Storing and Updating Data Daily

Posted 30 July 2012 - 11:24 AM

Hi all,

I'm working on an app that requires a lot of data to be stored and sometimes updated daily. It will be showing events that happen in my College on a daily basis and once they are over I want to remove them from the app and add new ones as they need to be seen in the app.

I was thinking of storing all this data in a database and using the SQLlite library for it, however I'm not sure if this is the best route to go. I was debating perhaps using XML/JSON and having a file for each event, but I'm pretty sure it could get too sloppy.

Could anyone else give me any other insight or suggestions?

Thanks.

For storing a large amount of data I think databases are the way to go. If you don't need to grow the data set a large amount at a time SQLite should be fine. If you have to add hundreds of records at a time I would probably use mysql or postgresql. They handle fast growing data a little better than sqlite.
