Android : Where To Put Local File On Phone?

Jul 1, 2009

I'm trying to read some local files, and ive been reading a lot of stuff about it, but i still don't know where to store the files on my phone and how to get the right path. Some say, it should be stored on /data/data/your.package.here/files but where is that, i mean i can get there when using the emulator but i have no clue how to put files in this on a real device.

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?

Android :: Opening Local HTML File Via Browser Intent

My open source application needs to browse local HTML files on the SD card, and WebView is not enough because I need history and bookmarks. I wrote the following code. It correctly opens the browser, but fails to reach catalog.html and in fact it just opens whatever page was last browsed:

Uri uri = Uri.parse("content://com.android.htmlfileprovider/sdcard/ myapp/catalog.html");
Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setData(uri); intent.setClassName("com.android.browser", "com.android.browser.BrowserActivity"); startActivity(intent);

General :: Playing Local Audio File In Webview App

Feb 3, 2012

When trying to play a local mp3 file included in the APK, nothing happens. However, if I pull an mp3 from the web it works.

e.g.

< a u d i o src="[URL]..." > WORKS

< a u d i o src="01.mp3" > DOES NOT WORK

I tried looking through logs for clues and found this line. I'm not sure if it's relevant or not.

PlayerDriver::isProtectedFile(file:///android_asset/www/01.mp3)

I'm new to Android development, so I can only guess that the file is somehow inaccessible for streaming.

I'd love to get this figured out though. Having to pull the files remotely every time is not a desirable solution.

Some additional info. Either solution works when tested in the browser. The local file problem only arises when I convert it to an app. I'm using PhoneGap build to create the APK.

Android : Content Provider Implementation - Original Data Stored On Network Or Local/remote File Systems

Jun 13, 2010

I'm now trying to implement my own content provider. My original data was stored on network or local/remote file systems, so I want to provide data via input stream. I know that client may call ContentResolver.getnputStream to retrieve the input stream to access data. But I don't know how to implement content provider in this situation, I searched the Internet but all the tutorials for content provider are talks about how to expose data that stored on local database. how to expose data that stored on file systems using a content provider? what happened when client call ContentResolver.getnputStream? I want to know how to return an input stream to my client.

General :: Open Local KML File In Google Maps In Offline Mode

Sep 7, 2013

i just registered here to find out if opening a KML file on my SD card with Google maps in offline mode can work. I am looking for an solution quite a time, but only found this thread on stackover.

Quote:

To load kml into Google Maps on Android without writing an app, you can create a little html file somewhere with a geo-uri link to the kml file and then click on that link in any Android web browser.

For example: suppose your kml file is located in /sdcard/overlay.kml then you write a geo-uri link like this:

Quote:

<html>
<head><title>Example KML link page using a geo-uri</title></head>
<body>
<a href="geo:0,0?q=file:///sdcard/overlay.kml">overlay.kml</a>
</body>
</html>

Clicking on the link will launch Maps and then Maps will attempt to load and your kml.

Be warned however that the Android version of Maps does not appear to handle the same version/range of kml elements as the desktop version (or desktop Google Earth).

a other thread is about editing the manifest file to get maps to open local KML files

Quote:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="h**p://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.example.lyold"

[Code]....

Any way to open local KML files with google maps in offline mode ? I want to open kml ONLY in google maps, i know there are several apps out there that support kml files....
