Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-103) Support opening a database that connects to an existing file
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 16:34:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-103?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13162867#comment-13162867

Simon MacDonald commented on CB-103:
------------------------------------

I've seen people package their database in their application then on the first run of the
app they move the database file to the proper platform dependent location.

I think the best way to handle this type of situation is to create a plugin for each platform
that does the work and shares the same .js interface. It really doesn't belong in core PhoneGap
and Web SQL is going away in favour of IndexedDB in the future.

> Under Adobe AIR, you can open a connection to a SQLite db and point to an existing file.
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, http://dev.w3.org/html5/webdatabase, but
it could certainly be useful.
