I'm relatively new to sqlite and databases in general. I've successfully setup a schema of 4 tables, each having a foreign key pointing to its parent table. The schema also has the foreign key constraint set on the child keys.
Performing a query where every table is joined with the SELECT * FROM...JOIN...ON ......... works without issue, but it is laborious manually connecting the keys.
My question is: Is it possible to perform a query/join of the tables without the ON statement which links each parent/child key relationship? Since this was already established in the schema definition, this seems to be redundant. I'm trying to simplify the sql command and make use of the parent/child relationship already defined. When I perform said query but omit the ON statements, the results are not what I expected. Any guidance is appreciated.
