ca309f212d560673276aec0f4168a6c56131260c 13-Jun-2012 Jeff Brown <jeffbrown@google.com> Print extended SQLite error code.

Bug: 6538393
Change-Id: I2b010c6a1127887717af67ec588c3df8bf41afe6
9d25fa67a9291d469fa4006b2a373c8429132536 05-Jun-2012 Jeff Brown <jeffbrown@google.com> Report extended error information from SQLite.

The error code number is not as informative as the SQLite error
message, in particular because the error code has been stripped
of extended error information. Make sure we ask SQLite for the
full error message whenever possible.

75ea64fc54f328d37b115cfb1ded1e45c30380ed 26-Jan-2012 Jeff Brown <jeffbrown@google.com> Implement a cancelation mechanism for queries.

Added new API to enable cancelation of SQLite and content provider
queries by means of a CancelationSignal object. The application
creates a CancelationSignal object and passes it as an argument
to the query. The cancelation signal can then be used to cancel
the query while it is executing.

If the cancelation signal is raised before the query is executed,
then it is immediately terminated.

48a4789686412390f9efd3bad0bfcaa3efbf9bfc 20-Jan-2012 Jeff Brown <jeffbrown@google.com> Remove custom SQLITE_UNCLOSED error code.

This error code was introduced at some point to help track when
a database could not be closed because a statement was not finalized.
Now that the DB wrappers have been rewritten, it is technically no longer
poossible for this to happen, so we can remove this.

e5360fbf3efe85427f7e7f59afe7bbeddb4949ac 01-Nov-2011 Jeff Brown <jeffbrown@google.com> Rewrite SQLite database wrappers.

The main theme of this change is encapsulation. This change
preserves all existing functionality but the implementation
is now much cleaner.

Instead of a "database lock", access to the database is treated
as a resource acquisition problem. If a thread's owns a database
connection, then it can access the database; otherwise, it must
acquire a database connection first, and potentially wait for other
threads to give up theirs. The SQLiteConnectionPool encapsulates
the details of how connections are created, configured, acquired,
released and disposed.

One new feature is that SQLiteConnectionPool can make scheduling
decisions about which thread should next acquire a database
connection when there is contention among threads. The factors
considered include wait queue ordering (fairness among peers),
whether the connection is needed for an interactive operation
(unfairness on behalf of the UI), and whether the primary connection
is needed or if any old connection will do. Thus one goal of the
new SQLiteConnectionPool is to improve the utilization of
database connections.

To emulate some quirks of the old "database lock," we introduce
the concept of the primary database connection. The primary
database connection is the one that is typically used to perform
write operations to the database. When a thread holds the primary
database connection, it effectively prevents other threads from
modifying the database (although they can still read). What's
more, those threads will block when they try to acquire the primary
connection, which provides the same kind of mutual exclusion
features that the old "database lock" had. (In truth, we
probably don't need to be requiring use of the primary database
connection in as many places as we do now, but we can seek to refine
that behavior in future patches.)

Another significant change is that native sqlite3_stmt objects
(prepared statements) are fully encapsulated by the SQLiteConnection
object that owns them. This ensures that the connection can
finalize (destroy) all extant statements that belong to a database
connection when the connection is closed. (In the original code,
this was very complicated because the sqlite3_stmt objects were
managed by SQLiteCompiledSql objects which had different lifetime
from the original SQLiteDatabase that created them. Worse, the
SQLiteCompiledSql finalizer method couldn't actually destroy the
sqlite3_stmt objects because it ran on the finalizer thread and
therefore could not guarantee that it could acquire the database
lock in order to do the work. This resulted in some rather
tortured logic involving a list of pending finalizable statements
and a high change of deadlocks or leaks.)

Because sqlite3_stmt objects never escape the confines of the
SQLiteConnection that owns them, we can also greatly simplify
the design of the SQLiteProgram, SQLiteQuery and SQLiteStatement
objects. They no longer have to wrangle a native sqlite3_stmt
object pointer and manage its lifecycle. So now all they do
is hold bind arguments and provide a fancy API.

All of the JNI glue related to managing database connections
and performing transactions is now bound to SQLiteConnection
(rather than being scattered everywhere). This makes sense because
SQLiteConnection owns the native sqlite3 object, so it is the
only class in the system that can interact with the native
SQLite database directly. Encapsulation for the win.

One particularly tricky part of this change is managing the
ownership of SQLiteConnection objects. At any given time,
a SQLiteConnection is either owned by a SQLiteConnectionPool
or by a SQLiteSession. SQLiteConnections should never be leaked,
but we handle that case too (and yell about it with CloseGuard).

A SQLiteSession object is responsible for acquiring and releasing
a SQLiteConnection object on behalf of a single thread as needed.
For example, the session acquires a connection when a transaction
begins and releases it when finished. If the session cannot
acquire a connection immediately, then the requested operation
blocks until a connection becomes available.

SQLiteSessions are thread-local. A SQLiteDatabase assigns a
distinct session to each thread that performs database operations.
This is very very important. First, it prevents two threads
from trying to use the same SQLiteConnection at the same time
(because two threads can't share the same session).
Second, it prevents a single thread from trying to acquire two
SQLiteConnections simultaneously from the same database (because
a single thread can't have two sessions for the same database which,
in addition to being greedy, could result in a deadlock).

There is strict layering between the various database objects,
objects at lower layers are not aware of objects at higher layers.
Moreover, objects at higher layers generally own objects at lower
layers and are responsible for ensuring they are properly disposed
when no longer needed (good for the environment).

API layer: SQLiteDatabase, SQLiteProgram, SQLiteQuery, SQLiteStatement.
Session layer: SQLiteSession.
Connection layer: SQLiteConnectionPool, SQLiteConnection.
Native layer: JNI glue.

By avoiding cyclic dependencies between layers, we make the
architecture much more intelligible, maintainable and robust.

Finally, this change adds a great deal of new debugging information.
It is now possible to view a list of the most recent database
operations including how long they took to run using
"adb shell dumpsys dbinfo". (Because most of the interesting
work happens in SQLiteConnection, it is easy to add debugging
instrumentation to track all database operations in one place.)
