The DB-JOURNAL file format was developed for the use of SQLite, which is a database management software for Windows, Mac OS X and various Linux distributions. These .db-journal files are also known as SQLite database journal files.The .db-journal file format is a database archive format used by SQLite to store data that is associated with the main database file. SQLite does not store an image of the entire database in one single file. Instead, this software distributes the data between multiple db-journal files and the main database file.Primarily used as a database file format, the data stored in these DB-JOURNAL files is encoded with UTF-8 specifications. This means standard text editing applications like Notepad for Window and Apple TextEdit for Mac OS X can be used to open these .db-journal files.
