Abstract

Android uses a concept called content providers for abstracting data into services. This idea of content providers makes data sources look like REST-enabled data providers, such as web sites. In that sense, a content provider is a wrapper around data. A SQLite database on an Android device is an example of a data source that you can encapsulate into a content provider.
