SQL Preprocessor in C++

  • 14 years ago

    I have to design a dynamic database in c++, which will be later used by some applications. At the moment of the design i dont know the actual data to be stored , So i must give the opportunity to the application programmer( user of database) to define the structure/format of data and creat Tables according to relative data structure.

                      I came accross the SQLPP ,and believe that it may be very helpful  to complete my task, but as far as i have learnd about SQLPP  it requires  DATABASE server etc , but in my case there is no database server, data will be stored in a file..simple File I/O operations.

    So my question is that CAN I USE SQLPP without  DATABASE servers ?

                  or if there is any other way to do this please help me. thanks a lot.

    You might ahve a look at SQLite. It is a simple database and does most of the things you want.

    If you wanna go for SQL Preprocessor for DB2 UDB, then the best apprach is to take the .SQC files (Embedded SQLs With C/C++ Language) as a input and can write the parser to preprocess all the EXEC SQL statements from these files and finally to generate a .C/.C++ file which can be passed as a input to C/C++ compiler.

    You can get samples of all lots of .sqc files when you install DB2 UDB ESE under samples.

    Thanks and Regards,
