DataManagement Library Offers Android App Developers Easy Database Storage
The evolution of smartphones over the past few years has brought about massive changes in our lives. And for many developers, it has created entirely new platforms for earning their bread and butter. By making free or inexpensive mobile apps that aim to generate ad revenue or a substantial number of sales, several indie app developers are making a decent living from the comfort of their homes.
These platforms, however, are relatively new. Thus, the programming tools available aren’t as refined as those for more mature computing platforms. Furthermore, many of these indie developers are just getting started with programming. That’s why every tiny bit that helps ease mobile app development can go a long way.
Databases play an immensely important role in various types of apps, and XDA Forum Member PunchInThroat has written an open-source Java library called DataManagement to help make storing objects to database as easy as it gets. In the developer’s own words:
DataManagement is a Java Android library designed to help easily and efficiently store aggregate classes to an SQLite database. It eliminates the need to write separate classes to manage database – object interactions and allows developers to use simple methods to store, query, update, and delete objects.
Visit the forum thread to learn more out more about the library, as well as to see some code examples on how to use it when building your own Android applications.
