Android : Create A Local Repository.xml / What Is Repository.xml Format?
Mar 2, 2010
I would like to know how could I create a repository.xml to be read by the AVD Manager with only the 1.5 version? What is the repository.xml format?
The reason of doing this it's because I will be teaching some classes about Android in a Post Graduation, but the Internet link is too slow. So I am trying to set a local repository to help me with time.
I have downloaded an entire copy of a particular Android branch following the official guide and using the repo utility.
Now i have some modified files that i want to use to customize the build process, the problem is that i have already pasted this files over the ones in local repository and my repository is now unusable and repo gives only errors when i try to sync.
What is the best approach when i want to modify existing file in my local copy of an Android official branch? What is the best approach when i want to replace 1 or multiple files?
I am using a Mac with Eclipse Galileo, trying to load Android code from a public repository. I tried 'Checkout from SVN' and the URL is: http://secrets-for-android.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/secrets-for-android-read-only This is from the website: http://code.google.com/p/secrets-for-android/source/checkout
I get the error: Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: Bad URL passed to RA layer svn: URL 'http://secrets-for-android.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/secrets-for-android-read-only' non-existent in revision 114" Keep location anyway? I'm currently using this svn client in Eclipse to manage my own secure repository on another website, so I know it's installed correctly and works.
I'm having a lot of difficulty installing the ADT plug in under Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo)... I have tried both http and https access to the Eclipse update site, and in both cases I get the following errors:
An error occurred while collecting items to be installed: No repository found containing: binary,org.eclipse.jdt_root, 3.5.1.r351_v20090810-0600-7r88FEoFI0WTo6Az-1qFRHm37ChJ (second line repeated about 20x for various missing files)
I found a post (http://tinyurl.com/yc2cr28) where removing/re-adding the source URL in Eclipse is also recommended. This didn't help the "No repository found" errors.
Has anyone else experienced/resolved this issue? I am running the "Eclipse for Java Developers" from Eclipse.org, and the Sun Java 5 JDK.
I've been trying to create a local connection to a computer with a Socket from the emulator thinking that it would automagically uses a emulated wifi connection. It doesn't work, in particular because wifi is not supported on the emulator:
- Does a Socket connection automatically choose the fastest connection (the wifi one if it exists).
- Why wifi not supported by the emulator? Will it be?
For those in countries still not blessed by the grace of having the possibility to buy a Gphone, that can be useful...
I'm writing an Android app that requires SSL client authentication. I know how to create a JKS keystore for a desktop Java application, but Android only supports the BKS format. Every way I've tried to create the keystore results in the following error: handling exception: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: null cert chain
So it looks like the client is never sending a proper certificate chain, probably because I'm not creating the keystore properly. I'm unable to enable SSL debugging like I can on the dekstop, so that's making this much more difficult than it should be.
For reference the following is the command that IS working to create a BKS truststore: keytool -importcert -v -trustcacerts -file "cacert.pem" -alias ca -keystore "mySrvTruststore.bks" -provider org.bouncycastle.jce.provider.BouncyCastleProvider -providerpath "bcprov-jdk16-145.jar" -storetype BKS -storepass testtest
Here is the command I've tried that is NOT working to create a BKS client keystore:
I want to download my apk file into "/data/local/" directory. I am able do this in external storage but unable on "/data/local" also i was trying to create folder on same location but could not do that. Through "adb push" it is possible but i need to do this java program.
Is it possible to create a sort of wifi lan network (i.e., make the captivate work as a local area network router without internet access)? this could potentially be useful: quick filesharing, improvised LAN for games, etc...
I published an application that stores data in a local database.
Now I have to publish an update to this application to fix some little bugs, but I am afraid that downloading and installing the update will delate the local database associated with the previous version.
I would like to know how the update system works. Will installing an update completely delete all the apk, files, databases associeted with the previous version?
This maybe be a simple question but how do you format a double into a dollar format? For example I have a value of 4.2. In a textview I would like to see $4.20. Also what are my options for applying the correct currency symbol?
Passing two int values m =0 & s = 11, to below function String formatted = String.format("%1$02d:%2$02d", m, s); returning the value like .0:11 ,What could be the problem? m=0, s=11 -->.0:11 m=0, s=1 --> .0:.1. The 0 added to format the string always coming as '.' (dot). Can anyone know ,from where the number patterns are getting loaded in Android? I gone thorough the code, Its related the following file, androiddalviklibcoreicusrcmainjavacomibmicu4jniutil Resources.java ->localeData.numberPattern. How the pattern for particular locale is loaded, What could be the problem for the above?
I am trying to convert string to date, and then I ma saving this date in a file , which saves in the following format:Mon Jun 21 16:31:24 Asia/Karachi 2010.and then when later I read this date from file as a String, I again want to save it to a Date,
How to create an HTTP request object of POST type in android? Which class need to be extend or what method need to implement? How to establish connection to a server? Actually i want to connect to a microsoft exchange server, and then i have to send a request to it using HTTP.
Folks, I am wondering if anyone here can recommend a way of listening to a couple of local/regional radio stations on my HTC Desire, running Froyo on o2 in the UK The stations are Northsound 1 in the Aberdeen area, and BBC Radio Scotland FM. I have tried A Online Radio and Myplayer, neither will recognise the stations even when entering the url I would use in the pc's browser to listen online at home. Only reason I want to stream these is the non-existent reception using the native FM radio app in the phone.
I have an application which requires networking service. I took on LWUIT4IO and adjusted it to my needs so now i have a network queue that can run one or more network threads.Now, my application is based on single root activity that spawns other child activities as needed (it's a reservation center for vacations, car rental etc.. each in it's own activity). The network is common to all and should be used by all activities. the network thread requires, basically, a callback to notify it's finished and return the result (input stream or byte array) .At first i thought that i should use a service instead of a singleton that will be started in the root activity(the service will also be started in the root activity), however working with a local service is problematic for me: 1. no callbacks which makes me use intents to encapsulate the request esponse in intents time consuming, also since there is not single point of listening (i have to use BroadcastReceivers)i have to add a calling class name or some other identifier so the sender of the request will know it's for him, i think this is also a waste of time and resources since i need only one listener.
i think i CAN use callbacks if i use Binder object to return local instance of my Service and then use the queuing method directly, this is problematic for me as acquiring Binder object is asynchronous and i need it 'on the spot' 3. I thought of using a static instance of the service and null it in onDestroy of the service, but if i use that way, i'm not so sure i need a service... 4. i saw a small answer in stackoverflow about inheriting application and putting whatever member you need there so when you use getApplication you get this instance and then you can retrieve whatever you want, is this even advisable ?
I'm developping an android application. This application use a web service to get some informations. The web service is deployed on local in my computer. When i run my app with the android emulator, everything is ok.The emulator use the address 10.0.2.2 to use the local web service.Now i would like to know if it's possible to connect my mobile phone to my computer and to have access to my local web service.In others words, use my own mobile phone instead of the emulator.
I have some web pages that I want to bundle with my Android application and display as static pages. Where do I put them? How do I access them? I'm working in Eclipse, so I want a solution that automatically bundles them.I've tried putting my web pages in res/raw, and I can read them as an input stream from there, so I could push that into a WebView. But I'd really prefer if I could stick them somewhere and access them with a URL. I've tried file:///android_asset/about.html but that didn't work. Surely there's a way to form a URL to display bundled pages.
I have ListView whose CursorAdapter is bound to my local database table. Is there a good way to make it so that when new entries / new data is inserted into my table, my ListView automatically refreshes?
This is easily done on ContentProviders via ContentObservers. How do I do the same when iterating over local databases?
This thread is to discuss the pros and cons of each travel app and recommend your favorite one(s). Please mention ones that aren't listed above in the poll too!
I'm not sure if "local" is the correct term to use but I'm just talking about apps like, Yelp!, WHERE, Google Places Directory, etc. I've downloaded most of them but, as with most things, there's a few things I like about each and none of them are "perfect" in my view. So I was just curious what everyone's opinion was when it came to all these apps and which one they like the best and why.
I'm trying to read some local files, and ive been reading a lot of stuff about it, but i still don't know where to store the files on my phone and how to get the right path. Some say, it should be stored on /data/data/your.package.here/files but where is that, i mean i can get there when using the emulator but i have no clue how to put files in this on a real device.
