Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-103) Support opening a database that connects to an existing file
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2012 16:07:17 GMT

Ben Combee commented on CB-103:
-------------------------------

This has been a common request on webOS for a while, but we've not implemented it yet.  The
use case includes apps like Bible readers or TV listings, ones where not only do they want
to ship a lot of data in the app package, but they also want to be able to download a new
bundle of data as a single compressed file that can be immediately integrated.

> 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.
