Oracle has released the latest version of Database Lite, aimed at providing mobile workers with access to databases on the go.
New in this release of Oracle Database Lite is the ability to bi-directionally synchronize data between the open source SQLite database and Oracle Database.
It also provides centralized user and devices provisioning and management of SQLite-based mobile applications, allowing disconnected users to have a similar experience to users who are connected.
Oracle Database Lite consists of:
Oracle Database Lite Client, a small footprint SQL database that runs on many devices and platforms and can be bi-directionally synchronized with an Oracle Database server; and,
Oracle Database Lite Mobile Server, which enables mobile users and devices to operate in occasionally connected environments, periodically synchronizing with a back-end database server.
“As companies look to more cost effectively run global operations, workers need to be able to efficiently access data without interruption or hassle despite their physical location, which is why demand for mobile applications continues to grow across many industries,” said Marie-Anne Neimat, vice president Software Development, Oracle.
“Oracle Database Lite’s support for mobile applications built on the open source SQLite database addresses this need and helps improve productivity for a large community of mobile workers.”
