AndroidDatabaseLibraryComparison

A test between a few of the popular libraries running a speed test on how fast they load and save data.

Note: SugarORM and ActiveAndroid and Sprinkles were removed because they're too slow. If you're curious how well they run, you can uncomment the lines in MainActivity. SugarORM was a lot slower on load/save. ActiveAndroid and Sprinkles were a lot slower than the remaining comparisons on save.

Benchmark Description

There are two benchmarks. The Simple trial uses a flat schema for an address book so each row is composed of name, address, city, state, and phone columns. The Simple trial does 25000 copies of the AddressItem.

Simple Address Item Schema

The Complex trial is hierarchical and has support for multiple address books where each address book has contacts and addresses. The Complex trial does 50 copies of the AddressBook.
