I was wondering why Sqlite3 has been chosen as the default for Rails 2.0.2. What does it have over MySQL to warrant such a change?

That’s interesting. I take it you only use it for the early stages of development and then switch to something like MySQL later?
Are there any changes you have to make to your source code to accommodate the switch?

SQLite Manager 0.2.11 Homepage
by Mrinal Kant
Manage any SQLite database on your computer.
Manage any SQLite database on your computer. An intuitive heirarchical
tree showing database objects. Helpful dialogs to manage tables, indexes,
views and triggers. You can browse and search the tables, as well as add,
edit and delete the records. Facility to execute any sql query. A
dropdown menu helps with the sql syntax thus making writing sql easier.
Easy access to common operations through menu, toolbars, buttons and
context-menu. Export tables/views in csv or xml format
I spotted a Tk GUI recently too.
Most Rails developers would have been using Sqlite anyway in development
and test modes. Its really fast, and its also very easy to run sqlite in memory
And then move on the next of many riddles posed in trying to follow
AWDWR using Rails 2!

I've actually written a post regarding some help for beginners who just
started using the book with Rails 2.0. The short answer, if you don't
want to read through my post is to use the command
rails -d mysql depot
