User dictionary in Settings

 Hi, all!

I'm developing some test codes for Android Settings(native app).

But I have some difficulties finding out what the real SQLite table is
for User dictionary words.

Does anyone have an idea about this?
In (which seems to be a provider class), I can see
only addWord() method.
In order to learn how to insert, update or delete in SQLite table,
which source file should I
check ?

Thanks in advance!

 android.provider.UserDictionary is a simple content provider.
You should be able to query it any way you like. You likely want the
Words content.

You might need to read up on content providers if you are not familiar
with them.
However, remember that the UserDictionary is not just used by your
app, so be careful what you do with it!

2. Android versions

Ok, I'm a bit behind the times here...

I am still developing with version 1.5, level 3.

1) Should I install 2.0 and develop with that? My phone is a Hero with

2) If I do install 2.0, do I need to upgrade the software on my phone?
Will my apps still work?

3) Also, if I do install 2.0, should I install 1.6 first, and then
upgrade to 2.0?

Many thanks for any advice.
