 Hi, I am new to the Android Development process and I have on
question. Is there a way to access a non local sqlLite server or do
the db's have to be kept on the phone itself? If so what would be the
best way to pull data from an external db? Write a server side app
that pulls the data from the db and creates an XML file and saves it
to the server then read the XML file from the android app?

Thanks in advance for your pointers and suggestions!

You db has to be on the phone. You can of course access an online DB
server from your phone, but in such a case, you would have to write a
server side app as you have mentioned.

This depends. If your app uses data that changes dynamically, you will
have to use the server side app, else, you can use the local db that
you create on the phone

Thanks and Regards,
