One way to do bulk updates and deletes with Appcelerator Alloy Collections
// add all items to collection
Alloy.Collections.Fugitive.reset([{
"name" : "Jeff Haynie"
}, {
"name" : "Nolan Wright"
}, {
"name" : "Don Thorp"
}, {
"name" : "Marshall Culpepper"
}, {
"name" : "Blain Hamon"
}]);
// save all the items
Alloy.Collections.Fugitive.saveAll();
// get the collection object
Alloy.Collections.instance("Fugitive");
// delete all items
Alloy.Collections.Fugitive.deleteAll();

@aaronksaunders minor optimization: take the names.push(k) out of collection.each and create the names array in a separate one-time cycle.
On a 100 element insert you'll save (100*numcols)-1 .push() calls.

@aaronksaunders I'm using this SaveAll function in my model.
I have this config:
config: {
columns: {
"jobID": "INTEGER",
"jobTitle": "TEXT",
"joblastUpdated": "TEXT",
"jobLastDayOfService": "TEXT",
"jobInstructionReported": "INTEGER",
"jobInstructions": "TEXT",
"noReports": "INTEGER",
"instructionId": "INTEGER"
},
adapter: {
type: "sql",
collection_name: "jobs",
db_name: "DB",
idAttribute:'jobID'
}
},
jobID is unique and i'm receiving this id from the backed same as other values.

Insert is working fine but i can't make insert or replace to work:
var sqlInsert = "INSERT OR REPLACE INTO " + table + " (" + names.join(",") + ") VALUES (" + q.join(",") + ");";
db.execute(sqlInsert, values);
