Good morning, all

    I know that you can encrypt the Pervasive.SQL V8 database.  Does this have to be programmed from the front-end app to do this or is it seeemless i.e. does Pervasive automatically encrypt/decrypt when the user makes the request for the data?

RE: Encryption

Both.  THere are a couple of different types of encryption.  You can encrypt the data files by setting that option when the Owner Name is set.  THat would require a change in the application (to pass the proper Owner Name on the open call).  
There is also "wire encryption" which encrypts the data between the client and the server.  THis is set on the client and the server (and can be passed on the application connection string).

WHat do you need the encryption for?
