Android :: Apply Access Restriction On Content Provider

Sep 14, 2010

I found that if I want to use the searchable options using the search key I have to create a content provider. Content provider is used to share data across applications.

But I do not want to allow access to my content provider (as well as my data) except/outside my own application. I want to use it only for search suggestion. Because my app data is kind of restricted.

Is there any way to implement local search without content provider? OR is is possible to apply restriction so that except my own app no other app can use my content provider?

Android : Content Provider - No Link Between Content Provider And Its CONTENT_URI Declared In Another Class

Mar 1, 2010

I am having a hard time understanding content providers. In the notepad example and others, the content provider never even declares its CONTENT_URI anywhere inside itself, yet the docs say to publicly declare this. It's declared in a different class. So when an activity queries a content provider with a CONTENT_URI, how does Android know which one I want. I see no link between a content provider and its CONTENT_URI declared in another class.

I also don't how to think about intents and content providers. I know that you don't call an intent on a content provider. But an activity queries a content provider without an intent, and an activity has a mimetype attribute in the manifest that would seem to tie it to a content provider.

Android : Content Provider Vs Direct Database Access - Transaction Management

Aug 7, 2010

I understand, at least on paper, the basic difference between the Content Provider and just directly accessing the SQLiteDatabase. I have a functioning prototype for my application, and currently it is just directly hitting the database. I don't really have any experience using the Content Provider pattern, but I have found out that I will need to share some data with another application.

I will only be sharing about 2 out of a dozen or so tables, so I was wondering if I should be just completely redoing the data layer to follow the Content Provider pattern, or just expose only those tables via a Content Provider for the sake of the other application and still directly access the database in the primary application.

One of the issues I ran into with my prototype was that I have some fairly complex transactions, and the code I wrote to get that working is not designed particularly well and isn't reusable at all. As I add more functionality to this app, I'm going to need a better designed data access layer, before I set off writing my own, does anyone know of any good resources with design patterns for this type of thing already? Also, if I need to go the Content Provider route, am I going to have solid control over the database transactions?

Android :: Content Provider Without SQL

Jun 4, 2010

my android application is handling a large database of bus passage time and we would like to allow others application to be able to display certains bus passage time. We would like to use a content provider to do that. Most example seems to be about using an SQL database, but we use some custom text file. I was wondering what would be the best way to do that. I was thinking I could use a Content Provider and implement the Cursor interface on a custom object that I would manually fill with my text data. Would this be possible ? Anyone have a better idea (excluding changing to SQL lite of course)?

Android :: Caching Content Provider

Feb 2, 2009

I am performing hundreds of calls to a single content provider to perform various insertions, updates and deletions. After profiling my application, I have noticed that the ContentResolver class takes approx. 30ms to retrieve the corresponding content provider object for each call. Is there anyway to retrieve a reference to the content provider rather then going through the ContentResolver every time?

Android :: Stopping Content Provider

Oct 21, 2009

The Content Provider starts when the first applicable URI is resolved. This will make the ContentProvider run forever and there doesn't seem to be a way to stop it (such as due to inactivity etc).It would be nice if Content Provider would stop after some time so that the memory usage is reduced (An enclosing process, doesn't need to be alive if the Content Provider is not needed anymore).

Jan 21, 2010

I was wondering if anyone has any information on accessing the Gmail content provider. It doesn't seem to be officially supported in the API but it looks like people are able to do this regardless. See the SlideScreen app which notifies you of new e-mail and even shows you info (sender, title).It would be great to know how this is accomplished, for example we could create a home screen widget that shows you your last few e- mails, etc.

The method is below:

Android : Query The Last Sent SMS From Content Provider

Jul 22, 2010

When I send an SMS on my Android emulator, it goes to the content provider:

content://sms/sent

right?

So I wanted to get the last sent SMS from the content provider. So I used this Uri as you can see above, and, I used the method query, with the Content Resolver Object. And I got the cursor, and used the movetofirst() method, so I would have the last sent SMS. Check the code below. I hope it helps.

package com.sys;

Android : Private Content Provider

Sep 28, 2010

I am developing an application that involves some sensitive user information. I retrieve this information via a private web API. I am trying to determine the best way to get this data into my app. Right now I'm exploring creating a content provider that can do so; my hesitation is in making it secure. I want this data to be usable only by my application. Ideally, no other apps would even know it exists.

Do you have any pointers or advice on how to do this effectively and securely? Any info on content providers who's data source is a remote OAuth'd API?

I say content provider, but if that isn't the best way to do what I need, by all means let me know what else to look into.

Android : Content Provider Or Database

Nov 22, 2010

Since I've seen a presentation from Google IO I'm a bit confused in the question, if it's better to use content providers or databases. Or it makes no difference if I don't want to share any data with other applications.

If I've understood it right, content providers based on SQLite DBs and it's also possible that content of them is only accessable for my application.

Android :: Content Provider OnCreate OnDestroy

when writing a ContentProvider I have to implement the onCreate()-method, in which I establish my database connection.

Android :: Difference Between Service And Content Provider

Aug 19, 2010

I am developing an app and get confused about the idea of Service and Content Provider in Android. In practice, what will be the difference between them? Content Provider is a facade and it defines a way to share data among applications. You many attach a local database to your app or create Content Provider mapped to a universal database so that all the application on the same device can share it. Service is long running processes that need to be decoupled from main activity. It has local and remote service. local service is like the local database, and remote service is like Content Provider sharing the database info.

What My App is doing? downloads info. from multiple internet resource in the background (I suppose this will be Service) and store the info. into database, and multiple applications will need to retrieve the data, format them and output them to user (I guess it will be a Content Provider). What will be the fine line between Service and Content Provider? Newbie in Android
