This book describes the ooSQLite framework, which is implemented as an external library package for ooRexx. External library packages are often called extensions, or native extensions. The library package extends the capability of the Rexx interpreter by adding functionality or features not present in the base interpreter.

The ooSQLite library package gives programmers access to the SQLite database engine directly from their Rexx programs. This book describes the Classes, Methods, and Funtions in ooSQLite that allow that access and describes how to use them.
