Book Description

Storing data locally is a key part of many Android apps. SQLite is built into Android, but the low-level API that the Android SDK provides is a bit clunky to use.

Google's solution for that is Room, an object wrapper around that API. This gives us a cleaner, type-safe, reactive API for our database operations. Room is part of the Android Jetpack, and so it is a key element of Google’s recommended “stack” of technologies for building Android apps.

This book explores Room, starting with basic stuff like:

  • Adding Room to your app
  • Defining your entities and data access operation (DAO) APIs
  • Testing your database I/O
  • Using Room with Kotlin coroutines, LiveData, and RxJava
  • Migrating your database schema as your app evolves

It also gets into more elaborate scenarios, such as using SQLCipher for Android for encrypting your Room database.
