Working with SQLite

SQLite is a data engine running in Android and is the native database on Android. It is different from client/server-style databases, such as SQL Server, Oracle, and DB/2.

With this type of database engine, the database runs in a separate process and typically on a separate machine. SQLite does not run on a separate machine; it runs on the same machine, Android, and runs in the same process as the application. SQLite is embedded in the application and linked to the app during the compilation process. Calls made to SQLite are not made over a network, but stay on the physical device.....
