Android :: No Value Being Returned With Ksoap Calling Web Service

Jun 3, 2010

I have a .Net Web Service which returns a single integer value. When i call upon it from my application, no value is returned. Nothing at all really happens. I set up breakpoints and watched it's progress and it seems the problem is coming from when i get to this, envelope);
I have a hunch that my URL string is the problem. I've tried replacing the "localhost" in my URL string with my local and network ip with no luck. Whenever i replace the localhost with the ip in my browser i get Server Cannot Access or Unable to Connect pages. Does anyone know a solution to this problem?

Android :: Return ArrayList From .net Web Service To Droid App Using KSoap?

Jun 9, 2010

My web service is returning quite a bit of data, so i'm storing it in an arraylist and returning that to my application. I don't know whether or not this is the preferred method or not. When the arraylist is returned and displayed in my application, it also displays the arraylists "anyType" section. I'm new to this whole process so i'm sure i'm missing something somewhere or going about this incorrectly. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Android :: Web Service Recieves Null Parameters From Application Using Ksoap Method

Jun 15, 2010

I've seen topics discussing this but no one has seemed to post a solution. At the moment, I'm testing passing parameters to my .Net web service. When the parameters reach the web service it adds it with an additional string then returns it too my application; but all I'm returning is the string message, not the parameter I passed. Is there something wrong with my web service or my soap method?



Here is my simple .Net web service:

Android :: Service Restarted With All Unfinished Intents That Returned Start Status START_REDELIVER_INTENT?

Nov 1, 2010

Suppose you have a download service that downloads files asynchronously. For each download intent received it will put the URL of the file to download and the start ID into a job queue and return START_REDELIVER_INTENT. A worker thread then processes that list and calls stopSelf with the start ID it just processed. My question is: If the service's process gets killed and the service restarted, will the service receive all the intents (with the URLs) it hasn't called stopSelf on before it was killed or does the service receive the last intent only? It seems the API docs are ambiguous on this.

The docs say

"if this service's process is killed while it is started [...], then it will be scheduled for a restart and the last delivered Intent re- delivered to it again [...]", indicating that only the last intent gets redelivered (which would be terrible in this use case), but they also say "The service will [...] be re-started if it is not finished processing all Intents sent to it (and any such pending events will be delivered at the point of restart)."

Android :: Get Calling Context In Service

Aug 30, 2010

So I'm working on a service that will handle requests to send data to a socket.I've done socket programming in a service before, but only within the same application. I'd like this to just sit and do nothing until any application wants to give it data to send. That's all well and good.I have register an intent filter and the usual stuff and can process the data. But I want to process the data coming from different activities in different threads (subsequent calls from the same application will be computed on the same thread).Is there a way to get the calling package or app or whatever? I'd prefer not to require passing in an identifier as an extra to prevent spoofing. (It's not a serious security concern, it's just each application needs its data processed in the order that it's received.)

Android :: Calling Method From Service Immediately

Sep 3, 2010

I'm pretty sure that android services are going to be the end of me.I have almost no hair left after the last few days.At first I was having a heck of a time getting the service to bind on an onclick of a button, got that straightened out from help here yesterday. Now I actually want the service to bind in the onCreate() method of the activity. That part is no problem, works as intended.My service is actually a socket service to connect TCP sockets to a socket server that I wrote.If I put the call to the method from the bound service mBoundService.StartSocketServer() inside a button click, bingo, works great. But I need this to fire up immediately when the activity loads, so directly under my bindService() call within my onCreate() method of the activity.When I place the call to start the socket inside my onCreate() I get a force-close.

This method (StartSocketServer()) spawns a new thread then opens the socket on that thread to my remote machine.I'm guessing that the problem lies with the new thread generation before the activity fully loads not sure.LogCat is fairly cryptic here. It does say something about thread attach failed, then shows an uncaught handler exception that has "Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException" within it.Again, if I put this call to the method inside a button click, I"m in business, if it's in the onCreate() it fails. Is there some way inside an activity (presuming that my assumption is correct that it needs to fully load before spawning a new thread) to call the StartSocketServer() after it's loaded: ala body.onLoad() in html?

Android :: Service Dies Without Calling OnDestroy

Dec 15, 2009

A service is setup by an activity with startService(service_intent). This service is meant to run 24 hours a day. After some amount of time, 5 or 6 hours sometimes but its not predictable, the service is killed.In the database log, the destroyed message does not show up and the notification #1 is not cancelled. Android makes no attempt to restart the service. The database log will show the startup of the replacement service if I trigger it by visiting the activity. What can I do to keep this service running or at least get it restarted by android automatically?

Android :: Can Service Report Back To Calling Activity With Status

Jun 29, 2010

Is there a way that a Service can report back to the calling activity when the Service has reached a particular stage of processing? Consider a music player activity that initiates the actual music playing in the background as an Android Service. I want to detect and inform the Activity when the Service has reached the Mediaplayer's onPrepared. Is there a way that the Service can tell the calling Activity when the MediaPlayer's onPrepared is called, to let the Activity know that the audio is prepared and ready to play?I am basically looking to see if there is work around, rather than having a thread in the activity, pinging constantly to check if the Service has reached onPrepared.

Android :: Custom Namespace Using .Net Webservice And Ksoap

Jun 1, 2010

I am calling a web service which has the following request format.


Now when I call the web service I get the following error SoapFault - faultcode: 'a:DeserializationFailed' faultstring: 'The formatter threw an exception while trying to deserialize the message: There was an error while trying to deserialize parameter

The InnerException message was 'Error in line 1 position 463. Element ' DataContracts:InFields' contains data of the ' DataContracts:anyType' data contract. The deserializer has no knowledge of any type that maps to this contract.

Add the type corresponding to 'anyType' to the list of known types - for example, by using the KnownTypeAttribute attributre or by adding it to the list of known types passed to DataContractSerializer.'. Please see InnerException for more details.' faultactor: 'null' detail: org.kxml2.kdom.Node@43bcb040

The Request sent is has i:type="n0:anytype" in each tag which is creating an error in server side. How do T remove the attribute from the XML tag of the request XML for example <n0:ExServiceDataField i:type="n0:anyType"> should be as <n0:ExServiceDataField>

Android :: Binding A Ksoap Object To An ArrayList?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm working on an app that calls a web service, then the webservice returns an array list. My problem is I am having trouble getting the data into the ArrayList and then displaying in a ListView. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? I know for a fact the web service returns an ArrayList. Everything seems to be working fine, just no data in the ListView or the ArrayList.....donned on me that the data the webservice responds with is a complex type. I really think that's where I am getting hung up, but not sure how to correct it.

I finally figured out my webservice returns a JSON Array. Now getting that over to the ArrayList and/or ListView is the challenge. I have a feeling that once this project is done, it might make for a great tutorial or example...

Android :: Using Ksoap Over HTTPs To Request Data From Server?

Feb 11, 2010

I'm using ksoap over https to request data from a server. It works fine, but only every other time! Looking at the traffic with wire shark it seems that on every other request something goes wrong with the ssl traffic/handshake (data doesn't even get sent except for an fc-fault coming back). Doing the same requests using curl the server always responds fine and afaik the iPhone version of the program also doesn't seem to have any problems with the server.

Android :: How Can Check If Returned Location Is Reliable

Jan 4, 2010

I know how to get the calculated GPS position via getLastKnownLocation (). As tests show, this function really always returns the last known location, so it doesn't matter if there is a gps fix available.

How can i check if the returned location is reliable? I tried it with getAccurracy(), but this function even returns a accurracy although no gps fix is availavle (anymore). Is there a possibility to get gps dop values? Used SDK is 1.6.
