(The above solution is for MS SQL btw, so you can safely ignore it, it's not the same as MySQL)

Isn't it just better to have it access an admin page (php) to do all your database work? That way it works universally (any browser, phone/tablet/PC/Mac).
Here's something to help you along the way that will keep you busy for a few days (for the android specific way, not the general PHP way: http://www.androidhive.info/2012/05/how-to-connect-android-with-php-mysql/)

If you were talking about a local DB (instead of the universal MySQL solutions which are online based), then you should use the native SQL DB of Android, builtin as SQLite, accessible through the standard Android API (android.database.sqlite see: http://developer.android.com/training/basics/data-storage/databases.html)
