Abstract

In Chapters 25 and 26, we covered content providers and their close cousins, the loaders. We listed the benefits of exposing data through content provider abstraction. In a content provider abstraction, data is exposed as a series of URLs. These data URLs can be used to read, query, update, insert, and delete. These URLs and their corresponding cursors become the API for that content provider.
