Re: App runs slowly with JSON

Thanks maadani for your help!
I've tryed what you said me, and now my code looks like this:

int l=json.getLenght();
JSONObject jObj=new JSONObject();
st = db.createStatement("INSERT INTO Dendak(ID,Izena,Helbidea,Telefonoa,Emaila,Mota,Produktuak,Ordutegia,Horario,Latitud,Longitud,Argazkia,Web,Txartela,Berezitasunak,Especialidades) VALUES (?,?, ?, ?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)");
       for (int i=0; i<l;i++)
        st.bind(1, jObj.getInt("id"));
        st.bind(2, jObj.getString("izena"));
        st.bind(3, jObj.getString("helbidea"));
        st.bind(6, jObj.getInt("mota"));
        st.bind(7, jObj.getString("produktuak"));
        st.bind(9, jObj.getString("horario"));
        st.bind(11, jObj.getInt("longitud"));
        st.bind(12, jObj.getString("argazkia"));
        st.bind(13, jObj.getString("web"));
        st.bind(14, jObj.getInt("txartela"));
        st.bind(15, jObj.getString("berezitasuna"));
        st.bind(16, jObj.getString("especialidad"));


Json is an JsonArray that I get from my web service, and has more or less 200 objects.

I run this code, and I need more or less 3 minutes for entering all to my database.


Any idea of how to do it faster?

I've done something nearly same for Android and runs much faster....

Re: App runs slowly with JSON

I think like any database, you can gain performance by optimising your commits. Have you tried wrapping in a transaction then experimenting with the optimum batch size for commits.


I not also you are writing to an SD card, is there an issue with the card?

Re: SQLite slow insert

Like this:


int count = 0;

final int batchSize = 20; // number records to process before commiting the transaction

boolean dirty = false;


while (have more record) {



    // execute your insert statement 


  st.execute ...


    // see if we have processed the same number of records in our batch size  

    if (count % batchSize ==0){    


         dirty = false;

    } else

        dirty = true;



if (dirty)  // commit any records that are in the final incomplete batch




I would also suggest you compare how it performs if you write to anywhere other then the SD card, just to take that factor our of the equation.
