Hi everybody, I'm back and I bring problems. :D
I've done a fair bit of research - I know Android can't run JRE 1.7, and I know JRE 1.7 is needed to get Java to read SQL.
I've got this project that says I need to make a way for an Android app to read from a given SQL database.
After days of researching, all I've managed to do is build methods that connect to said database, read the data, save the data in an arraylist, search said arraylist and close the connection.
As far as I understand it, the java web application needs to be running on a server at all times, all while listening to requests for data from an Android app.
LIST OF COMPLETED THINGS:
- method to connect
- method to read needed data
- method to save needed data (for offline reading)
- method to search data
- method to disconnect
LIST OF UNCOMPLETED THINGS:
- putting all completed methods on a server
- getting them to do stuff when requested
- the android client app
I've tried countless tutorials - no luck!
Could the gurus of Daniweb give me a hint? :)
