Hey guy's!im still in school in programming and just stepped in the java courses.the last course was PHP and MYSQL and we had a head first book that was really well done.

so my question is storage,my main goal is mobile,im a big android fan and would like to start apps asap..lol

my main issue is storage..what is the best type of storage i can use?there is lots of does and don't on the web...but it is hard to understand when you start...

thank's for the contest!

We have SQLite database on android. Each app can store its own database file. It is covered in contents of the book too.

There are 2 chapters in the book about use of SQLite. A useful start for database use.

Hello Mike,

Yes--we go into quite a lot of detail about using SQLite for persistent storage. We'll even give you the basics of SQL if you are new to it.
