Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-363) SQLite database does not grow on Android
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 08:29:43 GMT
SQLite database does not grow on Android

                 Key: CB-363
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Android
    Affects Versions: 1.4.0, 1.3.0, 1.5.0
         Environment: Android Simulator, 
Android 2.2+
PhoneGap (any version)
            Reporter: Urs Zimmermann
            Assignee: Joe Bowser
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 1.6.0


If I create a database with the PhoneGap API (1.3.0 or higher) I can set an initial size.
If I insert data, the size of the database file should grow if there is not enough space for
all the inserted data. This is not working properly on Android, and I will get the following

error.code: 4
error.message: there was not enough remaining storage space, or the storage quota was reached
and the user declined to allow more space

When I close the app (kill the process) and reopen it, the database file is grown by ~1MB
and I can insert data up to that size.

I tried inserting all of the data in one single transaction, or with every single insert being
one transaction, the result is the same. Changing the database size after creation has no

<b>Steps to Reproduce</b>
Create a Database with the phonegap API using

var db = window.openDatabase("test", "1.0", "Test DB", 200000); 

200000 being the size of the database, as used in the (former) API examples. 

<b>Expected Results</b>
The database is created and I can read from and write to.
The size of the database file should grow, so all the data can get inserted.

<b>Actual Results</b>
The database is created and I can read from and write to.
When I insert data, the initial size seems to be the upper limit for the size of the db (filesize
of the .db file)
When this size is reached and I try to insert data, phonegap aborts with the error described

This only happens on Android, device or simulator
For iOS the database seems to grow "on the fly"
