Creating databases

 I've made a few apps now, which use an SQLite database, no problems.
In my latest app, I want two tables, and I just realised that every
example I can find only creates one table.

So, is this a limitation? Must I use only one table? Assuming I can
use two, how do I go about changing my create script? Here's a normal
one, as per the examples:

private static final String DATABASE_CREATE =
                "create table myTable (_id integer primary key autoincrement,
                        + "description text not null); " ;

If there's an example elsewhere, I'd be grateful for a link... thanks.

In onCreate() of your SQLiteOpenHelper, you can call execSQL() as many
times as you like, to execute as many SQL statements as you like. You
can have as many tables, indices, triggers, and whatnot as SQLite
allows, certainly greater than one of each.

So, call execSQL() once to create one table and once to create another
table. Or, courtesy of that semicolon, you may be able to put both
CREATE TABLE statements in a single string -- I haven't tried that.

Creating databases

 Here's an example:

        public void onCreate(SQLiteDatabase db) {
                Log.d(getClass().getName(), "Creating Database.");

and the I have final strings like the following that contain the SQL
to create the table:

    private static final String VEHICLE_CREATE =
        "create table vehicle (_id integer primary key autoincrement,
vehicle text not null,notes text, selected boolean not null default
false,vehicle_uri text,weight real default 0.0,drivetrain_loss integer
default 17);";

1. How could I get raw touch screen data

Actually I wanna detect the shape of touch point, i.e. the shape of
finger touch on the screen

Seems that the only information I can get in touch event is the size
of the touch point(by event.getSize())

By the implementation of the screen,
the shape(and pressure of each point in the shape) of the touching
finger should be the first raw data that the hardware can detect

So, how could I get these raw data?

thx very much for any help~~~~~~
