In Memory SQL type tables
I am looking for a way to implement In Memory Tables. I have a some data that I need to access quite fast, but I also need the functionality that an SQL table offers me. Eg Querries for searching, etc. So is there any way I can load an SQL type table into memory and then Querry that table?.
I could implement, say some dyanamic data stuctures and then write some operations for them, but that seems to be a lot of work. Moreover I would have to make a lot of changes in my existing code. What I am looking for here is that, in the normal case when my prog executes a Querry from a table, that table is on the disk and so the Querry takes time. I was tinking if there was some way to load that same same table into memory and then Querry it from there.
Thanks in anticipation.
All operating systems cache files to memory. So I think you can just place your database in a file and the operationg system will take care of the performance.
You won't really gain anything trying to re-invent things that have already been used for tens of years now.
Sorry for such a late reply. Actually I was away for sometime so couldn't reply.
I think you didn't quite get what I was trying to accomplish. I had posted a similar question on cprogramming.com and got a very good reply.
Here's a link to the thread.
Here are some more links for someone who might be facing the same problem:
1) This is the SQLITE home page.
Go to "Information On SQLite Internals"--->"InMemoryDatabase: Notes on how to use SQLite for in-memory tables."
