The SQLite database

This application employs a simple database structure created with the sqlite3 application. We interact with sqlite3 from the adb shell environment, as shown in figure 13.7.

The purpose of this database is to record some data each time Daytime Server processes an incoming request. From a data perspective this sample is a bit boring as it simply records the system time plus the text returned to the client, which is a ctime formatted time string. Though somewhat redundant from a data perspective, the purpose is to demonstrate the use of SQLite from our C application, utilizing the Android/Linux resident sqlite3 library,

The previous section of code outlined the syntax for inserting a row into the database; this section shows how to interact with the database using the sqlite3 tool. The sequence shown in figure 13.7 is broken out and explained in listing 13.9.
