To save a large amount of structured data persistently, you need a database system. In this course, you'll discover Realm, an object-oriented database system that stores data in an object tree and performs queries at a very high speed.
Most Android apps need to save data persistently. Data saved can be the user settings, file based, and can be in a structured form. To save a large amount of structured data persistently, we need a database system. In this course, Android Realm Fundamentals, you'll discover Realm, an object-oriented database system that stores data in an object tree and performs queries at a very high speed. The database remains private to your own application, and by default cannot be accessed from outside the application. First, you'll learn the basic fundamentals of Realm and how to integrate it into your own project. Next, you'll dive further into Realm by exploring how to write queries, perform sync and async transactions, and how to implement Realm into use for creating a professional app. Finally, you'll learn miscellaneous concepts such as, Realm notifications, custom Realm configurations, database migration, and upgrading Realm schema. By the end of this course, you'll have a strong foundation and understanding of the Realm Database System in Android.

Course Overview Hi, this is Sriyank Siddhartha, and I welcome you all to my course of Android Realm Fundamentals. I am an app developer by profession and love to share knowledge in the best possible ways through my online video courses. In recent days, I have published several courses related to the Android persistent storage options, such as SharedPreferences and file system. Now it's time to explore the database system of Realm in Android. To save a large amount of structured data persistently, we need a database system. Realm is one of a kind, similar to the SQLite, though it has nothing to do with the SQLite, and data is saved persistently in the object tree. And trust me, Realm is gradually getting more popular than SQLite because of several reasons, one of which is that you do not have to write any SQL queries in the case of Realm, like we do in the case of SQLite. This course starts with the basics and fundamentals of Realm, and covers all the concepts such as, how do we integrate Realm in our project, performing insert, query, delete, and update operations, using RecyclerView with Realm, configuring Realm such as upgrading schema, applying migration, and so on. And at last, we will explore various miscellaneous concepts related to Realm such as Realm notification, performing synchronous and asynchronous queries, and so on. And we will explore each and every topic in detail by creating a demo application as well. So no significant prior knowledge of Android storage system is required to get started with this course. So by the end of this course, you will have a very strong foundation of Realm database systems in Android. So come join me, and let's together explore Realm in Android, only at Pluralsight.
