Android :: Cannot Open Database In Service Layer Class

Sep 15, 2010

When I create a instance of the SQLiteOpenHelper, I always need a "Context" to be passed as its constructor's argument. To use this "Context", in my service layer class, I extends Activity class, though I do not display this activity on the screen because it is my service layer. I always get NullPointer exception when I open the SQLiteOpenHelper in my service layer class, Is it because my service layer class extends the Activity class but I did not show this activity on mobile screen? (That's there is no intent to my service layer class), if it is so, how to get rid of it if I wanna open a SQLiteOpenHelper in my service layer class which do not need to extends Activity, but need a Context object to pass to SQLiteOpenHelper?

Android :: Core Class Access Resources At The App Layer

Sep 22, 2009

Can a core class such as "AbsListView" access resources, such as xml files, and .png's, in a 3rd party app installed in the normal way (at the app level)?

I realize this is a change in framework code, and that is fine for my purposes. So, for example, if I know that I am going to install an app called "MyApp", could I go into frameworks/base/core/java/android/ widget/ and tell it to use an xml file and .png's that live in that app? Here is the line I would want to modify: setSelector(getResources().getDrawable(;

Android :: Open Helper To Open Database And Get A Cursor To Pass To CursorAdapter

Jul 1, 2010

I have a ListActivity that uses a CursorAdapter to fill the rows in the view. I wrote a database helper class that gives me back results for common queries I make for my app, and it uses an SQLiteOpenHelper implementation I wrote to open the database. I use the open helper to open the database and get a cursor to pass to my CursorAdapter.

Here's a code snippet:


The problem I'm having, that I didn't have before I implemented the open helper (before I just opened the database directly without a helper), is when I click on an item, which takes me to another activity, and then go back to this activity. When it initializes everything is fine, and my list is populated fine, but when I go back from the activity that follows, the list is empty and in the LogCat I see "Invalid statement in fillWindow()".

It appears from a few post I've seen that the reason is, when I requery the cursor, the database is closed. But I'm not closing it! I'm scratching my head on this one.

Samsung Moment :: Application Layer Of The Phone Is Not Receiving Hardware Layer's Data Correctly

Dec 21, 2009

Ok so I know many are having battery issues. You, like me, probably have more battery life than you think. This is because the application layer of the phone is not receiving the hardware layer's data correctly (hold talk button, end call button, and middle button upon starting up your turned-off phone, this boots in test mode which shows you hardware layer battery power, aka the correct battery life estimate). It's causing another problem because some applications can't be run when the phone THINKS it's about to die.

Android :: Static Database Class To Use With Any Activity

Jan 5, 2010

I am new to Android, and I haven't developed any app regarding databases on Android yet. So I have a few basic questions. I am after a good database class sample, that will let me to run the CRUD operations. I would like to use it as a static class

like: clsDB->Select("select * from clients");
or objClient->Delete(clientid);

I am wondering if someone, can share his database classes, if more people share the best. Also I have in mind to reuse this class in multiple ways, I will have services, activities etc...

Android :: How To Use SQLite Database? (Create / Open)

Apr 18, 2010

I am trying to use

SQLiteDatabase.openDatabase( "/data/data/edwin11.myapp/databases/myapp.db", null, (SQLiteDatabase.CREATE_IF_NECESSARY | SQLiteDatabase.NO_LOCALIZED_COLLATORS));

To create/open a database instead of making use of the SQLiteOpenHelper (because I want to pass in the flag SQLiteDatabase.NO_LOCALIZED_COLLATORS. However, I am getting this exception for that line of code:

04-18 09:50:03.585: ERROR/Database(3471): sqlite3_open_v2("/data/data/edwin11.myapp/databases/myapp.db", &handle, 6, NULL) failed

04-18 09:50:03.665: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(3471): at android.database.sqlite.SQLiteDatabase.openDatabase(

Doing some testing just before that line of code (using File.isExists) shows that the file /data/data/edwin11.myapp/databases/myapp.db does not exist. Would that be the cause of the error? (Or am I just using SQLiteDatabase.openDatabase the wrong way?) Would it help if I create the file beforehand? (Shouldn't that be taken care of by the SQLiteDatabase.CREATE_IF_NECESSARY flag that I passed in?) If creating the file manually is the way to go, is it just an empty file, or do I have to write something to it?

Android :: Database And Web Service Models

Aug 20, 2010

I'm watching the 2010 Google I/O video on this topic and I have a few questions to make sure I understand properly. Google I/O 2010 - Android REST client applications Please note I also have a very limited understanding of CursorAdapters Right now my application just has a UI layer. I've created an object called DbAdapter using some Google tutorials to create a small database and a table in that database. I've created a class I'm calling DataBroker (extending ContentProvider) to manage retrieving data from the database and calling web services to update data. Scenarios:

1) Suppose I want to display a list of items in my ListActivity. Am I correct in assuming I will write a function in my DataBroker that creates a Cursor to the table in my database that holds those items, fire up a service which launches a thread which calls a web service to get additional items, then return the Cursor to my UI thread? Doing this would likely return the Cursor to my UI thread before the web service finished, but, I'm assuming, once the CursorAdapter has a Cursor, it will automatically show any changes made to that database table, yes?

2) Now I have a list of items in my ListView. Suppose I give the user some functionality to delete an item. The user executes this functionality. It should call a function in my DataBroker which updates the row in my database corresponding to that item, setting the status column to STATE_DELETING (which will remove the row from the ListView because the Cursor has a clause excluding this state), then fire off a service that fires a thread that hits my web service, then deletes the row in the database when finished? Also, suppose I have multiple Activities, am I looking at having a static Cursor for each Activity with a list, grabbing that Cursor in the Activity's onCreate, and if that Cursor is null, hitting my DataBroker?

Android :: Class Derived From Intent Service Must Have Default Constructor

May 8, 2009

I'm posting this to share the lessons I learned while working with IntentService. IntentService has a single constructor that takes a string argument "name". The documentation has no description of what name is used for. In looking at the sources, I found that its only use is in naming the worker thread for the IntentService. This thread is named IntentService [name].

I initially implemented the constructor of the derived class to also take a String argument and passed it along to the derived class. This is wrong. This will cause the startService() call to generated a java.lang.InstantiationException in the application containing the service i.e. you don't get the exception in the application calling startService(). A clue to the actual problem is a little further up in the logs:"newInstance failed: no <init>()"

The derived class must have a Default constructor and that constructor must call super() passing a string for the name component of the worker thread name.
public class MyIntentService extends IntentService {
public MyIntentService() { super("MyIntentService");
} @Override
protected void onHandleIntent(Intent intent) {
// Handle events on worker thread here }

Android :: How To Stop Service Method Of Calling Activity Class?

Jul 2, 2010

I am trying to call my service class's stopService() method from my activity. But I don't know how to access stopservice method from my activity class. I have the below code but its not working. This is HomeScreen class:
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
enablecheck = (CheckBox)findViewById(;
enablecheck.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new OnCheckedChangeListener(){
public void onCheckedChanged(CompoundButton buttonView, boolean isChecked) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
startService(new Intent(HomeScreen.this, AutoService.class));
} else {
stopService(new Intent(HomeScreen.this, AutoService.class));
} } });
This is Service Class:
public class AutoService extends Service {
private static final String TAG = "AutoService";
private Timer timer;
private TimerTask task;
public IBinder onBind(Intent intent) {
return null;
} @Override
public void onCreate() {
Toast.makeText(this, "Auto Service Created", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
Log.d(TAG, "onCreate");
int delay = 5000; // delay for 5 sec.
int period = 5000; // repeat every sec.
timer = new Timer();
timer.scheduleAtFixedRate(task = new TimerTask(){
public void run() {
} }, delay, period);
public boolean stopService(Intent name) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
return super.stopService(name);
} }

Android :: Service Unable To Call Java Class Methods / Way To Fix?

Jun 22, 2010

Hi, custom classes which are part of a framework, so nothing graphical. One of those (singleton) classes is a Logging class which send logs to my server. I noticed that even though I can call the classes methods in my service it actually won't be logging anything... In my specific example it's osmething like : Logger.getInstance().log("Whatever I want to Log"); Obviously the getInstance is a static method so it can be accessed from anywhere within my project right away.. I was wondering though why this method for example isn't getting called ? Also how do I debug a Service ? Btw I am using of IPC from one of my Activities which gets bound to the service and can start/stop the music for example...

Android :: Call AsyncTask Methods From Another Class - Service - Callbacks?

Jun 1, 2010

I was wondering if it's possible to call specific methods defined within the AsynTask class from another class and/or service ?

In my specific case I have a Service playing some sounds, but the sound is selected from a List with available sounds...

When a sounds is selected it is downloaded from my home server, this takes some time (not much, let's say around the 3-4 seconds, the sounds/effects aren't big in size)...

So my problem at the moment is that I have a service to play those sounds, and when I select one I wanted to show a progressdialog... The way (if I understood correctly) is to use an AsyncTask, but the only thing the AsyncTask will do is telling my Service to play a specific sound from my server... So there is no "callback" from the service to the Asynctask...

How can I call a running AsyncTask, which sits in another class, and tell him all work is done and thus he can stop showing the ProgressDialog ? Or am I over-engineering it and there are other ways ?

Android :: Android - Use One SQLiteOpenHelper Class For Multiple Database Files

Nov 20, 2010

My app uses two databases (separate files). To handle these databases I have created two Helper classes which extend SQLiteOpenHelper, one for each database.

I am now going to add a third database and wonder whether I need to create yet another Helper class (and if I used a 4th and a 5th database would I need even more Helper classes), or can I use the same Helper class for multiple databases?

The problem that I see with trying to use just one Helper class is that I can't see how to pass the name of the individual database files to the Helper. At present the name of the database is hard-coded as a Static field of each of the Helper classes, but if I had only one Helper class I would need to be able to pass the different names in to the Constructor when creating the separate Helper objects; the problem is that the SQLiteOpenHelper Constructor seems to be called by Android with just one parameter: the Context.

Android :: Inside Service Class / Executing Method For Toast From Scheduled TimerTask

Apr 30, 2010

I am trying to execute a {public void} method in Service, from scheduled TimerTask which is periodically executing.This TimerTask periodically checks a condition. If it's true, it calls method via {className}.{methodName};However, as Java requires, the method needs to be {pubic static} method, if I want to use {className} with {.dot}.The problem is this method is for notification using Toast(Android pop-up notification) and Status Bar.But for this to work, the method must not have {static} modifier and resides in Service class.So, basically, I want background Service to evaluate condition from scheduled TimerTask, and execute a method in Service class.Can anyone help me what's the right way to use Service, invoking a method when certain condition is satisfied while looping evaluation?
