Create Database from assets folder

Put your dbname.sqlite or dbname.db file in assets folder of your project.

Here is How you can access database object to your activity.

// Create Databasehelper class object in your activity.
   private Databasehelper db;

Then in onCreate Method initialize it and call createDatabase() Method as show below.

db = new Databasehelper(MainActivity.this);
        try {
            db.createDataBase();
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }

Perform all of your insert, update, delete and select operation as shown below.

String query = "select Max(Id) as Id from " + TABLE_NAME;
        db.openDataBase();
        int count = db.getId(query);
        db.close();
