Android :: Using Socket In Service Communicating With More Activities

Aug 29, 2010

I want to create an application to remote control my PC.

For example: Volume (get actual volume level, increase/decrease/mute volume), TVtime (start/quit tvtime, get actual channel, toggle fulscreen, channel up/down, toggle input source, toggle aspect ratio), Amarok (start/quit amarok, get current song, prev/next song, play/stop/ pause), etc.

The application for the PC is done (in python). The communication protocol used is very simple.

For example: "volume:get_level", "volume:up", "volume:mute", etc. Now I'm working on the android application.

What I have implemented till now is to create an activity, with: - an edittext to enter host:port - a button to connect/disconnect to/from server - the onCreate method creates a new thread for socket communication to send/receive messages to/from PC. - a textview to display information received from PC (eg. volume level) - a button to send command to PC I'm using handler to communicate between the tcpclient thread and the main activity.

It is working... But I want to use more than 1 activity. I want to use different activity for every program controlled. Searching for a solution to transfer the thread's handler to a new activity I have found that it is not possible, and I have to use a service.

So, my question is: how to send message from different activities to the same service, how to send message from service to the actual activity and how can I check in the service which is the actual activity? Because the service is running in the same thread as the activities I suppose that I still have to create a new thread for socket communication. How can I send the data received by the socket to the service?

Android :: Managing Activities From Service

Jun 1, 2010

I have a service that listens to the serial port. According to data received from serial i switch between particular service states, and start particular activities on state transitions. I would like to accomplish it in following way: Let's assume there is one active Activity1 started from previous state, I call startActivity from service to start a new one Activity2, but I want to simulatenously destroy Activity1 when Activity2 gets on top of the stack. I tried to call finish() in Activity1.onStop but it seems not to work (Activity1.onDestroy() doesn't get called). I'd prefer to finish Activity1 after Activity2 gets on top in order to avoid blinking.

Android :: How Many Activities Bound To Service

Sep 11, 2009

I have a service that's running in the background, is there any way (short of keeping a count of onBind() and onUnbind()) to know the number of activities that are bound to it?

I am trying to provide a "quit" function. all my activities derive from the same base class. I am keeping a global static around that says the "quit" button was pressed. then on each of the activities onResume() method, I look for the global static "quit" variable and if it's set to true, I call "finish()" so my activity shuts down, and then next activity on the task stack appears -- which goes through the same process of checking the global static "quit" variable until it gets to the root activity -- which effectively goes back to the main desktop screen.

However, I need a way to reset the global static "quit" variable, otherwise, when I launch the app again, it will check the global static quit variable and shutdown immediately - never coming back up. So, I want to know if there are any activities bound to my service, if not, I would set the global static "quit" variable back to false so that the app could be relaunched again.

Android :: Service - Not Bound To Any Activities

Jun 5, 2010

I have an Android Service that I would like to keep running even after the last Activity has been popped off the stack, or the User has chosen to do something else.

Essentially the Service is listening for changes on a remote server, and I would like to generate a Notification if and only if an Activity from the app isn't running(or visible). In other words, I don't want the Notifications to occur while the User is directly interacting with the app.

In the case where the User is directly interacting with the app, the Service will notify the Activity and update appropriate UI elements based on the changes. I plan to implement this through the Observer pattern.

How can the Service know if none of apps Activities are bound to it?

Android :: Java Socket Not Throwing Exceptions On Dead Socket?

Jun 29, 2010

We have a simple client server architecture between our mobile device and our server both written in Java. An extremely simple ServerSocket and Socket implementation. However one problem is that when the client terminates abruptly (without closing the socket properly) the server does not know that it is disconnected. Furthermore, the server can continue to write to this socket without getting any exceptions. Why? According to documentation Java sockets should throw exceptions if you try to write to a socket that is not reachable on the other end!

Android :: Stop Service Only When There Are No Other Activities In App Running

Mar 13, 2010

Is there a way I can test if there are any other activities in my app still alive? I am looking to stop a service in an onDestroy method, but only want to do this if there are no other activities from my app still alive on the stack.

I have the call stop the service in the main activity's onDestroy() method. This works perfect EXCEPT that if a user launches my app, then launches a few activities in my app, then hits the home screen and RELAUNCHES my app, they will subvert my order and the main activity will now be above other activities of my app. From this state, if they hit the back button and 'back out' of my home screen they will trigger the onDestroy() method and kill the service even though there are other activities open on the stack. I want to avoid this by stopping the service ONLY if I am sure there are no other activities of mine open on the stack.

Android :: Service Object Availability Between Activities

Apr 3, 2010

I currently have a service called ConnectionService. It instantiates a Connection object that gives me access to a controller of TCP.

I start the service from a splash screen activity, which sends and intent and starts my "main" activity once a connection has been established. In the "main" activity, I can access my Connection object and communicate with the controller. However, when I start a new activity from the "main" activity and bind to the service, I get a NullPointerException when I try to call methods in the ConnectionService.

I have a service component (common task for all my apps), which can be invoked by any of the apps. I am trying to access the service object from the all activities, I noticed that the one which created the service [startService(intent)] has the right informaion. But rest does not get the informaion needed.

My Code is as below:

CODE:................

If I invoke startService(intent). it creates a new service and runs in parallel to the other service.

If I don't invoke startService(intent), serviceObj.getData() retuns null value.

Android :: Service Interacting With Multiple Activities

Jun 29, 2010

I'm trying to refactor/redesign an Android app. Currently, I've one UI activity (Activity 1) that creates a DataThread. This thread is responsible for network I/O and interacts (provides data) with the UI activity via a handler.

Now, I want to add another activity (a new UI screen with Video) - Activity 2. Activity 1 is still the main activity. Activity 2 will be invoked when the user clicks a button on Activity 1. Activity 2's data also comes from the DataThread.

My idea is to put the logic of my DataThread inside an Android Service (DataService). My question is - can more than on activity bind to my DataService at the same time? Is there a way to tell the service to provide data to a specific activity only?

Android :: Socket Programming - Java - Many Clients One Socket

Nov 12, 2009

Essentially Im trying to get many many java clients connect to a socket on my ColdFusion server (Using the Socket Gateway). However before i even start to code this, Im a little confused about sockets and their performance. First of all, are sockets meant for many(1000+) clients connecting to one socket (say port 2202) on one server? How is the performance if all there waiting for is basically a ping, or something such that when these clients receive this "ping" they can go get some new data.

Android :: Bind Service To Multiple Activities Advice

May 19, 2010

I'm new to Android development and am working on a small test project. I have a service, which communicates with an SQLite3 database, and two activities. A main activity which fetches database information via the service and displays it and a second activity which allows me to add data to the database via the service.

Currently, I have a singleton class which implements the ServiceConnection interface and I'm binding this to the service in the the main activity using the bindService function. Because it's a singleton, I can then use this service connection in both the main activity and second activity to work with the database and it all seems to work quite well.

However, I'm all the time aware that the service connection is bound to the main activity and I'm wondering if this is the wrong/bad way to do it? Would I be best off having two service connections, one in each activity, and binding each to the service?

Android :: Handling Events From One Service For Multiple Activities

Jun 10, 2010

Also, class A initializes another service handler class S which is responsible for establishing a connection to a service and implementing callback handlers for the service. Any of the Activities B, C and D should be able to receive events from the service and update accordingly. If I receive any event in class S from the the service then I want to call a function in Activity B which would be responsible to update the UI elements in Activity B based on the event received. You can assume that the user is in Activity B when the event arrives.

Can I call an activity function like the following in the stub handler for the callback in my class S -

Android :: Connecting Android Bluetooth Client Socket To Ubuntu Server Socket

Jul 15, 2010

I am writing an Android app that should exchange data to a server over Bluetooth, with the server side on a PC running Ubuntu, using the bluez library, in C (or C++).

My Android app fails (IOException) when I try to connect to my server socket on the PC.

Here is essentially what I in the java code (in Android, full eclipse project here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2968234/ThinBTClient.zip)

CODE:...........

This throws IOException after a timeout of 10seconds or so.

On the server side (in Ubuntu 8.10), I basically set up a Bluetooth server socket, along the lines described in the example bluez/sdp-register.c

Down below is my C++ program. To compile it do

g++ -I/usr/include/glib-2.0/ -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -o bt_server bt_server.cpp -lbluetooth

I can do the reverse succesfully, i.e. create a server socket in Android and connect from Linux, however this is not what I want to do!

I think either the problem has to do with my config of Ubuntu.

Android :: Communicating With PC - C#

I want to create an application in Android which communicates with a server application (written in C#, doesn't matter what version of .NET) on the PC via TCP/IP. I was thinking about some kind of RPC like SOAP or XML-RPC. But I want to keep the server application as light and simple as possible. And I think in C# you rely on a Webserver to set up an RPC server. Or maybe is it better to communicate directly via the TcpListener?

I know how to get the information I need on the phone, but I was wondering if there was a way to communicate that information back to the PC? I want to be able to run a program from a PC, which, when the phone is docked, will allow the user to access information about the phone (ie currently running services/processes, bluetooth/wifi connections, etc). I have a bunch of methods that will run on the phone and get all the information, but I want to be able to call those methods from the PC, execute on the phone, then have the information sent back to the PC to display to the user instead of just displaying it on the phone. This is to leave as small a footprint on the phone as possible.

What type of communications should I focus on? What is the common technology to use? Does Java have the equivalent of WCF? Or does it have some sort of simple web service? Can web services be secured with authentication?

Ive heard other references to xml-rpc. Should this be something I should look into?

Is it possible to update a currently running activity from a BroadcastReceiver? I want to update my activity from a BroadcastReceiver that runs alongside it. When I run my app (from Eclipse), my activity starts. When the BroadcastReceiver is triggered, it currently tries to start the activity (with extras in the bundle...this is the important part), but nothing happens, presumably because the activity is already running. So my question is, how do I get the new information to my Activity (or even just tell the activity that there's new information to get if I stick the information in a database)? This seems like it should be fairly straightforward, but I'm clearly missing something.

Android :: Apostrophe In Communicating With PHP Script?

But when any request is send with apostrophe ' the decode function of php doesn't seem to work the way it should.

For example, if I send the request as "Today's Horoscope" then its utf-8 encode will be "Today%27s+Horoscope". I tried to decode this with Android and it was successful. But in php it gives the same text after decoding.

The database is MySql. Is this a problem with database or php? I am not sure about it but is there any workaround to this problem?

General :: Communicating With Mobile Wallet Apps?

Jun 11, 2012

I know that the stuff regarding the secure element inside certain phones is kept on a strictly need-to-know basis and Google only lets certain people have access, but how about the apps that are running on the phone, such as Google Wallet?

What I mean is, is it possible to write an App that communicates with something like Google Wallet (not necessarily this app specifically) instead of an NFC device? At its simplest, when you pass your phone over a credit card terminal, it communicates via the NFC chip to the wallet application. What I'm looking to do is bypass that terminal and just communicate directly with the app via another app, sending the necessary commands directly. Is this possible? (If so, I'm not looking for a how-to, just if it's doable or not).

I know it might be complicated and there's a lot to learn, APDU commands and all that - that's fine.

Android :: Apps - Communicating With Device Plugged In USB Port

Sep 27, 2010

I'm thinking about an Android app (with possibly an accompanying physical device), and i'm trying to figure out whether this is something that's feasible.

1) Let's say I plug my Android to my PC. Would it be possible for an app installed on the PC to communicate with an app running in the cell phone? I just need a very simplistic data exchange, it can even be one-way (just data pushed from the cell phone to the listening app on the PC, whenever the cell phone wants, I don't need any data sent from PC to phone).

When I plug it in, the phone gives me 4 options (charge, disk drive, HTC sync, tethering), which makes me think this is not doable, but still worth the shot.

2) Would it be possible for an app on the PC to talk to an app on the phone through any other way? (Wi-fi, bluetooth, etc). I'm guessing no on wi-fi since neither party has the other's IP (and I want this to kinda just work, not having to input IPs manually all the time).

3) If I make a device that's plugged to the little USB port at the bottom of the phone (and let's say this is a magical device that can do anything, I don't quite care about those details as long as it's doable). Can I have an Android app talk to that device?

4) Any other ideas to make the phone talk to a "device" that I make, or to an app in the PC are more than welcome. Going "through the web" could be an option (although there'd have to be a central server that I own as a middle man, I believe). But i'd prefer if the communication was direct between the two devices.

Android :: Communicating Between Receiver Class And An Activity Class

Jul 14, 2010

I'm just getting into Android development, and I have a question about communicating between a receiver class and an activity class. I'm very new to JAVA and Android so I hope I don't sound too stupid. I'm developing an application where I intercept an SMS message and then based on various elements of that SMS I might delete it once it's been saved to the inbox. I have a receiver class that intercepts the txt message, and I am also able to delete messages from my inbox with code in the activity class using a button at the moment. The problem I have is communicating between the receiver class and the activity class where the code to delete a message resides. I tried putting that code directly into the receiver class but as I'm sure most of you already know the BroadcastReceiver class doesn't seem to support what I need to delete messages. I've been searching for an answer to this for a while, but haven't been able to find anything. Honestly I'm not sure I know enough about JAVA and Android to even recognize a solution if I saw it.

Android :: How To Connect G1 With Pc By Socket

Mar 3, 2009

I have a java server which run on the pc, and a client which run on the G1. Now, G1 is connected to the pc with a usb cable. I want to use socket to let them communicate with each other, as what I did in the emulator. But now G1 cannot find the server through the ip "10.0.2.2".InetAddress serverAddr = InetAddress.getByName ("10.0.2.2"); ClientSocket = new Socket(serverAddr,SERVERPORT); The ClientSocket is null. What's the IP of the pc now?

Android :: Socket Freezes Using GSM Connection

May 27, 2010

I'm working on application that uses a socket connection.I've implemented 2 different Threads for the read() and the write() methods so they are not being blocked by the read.Everything is working well on the WiFi connection but when I switch to GSM connection the connection becomes unstable without any exception being thrown. It means that there are freezes.the write and read seems to work but no data is actually being piped.

Android :: How To Manage Connection To A Socket?

Jun 21, 2010

I would like to know what is the recommendation for socket connection management in Android?In our App we would like to be connected to a TCP/IP server when our app is in the foreground or paused. So, create a connection to a TCP/ IP server when the App starts basically, On Create of the launcher activity. However, we do not want to create a new connection and close connection every time an activity is created, paused, destroyed or orientation changed. So, we save the connection object in the App class and the activities will reuse the same connection.Question is when do I close it? I would like to close the socket when the App is "paused", "stopped" or "destroyed". The problem is these messages are not sent in the App context. How can I figure out if the App is in foreground or not? Even the "Terminated" event for an App is not guaranteed to be delivered. So, in that case how do I know when to disconnect?
