What is the easiest way to read an xml file? How is the best way to store the information from the xml?

I have tried to find a good tutorial, but I just can't get it to work..

I have an xml file in /res/xml called myxml.xml which looks like this:

Android :: Simple Client Application To Store Clients Information

Oct 12, 2010

I just purchased a Samsung Intercept through Virgin Mobile and am hoping I can find a simple application to store my clients information using it.

I am a Hair Colorist and I have been using a Sony Clie in the past to keep my client info up-to-date, but it finally died. I am hoping my new phone can keep track for me now.

Here is what I need the app to do.

1) Clients Name (so I can easily search for client)
2) Phone Number (so I can call them)
3) Address (not mandatory, but would probably be good)
4) Client's Hair Color Formula (text area where I can write down their color formula)
5) Date of last appointment (and maybe their upcoming appointment)

Does anyone know if there is something out there like this already? It seems like it should be a basic app, but I am BRAND NEW at this, so I have no idea .

Android :: Is It Efficient To Use Text File Or XML File To Store Static Data

Jul 31, 2009

I have some reference data in a text file (~5MB) that I want to use with might android application.The file is of the format:
1|a|This is line 1a
1|b|This is line 1b
2|a|This is line 2a
2|b|This is line 2b
2|c|This is line 2c

What I want to know is the most efficient way (less memory, fast, size etc.) to use this file within my application.

a.) Should I save the file as a raw resource and open and read the whole file whenever I need a certain line.
b.) Should I convert the file to XML and use XPath to query the file when ever I need to look up a value
<!--sample XML -->
<data>
<line number="1">
<entry name="a">This is line 1 a</entry>
</line>
</data>
c.) Should I just copy & paste the whole file as a static string array in the application and use that.
[EDIT] I will also need to search this file and jump to arbitrary keywords e.g. "line 1a".

Android : Can SAX Use A Local Resource XML File?

Jul 26, 2010

All of the android examples for XmlPullParser pull from a local resource file, and all of the SAX examples pull the XML from a URL. I've been told SAX is faster, so I'm trying to use that to pull data from a local resource file (res/xml/thefile.xml)

The example code I'm working off of is here. So in that example, the code I want to change is:

URL url = new URL("http://example.com/example.xml");
...
xr.parse(new InputSource(url.openStream()));

Instead of using URL, I want to use getXml(R.xml.thefile)
Is that possible, or does SAX need to get data from a URL?

Android :: Open A Local App File In Another App Via An Intent

Nov 8, 2010

I don't want to store said file on the sdcard in this case. The file also cannot be storage directly in the apps local files directory. It needs to be in a subdirectory, so it cannot write the file using openFileOutput() and MODE_WORLD_READABLE.

The app may download files small files like pdfs and store them locally in a subdirectory. I would like to be able to have the user open these files if they have an app that can open them.

For example here is an intent for sending a pdf:

CODE:..............

path being something like: /data/data/packagename/files/subdir/example.pdf

That intent will open a pdf viewer, but the viewer is unable to open the file. I assume this is a permissions issue. I tried Mark Murphy's suggestion here: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/thread/4e55d869213483a9/b7270078ac1a2744?lnk=raot of using Runtime.getRuntime().exec("chmod 755 " + fileName); but it didn't make any difference. He also suggested a Content Provider but I would like to avoid it if I can because it seems like a lot just to get this file over to another app.

If the content provider is the only option, do I have to save the file to the content provider or can I just use the content provider as a pass through to get it to the other app when I need to?

Android :: Getting Google Maps To Accept Local KML File?

Mar 5, 2010

I am trying to get googlemaps to accept a local KML file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=file://" + Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/locate.kml"));
startActivity(myIntent);

The file is on the SD card, and is a valid KML file. Google Maps loads up, but says it cannot find the file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=http://www.website.com/locate.kml"));
startActivity(myIntent);

Works fine. geo: 0,0? q= seems to be very under documented, how to use it to refer to a local file?
