Step #4: Update the Manifest

Step #4: Update the Manifest

The glue tying the content-provider implementation to the rest of your application resides in your AndroidManifest.xml file. Simply add a provider element as a child of the <application> element:

 android:authorities="com.commonsware.android.tourit.Provider" />

The android:name property is the name of the content-provider class, with a leading dot to indicate it is in the stock namespace for this application’s classes (just like you use with activities).

The android:authorities property should be a semicolon-delimited list of the authority values supported by the content provider. Recall, from earlier in this chapter, that each content Uri is made up of a scheme, an authority, a data type path, and an instance identifier. Each authority from each CONTENT_URI value should be included in the android:authorities list.

Now when Android encounters a content Uri, it can sift through the providers registered through manifests to find a matching authority. That tells Android which application and class implements the content provider, and from there Android can bridge between the calling activity and the content provider being called.
