This feature is asked for from time to time and there are some ideas
floating around, but nothing has been implemented yet. It is a big
and not very well defined problem. Here is some further reading if
you are interested:


In the meantime, with a bit of effort it should be possible to read
the SQLite schema (from the database) and generate ODB-persistent C++
classes. Since you only need to generate classes that fit your
specific requirements, you can sidestep a lot of the issues that
are described above and that a generic solution would face.
