Android SQLite is the best way to save data locally in the device itself. SQLite acts as a local database for applications saving data in tradition columns rows architecture. It is suited where data is structured and repeating, for example, user data information. Here we will discuss the implementation of SQLite form beginning using API’s of android.database.sqlite package.

Data limits allowed in SQLite is explained here

In my  Android SQLite Example Source Code, there are some major points which need to be discussed separately. So I will break It into multiple but interlinked posts. These will be like this:

  1. Integrate SQLite in Android Studio Beginning from a new project.

  2. Adding methods to Create Database, provide table name, Inserting data into the table.

  3. Deleting data in the table and refresh ListView after a row is removed successfully.

  4. Update row data using ListView with editable EditText controls.


Let’s start with the first step to implementing SQLite in a new project…

Step 1) Open Android Studio and create a new project with Empty Activity Selection.


Step 2) Next we will create “DataBaseHelper” which will extend “SQLiteOpenHelper” which is a helper class to manage database creation and version management.


Step 3) Create “UsersDatabaseAdapter” this class will have UPSERT Operation methods that we will execute in the database.


Step 4) In “MainActivity” get an instance of “UsersDatabaseAdapter” to create DATABASE and TABLE.

Before OnCreate add

In OnCreate method add

It will look like this

Here we discussed the integration of basic file required to Create DATABASE and TABLE where we will Insert some data to play with.
