Room and external database (SQLite browser)

Hi all,

I’m just starting the adventure with programming mobile applications, so maybe it will be an easy topic for you.
How can I use an external database using ROOM?
I need to use an external database for displaying values in recyclerview. I added a database to the project’s assets then I’m going to create components Database, Entity and DAO.
Where can I implement a path to that database?
Also how can I display data in recyclerview?


You cannot. It is designed to work in local. Also this forum is about the Kotlin language, while Room is an Android library, mainly written in Java. I’d recommend to read the official documentation first. If you need more help have a look at the Udacity courses!
