advise please for db on android

Post by inageib » Wed 07 Mar 2018 04:27

Hi,

I know I can use SQLit on my firemonkey to create an android app but I want to ask is there any other database I can use to connect to this database on the cloud from android ? I did some research and found databases like mongo I can not use on android so is there any other options ? SQL or NoSQL

thanks

UniDAC does not support MongoDB for Android, because currently there are no client libraries for this platform.

You can find a complete list of the types of databases, DBMSs and platforms supported by UniDAC at the compatibility page: https://www.devart.com/unidac/compatibility.html

UniDAC Cloud Providers support Windows 32-bit and 64-bit.

UniDAC allows to connect to MySQL server from Android. To test this functionality, you can use our Mobile demo project. The project is located in the 'Demos\Mobile' folder relatively to the UniDAC demos installation path.
Note, Mobile Development is available only in Professional and Trial Editions, you can find information about this here: http://www.devart.com/unidac/editions.html

I found that the demo create a table called "fish" then it display error:
#42S02Table 'mydb.fish' doesn't exist.
while I has a table called "FISH" so what I should do ? I also executed the SQL for the demo tables

prior to this error I was getting an error that file fish.vtd does not exists then when I copied the file I got the above error. What this vtd file do or has ?
