Disabling Direct Mode in LiteDAC and UniDAC

LiteDAC and UniDAC interact with SQLite in 2 approaches. The first approach is that an application uses functions of the linked SQLite library. For Windows OS it is sqlite3.dll, for Mac OS and iOS – libsqlite3.dylib, for Android – libsqlite.so. The second approach allows to connect to the database from the application directly, using so called Direct Mode. Direct Mode provides interaction with SQLite avoiding any external libraries linking. It is implemented by embedding the code of the SQLite library directly to the application. This approach allows to work with SQLite in cases, when using third-party libraries is impossible due to a number of reasons. For example, when developing applications for iOS or Mac OS, the Apple corporation prohibits deployment of any libraries along with the application.
