SQLite
Last updated at 2:38 pm UTC on 14 August 2017
The Squeak wrapper for the SQLite free database server, availabe as a C library, just needs 3 simple api calls
Full SQL 97 (Structured Query Language) support see http://www.hwaci.com/sw/sqlite/
The SQLite3 wrapper needs FFI to connect to the C library.

Test example
| con s1 s2 s3 arrayOfDicts |
    con := SQLiteConnection fileNamed: 'test.db'.
    con inspect.
    s1 := 'create table employee (id, name)'.
    s2 := 'insert into employee values (1, ''Adam'')'.
    s3 := 'insert into employee values (2, ''Eve'')'.
    (Array
        with: s1
        with: s2
        with: s3)
        do: [:sql | con  executeQuery: sql].
    arrayOfDicts := con executeQuery: 'SELECT *FROM employee'.
    arrayOfDicts inspect.
    con close.

You might need to send #squeakToUtf8 to the SQL statements before executing them.

In case the api calls cannot find the library see

http://smalltalkhub.com/#!/~PharoExtras/NBSQLite3
Creation date: Dec 2014
The "NBSQLite3 for Pharo" is a project to provide an API and access to the SQLite3 database from within the Pharo image.

The NB is NativeBoost which was a Pharo 4 diversion for a high performance FFI, but was x86 only and made it harder to collaborate on the VM with Squeak programmers. Pharo 5
FFI returned to the fold to use again the original-FFI & Alien, but with (IIUC) a layer called Unified FFI so NB syntax translates to original-FFI backend.

There's also now a simple FFI wrapper for it at

SQLite version 2
Avi Bryant, Dec 2002



Note: it's available in sm by avi and I've tested it so I'd like to quote the code here:
	| con s1 s2 s3 arrayOfDicts |
	con := SQLiteConnection fileNamed: 'test.db'.
	con inspect.
	s1 := 'create table employee (id, name)'.
	s2 := 'insert into employee values (1,''Adam'')'.
	s3 := 'insert into employee values (2, ''Eve'')'.
	(Array
		with: s1
		with: s2
		with: s3)
		do: [:sql | con executeQuery: sql].
	arrayOfDicts := con executeQuery: 'SELECT * FROM employee'.
	arrayOfDicts inspect.
	con close.


Thank you, avi!
