I've been looking for a way to attach non-volatile information to a database at creation time. We need something like the MSSQL Extended Properties, so that we can define information at creation time that our framework can request from the database and use it as data for the decision-making process, but we would like to make sure that anyone using the framework would not be able to change it, or at least make it safer than a simple "Update/Delete/Insert". Is there anyway to add this kind of information to the .udb file?

You would have to implement custom database properties by using a table (eg. of name/value pairs). With UltraLite there is no way to restrict access to tables based on user permissions, such as would be possible with a DBMS like SQL Anywhere.
