How does The SQLITE-JDBC Driver Jar File Works?


Our SQLite-JDBC driver package contains three types of native SQLite libraries. SQLite-jdbc.dll, SQLite-JDBC.jnilib, SQLite-JDBC.so. Each of them is compiled for Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

  • Mac OS X x86_64 ( Support for SnowLeopard (i386) 
  • Linux x86, x86_64, arm (v5, v6, v7 and for android), ppc64

In the other Operating systems not on the list above, use the pure-java SQLite. ( Applies to versions before 3.7.15)
