Android :: Conflicting Content Providers

Aug 26, 2010

Everything is working fine, I can access the provider. The problem is that I want to create a demo version of my app and I want it to share the same content provider so when the user install the full version, the data is kept in sync. Also, it should be possible to install only the full or the demo version. Therefore, I have to include my content provider in both.Now, when I try to install both apps error message, obviously because both AndroidManifest declare the same content provider.Is there a way to tell in the Manifest that this content provider should be used only if it doesn't already exists ? Or another workaround ?A solution would be that the full version migrate the data from a demo content provider to the full version content provider, but I would rather avoid that.

Android :: Switching Content Providers For Same Content URI

Aug 12, 2009

This may seem like a stupid question but I need to be sure. I was wondering if it was possible to pro-grammatically change the Content Provider used when making a query given a Content URI. The reason being I need to know if it's possible to force the Calendar/Contacts applications to read from a different database via a different Content Provider temporarily while my application is running, so that I can reuse those applications to display my own data. Since the Content URI s are hard coded in each of these applications the only way it might be possible is if we could somehow temporarily change the Content Provider used for a given URI. I know this probably isn't possible, I just need to show it isn't. Could someone confirm this can't be done?

Android :: How To Set Permission In Content Providers?

Sep 21, 2010

I have a doubt regarding content provider.My doubt is I create a app1 that creates Content Provider and in second application(app2) i am using app1's content provider methods(like insert, update etc). It's working fine but i want to set some permissions in app1, so that if any other app wants to use that provider it must have to get this permissions(<uses- permissions) then only it should be able to use providers.

Android :: Understanding Content Providers ?

Mar 1, 2010

I am having trouble understanding content providers in Android. Do you use intents to call content providers as well as managed queries?

Also, an activity has an intent filter. The intent filter has a element which has a mimeType attribute. How does Android know which content provider this mimetype is referring to?
The tag in the manifest just lists an authority but not the full content_uri. Further, the content_uri is typically defined in an encapsulated class that seems to only consist of constants but no methods, so I don't see how that links over to the content provider class.

Android :: Get A List Of Content Providers On A Device?

Jan 4, 2010

Is there a way to programmatically list all available content providers on a device? No real use case, I just thought it might be neat to see what apps I have installed on my phone that have exposed content providers.

Android :: Content Providers / Database Initialisation

Feb 18, 2009

I have a plethora of data which is currently stored in 1000 different very small text files, I want to store this data in an SQ Lite database as I feel that this will be more space efficient and hopefully time efficient as I presume a database query is faster than opening and parsing a text file (please stop me now if this isn't the case!). The data does not need to be available to other applications and will be used internally only. My first question is whether or not to create a content provider anyway, is there any benefit to this? My second question is where to initialize the database, is it possible to ship an application with a database included already populated? Do I have to populate it in the on Create method of the SQ Lite Open Helper subclass? If I have to include the 1000 text files and read, parse and insert the data at inst all time I have a feeling this would be slow. Is it possible for me to populate the database now, dump it to a single file and then bulk insert from the file in the on Create method?

Android :: Direct Database Access Instead Of Content Providers

Sep 2, 2010

Just found out that I don't need content providers if I don't need to share data with other applications. But since the examples I've seen all use content providers, I'm not sure how to proceed without them and populate activities with data derived from accessing my application's database directly.

Android :: How To Test Content Providers On Android?

Aug 1, 2009

I am trying to test my DB using Provider Test Case2<T>. I can see the test DB being created. As such I suppose, the tested content provider should use the test DB. But as soon as I try any calls against the Mock Content Resolver (or the one created with new Resolver With Content Provider From Sql), I get an Unsupported Operation Exception. This is documented for the Mock Content Resolver as normal behavior. As such I am a bit unsure on the purpose of the Provider Test Case2. How do you test your content providers?

Android :: ADC App Conflicting With Marketplace App

Sep 3, 2009

I just entered my app to ADC2 the other day.I hadn't realized before that it seems like we could have released the app in the marketplace after August 1st, which means I guess I missed out on a month of potential feedback, but there you go :-).Anyway, so I assume we are now free to upload our ADC submitted applications to the marketplace, which I tried to do today, but I encountered a problem.I got this message: "You have another application on Market with the same package name ( Go to that other application, and click upgrade." So it seems my ADC submission is blocking a release of this app.

General :: Conflicting Android OS

Feb 6, 2013

I just bought one of these cheap Chinese CECT Android phones (i9300 Samsung clone), which was advertised as running Android v4.0 (ICS). Looks good and works well.... but

When I go to SettingsAbout Phone it says it is running v4.0.3 which is fine.However, when I boot into recovery mode and select 'version' it says it is running Android Ver 2.3.6 (Gingerbread).Before I complain to the seller about false advertising, what is the true OS version of this phone, Gingerbread or ICS ? I would have thought that it is in fact running Gingerbread, but is their a quirt about this that I may be unaware of?

Android :: Conflicting Resource Id Of Two Different Project's

Oct 18, 2010

I have two different project A & B. Inside the project A I link the source from project B so activity from project A can start the activity from project B. I'm using Eclipse Galileo.The problem is, when I want to edit the value of a view in activity B, the resource id from both projects have some conflicts in it. So when I call findViewById() in activity B I got a view from the activity A instead.I've declared the activity B inside the AndroidManifest in project A. I've even tried to start the activity B as the entry point of the application but it didn't show anything at all. It's like the findViewById tried to search the view of project A only although I've specified the package name correctly.

HTC Desire :: Wi-fi And 3g Network Conflicting?

May 31, 2010

Bit random but I just noticed that my phone was displaying the icons for both 3g and wi-fi, rather than just wi-fi. Normally when there is a wi-fi signal the phone shuts down 3g.However, I could not connect to anything. I could turn off wi-fi and connect via 3g or turn of 3g and connect via wi-fi, but when both were on it seemed like both were trying to connect and getting confused.A reboot solved the issue. did I do something silly?

HTC EVO 4G :: Conflicting Root Info?

Jun 6, 2010

There's a lot of noobish posts/replies about rooting and EVO here, so I'm trying to fully grasp what is true and what is not.A lot of posts/replies indicate you lose all of your data/apps/settings but I'm beginning to think that this only happens with the toastcfh root but NOT the unrevoked root. Can someone (who has a clue and has done this) please confirm?The sticky says that the OTA will kill the Root.This seems to contradict what unrevoked is saying on Twitter. So will it clobber the unrevoked root or the toastcfh root (or both)? I find it hard to believe unrevoked is wrong about their own app/testing/rooting.Next a lot of folks say wifi-tethering is broken. First off, I believe it wasn't "working" unless you used the Sprint Mobile WiFi HotSpot and are paying for it. So when someone says "its broken" that leads me to believe rooting the EVO breaks the Sprint Mobile WiFi Hotspot, which I kind of doubt, but want to confirm. Sure it likely doesn't resolve the MAC/ARP issue for android-wifi-tether app, but I'm not trying to get something for free here, I'm already paying for Sprint's Mobile Hotspot, I just don't want to break it.

My last question is for the UNIX folks out there - Has anyone found an Apache or similar web server which is ported to Android, which I could load? What about SSHD? IMHO, there's no point in rooting if I can't run a web server or SSH daemon. I don't care to kill the Sprint bloatware (kind of like it) as I have already resolved my battery issues (see my other post).

HTC Incredible :: Still Conflicting Information About App Space In Reviews

Apr 19, 2010

A couple of the reviews refer to the app space and say that none of the 8gb is for apps and you are constrained to the rom. This makes no sense, based on the 768mb free storage showing up in snapshots of some of the reviews. Logic is taking a hit here:

1. 768mb shows free for storage

2. Internal media memory shows 6.6gb

3. If 8gb flash, about 7.8 should show free (not 6.6)

4. If apps are constrained to the 512mb rom (as reviews state), the OS and preinstalled apps would take up space, so 220mb or less would be free with Android 2.1 and the Sense UI

5. 768mb free on a 512mb rom is impossible- even excluding how much space the OS and preinstalled apps take.

Android : Location Providers In Droid?

Aug 10, 2010

My application requires current location of the user. For this I have implemented the code and I am able to get the current location. The code tries to get the best provider first and then fetches location information. The problem is that the current location is returned from NETWORK_PROVIDER if GPS_PROVIDER is disabled. If both NETWORK_PROVIDER and GPS_PROVIDER are enabled then the best provider will be GPS_PROVIDER and this takes too much time to get the current location.

So, is it alright if we set the location provider as NETWORK_PROVIDER only so that it will not matter whether GPS_PROVIDER is enabled or not.

Android : Get Location With Multiple Providers?

Feb 13, 2009

I want my app to be able to retrieve a fine location, but also to be able to get it's location as quick as possible. What I'm trying to implement is something like the way it works in maps, i.e. it gets a coarse location via network and then refines that location using GPS.

If I set the criteria to ACCUARCY_FINE it automatically tries to use GPS to get the location. The problem is that if a user is indoors then this may take several minutes, if it finds it at all. Is there an easy way to tell the manager to use network provider and then GPS, or will I have to do this myself? If so what's the best way to go about this? Will I need to thread it in some way?

I'm sorry if these questions have been answered already. I've found various location examples but none that seem to do what I'm asking.

Android :: Enable/disable GPS And Wifi Providers?

How do I enable/disable GPS and Wifi providers? I check to see if they are enabled by using this code:

If both are false, I'd like to turn enable the GPS provider and/or the Network provider so that the above checks would return true. Is this possible? If so, what permissions does it require?

Motorola Droid : Consider Switching Providers For Android?

Oct 21, 2009

I'm considering switching from T-mobile to verizon for this phone. I was this close to getting the motocliq but this device seems to be much better as long as the keyboard is functional since I'm not even a social networker. How many of you are considering switching carriers for this phone and do you think its worth it?

Is it true there's a 30 day buyer's remorse period on verizon so if I just get it and don't like it for whatever reason, I'm safe to remain with t-mobile and not be committed?
