Android :: Books For Web Application Architecture?

Nov 12, 2009

I'm scoping a new software project and haven't had much experience with software development. This is a multipart question.

What are some recommended books for web application architecture?
We are basically looking to develop several front end applications (mobile and websites) that can query a central application pool that'll hit our backend database to retrieve the data. Is there a name for this kind of architecture?

Android :: Application Architecture - What Is Suggested Model?

Jul 23, 2010

In the same way a web or desktop app might have 3 or n tiers - UI, Business, Data for example - what is the suggested structure for an Android application? How do you group classes together, what layers do you have etc.? I'm just starting Androi dev (an internet based app that must respond to incoming notifications) and have no real feel for the structure I'm aiming at.

Jan 27, 2014

I have a problem on my Asus ME301T tablet with the Play Books app (I'm running android 4.2). Regular text based books work just fine, however, comic books show as blank pages. Sometimes it will load a few pages if I rotate the screen a few times.

Android :: Organizer Application For Keeping Track Of Books?

Oct 13, 2010

Anyone know of a simple organizer app to keep track of books that you've read? I used to have a group in my contacts called strangely "books" on my BB storm. In the notes section I could keep an unlimited amount of information. Now on my Fascinate the notes section is limited and unusable for my needs.

General :: Compile Android On ARM Architecture?

Apr 27, 2013

getting a dev board for use as a mini pc. Wondering can you compile android on arm hardware or only on x86 hardware. If you can compile android on arm I will get a high end quad core dev board, if not will just go for a mid range dual core board. Thought it would be a fun project to have an auto android builder along with file and print server. Yes I know it will be slow to compile.

Android :: How Does PackageManager Detect What Architecture APK Targets?

Aug 11, 2010

i'm currently trying to specifically target ARMv7 custom hardware and I'm facing issues when trying to install the APK. When I try doing "adb install app.apk" Logcat informs me that: W/PackageManager( 1062): Native ABI mismatch from package file And does not install the APK. With searching I was able to trace down that the problem might have something to do with the architectures not matching on the APK and the platform. Is this it? How does the PackageManager find out the architecture from the APK file? I'm guessing it's not trying to execute the binary or anything, it just checks the files meta data? If so, is there a place in the APK where this information is located? Or am I completely hitting blank here and I should look somewhere else?

Android : Live Wallpaper Architecture Run In Same Process As Launcher?

Apr 26, 2010

Does the Live Wallpaper run in the same process as the Launcher? I looked through the Launcher code and cannot really figure out where the wallpaper "layer" fits in. I am looking at this with the lens of memory consumption and safeguards that the Launcher has in place against a bloated Live Wallpaper.

Android :: Android OpenGL Game - App Architecture / Threading Logic

Apr 8, 2010

Surprisingly, I don't seem to have issues with the OpenGL side of things (which is very unusual), but my problems stem from getting a clear idea for app architecture and a few other problems. Right now, most tutorials on the net just describe the render portion. I know that when I create a GLSurfaceView and hook a Renderer into it, it uses it's own thread for rendering.

I want to do logic operations and other gameplay stuff (like moving characters and whatnot) in it's own thread as well. Can anyone explain a good approach to this? I'm guessing the two threads will have to be synchronized (do logic, render, repeat), and limited based on time so that it performs smoothly across different devices.

HTC EVO 4G :: How To Get Library Books On Android?

Jun 21, 2010

New to Android; very grateful for the help! I tried searching the web and other threads but the words "free", "ebook" and "library" return thousands of results that don't help. Supposedly at my library you can get books in ebook form. The website says they are compatible with my PC, the Nook and the Sony devices. Is there a way to read these on the Android and if so, how is that accomplished? Also, I read that you can read Google books on Android phones, but when I got to Opera on my phone and go to and click on a book nothing happens.

Android :: Would You Suggest Any Other Books Than These Two For Developer

May 19, 2010

I am not allowed to post more than one hyperlink. But Amazon carries this book as well. I am picking these two books because of another popular thread saying I should have an Android book and a java reference but no one mentioned a book for either. I figured I'd go with the highest rated in for each of those criteria.I didn't know if I could ask a question in the same thread about what books so I figured it was better to start a new one. Code...

Android :: Java For Beginners Books?

Sep 22, 2010

I've been looking into Android development, and while I understand the concepts, all of the Java stuff goes right over my head. XML is easy to pick up on, but I quickly found out that advanced Android development is simply not possible without a good understanding of Java. I looked at this book and it seems pretty good: Is this good material for a true beginner, or will it be a little too advanced? I need something that will start out very slowly and explain the concepts, ideas and functions clearly. The last thing I want is a book that's incredibly complex and hard on a beginner. I have absolutely NO knowledge of Java or any coding, so I need to start with the basics. Is Android Java a lot different than regular Java? I know there are some differences, but if I studied regular Java could I quickly relate that to Android? I wouldn't want to read a Java book then get back into Android and be lost due to the changes. With this in mind please recommend me some books. I'm very enthusiastic about Android and have brilliant ideas for applications. I just need the prerequisites for Android before I can go full force.

Android :: Google Books Search

Feb 9, 2009

I didn't see this posted anywhere here and thought it was cool. For those of you that like to read. (I totally copy and pasted this from the Tmobile forum.)Google has launched a mobile version of its Book Search application which gives Android and iPhone users access to over 1.5 million out of copyright texts from authors including Austen, Dickens and Shakespeare. Google has optimised the texts for iPhone and Android handsets, and users will need an internet connection to view them. The texts are separated under handy categories including General Fiction and Mystery, and the service keeps a list of recently viewed eBooks and allows you to bookmark your page.

I'm using Meridian to listen to audio books, but I would sure love to find a player that let's me choose when to start listening. Meridian remembers where I left off in a book, but one slight bump and it goes back to zero. Sure would be nice to have it start at "minute 210" or wherever.

General :: How To Convert And Sync Books To Kindle Using Android Tablet

It seems amazon really makes things a little complicated trying to concert PDF files into ePub files and sync with the default kindle app. I cannot get kindle to recognize the books I converted for anything. I downloaded file explorer and I'm moving it into the kindle app and into the amazon android folder and no luck. Does converted PDFs to other formats know which folder it's supposed to go into?

General :: Android Market Missing Books And Movies Section

Jul 18, 2012

I'm running an SGS2 with CM9 (always up to the latest nightly).

I noticed today then when trying to open the Play store, it takes me directly to the Apps section and doesn't let me choose between the normal Apps, Movies and Books sections that i could before (i'm in the UK so no music option ever existed).

If i go to Play Book or Play Movies and press the market button, same happens, it just takes me to the apps secions.

I've tried clearing data on all google play related apps and uninstalling the google play updates and rebooting etc but still, everytime it takes me directly to the apps section and doesn't let me access any other section...

Android : Re-Teaching Myself To Program - Seeking Object Oriented Design Books

Oct 13, 2010

Five years ago I used to program in SAS. Since then I've been doing software QA of various types. Mostly manual (video games + web apps) testing with a tiny bit of automation.

I'd really like to shift careers back into programming. Specifically the Android platform has caught my attention. These are the books I've been reading and working through.

Learning Java, Third Edition - O'Reilly
Beginning Android 2 - Mark Murphy
Hello, Android - Ed Burnette

However, I think I need something that looks at programming from a less language dependent standpoint. Something that takes a bird's eye view if that makes sense.

It's very easy to see how particular functions work, but I'm looking to get a better sense of how all the pieces fit together. How does one split up an app into individual classes and packages? Do I have a method in main that shuffles my deck of cards (object) or does the class deck of cards have a method I can call to shuffle itself?

I think I'm looking for a book on object oriented design? I've also been working through the tutorials and examples at and also in the three books I've been reading so far. Maybe I just need to spend more time coding though?
