B4A Library MySQL Library with jdbc

Hello everyone,

This is my second library very similiar to MSSQL.


There are only three functions.

1) setDatabase("Server IPNUMBER (not name)","databasename","username","password")
2) Query("select * from tablename") --> return rows as a LIST
3) TableList --> return table names rows as a LIST.

You can also write create, update or delete queries.
You must copy MYSQL.jar, MYSQL.xml files to your addititonal library folder.

You should download jdbc driver from Mysql site:
Download jdbc driver

After you must copy mysql-connector-java-5.1.22-bin.jar file to your additional library folder.

You must add Manifest
AddPermission("android.permission.INTERNET")
AddPermission("android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_S TATE")​

Maybe you need to allow access to MySQL;

mysql> grant all privileges on *.* to root@'%' with grant option;
you can change username root to another one.


Using

B4X:
'Activity module
Sub Process_Globals
   'These global variables will be declared once when the application starts.
   'These variables can be accessed from all modules.

End Sub

Sub Globals
   'These global variables will be redeclared each time the activity is created.
   'These variables can only be accessed from this module.
   Dim a As MYSQL
   Dim L As List
   Dim hsv As HorizontalScrollView   
   Dim svRows As ScrollView
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)

   'write your own parameters
   'a.setDatabase("server ipnumber (not name)","databasename","username","password")  'Cancel this line
   'you can write named server
   a.setDatabase("server ipnumber or url","databasename","username","password")

   ' select query
   '    L=a.Query("select * from tb_Test")
   ' or get table list for database
      L = a.TableList  'you can get all tables for default database

   ' CUD: Create, Update, Delete
   ' or UPDATE query
   '   Dim r as Int        ' return affected rows count
   '   r = a.ExecuteNonQuery("update tablename set fieldname='xxxx' where keyname='xx'; ")    
   
   If L.IsInitialized=False Then
      Msgbox("Records Not Found","Warning")
      Return
   End If
   
   Dim row As List,cols As Int   ,rows As Int
   rows = L.Size   
   row = L.Get(0)  'Header row
   cols = row.Size

   hsv.Initialize(cols*150dip,0)
   Activity.AddView(hsv,0,0,100%x,100%y)

   svRows.Initialize(rows*30dip)
   hsv.Panel.AddView(svRows,0,30dip,cols*150dip,100%y-30dip)
   
   'CREATE HEADER LABELS
   For j=0 To cols-1
      hsv.Panel.AddView(LabelCreate(row.Get(j),Colors.DarkGray,Colors.White) _
                   ,j*150dip   _
                   ,0         _
                   ,149dip   _
                   ,29dip)
   Next
   
   'CREATE RECORD LABELS
   For i=1 To L.Size-1
      row = L.Get(i)
      For j=0 To cols-1
         svRows.Panel.AddView( LabelCreate(row.Get(j),Colors.LightGray,Colors.Black) _
                         ,j*150dip      _
                         ,i*30dip-30dip _
                         ,149dip        _
                         ,29dip)
      Next
   Next

End Sub

Sub Activity_Resume

End Sub

Sub Activity_Pause (UserClosed As Boolean)

End Sub

Sub LabelCreate(str As String,backcolor As Int,textcolor As Int) As Label
   Dim t As Label
   t.Initialize(0)
   t.text=" " & str
   t.color=backcolor
   t.textcolor=textcolor
   t.Gravity = Gravity.CENTER_VERTICAL
   Return t
End Sub
I wish to be useful.

Note:
Be carefully working with databases, responsibility for problems caused by this library is yours.

This library userfull 'in firm' applications.
Because MySQL IPNumber should be accessible through the network.

I'm canceling this red-colored description. You can connect if Mysql server accessible anywhere.

Hello Rafal,

You can create on one of the free mysql server hosts. You can find on web.
And send information to me.

Help please!

First of all thank you very much for your work, it is very helpful for me.

I want to create a grill of buttons with articles. I have the articles in a Mysql database.

I use your example and it works, the trouble comes when I try to use a map. Here is the code:

B4X:
Dim L As List
L.Initialize
L = db.Query("SELECT * FROM articulos")

'load the articles to the grill
Dim aux As Int
aux = 0
For j = 0 To botonesy-1
   For i = 0 To botonesx-1
      If aux < L.size Then
         Dim m As Map   
    m.Initialize
    m = L.Get(aux)
         Buttons(i,j).text=m.Get("descripcion")
      Buttons(i,j).Enabled=True
      Else
         Buttons(i,j).Text=""
         Buttons(i,j).Enabled=False
      End If
      aux=aux+1
   Next
Next

When I compile and run it I receive the following message:

LastException java.lang.ClassCastException: java.util.ArrayList cannot be cast to anywheresoftware.b4a.objects.collections.Map4$MyMap

Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

Hi,

I just tried your library with a Nexus 7 tablet.

I always get the 'no records' found message.

I tested my connectivity with a MySQL manager application directly on the tablet to make sure that I could reach and log on to the server. Everything was ok when using the MySQL manager application.

The thing I noticed was the APK size of 576kb instead of the 2mb reported by others. I get no errors when compiling. Does the MySQL client need to be included in the project files? I'm using b4a 2.5.

Thanks for any info.

JF.

Problem with time execute select query

Hi,

When I use 21 query select like this :

Dim DBUstawieniaList As List
L= a.Query("Select val from dbo.sets where SalonID=" & SalonID & " AND ValueName ='SMTP_FROM_ADDRESS'")

DBUstawieniaList=L.Get(1)

Settings.SMTP_FROM_ADDRESS=DBUstawieniaList.Get(0)

The time execute this querys is 50 secund.

In my opinion is problem with Your library about speed querys.
How can do this faster query.

Hello fasilosman,

Did you wrote sample code at first page?

And, you must change this line your properties.

B4X:
'you can write named server or IP
a.setDatabase("server ipnumber or url","databasename","username","password")

'you can write named server
a.setDatabase("192.168.10.99","clientes","android","android")

' select query

' or get table list for database
'L = a.TableList 'you can get all tables for default database

' CUD: Create, Update, Delete

' Dim r as Int ' return affected rows count
' r = a.ExecuteNonQuery("update tablename set fieldname='xxxx' where keyname='xx'; ")

If L.IsInitialized=False Then
Msgbox("Records Not Found","Warning")
