At this point, for those who are well versed in SQL programming and database schemas, you might be wondering if it's possible to add triggers and key constraints to your SQLite database schemas. " In any case, to spend any time on writing and implementing triggers would be deviating too much from the core content of this book, and so I chose to omit that discussion (though these could certainly be helpful even in our simple example). Now that we have our schema created, before moving on to designing all kinds of complex queries for pulling different groups of data (this we'll see in the next chapter), it's time to write some wrapper methods.

TABLE_NAME); // CREATE NEW INSTANCE OF SCHEMA onCreate(db); } } [ 29 ] Using a SQLite Database So here we see that in our onCreate() method we execute SQL commands to create all three tables, and furthermore, in the onUpgrade() method we execute SQL commands that drop all three tables and subsequently recreate all three tables. Of course, since we are overriding the SQLiteOpenHelper class, in theory we can customize the behavior of these methods in any way we want (for instance, some developer's might not want to drop the entire schema in the onUpgrade() method), but for now let's keep the functionality simple.

This can explicitly be seen with the constructed query returned by our SQLiteQueryBuilder class in the third method: [ 50 ] Chapter 3 Just like with any programming language, you can filter logic through the use of AND/OR operators; the same applies to SQL and, specifically, with SQL WHERE filters. Instead of asking for all rows which satisfy one set of conditions, you can write queries which would return rows that satisfy all given conditions, or more loosely, just one of several given conditions.
