I'm searching information about how i can access a specific database that to not belong to me, and that is store in /data/data/com.... directory is it possible without root access? it it possible with root access, and how?
I use a sqlite database in my project. The stored data in it must not be available for the user to edit. As I've read here I saw that if you have root access you can alter sqlite database. The only solution would be to encrypt database content, but this would be time consuming for device. Any solution to prevent access to database ?
I'm developing an Android application with a database. That database will have more than three tables. Now I'm working on a class called DBAdapter to access the SQLite Database. DBAdpater will have five methods for every table on database (insertEntry, removeEntry, getAllEntries, getEntry and updateEntry). So, if I have five table, DBApadter will have more than twenty-five methods. I think is so huge. How may DBAdapter classes should be?
Lets say that I have an app that lets you browse through a listing of cars found in a Sqlite database. When you click on a car in the listing, it'll open up a view with the description of the car and a photo of the car.My question is: should I keep the photo in the database as a binary data column in the row for this specific car, or should I have the photo somewhere in the resources directory? Which is better to do? Are there any limitations of Sqlite in terms of how big a binary data column can be?The database will be pretty much be read only and bundled with the app (so the user wouldn't be inserting any cars and their photos).
i'm trying to access (read & write) from non-default (example 2nd table) table of a sqlite database which i created using sqlite database browser. but somehow, i cant seems to find the way to access it.
I am developing an application for android phone, In this I need to use at least 400 audio file which can be played for some respective texts,Now my question is which is the optimized way to do this.One solution is putting all the audio files in the resource folder and referring from there, this will never be a feasible solution as the application size will increase. Is there any way to convert the audio file into some format and dump into the SQLite database and retrievr flexibly.
I want to add files to java app in android so I'll know their path and can access them. How can I do it? (It doesn't matter where they will be the most important is that I can access them and I'll know the relative path of the them)
I want to know when a close method of a sqlite database should be called in a life cycle, since the NotePad sample in the sdk (http://developer.android.com/resources/tutorials/notepad/index.html) doesn't call NotesDbAdapter.close(), it implements that method though.
My application accesses the db not so frequently, but some, it depends on user requests. I think I should open the db at the onCreate, and close it at the onDestroy. Is that a good practice?
I'm trying to insert values on Android SQLite Database. The question is, Iḿ trying to insert a word, the table has 3 columns, ID, WORD, COUNT. When I insert a word in the database, some method will verify if this word exists on the database. If yes, it will increment the value of COUNT for this word.
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 already found out that there is no way to bundle files in an .apk and have them on /sdcard, the best option so far being to download the large files upon first run. I came accross a tutorial saying how to bundle an sqlite db with the apk and then copy it so that it can be accessed with SQLiteDatabase (thus doubling the space needed, and not using /sdcard at all).
http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html#db says all databases MUST be in /data/data/package_name/databases.
Is that really so? Is there a way to trick the framework into opening a database that is placed on the /sdcard partition? Is there a way to use another SQLite java wrapper/framework to access such databases?
If the answer to the above is 'No', what other options do I have? My data is very well represented in a relational model, but is just too big, plus, I want to be able to update it without the need to reinstall/upgrade the entire app.
I currently have an AWS instance running Ubuntu 12.04 and use NoMachine NX client to access via FreeNX. I also have the Java in place on the instance and that gives me access from any device with the NX client installed or via a web browser that runs Java JRE.
Ubuntu Desktop version is from here: [URL]
Unfortunately I cannot find a way for either of those methods that is compatible with Android on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (great phablet by the way).
how I can might be able to access my Ubuntu Cloud Desktop on AWS from my Android device? I don't mind rebuilding the instance if there is a good way to do this.
I'm new to Android, I just finished the Notepad Tutorials, where we can create SQLite Databases to save notes. So I wanted to know if it was possible to "import" my own SQLite database (not created with my App but with a 3rd-party software) to my project, and if the answer is yes, where should I save my SQLite databse and how can I have access to it.
I'm doing a application that will use a database with serialized object. The objects will be already serialized and the user will just display things. On a PC I would just make an XML but with android I'm not sure. Can I make an XML and "unpack" it when the user launch the application for the first time or should I do something else?
I put my database field in "assets" folder. And use the code from this blog to copy the database to "/data/data/my_packname/databases/", (This copy code i run it in the onCreate() method when i run this app) then use select * from ... to get data. But it gives me the exception: no such table. Someone told me that if i am attempting to copy the file in SQLiteOpenHelper's onCreate(), it's too late. So the copy file code can not copy the complete file. So i need to use adb or ddms to pull the database first? So, Anyone can teach me how to use my own databse?
