AFAIK, sencha touch does not support sqlite storage.

However, PhoneGap does, refer to http://docs.phonegap.com/phonegap_storage_storage.md.html . You will though not be able to use the datamanagement of Sencha, as there is no proxy for this (again: AFAIK). This means too that you may miss some functionalities (example: configuring a list view with a data storage so that the list gets automatically filled with the DB data)

Writing a sencha touch proxy for phonegap sqlite may be a solution, maybe not quite easy.

If you're new to Sencha Touch, I would think twice about this...

Why do you want sqlite?

We had used JSON data for a prototype. Now, we think of taking the prototype to next level on a bigger scale. So, just exploring if SQLite can be used a data repository since it is an embedded DB ...
As u said, will explore possibility of using PhoneGap instead sencha . Are you sure that whatever proxies that we use in Sencha won't work with PhoneGap ... Am concerned since I have used Proxy to read data from JSON's ....

Sqlite is superious to localstorage in every sense. Its potential size isn't limited to 5 mb, it supports asynchronous calls and it doesn't have the bugs that localstorage does (http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?132952-localstorage-doesn-t-save-all-data)

Try this tutorial

You will need to program the link between the db and store yourself. I am currently working on a plugin of a store that uses web sql db's to save data, but can be used like a localstorage store (apart for the asynchronous calls)

Hi ssk_hari,

PhoneGap and Sencha do complementary things: PhoneGap interfaces to the device, and STouch helps you build your app on top of this.

The 'model' part theoretically belongs to the STouch part.

As for SQLite, this is slightly shifted: STouch does not provide it, but PhoneGap does. As a consequence, sqlite is not integrated in the STouch application framework.

I don't know of any bridge in this case, which would let STouch access the PhoneGap sqlite functionality through a proxy.

But maybe somebody already wrote one?
