Android :: Grabbing XML File Data From Website

Nov 19, 2010

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" ?>
<eveapi version="2">
<currentTime>2010-11-19 19:23:44</currentTime>
<result>
<rowset name="characters" key="characterID" columns="name,characterID,corporationName,corporationID">
<row name="jennyhills" characterID="90052591" corporationName="Imperial Academy" corporationID="1000166" />
</rowset>
</result>
<cachedUntil>2010-11-19 20:20:44</cachedUntil>
</eveapi>
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?

Android :: How To Stream Data And Resources From Website

Sep 12, 2010

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?

Android :: Application Design - Accessing Website Data

Oct 19, 2010

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?

Android : App To Convert Website Into More Readable Data For Phone?

Nov 12, 2010

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.

Android :: Provide A Database Packaged With .APK File Or Host It Separately On A Website?

Oct 29, 2009

Here is some background about my app:

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.

Android :: Grabbing System Exception

Sep 30, 2009

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..

Android :: Is It Efficient To Use Text File Or XML File To Store Static Data

Jul 31, 2009

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".
