a few days ago I published in the App Inventor Community a small study on the location of the TinyDB “inside” the application when it is installed, for this I used my extension com.KIO4_Terminal.aix
Now I’m going to do the same study in Kodular …
0.- To do this study the application must be INSTALLED .
1.- We create three TinyDB:
TinyDB1 … Namespace: TinyDB1
TinyDB2 … Namespace: TinyDB1
TinyDB3 … Namespace: Tiny_Three
- TinyDB1 and TinyDB2 are the same database, the same file, because they have the same Namespace: TinyDB1. Both will be the TinyDB1.xml file
TinyDB3 is a different database, a different file, because it has a different Namespace: Tiny_Three. The will be the Tiny_Three.xml file
2.- In our app, in addition to the TinyDB, we will upload the file my_file.txt to the assets.
3.- Using the “AssetsToCacheDir” block, we will copy the file into the Cache directory of the same app and obtain its address:
We also get:
4.- When we place TinyDBs, the shared_prefs directory is created with the .xml files corresponding to the TinyDBs
5.- The name of those files is the Namespace , in our case TinyDB1.xml and Tiny_Three.xml
