Embedded InnoDB library
Made for application developers, device makers and ISVs, Embedded InnoDB provides all the high-performance, proven and reliable data management features of InnoDB in an embeddable form, without the overhead, footprint or unneeded features of the MySQL server.
Embedded InnoDB is used independently of MySQL. It is not a plugin, nor a storage engine for MySQL. It is designed to be linked directly into application programs, and provides highly efficient, low-level database management services, not using SQL.
Embedded InnoDB provides the features, functions and capabilities that embedded applications require:
* Embedded InnoDB delivers all the high-performance and reliability capabilities of the InnoDB storage engine, including concurrency control, sophisticated indexing, crash recovery and more.
* For application programmers, Embedded InnoDB provides a non-SQL, ISAM-like API for creating and querying tables and executing other data management functions.
* Designed for use in environments without a database administrator, Embedded InnoDB configuration is fully automatic and has all the operational characteristics needed for stand-alone applications and devices.
