Droid Always Wanting To Create Database / What's Going On

I'm working on a small android database application (i'm an android newbie). I have an existing sqlite3 database created on a different platform. When i use it my sqliteopenhelper always calls oncreate (which of course fails). When i let android create the database all works just fine - oncreate is called for the first time, but not subsequently.

The android_metadata table is present with local=en_us.

What's going on?

Possible To Create Droid Database Without External Tools

I have been searching for this for the past few days and every tutorial i see needs for me to use an external package.

Cant Seem To Add To Database

So basically my app starts out with a tabview, then through the options menu the user selects to add a game to the database. This opens the inputgame class, which accepts a few values, and then it should put them into a database when the user clicks "submit". It will also go back to the original home view. The app goes back the the home tabs view just fine, bu nothing ever gets added to the database. Am i doing something wrong?



And here is my database helper. The records i have pre-programmed in show up just fine:


Edit: when submitting from inputgames, should i be closing that activity all together? I think the way i have it set now just goes back to the other activity, but nothing really gets done. Or is that not it at all?

Edit #2 well i got it to add. For some reason i have to use .execsql. Thats fine i guess, but bow when i try to add from a spinner item in inputgames, i get this populating the respective element: com. Jvavrik. Gcm. Inputgame@43bb0510

Were the number after the "@" is always different.

Open A Database In Runtime

I'm new to android programming and this is my first post in this group. I've found a lot of problems but i'm slowly getting over them.

Now i'm stuck on this. I want to open a database but in code time i don't know it's name. I know it's structure, but not it's name. So now i list all the databases in the local directory of my app and get which one the user want's to open, but i can't open it since i don't know how to create a sqliteopenhelper without knowing the file name.

Simplecursoradapter Not Updating With Database Changes

I have an android list activity that is backed by a database cursor through a simplecursoradapter.

When the items are clicked, a flag field in the coresponding row in the database is toggled and the view in the list needs to be updated.

The problem is, when the view that's updated goes off screen and is recycled, the old value is displayed on the view when it returns into view. The same thing happens whenever thr list is redrawb (orientation changes, etc).

I use notifydatasetchanged() to refresh the cursor adapter but it seems ineffective.

How should i be updating the database so the cursor is updated as well?

Existing Sql Database

I am trying to make an app that will interface with a website i have. It is a movie website with all of its information stored in sql database. I know how to write the requests and queries in .asp but dont know how to get information from the database in my app. I want the user to be able to enter a movie title, and through a couple of stored procedures that are in my sql database, return the info on that movie(actor, budget, genre. ). I would like to have little info stored on the device, have all of the queries being sent to my sql server and just have the info being returned.

So my question boils down to, how do i link my existing sql database with an android app.

Adapter For 2 Database Sources

I have 2 android databases in my app. For the sake of an example, lets say database #1 is called jobs and has the following columns: "jobs primary key" - "job title" - "job description"

Database #2 is called people and has the following columns: "people primary key" - "first name" - "last name" - "jobs id key"

(Yes i know these are not the greatest of designs from a database perspective, this is just to help paint a picture for my question).

Within a listview, i'd like to display columns "first name" - "last name" - "job title" (1 column from database #1, 2 columns from database #2). Using a simplecursoradapter, is it possible to somehow accomplish this?

If i don't use a simplecursoradapter, the only way that i can think to accomplish this is to use an arrayadapter, where i use a stringbuilder to concatenate the 3 columns together, and fill the listview, but i'm wondering if there is a better way to accomplish this.

Updating Database From An Edittext

I have a text field in sqlite database, which i want the user to be able to update.

So i extract and display the text in an edittext view. The user edits it and presses "update" button. At this point i want to update the text field in database with whatever user has in the edittext.

Here's the problem, edittext returns the type editable.
And the put(string key, string value) function of contentvalues, that i use while updating the record, expects a string. So how to put an editable in a string?

I tried upcasting the editable to charsequence and then casting that to string, but that gives me a runtime exception, classcastexception, which it very well should (because the object was an editable to begin with, i cannot make it a string).

So how to get around this? Here's the code i am using. I know it is wrong, but i cannot figure out how to do this.

Updating Prepopulated Database

I lost last 3 hours trying to do this. Im making an app that will ship with a db filled with populated tables that would not change on clients devices.

I managed to do this by putting it in the assets folder and copying it as a stream of bytes to the appropriate data folder on the phone. Problem is when i wish to update the database, i cant get it to work.

I delete the db in data folder on phone (from code), but copying the new database always fails, or the copied db has the appropriate size but no tables in it.

How to do this? Or is there a simpler way? Can i open db directly from assets (it would be the simplest way if it can, but i cant find how to access the path to assets from code)?

Reading From Database - File

I know a lot of web languages but they're a lot different from java (which is what android uses, i believe). I'm trying to create a small application but can't figure out how to populate a list or select box with data. How do i store the data so when you install the application it will read it from some database/file and display it? Do i need to use sqlite for this? If yes, how do i populate it before exporting the application?

Asynctask And Database Lock

My problem is about asynctask and database lock. I have an asynctask which does a full restore (from an amazon s3 storage) of my database. In order to avoid any inconsistency i use a sqllite transaction. From the ui thread i display a loading message while launching this asynctask and was thinking it was not possible for the user to use the application at the same time but for example if i click on search it goes to the search screen of my application and then i encounter database lock problem.

Do you have any idea how i can handle it ? (i.e. Be sure the user is "locked" to my loading message)

Way To Do Database Schema Migrations In Droid

Is there a standard way to do database schema migrations on android? For example, user installs newer version of my android app but the new version needs to make updates to the database schema (and wiping the user's database and starting over is not an option!). So i need to run some alter statements and/or copy tables the first time my new version runs.

Cursor Stay Valid Across Database Changes

I am looking to create objects that internally store a few cursors. When asked for data, those objects will use the cursors to get the data from the database. This is to hide my database structure from the rest of my app.

My question is, if i get a cursor, and change the database with many insertions/updates/deletes, would the cursor still be pointing to the correct location? (Assuming i did not delete it's data).

Access A Database In A Separate Thread In Droid

How do you access a sqlitedatabase database in a separate thread (ie: an asynctask) of an activity and make sure that you always leave it in a legal state?

If i understand correctly, the thread can be killed at any moment and the database might remain open, potentially giving an illegalstateexception (sqlitedatabase
Created and never closed) at a latter time.

How do you deal with this?
