  • Course details

    Android developers who need to manage and present data have many tools available to them in the application framework of Android. This course covers a variety of data persistence techniques, including storing data in shared preferences—key-value pairs—in JSON-formatted text files, and in relational databases with SQLite. Join David Gassner as he demonstrates these data management techniques. He also explains how to use relevant design patterns to model data with Java classes, and how to present data to the user with the Android SDK's ListView and RecyclerView components.

  • Welcome

    - [Instructor] My name is David Gassner. Welcome to this course about managing and presenting data in Android apps. After a discussion of design patterns for modeling data with Java classes, I'll describe some of the Android SDK's data presentation tools, including the older list view, and its successor, recycler view. Using both of these components, I'll show you how to customize your data display, and handle common events. Then I'll move to data persistence. I'll show how to work with shared preferences, key value pairs that are stored in XML files and are managed automatically by the SDK. Then I'll describe how to create your own files in internal and external persistent storage, and how to create and read JSON formatted data files, with the GSON library from Google. And finally, I'll show you how to create and manage an SQLite database, for working with more complex relational data. I hope that this course helps you improve your Android programming skills, and helps you get ready…
