Android's Architecture Components

In 2017, Google introduced the Architecture Components library, with Google-supplied implementations of object-relational mapping (ORM) capabilities and lifecycle-aware components. There is little doubt that this library will be a key part of Google's recommended app development stack going forward.

This book dives deep into the Architecture Components, showing you how they work individually and in concert. With dozens of sample projects, the book covers much of what blog posts miss, in terms of how to make this library work in practice.

At the present time, this book is in a "beta" state.

This book is published in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI/Kindle formats, for use in your favorite digital book reader.
