Using of DataBaseHelper Class

Once the projected is created create a new class in your project src directory and name it as DataBaseHendler.java(Right click on src/package – New – Class)

Now extend your DatabaseHandler.java class from SQLiteOpenHelper.

public class DataBaseHendler extends SqLiteOpenHelper {

After extends your class from SqLiteOpenHelper you need to override two method onCreate() and onUpgrade.

onCreate():-These is where we need to write create table statements. This is called when database is created.

onUpgrade():-This method is called when database is upgraded like modifying the table structure, adding constraints to database .

Create DataBaseHelper Class
Right click on package Name – New – Java Class

For Ex:-

public class DataBaseHelper extends SQLiteOpenHelper {
    // Database version name
    private static final int DATABASE_VERSION = 1;
    // Database name
    private static final String DATBASE_NAME = "regForm.db";

      public static final String TABLE_NAME = "user";
      public static final String USER_ID = "_id";
     public static final String NAME = "name";
     public static final String EMAIL = "email";

    public DataBaseHelper(Context context) {
        super(context, DATBASE_NAME, null, DATABASE_VERSION);
    }

    //Creating Tables
    @Override
    public void onCreate(SQLiteDatabase db) {
String CREATE_USER_TABLE = "create table " + TABLE_NAME
                + " ( " + USER_ID + " integer  primary key autoincrement,"
                + NAME + " TEXT,"
                + EMAIL + " TEXT,"
db.execSQL(CREATE_USER_TABLE);    }
    // Upgrading database
    @Override
    public void onUpgrade(SQLiteDatabase db, int oldVersion, int newVersion) {

    }
}

Inserting new Record in the Table

To Insert a new Record in Table we need to create an Object of ContentValues class and put the Values in this like:

 // Assign value for each row
    ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
    values.put(KEY_NAME, contact.getName()); // Contact Name
    values.put(KEY_PH_NO, contact.getAddress()); // Contact Address
    // Insert the row into your table
    db.insert(TABLE_CONTACTS, null, values);
    db.close(); // Closing database connection
}

Reading Row

For Ex:

Deleting Record

deleteContact() will delete single contact from database.
   deleteContact()
public void deleteContact(Contact contact){
SqLiteDatabase db=this.getWriteableDatabase();
 Db.delete(TABLE_CONTACTS, KEY_ID + “ ?”, new String [] { String.valueof(contact.getid)});
Db.close();
}
