Database tips and advice? Use SQLite?



So I have got pretty far in this book on Chapter 26. With the reading I have completed I am not sure how to go about about managing databases and accessing stored data via SQL client. I am familiar with what has been done with the Core Data framework from chapter 16 and accessing web services in Chapter 25. But I am not sure how I would go about setting up my database once my app wanted to save, update, insert data. I am not quite seeing what I’m looking for in Chapter 29 (it may be there but did not notice).

Are there any resources you can point me to on iOS database management, setup, and clients to use (for managing your database)? (Links are appreciated)

What database technology are your using? SQLite etc?

Thank you in advance for any response!
