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

What are some alternatives to Android Room and pgRouting?
SQLite
SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.
GreenDAO
It is an open source Android ORM making development for SQLite databases fun again. It relieves developers from dealing with low-level database requirements while saving development time.
Realm
The Realm Mobile Platform is a next-generation data layer for applications. Realm is reactive, concurrent, and lightweight, allowing you to work with live, native objects.
Firebase
Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
DBFlow
It is fast, efficient, and feature-rich Kotlin database library built on SQLite for Android. It utilizes annotation processing to generate SQLite boilerplate for you and provides a powerful SQLite query language that makes using SQLite a joy.
