Android :: Application Object Life Cycle

Sep 30, 2009

When I start my application I prompt the user for the password and use it to instantiate my data adapter object that I will need throughout the application. So I store it in Application object. My activity A prompts user for pwd, instantiates data adapter, sticks it to Application object and later starts activity B which in turn starts the built int gallery activity. When fooling around with gallery and capturing pictures for some time coming back to activity B I discover that Application.myDataAdapter is null. I found out that during me playing with camera the Application.onTerminate() method was called. So it seems like Android killed my process and when B was supposed to become visible it started a process again jumping directly to activity B bypassing A? Is that how it works? Should I then never assume that Application.myField will survive? and init it not only when A is started but whenever I discover it is null?

Android :: Life Cycle - ListActivity

Aug 18, 2010

When my ListView activity loads it creates the Adapter which fills the screen as it should do. Is there an event or way to find out when the Adapter has finished getting enough data to fill the screen. I want to show a spinner the first time the Activity loads and have it go away once the screen has its first load of data from the Adapter.

Android :: The Life Cycle Of Static

Mar 7, 2010

When starting a new Activity, I want to pass a complex object and do so by using this approach:

MyActivity.COMPLEX_OBJ = myComplexObj; // which is definitely NOT NULL! Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setClass(this, MyActivity.class); startActivity(intent);

and then in MyActivity:

@Override public void onCreate(Bundle bundle) { if (COMPLEX_OBJ == null) { // report to Flurry ... } ...

Android :: Can't Grok Activity Life Cycle

Jun 6, 2010

I am having a really hard time grokking the Activity life cycle concept. The main issue is with onStop() and onDestory() not being guaranteed to be called before the process is killed. I though I had it figured out when I saw that the system calls onSaveInstanceState() when it's shutting down the activity to claim some memory. Thing is that the docs says onSaveInstanceState() will be called before onPause() but how does the system know at this point whether the activity will be killed by the system or the user?

Here is a use case:

1) My activity starts up and is running. 2) At some point I want to show a web page so I use an Intent to start an activity. 3) The web browser covers my app/activity so I would expect onPause() to be called followed by onStop(). At this point it's my understanding that all bets are off and I can be killed at any point without be called. 4) Since the system has enough memory onSaveInstance() doesn't get called. 5) The user presses home and decides to open some app which requires a lot of memory. 6) System wants more memory and decides to kill my app but I am already stopped (onPause() has been called).

Android :: Understanding ContentObserver Life Cycle

May 9, 2010

The core of this Widget is an AppWidgetProvider which registers a ContentObserver to the CallLog content URI. This means that my widget is updated every time a call (incoming, outgoing, missed) is recorded. This works fine for a while, until *something happens* and my ContentObserver stops getting called (no error message seen in trace). I would rather that this ContentObserver persisted until the user removes the Widget.

I am guessing that my JVM has been destroyed (due to low memory?), ContentObserver garbage collected and/or ContentObserver unregistered (or just pointing to nothing), but I don't know how to debug this without restarting my code (and thereby re-registering). I can hide this bug by periodically re-registering my Content provider, but I would rather understand the cause and have a more optimal solution..............

Android :: Managing Service Life Cycle Killed Due To Low Memory

Aug 25, 2009

I have a service that polls for data. To indicate this to the user I have a persistent notification in the statusbar. In some cases when the device goes low on memory it destroys the service but OnDestroy is not called. Later when there is available memory OnCreate is called. Is this normal behavior? I had hoped that OnDestroy would be called to I could remove the notification in the statusbar. Now the user thinks that the service is still running, while it has been stopped by the OS.

In order to restart the polling how do I know that the OnCreate is really a restart event and not first time creation of the service? I thought about checking for the presence of the notification in the statusbar, but I couldn't find a API to check if a notification was showing or not. I have not tried "SetForeground" on the service, since the service isn't that important to the user, but maybe that would minimize the problem.

Android :: Activity Life Cycle - Serialization Taking Too Long

Jul 27, 2009

Finally after many days of getting StackOverflowError, I've tracked down the issue and fixed it, only to find that my game's serialization takes about 5 -10 seconds on the emulator and most likely around that in the target. So far my the lifecycle of my game is as follows

onCreate - check if serialization file exists, if it does, de- serializes it. (~ 5-10 seconds) onPause - if the game is not complete, then serialize it (~ 5-10 seconds) I remember reading somewhere that another activity's onResume will NOT get called UNTIL the previous activity's onPause has ended. So I am worried that my game is delaying another activity that wants to start from doing so i.e like a phone call etc. I think speeding up the serialization is not going to be feasible, so any ideas on what I can do? Can I serialize in the onDestroy instead of the onPause? I read that the onPause is the only safest place to store the state.

Android :: Handle Activity Life Cycle Involving Sockets?

May 30, 2010

I have an Android activity which in turn starts a thread. In the thread I open a persistent TCP socket connection. When the socket connects to the server dynamic data is downloaded. The thread sends messages using Handler-class to the activity when data has been received. Now if the user happens to switch from portrait to landscape mode the activity gets an onDestroy call. At this moment I close the socket and stop the thread. When Android has switched landscape mode it calls onCreate yet again and I have to do a socket re-connect. Also, all of the data the activity received needs to be downloaded once more because the server does not have the ability to know what has been sent before, i.e. there is no "resume" feature.

Thus the problem is that there is alot of data which is resent all the time when landscape mode is changed. What are my options here? Should I create a service which handles the socket traffic towards the server thus I always got all the data which the server has sent in the service. Or should I disable landscape mode all together perhaps? Or would my best bet be to rewrite my server which is a VERY BIG job

Android :: Out Of Memory Error On Large Bitmaps And Activity Life Cycle

Jul 24, 2010

I have a scrollable map app which for now has a huge bitmap. It loads fine on startup, but when it looses foreground status and the user brings it backs again im getting an out of memory error. In onPause it trashes the bitmap using recycle, and marks it as null. The onResume checks to see if map==null and will load the bitmap back again, which is crashing the program despite me recycling the bitmap...Here are some bits of code. All of the other references to Bitmap map first check if it is null before loading/drawing..............

Android : Convert Object To Object

Feb 18, 2009

I am trying to get a FileInputStream object on an image that the user selects from the picture gallery.

This is the android URI returned by android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.INTERNAL_CONTENT_URI content://media/external/images/media/3

When I try to construct a java URI object from this object, I get an IllegalArgumentException with the exception description Expected file scheme in URI: content://media/external/images/media/3 whereas the android URI shows the scheme as content

Never found a solution for the original question. But if you want the byte stream of an image in the pictures gallery, this piece of code will do that.

Android :: App Causing Crash/reboot Cycle

May 20, 2010

So I have 2 reports now of my app causing a crash/reboot cycle the user can't always break from. I cannot reproduce this on my phone, and I am wondering what might be causing something like this? Would running out of memory or something cause this? Because I can't reproduce it, I can't look at the logs or anything.

Has anyone experiences anything similar? For reference, my app runs a foreground service which utilizes the AlarmManager. It starts automatically on boot_completed (which is probably why the cycle happens). One of the users who reported this, said it only happened when they plugged their phone into a PC.

HTC Desire :: Internal Memory - Battery Life - Apple Applications - Average Size Of Application?

Aug 27, 2010

I want to buy the HTC Desire or the Samsung Galaxy S. At the moment I prefer the HTC Desire. It's smaller, feels better and has flash which the Samsung lacks. But when I read the fact that the HTC Desire is very limited in internal memory for installing apps and the fact that you can't transfer a lot of apps to your sd card with the help of the froyo 2.2 update got me thinking again about which phone I should pick. I don't want to buy the phone and later regret that I don't have enough space for apps. That's not the only thing that is bothering me. So I want to ask a few questions.

1: What is the average number of apps you can install on the internal memory (so without SD card) of the HTC Desire if you installed update 2.2?
2: Let's say I use internet 2 hours a day, watch movies, listen to music 2 hours a day and also call people 1 hour and send a few text messages. If I do this everyday will I have to charge my battery everyday or will it last longer?
3: Can you install apple apps on HTC desire?
4: What is the average size of an application?
