Attach an SQLite database to another

[ Edited ]



I'm trying to attach one SQLite database to another using SQLite ATTACH DATABASE command.



Database d1, d2;

URI dbURI1 = URI.create("file:///SDCard/Databases/SQLiteExample/MyTestDatabase1.db");

Statement st;
if (DatabaseFactory.exists(dbURI1)) {
	d1 = DatabaseFactory.open(dbURI1);
} else {
	d1 = DatabaseFactory.create(dbURI1); 
	st = d1.createStatement("CREATE TABLE 'People' ( 'Name' TEXT, 'Age' INTEGER )");


URI dbURI2 = URI.create("file:///SDCard/Databases/SQLiteExample/MyTestDatabase2.db");

if (DatabaseFactory.exists(dbURI2)) {
	d2 = DatabaseFactory.open(dbURI2);
} else {
	d2 = DatabaseFactory.create(dbURI2);
	st = d2.createStatement("CREATE TABLE 'People2' ('Name2' TEXT, 'Age2' INTEGER )");

st = d1.createStatement("ATTACH DATABASE '/SDCard/Databases/SQLiteExample/MyTestDatabase2.db' as SECOND_TABLE");
st.prepare(); //THROWS AN EXCEPTION "SQL logic error or missing database"




I'm getting a Exception "ATTACH DATABASE /SDCard/Databases/SQLiteExample/MyTestDatabase2.db' as SECOND_TABLE: SQLlogic error or missing database"

when it tries to prepare statement for "Attach Database" command.


Is it possible to use the ATTACH DATABASE command with BlackBerry SQLite API?

Re: Attach an SQLite database to another

The ATTACH DATABASE command is not supported by the implementation of SQLite on BlackBerry Smartphones.
