Should I Use Custom Database Or Use Sqlite3?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :)

I am developing a toolkit with new tools for man in the middle attacks.

Quick question/survey : Should i use sqlite3 or should i make a text-file-database ?

From a performance point of view I'd use SQLlite3.

It's a lot easier and cleaner to maintain than flat-file database.

I would go with sqlite, if you need text reports from the results then it wouldn't take long to code a script to extract the results you are interested in and export them in whatever format you want.

Depends on the application and how its used. If the code in general is cross platform or run from a stand alone executable, and you have a need for portability, flat files are nice to keep on thumb drives with all the scripts in tact.

Isn't sqlite cross platform?

I'd encourage you to use sqlite. It's small and doesn't need much besides the library plus relatively fast. And why re-invent the wheel? Put your energy into making an awesome tool instead.
