Android :: How To Use Http Connections Like TCP Socket In Java

Mar 9, 2010

may be asking a bit much here but I have faith in the community so it's worth trying. I'm making a game and I'm trying to pick the connection type to use for communicating between a Java mobile client and a Java server backend.Socket programing in Java is easy - there's a lovely tutorial on the subject and two way communication is trivial.Trouble is that on a mobile client (Android) it's not guaranteed that the cellular network will let you make TCP connections. That makes me think using an HTTP connection is the way to go. HTTP connections are request based but I need a way to push notifications from the server to the client. It seems the solution to this problem is to use 'long polling' I have read a bit about it but have yet to see a simple example for what I'm trying to achieve.Again I might be asking a lot but this seems like a fairly common problem, is there a library or framework I can import / use to wrap a Http connection and provide a two way long standing connection (That reconnects automatically etc). I read a bit about cometD but it doesn't seem to have a Java library that I can just pick up.The communication I need is not heavy, not constant two way streams of data just occasional updates either way to keep the game going.

General :: How To Increase Concurrent HTTP Connections

Mar 3, 2013

My company is importing some Android-based TV boxes from China, and we're experiencing a strange bug with some apps we are developing to run on them. I'm trying to find a specific solution that I can tell them to implement in a firmware upgrade, but I am not sure where to look.

In some apps (especially Adobe AIR-based ones), there seems to be a limit to concurrent HTTP requests to a web server. On an earlier ICS 4.0.4 firmware for these devices, this did not cause any problems. But they recently released a JB 4.1.1 firmware, and this problem occurs.

Let's say an app requests 20 items by HTTP from a web server (XML files, PNG or JPG images). What will happen is about 2/3 of these will be sent back, and the rest just remains blank, as if in a perpetual waiting status.

Looking at the web server's logs, there is no requests at all for these missing items.

And, it's totally random. If you re-launch the app, the missing items will be different ones.

So, I am guessing the app can only request so many things at the same time. Any system property that could be adjusted to solve this?

BTW I am unable to replicate this bug on any other device. The TV boxes in question are based on Rockchip 3066 SoC's

Android :: How To Develop A Soft Keyboard - HTTP Connections To Synchronize Keyboard Data With A Cloud DB And Other Phones

Aug 13, 2010

I would like to play around with some ideas and develop a soft keyboard for Android to replace the default one.

Is there any general information about soft keyboard development for Android out there?

Any best practices or guidelines?

Can I do with my keyboard application pretty much anything I could do with a normal Android application?
Can I do HTTP connections to synchronize keyboard data with a cloud DB and other phones I have?
Can I open other windows/screens from a key press, e.g. to display a custom input interface different to a normal QWERTY one. If that doesn't work, can I use a pop-up dialog instead?

Android :: Way To Make HTTP Connection Using GSM Network?

Sep 29, 2010

I need to make HTTP request on Android using GSM connection, not Wifi. My current solution is to disconnect from all wi-fi connections and perform a request. Is there any better solution? I could not find any relevant methods in the API (I looked in package org.apache.http, but it seems it is completely unaware of what type of connection should be used).

Android :: Make An Http Request Using Cookies On Droid?

Mar 24, 2009

I'd like to make an http request to a remote server while properly handling cookies (eg. storing cookies sent by the server, and sending those cookies when I make subsequent requests). It'd be nice to preserve any and all cookies, but really the only one I care about is the session cookie.

With, it appears that the preferred way to do this is using (abstract base class) and (concrete implementation). Android has, but it does not seem to have

I could code it all by hand by inspecting http headers, but it seems like there must be an easier way.

What is the proper way to make http requests on Android while preserving cookies?

General :: How To Make Android Apps To Use HTTP Proxy

Nov 30, 2011

When I connect to the student's wifi network, it requiers to configure the proxy with authentification. Well I'm fine with that, and the browser works all right, but all of the apps which require internet access aren't working. I also noticed, that when I'm configuring the proxy in the settings, it actually says that the HTTP proxy will be used by the browser, but not by some of the apps (in my case none of the apps work, including the pre-installed apps like android market, youtube or google maps).

So my question is that is there any way to make the apps work with the HTTP proxy? I should say that I found this thread on this forum:


but I had trouble understanding it. Also if this matters, I'm using an Asus Eee Pad Transformer running android 3.2.1.

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?

Android :: Bluetooth Concurrent Connections

Sep 14, 2010

For the buzzer round, I was thinking of writing 2 app for android (we have a few handsets), one for the quiz master and the other for the contestants.The contestants will be connected to the quiz master through bluetooth.After reading the question, the quiz-master clicks a button in his/her app, the button in the contestant apps will be enabled for X seconds. As soon as a contestant clicks his/her button, the quiz master's app will flash the name of that contestant.Is it even possible to have multiple connections and accept concurrent (or multiplexed) messages from them in bluetooth (something similar to select() in unix/c)?If possible, where should I look for any examples? What kind of problems will I face trying to develop this (I know reliability is an issue here) and how to avoid them?

Android :: HttpsURLConnection And Intermittent Connections

Jan 31, 2010

I'm hoping someone could help me out with intermittent connections I'm getting using code with HttpsURLConnection.

The code I'm using is below:


The connection works the first time everytime when I use it to pull a json file. However, when I use the connection again to send a command, it always fails the first time. It then typically works if I send the
command quickly ( within 5 seconds), but fails if I wait a while. I don't think its a SSL issue because it connects the first time correctly, but I could be wrong here. I also tried many different
variations such as adding:


However, I had no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have some code that uses a network connection. I create a connection by calling openConnection() on a URL object. Is there any documentation that explains how this process works? Which access point is being used? When that access point becomes invalid, will it automatically switch to another accespoint? etc. I would like to use only WiFi access points and otherwise fail even tho 3G or GPRS could be available, is that possible?

Android :: App Design For Multiple Data Connections

Oct 18, 2010

I am working on developing an application that requires me to establish multiple client-server based connections. Connection can be of two types where the Android device can be a server or a client. I can have up to 6 - 8 connections. Once the connections are set-up they need to be running in the background and are not typically affected by UI actions.Since each connection can be blocking, I am wondering what is a good away to design this app. Should I have two services for handling the server and client connections? Each service could have a "connection manager" that can spawn new threads when necessary. Or does creating two services even help? I presume spawning new processed would not be good as they will be expensive. Is this correct? I would appreciate any suggestions. Also, if this use case is not typical please let me know if you need more information to make any recommendation.

Now what happen to the existing connection? is it simply disconnect? or it will keep going, only new connections will use wifi? In addition, what if I walk away from home, wifi lost signal and switch to 3g? It should be safe to guess the connection is dropped. For my application, do I need to handle the reconnection or there is a auto fall back solution.

Android :: Server Socket Accept() Not Accepting Connections

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to setup at ServerSocket on my Android phone, and send a char or int or anything from my computer. The code on the phone creates a ServerSocket and then blocks whilst waiting for a connection(plus some more bits if the socket is created. But I'm not getting this point, so left that out!)Basically, the phone is getting to accept, and the computer is not connecting. The xx.xx.xx.xx is the public IP of the phone I obtain programatically (and it matches up with checking on have set the INTERNET permission on the phone. I have also been able to do this in reverse (ServerSocket on pc, client on phone).

Android :: Best Practices For Snappy Mobile I / O On Slow Connections?

Aug 12, 2010

I have a mobile app, which is pretty data driven, though only through text and images. In the current version each click or touch requires pulling new data from the server (appache/php). With network delay this easily takes 1-2 seconds for the first content to appear, which is far too long. I have heard about and considered the following options, but are not sure if some of them might be counter productive, or if I have left something important out?

Download all data from the start, in a big bunch with a loading screen? Run a prefetching thread, predicting and downloading data the user might want, in the background? Keep the connection open to the server at all time? Load different parts of the data in different connections in parallel? (Similar to facebook) Use heavy data compression? A comprehensive article on the matter would also be a good answer.
