In this screencast, we’ll talk about null values, which can tend to sneak into any large application that has been around for some time. We’ll go over our philosophy on data integrity and our thoughts on nulls, and what to do about them in an existing app with null constraints.
We're continuing our look at adding integrity to an already existing database backed web application. In this screencast we will be adding a uniqueness constraint. This is one of the more difficult constraints to add to existing data as you must come up with a way to get rid of duplicates.
As applications are developed you will often need to add additional fields to your database. The architecture component Room achieves this by using Migrations. In this screencast, you will learn how to test your database migrations so you can be confident that your apps data is maintained in a clean state.
