+Our SQLiteJDBC library requires no configuration since native libraries for major OSs, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux etc., are assembled into a single JAR (Java Archive) file. The usage is quite simple; [download](https://bitbucket.org/xerial/sqlite-jdbc/downloads)
+The current sqlite-jdbc implementation is based on the code of [Zentus's SQLite JDBC driver (missing link)](http://www.zentus.com/sqlitejdbc/). We have improved it in two ways:
+* Support major operating systems by embedding native libraries of SQLite, compiled for each of them.
+In the original version, in order to use the native version of sqlite-jdbc, users had to set a path to the native codes (dll, jnilib, so files, etc.) through the command-line arguments,
