Transforming SQLITE to Run on a Bare PC

Abstract

SQLITE is a popular small open-source database management system with many versions that run on popular platforms. However, there is currently no version of the SQLITE application that runs on a bare PC. Since a bare PC does not provide any form of operating system (or kernel) support, bare PC applications need to be completely self-contained with their own interfaces to the hardware. Such applications are characterized by small code size, and have inherent security and performance advantages due to the absence of a conventional operating system. We describe a general transformation approach that can be used to transform the SQLITE application to a lean SQLITE application that runs on a bare PC. We present the current state of this work and identify several important issues that need further research.
