The idea is to allow developers to access a remote database provided by google.In android the developer will need a special permission to be set at the manifest file.This could allow applications to keep a backup of users application data without having to sign in ever, seamless.Users could than sign-in to their gmail and see a list of applications that are currently storing data on their gmail space.The user could be allowed to wipe the data or even block the application from storing data to it.This idea make the most sense since Android will be a platform were users will be constantly changing android phones as new better ones come out.
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.
I frequently encounter this message when I try to update a table (to enter a proxy) in the database using adb shell. $ adb shell #sqlite3 / data/ data/ com. android.providers. settings/databases/ settings.db sqlite> SELECT * FROM secure; SQL error: not an error sqlite>
How can I make a simple connection with remote db in android app? Basically, I want to save users names, emails etc. in a remote database and retrieve them later on demand. When answering - could you provide me some sample code so I can figure it out myself please?
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?
I'm try to sent/receive data from my remote db server (MySQL) , I know I can't connect the MySQL directly on android . And I'm trying to use the soap , but I'm not sure if this is the right way?I don't have any experience on it , so my question is:" what is the way to sent/receive data from remote db server " in general ? Does it have any examples I can see ?
We have an android app that currently sends data to a php script which writes to a mysql DB on the same server. We are thinking of using a scalable remote DB e.g. amazon RDS.The question is how does our android app write to these remote DBs? Do they have some kind of rest API, or do we have to send the data to the same php script on our server but use that to post to the remote mysql DB?
I am making an android app, and i need to connect to a remote database with a webservice. as i know, i will recibe a XML from the webservice, with the result's of my SELECT query (various rows in some cases) i have no idea about XML, and also i have no idea about web services, i only know that i will recibe a XML and i have to parse it to obtain the data. there is a XML parser for this purpose? easy to add to my app and easy to configure?
So here's a question for you guys. I'm new to android and I'm looking for an app or combination of apps that will allow me to do a few things on my home PC. I'd like to be able to do the following from anywhere, not just my home network: -Access my desktop via remote desktop -View (and possibly edit) documents/pdfs on my PC -Stream music from my PC. I've been doing some research and it seems there are a few options for what I'm trying to accomplish, so I'm hoping you folks can point me in the right direction.
I defined a remote service over a AIDL file. Now i want to access this service in a different application. But how can I do that? The AIDL file is not accessible in my second application, and if i just copy the AIDL file, then the service can't be found.
What i did is i am creating a sqllitedatabase in class A.I am creating a table and inserting the some values.Now what i need is i have to insert some more values from class B to the same database.how can i done this.
I would like to ask you smart people if anyone has seen any documentation regarding web access to a database from within an Android application. I would like to create a (FREE) application where the users can share information (rants/complains) around the globe. Each user will be able to see a little globe in his phone with locations of other users and some specific information about them.
Architecturally, I am thinking "database in my GoDaddy host, exposing a web service", and the web service accessed from the Android application. But I see no documentation about accessing web services. I can also go XML, maybe, but I am not seeing what mechanisms exist in the Android for over-the-web XML access.
I have a feeling I am mis-understanding something big in the picture. Can someone point me to docs, or knows something about this topic? (the iPhone has a Lighter app where you can see people lighting around the globe. Mine is similar, but people would not be lighting, instead they will be "complaining/ranting").
I understand that to access a SQL database from Android I need to create a web service that will run on the SQL server and will process requests from the Android application, what I need to know is how to create this web service and how to access it from Android.
When I first ran across PhoneGap, I was excited because I envisioned simply dropping in the URL of a mobile site and simply updating the mobile site to use the devices capabilities when available.
Alas, it seems it is not that easy.
From what I understand (and I could be incorrect), any HTML/JS access to the device's hardware is limited to local 'pages'. So essentially create a HTML/JS local 'web' app to access the 'real' mobile web app by AJAX like calls. It seems a little redundant (at least to me) when the point is to simply extend the interface an existing mobile site.
Not trying to knock PhoneGap here, just wondering if there's a similar framework that allows a remote site to access the phone's hardware directly. Or if I've missed how that can be done with PhoneGap.
(Sure, I know "allows a remote site to access the phone's hardware directly" sounds scary - but the URL is hard-coded in the app, and HTTPS could provide authenticity. Of course, security is probably why this isn't supported by PhoneGap.)
Can someone please help me understand the advantage of using Touchdown to manage my corporate emails, calendar and contacts? We are running on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 (on Small Business Server 2008). The phones that are using activesync in our office have to enter a password every time they are brought out of screen saver or sleep mode.This is very annoying and I don't want this. I am currently connecting via my company's Outlook remote web access, not directly to the server. No password entry required. So far, this is working for me. Updates to emails, contacts and calendar are immediate. Emails arrive on the phone typically before they appear in my Outlook.Now, what I am looking for in the way of improvements:
1.Adding a signature to my emails (required for FINRA and SEC compliance). 2. Fixing contacts so they are listed by last name. They are currently in first name order when viewed on the DROID (not in Outlook). 3.Ability to accept meeting invites this is a minor issue.
I am creating an android app that is basically a listing of information on Mushrooms. I get this information from an sqlite database. I have a global singleton with a services class inside it in which I use to access my db. Almost every activity accesses the db. Is it better to leave my db open all the time or open and close it as I need the data? If the best practice is to leave it open all the time, where do I need to make sure to close it and what is the worst case scenario if I left it open when the activity was destroyed?
I have a Windows web server already set up with a website (unlimited application pools) and I want to be able to access a database on that server via the Android app I'm developing. How can I do this? Can someone point me to a tutorial or give code example of how this cross-platform (Android/Java to ASP.NET/C#) communication can be done? (I'm trying to create a leader board or global scoreboard for my Android game on my server.)
I have four tabs (reports, review reports, map and settings). I have an sqlite database populated with report information. I wish to have the database accessible throughout the application. The reports tab successfully adds data to the database however using the same methodology crashes the application. The Android debugger points to the line where the database is called again.
In the reports tab the following code is used to launch the database...
In the onCreate() method of the Review Tab - Where I wish to review reports - I try to access to the database through the call calling the return report method
this.reportDatabase = new ReportDatabase(this);
However this fails to work. In the android debugger highlights that the problem belongs with the context being provided to it. I realise that the report database has already been accessed by the report tab and wonder if this is causing the issue. I am new to programming android, the application is designed to report on flamingos in Africa, any help would be greatly appreciated!
Following the suggestion of Seva Alekseyev I have adapted as follows...
I have adapted my ReportDatabase as...
reportDatabase = ReportDatabase.open(this);
As the call in both the report and review tab. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work, the debugger stops on the same method. The full ReportDatabase.java file is here...
This method returns a double array and probably shouldn't be this hacky...
