TXT2LRN - sqlite examples

The author should add some examples of using a sqlite database with Nokia ASHA.

<sorry> didn't realize that this was porting only for S60 5th edition. Where is the page for porting Android applications to Nokia Asha?

Hamishwillee - Why?

Hi TXT2LRN

This article is very clearly about Symbian (S60 5th Edition) so why would the article talk about Nokia Asha, particularly as it was written in 2009, way before Nokia Asha existed, and when Series 40 wasn't treated as such an important platform?

I think it would be useful to have an article on porting Android to Nokia Asha that included this information. However I suspect it would say the same as this does in #Data Storage - use RMS. There are SQllite ports to Java ME but they are huge: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/788397/is-there-any-option-for-local-database-like-sqlite-for-j2me-cldc-devices

Hamishwillee - There isn't one

There isn't one. Hey, perhaps an opportunity for you to write one!

Best available is Series 40 UI design port from Android webinar - companion article which only covers UI design.
