A Comparison of Android ORMs

Although mobile apps do not rely on databases as much as, say, web applications, mobile app developers should still be interested in databases. There are better database solutions for Android apps than a native SQLite library; we’ll nominate ORMs (Object Relational Mapping) as one of them.ORMs make developers’ lives easier. They let us avoid struggling with building queries by concatenating strings or manually handling the connection with database. Typos are less of threat to your queries. And, with ORMs taking care of security, you don’t have to worry about resistance to injection attacks. You can focus on your application functionalities and let the database do its job.
