Android Question

Getting SQLiteException: near "Nov": syntax error (code 1)

I am trying to develop a local db with the help of Active android.In model class I have a field called updated_date which is a string.I have converted the string updated_date to Date format and trying to compare the field with today's date in where clause.But while doing this I have got a SQLiteException in where() of Active android.

Model Class

@Column(name = "Updated_date")
public String updated_date = "2016-11-16";


DBUtil Class

public static int getTotalPreVisitCount() throws ParseException {

int i = new Select()
.from(Lead.class)
.where(Utility.getDateFromString(new Lead().updated_date) + " >= ?",Utility.getDateFromString(Utility.todayDate()))
.where(new Lead().lead_status + " = ",LMSUtil.PRE_VISIT)
.execute().size();
return i;
}


Converting String field to Date

public static Date getDateFromString(String dbdate) throws ParseException {

SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
Date date = formatter.parse(dbdate);
return date;
}

Please help me to solve the issue.I don't understand where i have made mistake.

Answer

In this line :

where(Utility.getDateFromString(new Lead().updated_date) + " >= ?",Utility.getDateFromString(Utility.todayDate()))

You are trying to make SQLite compare two Date objects directly which is not possible. Try comparing their UNIX timestamps instead :

where(Utility.getDateFromString(new Lead().updated_date).getTime() + " >= ?",Utility.getDateFromString(Utility.todayDate()).getTime())
