Q.1 Solution: SQLite is file based and embeddable relational database management system. As it is lite and due to its support to relational database management system it is best to use in mobile applications. So, SQLite is very appropriate to construct an embedded database system. It is light database, and it is direct file system engine that uses SQL syntax, also doesn’t require a special database server or anything.
Similarly, SQLite can easily adjust with the requirements of embedded system as it has small core, open source and database is a file which is very easy to apprehend the copy, move and cross platform sharing of database files. Now a days, SQLite use is increasing in embedded systems due to its advantages. SQLite will be more widely used in the embedded field, such as the remote control, intelligent mobile terminal, information appliances control, home medical equipment, mobile devices etc. In a multiplatform architecture SQLite having wide scope.

Q. 2 Solution:

  1. Embedded devices or applications
  2. Replacement for ad hoc disk files
  3. Stand-in for an enterprise database during testing or demos
  4. Multi-user applications
  5. Data analysis
  6. Application file format
  7. Server-side database
  8. Data transfer format
  9. Cache for enterprise data
  10. Internal or temporary database
  11. Websites
  12. File archive/ data container
  13. Education and Training
  14. Experimental SQL language extensions
