Public methods

createFlowable

added in version 1.1.0
Flowable<Object> createFlowable (RoomDatabase database, 
                String... tableNames)

Creates a Flowable that emits at least once and also re-emits whenever one of the observed tables is updated.

You can easily chain a database operation to downstream of this Flowable to ensure that it re-runs when database is modified.

Since database invalidation is batched, multiple changes in the database may results in just 1 emission.

Parameters
database RoomDatabase: The database instance

tableNames String: The list of table names that should be observed

Returns
Flowable<Object> A Flowable which emits NOTHING when one of the observed tables is modified (also once when the invalidation tracker connection is established).
