Are there any utilitues available that will allow me to define and populate a new real database that is driven by the SQLite engine? It is not clear to me how one goes about doing this. :)

If you're using REALbasic 2005, you can use the database editor to create the database tables, columns, etc. To import the data, you will need to write code (at least for now).

Choose Project -> Add -> Database -> New REAL SQL Database.

I see. Thank you. I have ordered the CD and documentation. Will there be any tutorials or examples that will show how to buiild an application using the New Real Database? :lol:

I believe there are some database examples. We will also be posting a database tutorial hopefully later this month.

For creating, browsing and testing SQLite database files for use with RB, I've been using the free SQLite Database Browser utility:
http://sqlitebrowser.sourceforge.net/

I use the Mac version and it works well for me.

This happens to be my one draw back with RB is that It seams to be rather difficult in creating DataBases. But I am not sure if that is due to the lack of good examples or just that there are SO many things that RB can do with Databases.

I have both the RB 555 Pro and RB2005r3 Pro, and after learning I needed more memory, I enjoy RB2005r3 totally. In fact I stoped using the RB555 and now on to RB2005r3.

But I ahve many apps now that needs to be translated to RealBasic from Rapid-Q

I will check back to see if any examples are created for Databases.

It’s not difficult at all, probably the best database integration of any programming language.
You do need to spend a little time messing around with it until you get the feel.

Tom mentioned SQLite Database Browser, that makes creating the database easy.

If you create a little test project and test each feature, one at a time, you’ll have it mastered in no time.
