    @Yacinoben Why do you ask how to build PostgreSQL in a Qt forum?
    Why do you want to use PostgreSQL on an Android device?
    It is quite unusual to run a full-blown SQL server on a mobile device!
    Or do you only want to use the client?
    To build it for Android you need to install Android NDK first.
    But you better ask PostgreSQL folks.



  • I have a client application, when i try to connect in the database. I get this message : Driver not loaded. I use a postgresql, and i have just libqsqlite.so in "android_armv7\plugins\sqldrivers" . I know how to build for the desktop, but no for android .
    https://wiki.qt.io/Build_Qt_5_PostgreSQL_Plugin_for_Android : this is just for linux, but i have windows

    @Yacinoben Your client application is running on a mobile device and connects to SQL server which is exposed over the internet?
    Not a good idea. Your SQL server should not have direct connection to the internet (for security reasons). Instead you should implement a REST API which will provide clients an indirect access to the data in the SQL database.

    Again: it would be better to ask PostgreSQL developers how to build the client for Android.



  • Thanks for your answer. I didn't know for rest. I will try to work with rest
