class UpdateQuery_sqlite

SQLite specific implementation of UpdateQuery.

SQLite counts all the rows that match the conditions as modified, even if they will not be affected by the query. We workaround this by ensuring that we don't select those rows.

A query like this one: UPDATE test SET col1 = 'newcol1', col2 = 'newcol2' WHERE tid = 1 will become: UPDATE test SET col1 = 'newcol1', col2 = 'newcol2' WHERE tid = 1 AND (col1 <> 'newcol1' OR col2 <> 'newcol2')
