Android :: Locally Hosted Projects With Android SDK Emulator?
Aug 24, 2009
I develop all my sites on a OS 10.5.8 server with PHP and MySQL, and I've configured my /etc/hosts and httpd.conf files to display my site at example.dev in any browser on that machine. I recently installed Android's software development kit which I'd like to use to develop and test stylesheets targeted to mobile Webkit-- but I can't access my locally-hosted projects in the Android browser.
This makes sense, since it's emulating the whole Android OS, but is there a workaround? Or can I only test projects that exist somewhere on the actual computer internet, perhaps in a hidden directory? Someone suggested that I edit my /etc/resolv.conf file, but I don't know the correct way to format a locally-hosted domain in the resolv.conf-- I tried variations of the following, and nothing works:
I just downloaded the source of wordpress app. I am on the process of rebranding the wordpress app (icons & labels) for my self hosted site. I was wondering, if there is a process / configuration option to remove the wordpress links & wordpress blogging options from my app. It doesn't make sense for the user to download my app from market place & go to wordpress site with it.I want the users be able to use both the default wordpress app & my self hosted app. However, for that, I think I need to change the package name in the android manifest and thus refactor all the old package names of all the java class. But then I will loose the ability to sync & get update of the latest build of the wordpress app. Is there a way I can install the same code with the same package (as a different application) without conflicting with the wordpress app?Can anyone point me to the direction where I can find more details on the application namespace / package name conflicts?
I just got myself a HTC Droid Eris (yes I know it is an older model, but it was all I could afford right now). I am desperately searching for a way to sync my Outlook calendar and contacts (notes and tasks would be nice, but lets not push it) from my desktop to my Eris.
I am very uncomfortable using the google platform to host all of my personal information because it resides on the web; unless I am mistaken about this fact.
I would love a Palm Desktop-esque app or program. At least it was a self contained feature that remained on my personal desktop and was not floating around in cyberspace. Any ideas?
Currently I am using my iPod touch for all of my calendars and contacts because it syncs flawlessly with my Outlook; but I didn't pay for smart phone technology to dial phone numbers alone.
Good morning everyone, I am new to programming with Java and Android, I'm trying to make an application to seek an xml in a web address and contains information that should be saved in my sql lite ... The doubt is as follows: I have to download and save the xml file on the device or can just work with it in memory, example: xml = xml.create (www.meusite.com.br / meuxml.xml); how would you do?
I've exported an apk from eclipse. I am able to install it without any problem if I copy it to the phone's sd card.
When trying to download via phone's (Galaxy S) browser I get: "Download unsuccessful".
I have set mime type application/vnd.android.package-archive in the mime.types, restarted apache, still same result. Also tried code...
Still no luck.
I am able to download and install applications from android market. I suspect that apache is not sending the mime type but this is just a shot in the dark. How can I fix the problem and be able to install APKs from my web server? (or at least to check if apache sends correct header with mime type)
I am considering adding a means by which my app can perform functions over Google Voice, and the functionality would make little sense if I required the user to type in a password.I'd like a reasonable plan for storing the password locally and sending it (through google-voice-java) when demanded by Google Voice.Clearly, I'd like to properly represent the risks of the chosen scheme honestly to the user. I'd like the storage to be based atop writing it into a SharedPreferences created with flags.What form of obfuscation is suitable, and with what available salting ingredients and such should I customize it?
I am a bit new to Android. What I need to do is send data back and forth between an activity and a service locally. The information sent is sensitive and must not be able to be picked up by other apps. This excludes using broadcast and the onBind() function if I understand things correctly? So the activity needs to send some string parameters to the service. Also it somehow needs to tell the service which activity started it so the service can reply to the correct class since many different activities will use this service.
Once the service has fetched the information via a http request it is suppose to send that data (just a long string which will later be parsed) back to the activity that started it. How do I go about doing this? Using static variables/functions is not an option since again many actives will be using this service. Sure it would be possible to use a static array to hold the classes but that just seems ugly. It's only possible to send simple variables (not objects) via the intent? There must be a better way to do this.
I have a locally stored webpage (html) under res/raw folder.There is an image that is referenced in this html page (test.gif) which is stored under res/drawables.When I use a webview to display this page, it does not display the image. How can I correctly reference the path to the test.gif image?I tried using a text view with Html.fromHtml() but that does not parse several html tags.
I have an Android app that saves a text file directly onto the phone, in the app's install directory. I need to allow the user to create a new email, attaching this saved text file. When I start the intent to send the email, everything shows up in Gmail correctly, but the attachment does not get sent. All of my searches on stack overflow seem to only deal with attaching an image file from the SD card. Below is the code that I used. Please let me know if I have done something incorrectly.
I would like to implement a functionality in my game to give some daily goodies. But user can easily abuse it by changing the date of the device again and again. I know this can be easily implemented through some server. Is there any way to handle it locally without the involvement of server or network connectivity?
I am currently developing android XMPP client to communicate with the Tigase server setup locally.Before starting development on Android I am writing a simple java code on PC to test connectivity with XMPP server.My XMPP domain is my pc name "mwbn43-1" and administrator username and passwords are admin and tigase respectively.Could anyone please tell me the solution for this problem.I checked the XMPPConnection.java file in the Smack API and it looks the same as given in the link solution.
I hosted my service WCF (.net) using a windows service,i can access to the service from any browser but when i tried to call it from android it doesn't respond. it works fine before the hosting procedure (i used host client by default on Visual Studio).The url that i try to attempt is from android emulator, and installed my webservice in the same local machine(endpoints address http://localhost.).
(i.e. MainActivityProject depends on the other project). Both are android projects created with the eclipse "New Android project functionality) however, the BaseProject does not have an activity defined. However, in BaseProject I define an activity base class where MainActivityProject's Activity derives from. This used to work fine up until 1.1 but now with the 1.5 SDK I get ClassNotFoundExceptions when launching the app.
Any suggestion on how to fix this? I obviously dont want to copy all the sources to a single project as I intend to reuse my Activity base class for other things (it contains some boiler plate stuff that I dont want to have in each and every activity.
I'm having problems connecting locally over wifi to play games against my friends. Is there a procedure you have to go through to connect? Can htc desire phones connect to each other over wifi or do they have to connect through a router?
I always face this problem in my eclipse. I would like have a copy of the apps in all the versions of SDKs/NDKs. And once I have a project in eclipse, and if I have to import the same project from a new location, I get the message saying "Can't import, project of the same name already exists". Is this how it is? We cant import the same project from its 2nd location in eclipse? Everytime I delete the project from old location and put it in new. I know, it is a very unacceptable approach).
Does anyone know of suggestions/recommendations on how to structure Eclipse projects in order to build an apk from multiple projects? I would like to share classes & resources (strings, layouts, etc.) across multiple apps. How to structure Eclipse projects to do such a thing!
I have problems with the following: I want to create to applications. One with a Android service and one with a Activity that will use functions on the Service. Before I splitted this in to applications I got everything working in one application. I can call functions (that are definned in the aidl - file) on the service without problems.
Now the problems coms. I splitted the application into two parts, a Service application and Gui application. The bindins to the service (in the gui application) works and I see that the service is getting created. Then in the onServiceConnected function of the ServiceConnection class I created the following:
mService = IMyService.Stub.asInterface(service); And this gives me the following exception: 03-16 13:53:05.549: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(881): java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: MyPackage.IMyService$Stub
It looks like he can't find the Stub class in IMyService. But the Stub is part of the java file generated out of the aidl-file. Why I get this exception or how I can resolve this?
Here is the situation. I have a java project "LicenseGenerator" in eclipse that depends on commons-codec. I have therefore added the commons-codec jar file to the build path. I have Junit tests and everything is working fine. I have made a different project in the same workspace - which happens to be an Android project - that needs to use my LicenseGenerator classes. I added LicenseGenerator to the "projects" tab in the build path - the classes were recognized and I was able to use them.
Everything compiled and ran. However, when the part of the LicenseGenerator that used the commons-codec was called from my Android project I got the following error. Could not find method org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64.encodeBase64URLSafeString, Referenced from method This basically tells me that the commons-codec was not packaged which the Android project, so I added the commons-codec to the android project as well but the same error appears.
I have a library-only Android eclipse project (no main class, only library classes) that I want to include in my main Android Application project. I went to the Build Path and added the library project to the "Required projects on the build path" on the Projects tab, and checked it on the "Order and Export" tab. However, when the application is run, it emits VerifyError exception, because the class from the library project didn't happen to be packaged together in the apk.
I have several projects which contain the same strings. Is there a way to share the strings.xml file between projects? I have a library project where I put shared .java code which has a strings.xml, but is the data in the library strings.xml added to the including project's strings.xml at build time?
My application is seperated into three projects in eclipse. The first one is a client Android Project called "Project A". The second is a server Android Project called "ProjectB". Lastly, I have "ProjectATest" for testing that has references dependencies to "ProjectA" and "ProjectB".
When excuting InstrumentationTestRunner in "ProjectATest," I get the following error message:
Just got the incredible and I need an app that will help me with work because that's the main reason I got a smartphone. I use to use Google Apps spreadsheets to keep track of all my writers projects, but it seems that would be harder on the incredible. Basically I need something where I can know which client the project is for, which writers are working on it, a short description of the project, if it's done, been paid for, etc. Any app that could help me with this?
I am trying to import projects from a book "Beginning Android 2" but when I choose the root directory the "Finish" button is still grayed out. I've tried importing the project from scratch with no success, and I've also tried to create a template project with the same name and everything and then importing into that (Import existing projects into workspace) but it always says "No projects are found to import".
The contents of the folder are: Res folder, src folder with .java file, the manifest, build, and default.properties files.
