Android :: App Fails To Launch?

Apr 16, 2010

I'm trying to do is open a very simple application that is supposed to do nothing but display an imageView above a textView. The application worked fine until I added the imageView so I'm assuming my problem has something to do with that.

Here is the code:


Here is my layout -> main.xml


When I try and run the app in Eclipse through the Emulator the emulator gives me the following error:

The application Application Name ( has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

The Console log in Eclipse shows the following messages:

Android :: SDK Fails To Install ?

Jan 6, 2010

When I try to install the android SDK it fails to install.

My OS is Windows XP. I just downloaded and installed Java JDK 1.6 Java -version from the command line returns: java version "1.6.0_17" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.3-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

My environment vars have: JAVA_HOME=c:progra~1javajdk1.6.0_11. I downloaded I unziped it in V:AndroidInstall

When I go to the V:androindinstallandroid-sdk-windows> and type "SDK Install.exe" nothing happens...If I go this from graph

When I do this from a graphical file viewer I get a quick flash that looks like a command line window and nothing....

When I try to run android list targets from the tool directory I get:

Error: Error parsing the sdk.
Error: V:androindinstallandroid-sdk-windowsplatforms is missing.
Error: Unable to parse SDK content.

So the basic install setup is not happening.

Additional clues:

I have a G1 and Android 1.0 was running on this machine. (Almost a year ago) I've updated my G1 to 1.6 so I thought I'd update my SDK before starting new development.

When I tried to upgrade it tried and then died as the "directory was in use"
So I cleaned out all the android directories, rebooted and redownloaded everythign from scratch.
Now it won't run at all.

I've clearly got something in an unhappy state, but I've cleaned up all the directories and no remanants seem to be running I've rebooted....

Android :: SAXParser Fails On Some RSS Feeds

Feb 28, 2009

I'm using the SAX parser to read some RSS feeds and have found a problem. Some feeds, for example CNN Money Top Stories, have embedded some characters in their content, i.e. the copyright symbol. Well, that's not valid XML and the SAX Parser fails with an exception "invalid token". The only help I have seen given is to fix the XML at the source and that's not an option obviously. So, I can think of 2 options and they both stink:

(a) read the content first, scrub it, and then pass it to the parser.
(b) Use DOM instead of SAX.

What I *want* to do is make the parser a little more forgiving and just accept or discard/ignore the bad text. I'm not have any luck with setErrorHandler. My error handler does not get called.

Android :: GeoCoding Fails After SDK Upgrade To 8

Sep 24, 2010

I recently upgraded my SDK from 7 to 8. One of my applications uses Google GeoCoding, specifically the Geocoder object. After the upgrade, when I call the getFromLocation method, it doesn't return any addresses and I see a message in the logcat to the effect that GLS failed with status 20. My Google Maps API key is working fine because I'm seeing the map tiles, but GeoCoding is broken. It works fine if I run a previous (SDK 7) build of my app.

Android :: Market Update Fails

Android :: Mkdir() Fails When Min Sdk Version Is 4

Sep 11, 2010

The following code works when I either have no min sdk version specified in the app manifest or if it's 5 or greater. But if I set the min sdk level to 4 (Android 1.6) , it fails to create a subdirectory in the sdcard.

There is no error. mkdir() or mkdirs() just returns false.


Am I doing something wrong here? Or is this a bug? I'd prefer not to set the target to 2.1 and min version to 1.6. But right now, I have to set it to 2.0 for it to work.

Android : ContentProvider Fails On Insert

Jul 30, 2010

I am brand new to developing for android and have hit something of a stumbling block that I cant seem to get around.

Using the NotePad example, I have created my own ContentProvider to serve up data from a database that I will eventually host on a webserver. But that is lightyears away from where I am right now.

Just testing my ContentProvider has caused a bit of a headache that I cant solve. For some reason, when the provider calls SQLiteDatabase db = mOpenHelper.getWritableDatabase(); I get a null pointer exception.

Code Follows:

Android :: APK Installation Fails / Package Conflict

Mar 24, 2009

I'm testing an app I'm developing and asked a friend to install on their device. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to help me out so I put the .apk up on my website for them to download to the phone (rather than making them download the SDK and use adb to install). The install of the downloaded .apk fails, complaining of a package conflict.

I have since gotten my hands on the phone briefly and I verified that:
* they have selected "allow unsigned apps" in settings
* there is no package with the same (or similar) name in data/data * installing via adb works with not a peep
* when I download the .apk to my phone the app installs fine.
It would be really nice to make it as easy as possible to distribute to people who might be willing to do me the favor of testing.

Android :: Fails To Connect With AP / Get An Auto IP Address?

Mar 11, 2009

I tried connect to AP(DHCP componet is disabled) with Google dev phone 1. It fails to connect to that AP. Can't get a ip address from AP. I hoped the dev phone successfully connect to the AP, and assign own auto-ip by itself(169.254.xx.xx). But It didn't happened. I think it must be abnormal case. Is there any special way to get an Auto IP address?

Android :: AndroidTestCase Fails With Dependency On Third Project

Aug 4, 2010

I have a and Android project and its test project. I can run tests successfully in the emulator. As the Android project has dependencies on a third library project, I want to use classes of the third project in the test cases too. For this, I need to add a dependency from the test project to the third project as well. Compile-time this works, but when I do a remote run of my AndroidTestCase, all tests fail. For each test, I get a NoClassDefFoundError, but not for third project classes, but for a class in the Android project itself!

Android :: Multipart File Post Fails

Jul 13, 2009

I have a class that implements a multipart file upload. The code works on every java client I've tried it on but does not work on Android, *and* it's the only HTTP request code in my Android app that doesn't play nice with my back end service. I've looked through the posts to see if other are having similar issues but so far have only found posts like this , which are nearly the same as mine. T The symtoms I'm seeing are that the connection responseCode is "-1" & no entries show up in the Apache access or error logs. It seems as if the request is never making it off of the android platform. The code gets right through the connection writes in the debugger with no errors, but hangs on the connection read, times out and then returns with -1. Behavior is same for real phone and emulator. As I mentioned, this code is in use elsewhere and works fine.

Does anyone know of any gotchas one needs to look out for when posting a multipart file in Android? Anything about doing a POST or a POST w/ data on Android?

I'm including the code/class below so you can see what I'm up to.

Android :: ADT Plugin For Eclipse Installation Fails

Android :: LinearLayout Stack Overflow Fails On 1.5 - Ok On 1.6?

Nov 8, 2009

I'm trying to make a horizontal layout with two TextViews, one should take up 40% of available width, the other 60%. This works unless the text is longer than available space, then a stack overflow exception is thrown. Pasting this into an empty 1.5 project xml file should cause it (though this seems to work ok on 1.6+):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android=" android" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:orientation="horizontal" android:weightSum="100" >

<TextView android:layout_width="0dip" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_weight="40" android:text="Some really long sentence AAAAA" android:singleLine="true" />

<TextView android:layout_width="0dip" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_weight="60" android:text="Some really long sentence BBBBB" android:singleLine="true" /> </LinearLayout>
Is there some other way to do this? I need to just break a row up into these separate columns with specific widths. I'm ok with the text just getting truncated on overflow,

Motorola :: Android AudioRecord Fails To Initialize

Nov 12, 2010

I've been having an issue with using AudioRecord for Android. I've read as much as I can find online about it, but I cannot seem to get a good initialization. I have tried the Android 2.2 emulator, 1.5 emulator and my phone, an HTC Incredible running Froyo. The emulators and my phone fail initialization. I've tried sampling rates of 8000, 11025, and 44100, formats of CHANNEL_IN_MONO/STEREO and CHANNEL_CONFIGURATION_MONO/STEREO, 8bit and 16bit encoding (8 bit makes the getMinBufferSize fail), and Audio Source of MIC and DEFAULT. All result in the variable test becoming 0 after running a get state(failed initialization). It seems from everything I've read that this should correctly initialize the object. I have played around with the multiplier on buflen, to have it range from 512 (the result of the function) to 102400 because I had heard that HTC devices require something above 8192. For testing my problem I made a new, small project that recreates my problem as simply as possible. I pull out the constants needed into local ints then run the constructor and access the getState method for checking if it worked. Code...

Android :: Mkdirs() On Sdcard Fails Silently

Android :: Market Licensing Intermittently Fails

Oct 26, 2010

I included the Android Market licensing (LVL) in my application and is currently using it to block invalid users. However users are emailing me that they are legit and include proof that they indeed bought the application. In looking at the errors generated during authentication, I get something along the line of "failed to reach server 505 error" which basically means that the Android Market server isn't responding and authenticating the users correctly.

In my personal experience when I encountered this once in my testing (I was hoping it was unique but it's not), I had to wait 30 mins before it finally worked. My phone was using wireless and clearly had no network issues. Ultimately the Android Market server is glitch and faulty (which is nothing new) and was just not responding and authenticating for around 30 mins. This leads to an extremely crappy experience for my users.

Other than dropping using this licensing scheme, I don't know what else to do. Android market connection is just too faulty for everyday usage. Do other developers have a better experience? Others using LVL at all? Others with similar experience?

Android :: Reflection Fails On Large Class / What To Do?

Jun 15, 2009

Does dalvik have any limitation it puts on classfiles, mainly size related? In groovy we have a huge class thats need to be able to be reflected upon, but it silently fails. IE theres no error during build(dex) or load time but calls to the reflective methods throws a no such method exception. This file is above 13000 lines of code and contains a vast number of methods so size limitations seems probable, or are there any other ways reflection can fail for a normal java class? Oh, and cutting the file down in size made it work but is not optimal since it contains all of groovy's utility methods.
