Android - Getting information from online database

I have created online database consisting of a table with four rows, KEY_ID, KEY_SLOT_NAME, KEY_AVAILABLE_SLOT, and KEY_TOTAL_SLOT.

Each of them has their own rows and assigned a default value and only KEY_AVAILABLE_SLOT will have its values changed.

I've created the JSONFunctions class

public class JSONfunctions { public static JSONObject getJSONfromURL(String url) { InputStream is = null; String result = ""; JSONObject jArray = null; // Download JSON data from URL try { HttpClient httpclient = new DefaultHttpClient(); HttpPost httppost = new HttpPost(url); HttpResponse response = httpclient.execute(httppost); HttpEntity entity = response.getEntity(); is = entity.getContent(); } catch (Exception e) { Log.e("log_tag", "Error in http connection " + e.toString()); } // Convert response to string try { BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader( is, "iso-8859-1"), 8); StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(); String line = null; while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) { sb.append(line + "\n"); } is.close(); result = sb.toString(); } catch (Exception e) { Log.e("log_tag", "Error converting result " + e.toString()); } try { jArray = new JSONObject(result); } catch (JSONException e) { Log.e("log_tag", "Error parsing data " + e.toString()); } return jArray; } }

As from How to connect Android app to MySQL database?

Now I'm stuck with fourth step which is to read the JSON Tag because I don't understand what that is.

Here's a sample code usage back when I was using my offline db for testing :

final TextView parkAvaliableA = (TextView) findViewById(; parkAvaliableA.setText("Available Slot : " + SlotA.available_slot); Button buttonA = (Button) findViewById(; buttonA.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() { public void onClick(View v) { if(SlotA.available_slot == 0) { Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Parking slot A is full", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); } else { SlotA.available_slot -= 1; db.updateSlot(new ParkingSlot()); } //parkAvaliableA.setText("Available Slot : " + SlotA.available_slot); Intent myIntent = new Intent(MainMap.this, ParkA.class); MainMap.this.startActivity(myIntent); } });

I need basic update operation for my database so that I can update the KEY_SLOT_AVAILABLE value every button press..

And one OOT question if I may : "Should I write KEY_ in every db column? Or it's just a hassle? I started using KEY_ when I read some online tutorials use KEY_"

-------------Problems Reply------------

You need to write a script as shown below to connect to a MySql Database:

$servername = "Your_Server_Name";
$username = "Your_UserName";
$password = "Your_Password";
$dbname = "Your_DB_Name";

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);

// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {
die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);

After successful connection to the database you can perform all db operations with the server.

Check the following links you will get an idea:

Hope this helps.
