Creating UltraLite databases

There are two types of database creation methods:

  • Desktop creation methods with UltraLite administration tools designed for this purpose.
  • On-device creation methods with UltraLite APIs. On-device creation methods are primarily described in each API specific UltraLite programming book.

Once the database is created, you can connect to it and build the tables and other database objects you need.


Unless you want to use default values, you must set the creation parameter values when you create a database. Once the database has been created you cannot change these values. If you need to change any database property, you must re-create the database, specifying a different value for the creation parameter.

Sharing a database among multiple platforms

Within the configuration differences imposed by different operating systems, you might be able to copy the database from one device to another. If you are unsure of property compatibility among multiple platforms, create a database in Sybase Central with the UltraLite Create Database Wizard. This wizard handles the file compatibility logic for you. In so doing, it prevents you from creating a file that is not supported on your combination of deployment devices.
