To all that replied, thank you. Open source, not open contribution is a plus, so is the wide deployment and well known users (Airbus). There were many other good ideas mentioned like examining the source for network calls, etc. All of this will help me build a case in favor of SQLite.
No one here is denying the utility and value of open source software. Our IT dept. is following corporate mandates designed to protect our networks from various threats. It is understandable. Most of the software we use here, Microsoft and other well-known and paid-for products, are validated by corporate before deployment, and there are regular scans and updates. When everyone else in the company is using Microsoft SQL Server Express and I'm using SQLite instead it raises eyebrows. The last thing we need is some rouge engineer (could be me) breaking all our centrifuges with "freeware from the internet" when he should have used approved software instead. I know SQLite is safe and secure, but the auditors only know what is on their lists. Thanks again for all of your suggestions. I am a regular reader of this group because I learn so much. -- Bill Drago Staff Engineer L3 Narda-MITEQ 435 Moreland Road Hauppauge, NY 11788 631-272-5947 / william.dr...@l3t.com CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This email and any attachments are for the sole use of the intended recipient and may contain material that is proprietary, confidential, privileged or otherwise legally protected or restricted under applicable government laws.
