Android sqlite native driver

Android-sqlite-native-driver provides the following items:
SQLiteNativeclass with native Java interface to an important subset of sqlite3 C functions
- automatic build of
sqlite-native-driver-libs.zipwith sqlite3 component for major Android NDK targets (
arm64-v8a), with sqlite3 component
This is accomplished by using GlueGen around a simple wrapper C module.
This project is meant to help build a higher-level sqlite interface library, with the JNI layer completely isolated.
NOTE: This project references the
sqlite-amalgamation subprojects, which are resolved by: $
make init (as described below).
WARNING: The sqlite database and statement handles that are returned by the
SQLiteNative library functions are raw C pointer values (with
0x100000000 added). If someone uses a database or statement handle that is not valid, or no longer valid with the
SQLiteNative library the behavior is undefined (may crash, for example). It is NOT recommended to use the API directly without understanding of how this library works internally.
FUTURE TODO: better documentation of API and some internal details
SQLite build information
SQLite build flags
NOTE: Old default page/cache size values are used to avoid a "potentially disruptive change" described at: http://sqlite.org/pgszchng2016.html
Major TODOs and limitations
- Automatic AAR build
- Document this project (again, perhaps in a blog post)
- Support BLOB type
- Some more SQLite API functions will be needed to rebuild the native sqlcipher library to replace the native libraries in the @sqlcipher / android-database-sqlcipher (SQLCipher for Android) project.

Regenerage Java & C glue code
Tested with Android-sqlite-connector.
