isopen

Determine if SQLite connection is open

Description

example

i = isopen(conn) uses the MATLAB® interface to SQLite to return 1 if the SQLite database connection is open and 0 if it is closed or invalid.

Examples

Connect to an SQLite database and verify the database connection. Then, import data from the database into MATLAB®. Determine the highest unit cost among the retrieved products in the table. Close the database connection.

Create the SQLite connection conn to the existing SQLite database file tutorial.db. The database file contains the table productTable. The SQLite connection is an sqlite object.

dbfile = "tutorial.db";
conn = sqlite(dbfile);

Determine if the database connection is open. The isopen function returns the numeric scalar 1, which means the database connection is open.

i = isopen(conn)
i = logical
   1

Select all the data from productTable and sort it by the product number. data is a table containing the imported data that results from executing the SQL SELECT statement.

sqlquery = "SELECT * FROM productTable ORDER BY productNumber";
data = fetch(conn,sqlquery);

Display the first three rows of data.

Determine the highest unit cost in the table.

Close the database connection.

close(conn)

Determine if the database connection is closed. The isopen function returns the numeric scalar 0, which means the database connection is closed. If the database connection is invalid, the isopen function returns the same result.

i = isopen(conn)
i = logical
   0
