I would prefer to go with postgre but I think that is going to have to be a
future project; right now we use a file geodatabase because it can be
copied and distributed. Some of our PC's are disconnected from a network
and/or have very limited network access. To my knowledge I cannot just copy
a Postgres, MySQL, Maria, or other like databases to a PC or tablet and run
them. I have run Postgre as a local service doing some testing and playing
but I have no place to put it for everyone to access, thats why I am
looking for a SQLite/File geodatabase type solution.
SQLite's only issue is that the qgsEditRelationWidget and qgsRelationWidget
don't seem to respond well to it. I have tried a number of different ways
to make those features work and it always ends in either a crash with
minidump or "unable to commit changes to the database". LibreBase does not
acknowledge SQLite's capabilities as a database; tried it with both JDBC
and ODBC drivers. I can build but cannot edit tables, will not support
relations or SQL Queries containing inner, outer, or full joins.
What about a GUI for SQLite? Something like Access for SQLite databases? If
there was such a thing I could move the data entry to that; looks like I
have some googling to do.
