pgRouting vs Android Room: What are the differences?
pgRouting: Routing and network analysis in PostgreSQL. It is an extension of PostGIS and PostgreSQL geospatial database and adds routing and other network analysis functionality; Android Room: *Save data in a local database *. It provides an abstraction layer over SQLite to allow fluent database access while harnessing the full power of SQLite. Apps that handle non-trivial amounts of structured data can benefit greatly from persisting that data locally. The most common use case is to cache relevant pieces of data.
pgRouting and Android Room can be categorized as "Database" tools.
Some of the features offered by pgRouting are:
- All Pairs Shortest Path, Johnson’s Algorithm
- All Pairs Shortest Path, Floyd-Warshall Algorithm
- Shortest Path A*
On the other hand, Android Room provides the following key features:
- Provides an abstraction layer over SQLite
- Allows fluent database access while harnessing the full power of SQLite
- Cache relevant pieces of data
