adding xml and other files

Postby aglesteban » Mon Dec 08, 2008 8:25 pm

Hello.
I'm gonna explain my problem. I have a service that uses a different class, which has to use some xml files and also other kind of files. But I don't know where can I put those new files that I have to use. The path for finding my xml files doesn't work yet. I don't know how should I do in ordert to add new files to my android project.

How should I do? is there any information about that anywhere?

Thank you for your help.

Hello.
I'have the same problem. I plan to distribute my application with a binary file that should contain some reference infromation(like country names, e.t.c) .
I want this file be bundled with my apk package. And populate databse with this reference info when application starts for a first time

But i've failed to find a way to this. I would appreciate any help!
Thanks.

Can they not be included in the res/raw folder of your project? That way you can access them from code easily, I've just done the same with some bitmap fonts.

Thanks! This helps.
My mistake was that I'd tried to put that file under res\my arbitary folder....
I must dedicate more time to docs. This is me second day with Android :)
