Is it possible to make CursorAdapter be set in recycleview, just like ListView?

I didn’t google out a solution till now to replace listview in my project, because I need to use the cursor linked with the sqlite.

Old way as followed:
listview.setAdapter(cursorAdapter) in this way, I can get the cursor to deal with data in database

    The new RecyclerView works with a new RecyclerView.Adapter base class.
    So it doesn’t work with the CursorAdapter.

    Currently there is no default implementation of RecyclerView.Adapter available.

    May be with the official release, Google will add it.

    Implementing it yourself is actually quite simple:

    public class CursorAdapter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<ViewHolder>{
        Cursor dataCursor;
        public int getItemCount() {
            return (dataCursor == null) ? 0 : dataCursor.getCount();
        public void changeCursor(Cursor cursor) {
            Cursor old = swapCursor(cursor);
            if (old != null) {
         public Cursor swapCursor(Cursor cursor) {
            if (dataCursor == cursor) {
              return null;
            Cursor oldCursor = dataCursor;
            this.dataCursor = cursor;
            if (cursor != null) {
            return oldCursor;
        private Object getItem(int position) {
            // Load data from dataCursor and return it...
