Chapter 12 Crime-database file

Hello, I’m reading the 5th edition of Android Programming. In Chapter 12 Coroutines and Databases, the program requires a crime-database file.

Is this something that needs to be downloaded and inserted into the asset folder? The first mention of it in the book is page 251. I could be mistaken but it doesn’t look like there are any instructions on how to create it or where to download it from.

All it says is “Copy or move the database file from the downloaded solutions into the assets/ folder (Figure 12.5).”

Can someone help me locate the database? Looks like the rest of this app is useless without it.


The solutions are hosted here:

The database file is located in the folder for Chapter 12.
