SQLiteDatabase or XML(saving)?

Postby freeb0rn » Tue Mar 22, 2011 11:05 am

Hello guys,
Thanks for making android a wonderful platform.

What is the best option for saving a well formatted document(a document with images) on a device?
I know this can be done by saving to a XML file or on a database, but which of these two is the most preferable.

Hope the question was clear.

Thanks in advance.

If you have images, SQLite can save images using BLOB data type and i think its not feasible on XML format.

My first option is to use SQLite to save image as you have mentioned.
Lets go to snipe!
