Android : Need Self-Updating Package?

Feb 25, 2009

I'm looking for ideas on how to have a package that is not distributed through the Android Market (it's in closed Beta) upgrade itself.

I had hoped to download the .apk file from my web server and then use PackageManager.installPackage(), but that requires the INSTALL_PACKAGES permission, which is apparently not available to packages not installed in /system/app.

Best idea I have now is to launch an Intent to download the .apk (via web browser), but that would require the user to then manually install the package, which is unkind.

Android :: Package Manager Get Size Of An Installed Package?

Feb 12, 2009

i work on custom Application Manager and try to get the disk usage of installed package. So PackageManager.getpackageSizeInfo was removed from SDK on 0.9->1.0 update android.content.pm. PackageStats(String pkgName)(cacheSize, codeSize, dataSize) returns always "0" Size of phys. file (java.io.File) in "/data/app" seems wrong/not completely. Has anybody any solution to get the total disc space used by an installed package?

Android :: Can't Access Package Private Fields In Android.widget Package?

Oct 7, 2010

I'm attempting to override an Android View class to tweak the functionality just slightly. But I need to modify a field that does not have a setter method. I've placed the subclass in a package called android.widget. Why can't I access any of the package-private member fields? I notice that the compiler says they "cannot be resolved," rather than not being accessible. Does this have something to do with how Android.jar is built?

Motorola Droid X :: Widgets Not Updating / Stop Updating

Jul 24, 2010

Anyone having trouble with widgets stop updating? Like my clock/calendar/weather/news/pretty much any widget i have stops updating after an hour. So i look at my clock widget two hours later and it is an hour behind. Happens to ALL my widgets.Even the quick turn on/off wifi,bt,gps and such. They just stop updating/showing animation.I have ADW launcher installed. I am wondering if it is that. I do not really want to remove it as i hate the stock 3 button interface at the bottom (why do i need a contacts and phone, just use the phone to look thru contacts, wasted space IMO) and am quite keen on keeping the 5 button.Any ideas? If i power off the phone and turn it back on it's fine again for about an hour. SOmetimes randomly thru the day it will start updating and working fine again then randomly stop again.

Android :: SKD 1.6 No Available Package For API 1

Sep 16, 2009

I have installed the new SDK 1.6r1 on Windows and I realise that 1.6 does not included the older APIs so ran the android.bat tool to download them. The "available packages" only offer me SDK Platform Android 1.1 API 2; I was also hoping to download 1.0 API 1 as I am developing an application that only needs very basic functionality and I would like to be compatible with as many devices as possible.

Android :: ADC 2 Package Name After Competition Is Over

Aug 27, 2009

Just wanted to know, if we participate in ADC2 will we be required to use a different package name (to the ADC one) for our app *after* the competition is over? Reason for this is that I'm wondering whether I should assign a separate package name now for ADC and keep my standard one for later.

Android :: Certificates From Package

Mar 23, 2009

I'm looking for a way to get the certificates from a package that are used to sign it. Using the PackageInfo class it is possible to get the signatures. But what can I do with signatures if I don't get the public keys to verify these.

The next question I have where does the PackageInstaller verify the signed APK file? The PackageParser class loads the APK file into a JarFile object but does this automatically verify the signature?

Android :: Installed App Package Name?

Nov 1, 2010

does anyone know how you can find the package name for a particular app already installed on your handset? They usually go like: com.example.prototype(Where the folder prototype cotains the runnable files)Trying to use the intent function to launch an app within an app.Was told putting this code in the onclicklistener method for the button would allow this, yet to test it successfully. I reckon it works, just need to figure out package name of the app I wanna launch.Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN);i.addCategory( Intent.CATEGORY_LAUNCHER); i.setPackage("com.otherapp.package"); startActivity(i);Want to press a button, to launch the "com.otherapp.package"

Android :: Package An XML File With App

May 14, 2010

I am trying to put an XML file containing over 1,000 different fish into my app so that I can read this file, create an Array and attach that to the AutoCompleteTextView. I first tried to create a string-array in a resource file but apparently the array was to large and would never actually load anything after a certain number of values. So want I want to do is add that XML file to a place in my app that I can access it and read from it. Whenever I try to bring the XML file in I get all these errors in Eclipse. So how do I add this file and how do I reference it later in order to access it? I could just store it online and access it that way but I think it is a little bit of a waste to have to access the net for that if I can instead just add it to my package setup someplace.

Android :: How To Compile The Com .sdk Package?

Aug 18, 2010

I am working on windows with JDK, Android SDK and eclipse set successfully. I download the com.android.sdk package from: http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/packages/apps/Stk.git;a=summary

But when I import the project to the eclipse, errors happen everywhere. Mostly is about the com.android.internal.telephony.gsm.stk.something cannot be imported. I googled to find the reason. It only says because of the these packages is internal package and cannot import with standard SDK. So the question is: How can I compile this project? Should I make a linux environment and get the whole android source code to do this?

Android : Way To Get Two Applications In Same Package

Aug 27, 2009

What I am trying to do is install two applications, packaged from the same code, but with different names and different strings.xml files.

I created the two apk files, however, when trying to install the second application, it fails because it says it's already installed. From what I can tell, it thinks the two applications are the same, my guess is because of the package attribute in the manifest. I modified the manifest with a different package name, but R is generated based on that package name and that affects the rest of the code.

So, my question is this: What's the process I should be using to install two applications using the same code, but with different names and different strings.xml files?

Android :: Java Package Convention

Sep 24, 2010

I'm developing an Android project which currently has 4 packages:

com.myapp.app.activities
com.myapp.app.db
com.myapp.app.ws
com.myapp.app.utils

Would I be able to create an additional package which is just com.myapp.app. Eclipse isn't letting me create this package. It tells me a package with this name already exists. If I start a new project and create a package called "com.testing.app" and then create a new package called "com.testing.app.activities" afterward, it works fine.

For Android developers: What I'm wanting to do is extend the Application class and have it in a separate package. Suppose com.myapp.app can't be used, what's a good name for this new package?
