Android :: Use Flat File Or Database For Storing Quotes In Application?

Oct 14, 2009

I am developing an app on Android that will randomly pick and display an inspirational quotation (or verse) from a large collection of quotations. On Android I can choose between a flat file and an SQLite database. The app should satisfy the following conditions:
Be scalable to 10^6 quotations and/or verses
Be very fast (i.e. retrieve and display a quotation, immediately at the touch of a button)
Be able to load new quotations from an external source (in a format I have not yet decided)
What data format must I use?

Android : Way To Load Flat Files Into Droid Database Table

Jan 21, 2010

In Android when you upgrade a database all data is lost. I'm going through a phase of development right now that is forcing many database upgrades. I don't want to lose all my data (and have to manually re-enter it) each time I upgrade my database. I would like to store my data in flat files and load those flat files into their respective tables each time a database upgrade occurs.

My questions is: What is the best way to go about this on the Android platform? Where should I store the data files (res/raw???) What sql should I execute to load these files?

Android :: Unable To Manage To Put A String With Double Quotes In A Resources File

Oct 31, 2009

I'm probably missing something obvious, but for some reason I don't manage to put a string with double quotes in a resources file.

strings.xml: <resources> <string name="message_empty_folder">Folder "%s" is empty.</string> </resources>

LIstFolderActivity.java: String format = getResources().getString (R.string.message_empty_folder); System.out.println(format);

Log output: Folder %s is empty.

What's eating up the double quotes?

Android :: Storing Object Into SQLlite Database

Nov 16, 2010

I would like to store an object into a SQLlite database. I am looking for how to best do it in order to ensure that if I need to updata/change this object in the future that users of the new and old object layout will be minimally impacted. In other words I want to ensure that making changes to the object will have minimum affect on clients that do not update their software on the old database format.

I want to also ensure an easy update from the old record style to the new format. I was thinking that I could add an element in the SQL row to identify the object type with a unique name, and to identify the object version number. That way I could read the row and use the object number to control the deserializer to use the correct version of the class.

Android : Regarding Storing Of Data From User In Database

Aug 19, 2010

I am working on some sample programs, where i have to take the value from the user and store it in the database. I have used DroidDraw to create the XML code for UI.For now, I have just started with a textbox. So, I have to take the value from this textbox and store it in a database. I am using SQlite browser to create tables. I read in some forums, that one way of doing this.

1. Copy the db file in the asset folder of the android project and use the AssetManager class. But i am not able to figure out how to use the asset manager class here. Or if I could get some simpler suggestions on how to store the value from user into the database, it would be great.

Android :: Storing Float Numbers As Strings In Database

Apr 27, 2010

So I have an app where I put arbitrary strings in a database and later extract them like this:

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

This works fine in all cases except for when the string looks like a float number, for example "221.123123123". After saving it to the database I can extract the database to my computer and look inside it with a DB-viewer, and the saved number is correct. However, when using cursor.getString() the string "221.123" is returned. I cant for the life of me understand how I can prevent this. I guess I could do a cursor.getDouble() on every single string to see if this gives a better result, but that feels sooo ugly and inefficient.

I just made a small test program. This program prints "result: 123.123", when I would like it to print "result: 123.123123123"

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

Android :: Best Cloud Based File Storing And Organizing Tool?

Oct 7, 2010

This is off topic (off Android really), but does anyone know where to find good advice on moving to a "paperless office" using cloud software.I want to keep all my stuff online using a scanner and cloud based software. I'm posting here because many on this forum are software junkies and would at least know a few forums to direct me to.Actually, to bring it back to Android, I will be using my smart-phone to access the cloud to see my docs, which is a big reason I want to move to the "cloud."Here is my main question: What is the best cloud-based tool to store electronic documents? Google Docs, Evernote, or DropBox?

Android :: Populate Database From CSV File?

May 22, 2010

Is it possible to take a csv file stored in the res/raw resource directory and use it to populate a table in the sqlite3 database? My thought was that, if there was a way to do a bulk import for the entire file into the table then that would be cleaner and faster than iterating over each line in the file and executing individual insert statements...

but I'm having trouble applying those statements in my Android application. My first thought was to try something like the following...but no luck:

db.execSQL("CREATE TABLE " + TABLE_NAME + "(id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, name TEXT)");
db.execSQL(".mode csv");
db.execSQL(".import res/raw/MyFile.csv " + TABLE_NAME);...............
