Image and content is populated from Sqlite in Android

In this below application we had populated the listview's data and image from the sqlite



Here we are using a java class for creating the table


PlaceDataSQL.java
package com.data.pack;

package com.data.pack;

import android.content.Context;
import android.database.SQLException;
import android.database.sqlite.SQLiteDatabase;
import android.database.sqlite.SQLiteException;
import android.database.sqlite.SQLiteOpenHelper;
import android.util.Log;

/** Helper to the database, manages versions and creation */
public class PlaceDataSQL extends SQLiteOpenHelper {
private static final String DATABASE_NAME = "sample.db";
private static final int DATABASE_VERSION = 1;

private Context context;

public PlaceDataSQL(Context context) {
super(context, DATABASE_NAME, null, DATABASE_VERSION);
this.context = context;
}

@Override
public void onCreate(SQLiteDatabase db) {
db.execSQL("CREATE TABLE gallery (id varchar(20), image BLOB,caption varchar(160),description varchar(200))");
}

private void versionUpdation(SQLiteDatabase db) {

}

/**
* Check if the database already exist to avoid re-copying the file each
* time you open the application.
*
* @return true if it exists, false if it doesn't
*/
public boolean checkDataBase(String db) {

SQLiteDatabase checkDB = null;

try {
String myPath = "data/data/com.data.pack/databases/" + db;
checkDB = SQLiteDatabase.openDatabase(myPath, null,
SQLiteDatabase.OPEN_READONLY);

} catch (SQLiteException e) {

// database does't exist yet.

} catch (Exception e) {

}

if (checkDB != null) {

checkDB.close();

}

return checkDB != null ? true : false;
}

@Override
public void onUpgrade(SQLiteDatabase db, int oldVersion, int newVersion) {
if (oldVersion >= newVersion)
return;

if (oldVersion == 1) {
Log.d("New Version", "Datas can be upgraded");
}

Log.d("Sample Data", "onUpgrade : " + newVersion);
}

}



Here in the onCreate function the table is created, here for image we are using blog, so that we can insert the image inside the table itself and the onUpgrade function is used to upgrade the table on the next release, for example you had create an application and published it in market and a guy is using your application, now suddenly you like to add another field on your table means you need to change the " DATABASE_VERSION " to 2 and in the onUpgrade funtion you need to write the alter query there. Likewise i had using a funtion checkDataBase(), this is to check whether the database is exist or not.

Then in the main activity we are calling delete to delete the table content, likewise we will be using a function insertData, inside this function we will be inserting data to the table, like that we will be using getDataAndPopulate(), here we will be retrieving data from the table and displaying in the list.

The main thing is we inserting the image to database for this we are using HttpClient and on the retriving time it is very easy to assign the data, so while calling on the next time we can assign and there is no need of url call for showing image.

SQLiteDatabase db = (placeData).getReadableDatabase();
Cursor cursor = db.query(table, null, null, null, null, null, null);

startManagingCursor(cursor);
return cursor;

}


In this example i had wrote two types of retrieving methods from the table, by writing the query and specifying the table name itself.
