Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-103) Support opening a database that connects to an existing file
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 21:24:40 GMT


Raymond Camden commented on CB-103:

Filip, I don't think anyone is saying you couldn't do it via JS simply enough. I was more
worried about the case where you may have a large db you want to use with the application.
As an example, I shipped a db with 1k words in it for my Hangman game built in AIR. That db
was only 37k, so easy enough to ship with the package, but a thousand inserts on app startup
(even once) would probably be pretty darn slow.

The benefit of this is that your application can ship a database seeded with data. Without
this support, your application has to initialize the db via scripting. While not difficult,
it does increase the application's first run time and also complicates the code unnecessarily.
I understand that this isn't per the Web SQL spec,, but
it could certainly be useful.
