all records and a table that stores information about cars and for this we will use two forms.
SELECT * FROM Car
SELECT Name, Price, Brand FROM Car
In the first example all columns are displayed using the character (*) there is no need to know the names of all the columns. In the second example only the columns Name, Value and Brand will be displayed.
You even have the option of using the commands ORDER BY and GROUP BY, addition to WHERE clause if you need filters.
SELECT Name, Price, Brand FROM Car ORDER BY Name
SELECT Name, Price, Brand FROM Car GROUP BY Brand
SELECT Name, Price, Brand FROM Car WHERE Price > 60000
In the examples above we have a first query by name sorting, second by brand grouping and last query where only cars that cost more than 60,000 will be shown.
