Hi Michael,

if you have a look at the OfflineStorage/Databases folder, you will see there also is an ini file created. However, it does not make sense to put a manual sqlite file in there, because this approach does not work for other platforms. In the current V-Play version, there is no way to use a custom path where the sqlite file is stored or where it is read from, i.e. you cannot bundle a sqlite file with your appliation at the moment. Thus the recommended way to bundle data with your app is to save it as a json file, and then at the first application launch read the contents of this json file with fileUtils.readFile(), then call JSON.parse() for the contents and then store this data into a Storage component. You will only need to do this the first time the application starts – every consecutive call the data is already written in the Storage database.

Cheers, Chris
