Just wondering what would be the best way to grab the following data and parse it.Here's an example of some the data I want to pull.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<rowset name="characters" key="characterID" columns="name,characterID,corporationName,corporationID">
<row name="jennyhills" characterID="90052591" corporationName="Imperial Academy" corporationID="1000166" />
I've seen some examples on how to parse XML data but they are all based on if statements and that's a lot of hard coding is there a more genertic way to do this?
how do you stream certain bits of information from a website. From what I understand webview launches a web page, but what if I want to only stream a paragraph that was published on a site. Example: Yahoo! Fantasy Football. Updates on players and the news feed about them.This is obviously a lot more complicated than my question. I would be interested in a tutorial that could walk me through this. Does this also take programming on the server side to send this out?
I was wondering what the best approach is on Android to retrieve information from a HTML page hosted on the internet? For example I'd like to be able to get the text from the following page at the start of each day:http://www.met.ie/ forecasts /sea-area.asp I have been downloading and parsing XML files but I have never tried to parse information from a HTML type file before.Is there a native way to parse the information I want?Or do I need a third party library?Or do I need to look into screen scraping?
I am trying to make an application in which I need to fetch some data from an website. Do we have some sample application which demonstrate how to do this? I do not want to open the website from browser, just want to query through java code..and get the result.
I am new to Android development and am interested in working out a design of an application. I am however, unfamiliar with the best way to handle what I want to do. I am interested in obtaining information from my band's Joomla website and placing it into an Android application. At the moment I'd like to get News articles posted and potentially other information that I create on the site. I was thinking of doing this by setting up RSS feeds for the website. Would it be better to somehow access the data directly by connecting to the database? I don't know PHP so I can't develop a webservice to access the content. Any ideas?
I am looking into developing an App that will convert a website into more readable data for an android app. I am at university and have an online notice board which can be viewed on the web but if possible I would like to transfer this into an app on android to make it more easy to read on mobile devices.
What I thinking is that the app would go to the website where the notice board is held and read in the html code to display each notice in a list adapter view. Each notice is within its own div so I assume I could use that to split each notice up into its own button on the list adapter view. Is this possible and if so how I can go about doing this. I have tried google for an answer but I have not yet found a solution to this problem.
I am developing an Android app that will display a random quote or verse to the user. For this I am using an SQLite database. The size of the DB would be approximately 5K to 10K records, possibly increasing to upto 1M in later versions as new quotes and verses are added. Thus the user would need to update the DB as and when newer versions are of the app or DB are released.
After reading through some forums online, there seem to be two feasible ways I could provide the DB: 1. Bundle it along with the .APK file of the app, or 2. Upload it to my app's website from where users will have to download it
I want to know which method would be better (if there is yet another approach other than these, please do let me know).
After pondering this problem for some time, I have these thoughts regarding the above approaches:
Approach 1: Users will obtain the DB along with the app, and won't have to download it separately. Installation would thereby be easier. But, users will have to reinstall the app every time there is a new version of the DB. Also, if the DB is large, it will make the installable too cumbersome.
Approach 2: Users will have to download the full DB from the website (although I can provide a small, sample version of the DB via Approach 1). But, the installer will be simpler and smaller in size. Also, I would be able to provide future versions of the DB easily for those who might not want newer versions of the app.
Was just wondering if anyone had any code samples about writing and retrieving data from a website? I am currently creating an application which populates its textviews by accessing information from an online source.
when i download large data from website, i got this error information:
I/global (20094): Default buffer size used in BufferedInputStream constructor. It would be better to be explicit if an 8k buffer is required.

I am new to android programming and have a strong keen interest to learn it. I want to write a program that fetches the data from a website, segregates it and displays it on the screen of the phone. The data could be grocery list from a supermarket or sale items in a mall. Could you please suggest as to how I can go ahead and start this.
I'm using the Galaxy S Epic 4G and I like to send people random pictures in texts all the time but when i do this i have to do like a google image search and download the image and then attach and send it. Im trying to find an app that could just grab and message the picture without me downloading it first. Maybe even have an image search function built in?
I want my Android app to take a picture, as part of something larger it is doing. Ideally, I would like to just send out an Intent saying "snap a picture" and get back an image file. Is there an Activity that can handle that, or do I need to do all the low level work with the Camera class myself?
i'm andrea from androidiani.com, i'm working on a library that will help developers about managing unexpected exceptions. The library is quite simple on it's idea, but i can't grab the unexpected exception withouth the use of a "global" try catch clausole. I saw the instrumentation class but i think it can't be useful for me.. Obviously the library will be free and the webservice too.. ( unless for the applications that generates quite low traffic ) But i personally don't love the way of global try catch..
Are there APIs for grabbing the voice (in both directions) during a call? I'm interested in whether it can be intercepted before it's sent out (outgoing) and before it's played by the speaker (incoming).
I have some reference data in a text file (~5MB) that I want to use with might android application.The file is of the format: 1|a|This is line 1a 1|b|This is line 1b 2|a|This is line 2a 2|b|This is line 2b 2|c|This is line 2c
What I want to know is the most efficient way (less memory, fast, size etc.) to use this file within my application.
a.) Should I save the file as a raw resource and open and read the whole file whenever I need a certain line. b.) Should I convert the file to XML and use XPath to query the file when ever I need to look up a value <!--sample XML --> <data> <line number="1"> <entry name="a">This is line 1 a</entry> </line> </data> c.) Should I just copy & paste the whole file as a static string array in the application and use that. [EDIT] I will also need to search this file and jump to arbitrary keywords e.g. "line 1a".
I know I could download the ones I want using itunes and then drag and drop them into my sd card. However I really like the way Google Listen is setup, it took a bit of getting used to thou. Theres a few podcasts that wont show up on Listen but I can easily find on Itunes. Is there a link I can grab from the Itunes site and copy it into Listen?

This is truly a beginner's question. I installed and successfully ran the notepad tutorials Note pad v1,2,3 and typed in a few notes. Can i import data (manually )from an external text file into the sq lite dbs? I looked in my Notepad workspace folders but no dbs seem to have been created? I looked for anything with .db extension or named 'data' as specified in the code.
