Each SQLite® database is stored in a single file. If you only specify the database name as the parameter value to DatabaseFactory.create() , the database file is created on the SD card of the device. The default location for the database file is /SDCard/databases/<application_name>/ . The name of the application that creates the database is included in the path to avoid name collisions.
You can create database files in eMMC memory, on devices that support it, by specifying the corresponding file system path.
