I would like to write a client application for Android that uses the Google App Engine as a database backend. My Android client would connect to the App Engine to save information, then it would connect later for reports. Is it possible to use the App Engine as a backend like this?
ive been looking for a week now i need some help connecting to a remote database...i want my app to get data out of the database and update the database.ive tried this http://www.helloandroid.com/tutorials/connecting-mysql-database but i dont understand it.
Good morning everyone, I am new to programming with Java and Android, I'm trying to make an application to seek an xml in a web address and contains information that should be saved in my sql lite ... The doubt is as follows: I have to download and save the xml file on the device or can just work with it in memory, example: xml = xml.create (www.meusite.com.br / meuxml.xml); how would you do?
I am developing an Android app that will display a random quote or verse to the user. For this I am using an SQLite database. The size of the DB would be approximately 5K to 10K records, possibly increasing to upto 1M in later versions as new quotes and verses are added. Thus the user would need to update the DB as and when newer versions are of the app or DB are released.
After reading through some forums online, there seem to be two feasible ways I could provide the DB: 1. Bundle it along with the .APK file of the app, or 2. Upload it to my app's website from where users will have to download it
I want to know which method would be better (if there is yet another approach other than these, please do let me know).
After pondering this problem for some time, I have these thoughts regarding the above approaches:
Approach 1: Users will obtain the DB along with the app, and won't have to download it separately. Installation would thereby be easier. But, users will have to reinstall the app every time there is a new version of the DB. Also, if the DB is large, it will make the installable too cumbersome.
Approach 2: Users will have to download the full DB from the website (although I can provide a small, sample version of the DB via Approach 1). But, the installer will be simpler and smaller in size. Also, I would be able to provide future versions of the DB easily for those who might not want newer versions of the app.
I want to connect to sql server from android but i can't find how... I can't seem to find any information on connecting to a SQL Server DB to retrieve & add data. i find that i must use web service but i don't see how write it and how read my sql server database.
I have an android APP. I need to connect to a remote D.B. on the internet. All i know is that i have to use a Web Service, installed on the remote DB server.With my Android APP i have to connect to the web service, and the web service will do the logical operations to get the necesary data from the D.B. and will send them to me. the web service is not a problem, i have a friend that will do it (i have no idea about web services), but i dont know how i have to do the connexion with the Web Services, and also i dont know how have to be the functions of the Web Service.I have searched for tutorials on google but i can't find a good tutorial for beginners like me.can someone give me a little help? for example, a good tutorial for beginners connecting android to a remote DB with webservices?
when i open it using sqllight data browser it works fine but after adding it to new directory in my android project called databases/test1.db. Code...
I am not getting any information in the cursor in existInDataBase() function to be more specific I'm always getting false for cursor.moveToFirst() even when my query is just to select without any thing
can someone please : 1.tell me what he thinks is wrong 2.how can i debug and see what there is in the db (i debug but i cant see anything odd should i had a if saying "you have no data base")note " when i builded the app the first time the app was the the one who build the db as you can see in private void insertValus(String typeInserted , int num);
my problem seems to be the manifest file: when one takes a db file and import it to his android project what should he do ?please explain in steps what should i do thanks yoav.
I am working on an app that will need to connect to an external database and pull certain columns. I am looking for some help in opening a connection to the database. In another words, something like ODBC or JDBC in web development.
I was reading the documentation regarding the Geocoder class and the description says:
"The Geocoder class requires a backend service that is not included in the core android framework."
I assume this means that the proprietary Google Maps API's provides this backend service which routes through the Google Maps service. I searched around trying to find information on constructing my own Geocoder backend service but have come up nil. Is there any way to produce a custom backend for the Geocoder class?
If it helps formulate a better response I'm trying to determine locations based on the GPS coordinates to produce areas such as streets, cities, parks, shopping centers, etc. If something like this already exists then I'd be more than happy to use it, but from what I've seen searching around no such service exists for an Android application.
I'm really hoping someone here has seen something like this. I'm essentially looking for a notepad app for the Android. But there is a trick to this. I want the notes to be saved and synced as accessible documents on GoogleDocs so that I can edit them on my Mac. On the Android, this should be a simple notebook / notepad app.
I'm trying to connect my program to a Mysql Database. The ling between my Android emulator and my server is OK, the ping is good. Moreother, I checked the connexion with a PhP script and everything is ok.
I would like to connect my program directly to the dataBase, using JDBC, et the J-connector. I added it to my project, and the code I use to etablish the connexion is :
I'm building a client server android app that has to do with stores and I want (when the user is close to 2 or 3 stores with their database online) my app to understand that he can connect to one of these stores' databases and list them to the screen. (just what is happenning with the available wifis when we want to connect to the internet) How can I achieve that? I hope I made clear what I'm looking for.
According to the Geocoder documentation, the class provides methods into a backend service which may or may not exist on the device. If the geocoder doesn't exist on the device, theoretically a geocode request will return no results. However, how can one differentiate between no results due to there being no backend geocoder service vs. there being no results because the location makes no sense? My app already requires the Google Maps API, so perhaps this is a moot point; as a secondary question, does the Google Maps API always include a Geocoder?
I'm trying to deploy an application with an existing SQLite database.I've been reading though the examples that are posted but they are always missing some part of the class. I feel like I'm trying to bake muffins but no one told me to use baking powder.Can someone post a full database helper class for depoying an SQLite database on Android? Edit : Delete old code because it doesn't work.
I'm currently developing a Field-Service application that stores data in the local sqlite database on an android device. At some point, usually after completing the data collection rounds, the local sqlite db is to be synchronized to a remote sybase db on the server.Any suggestions as to how this could be achieved or engineered as a solution? Or even better, are there alternatives to synchronizing data in such an application?
I want to build my own cloned databases of all or some of the Android native databases like Contacts, Calllogs, Mediastore, Settings, etc. I want to know wheher it is possible and How I can know the database schemas of these databases? Is there any documentation on this?
Iam connecting 3G phone for my Android device for internet connection and another Socket(SPP) for CAN signal receiving.Whenever I manually connect to the Bluetooth tethering via 3G phone, i can browse internet perfectly and speed is good.Whenever programmatically connect to the 3G connection, i couldn't browse internet.i checked in shell and observing that in my mobile 'device is connected' message displayed and E symbol appears.No problem for me to connect Socket.But I got problem to use 3G phone.For this iam using APN/DUN mode.I checked both but no use.Is there any performance issue here or anything wrong to connect different devices by using Bluetooth API in android.Why this happends while connecting Mobile programmatically.
I know that this was asked before, but he one I found only pointed the person to the android sdk and documentation and I'm sre that there must be an easier way for doing what I wanna do.OK, so I have a mobile site I built specifically for his purpose, which is sitting online as we speak, but I want to put it in an app.so basically I want to have something with a browser in it that will only load my site (hiding teh URL off course creating the illusion of an app).Is there any way to do this quickly and easily with having to install eclipse and all that? Maybe a freestanding application that can just "frame" a site like that?
I cannot seem to login to a particular website. I get a server error and their help desk says it may be that I need to clear the cache and enable cookies. Well I did that and it did not help. I then installed another browser (Dolphin H) and the problem persists. I ahve used quite a bit of time to solve the problem but I am stumped. I can login into other secure websites but not this one
Just wondering why there is not a androidforums app for this website. To make it easier to come and check stuff out then going online and going through all of the trouble. Is there any plans in the making? Please make it cheap or free.
Aviator Android Apps | Ultimate guide to aviation apps for Android devices Just found this. Apparently its a new site that is trying to emulate a similar site for apps for the iPhone. Any pilots on the forum? If so, share your aviation apps cause that site is kinda sparse at the moment.
Alright so I've been experiencing some problems with downloading apps from the market and would like to try to download the file its self to my computer and then install it on my G1.Could anyone please give me a website where I can do so?
