In order to map your Java class fields to SQLite columns, you will need to define a create table statement. Annyce talks you through this process, step-by-step, in this video.
- [Instructor] Let's start with onCreate.…Notice here on line 18 that we receive an instance…of the SQLiteDatabase class as a parameter.…What we want to do is use it…to provide the queries that we'll need…in order to create our individual tables.…To do this we're going to use the execute SQL method…of the SQLiteDatabase class.…We'll start out by typing db.executeSQL.…
This method takes a string that contains the query…for creating the table.…Let's start with our recipe table.…Instead of defining the string in line here,…we're going to add it to our RecipeContract class.…Remember, we use this class…in order to keep our code neat and maintainable.…So, let's switch back over to RecipeContract.…Right above where we've defined the recipe entry class…we're going to add a new string…that corresponds to our create statement.…
Here on line nine we're going to create…a static final string,…and we're going to call it CREATE_RECIPE_ENTRY_TABLE.…Then we're going to type equals…and we'll type enter to put this on a new line…as this is going to be a very lengthy string.…
To begin, Annyce Davis reviews using the de facto data persistence solution available on Android: SQLite. She takes you through basic SQLite concepts—such as how to create a database wrapper and insert data into a table—as well as a few more advanced topics. Next, she covers working with Cupboard, an open-source project dedicated to simplifying your SQLite interactions. To wrap up, she dives into working with Realm, an object database solution designed with mobile devices in mind. Throughout the course, Annyce discusses establishing relationships between database tables, creating and running queries, as well as performing data migrations.
