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 :: Possible To Write Custom Content Provider For Existing System Database?

Dec 9, 2009

Not sure of the absolute utility of this but seems as though it should be possible and useful. Can you extend ContentProvider to provide URIs representing new queries (i.e., joins across multiple tables not specified by existing URIs) for an existing system database? The alternative seems to be that I need to write a series of cursor queries then join them -- seems like a lot of unnecessary code duplication.

I have been trying this for the contacts database as an exercise, but no love so far. The crux seems to be that I cannot open a database in another package during the setup phase. Am I just completely out in left field here? It's possible as I am new to both Java and Android.

Android :: Internet Data Request Done Via Content Provider?

May 13, 2010

How could I create a ContentProvider where the data is fetch from the internet. As the data is parsed maybe allow the requesting client know the download progress and results so that they are displayed as it's downloaded. My idea is to share this data across other apps. I'm not sure if a ContentProvider would be the solution?

Android :: How To Return Non-table-oriented Data From A Content Provider

Mar 27, 2009

I'm writing a content provider that returns data about game sessions. This data comes from an SQLite table. However, the client that consumes it will also want summary data: total wins, current/best winning streak, and so on. I'm not sure which approach to use.

* Possible Approach 1: Do nothing, let the client calculate what it needs.

The client could step through the whole table and calculate statistics itself. However, it's inefficient to send the entire database over the content provider link if the client only wants the summaries; this may also be prone to bugs because each client has to reimplement the summary calculations.

* Possible Approach 2: Separate content URIs for summary data.

The client could ask for a URI like content://myapp/summary/totalwins and get back a text/plain stream containing the number of wins. This seems like a big hassle to implement on both ends, though. Or it could ask for a URI like content://myapp/summary and get back an XML stream containing all the summary data, but this isn't much simpler.

* Possible Approach 3: A phony table.

The client could ask for a URI like content://myapp/summary and get back a cursor over a single row, with each summary value having its own column. This would not be an SQLite cursor but a custom in-memory cursor. It seems a little unnatural to use a table metaphor when there's always exactly one row, though.

* Possible Approach 4: The extras bundle.

Cursor has a getExtras() method that returns a bundle. The client could make a request for the main URI, content://myapp/sessions, and then just look at the extras bundle instead of reading any rows. However, there's no setExtras() method, so I'm stuck with whatever bundle object SQLite puts in there - and if it's Bundle.EMPTY, I'm out of luck.

Android :: Content Provider That Return Data Listing Installed Applications

Jul 19, 2010

Is there a standard native Android content provider that will return data listing all of the apps currently installed on the cellphone. Something like open()/readdir() on a Linux bin directory.

Given that you know an app is installed on an Android cellphone, and you know that apps name, how do you launch that app from a completely different and unrelated app. You might not know which Intents/Broadcasts/URIs the app you want to launch is listening for. And not all Android apps are written to respond to Intent/URI broadcasts or requests.

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).

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.

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.
