Mozilla and Symbian join SQLite Consortium
Posted on 13-Dec-2007 09:08 | Filed under: News



Announced today, the SQLite Consortium is a new membership association dedicated to maintaining SQLite as a fully open and independent product. Mozilla and Symbian Ltd have joined the SQLite Consortium as charter members.

SQLite is a compact, high efficiency, high reliability, embeddable SQL database engine. The source code to SQLite is in the public domain and is available with no associated fees.

The group says SQLite is the most deployed SQL database engine in the world and is currently used in a wide range of commercial software products and electronic devices. SQLite is found today in many mobile phones, MP3 players, set-top boxes, and PCs.

The mission of the SQLite Consortium is to continue developing and enhancing SQLite as a product that anyone may use without paying royalties or licensing fees. Members of the SQLite Consortium provide funding to enable this mission and in return receive enterprise-level technical support. Technical control and direction of SQLite remains entirely with the SQLite developers.

Mozilla, developer of the popular open-source Firefox web browser, and Symbian, the market-leading open operating system for smartphones, both deploy the SQLite database engine in their products. As charter members of the Consortium, Mozilla and Symbian are ensuring the development and support of SQLite as a freely accessible and public domain software asset.

“SQLite has become a popular embedded database because it is lightweight, fast, and open source,” said Michael Schroepfer, Vice President of Engineering, Mozilla. “As a charter member of the SQLite Consortium, Mozilla is excited to help ensure SQLite remains a vibrant and open technology, in line with our mission to promote choice and innovation on the Internet.”
