Android :: Protect HTTP Request From Being Called By Others

Jun 18, 2010

I have an Android application from which I want to upload some data to a database on my web server. As the MySql java library has a size of about 5 mb, I don't want to include it with the application.So I'll make a HTTP request for a php script and send the data with the URL as parameters. How do I make sure that only I can call this? I don't want people to sniff up the URL and call it outside my application.

Android :: Performing A Http Request?

Apr 13, 2010

Could someone provide the basic code to use if I want to perform a http request on android to the address "address" with the string "message" ? Also I'd like to check the server response and perform some actions if the right conditions meet , but I ' m unsure of how and when the server send back the response . My guess is that the response is gotten in a blocking function, or in an asynchronous function . Could you provide code or information on this as well ?

Android :: Add Parameters To A HTTP GET Request?

Jun 2, 2010

I have a HTTP GET request that I am attempting to send. I tried adding the parameters to this request by first creating a BasicHttpParams object and adding the parameters to that object, then calling setParams( basicHttpParms ) on my HttpGet object. This method fails. But if I manually add my parameters to my URL (i.e. append '?param1=value1¶m2=value2') it succeeds.

Is there an API that i could use (GoogleMaps or AJAX Search)?

Android :: Reliable Http Request Needed

Aug 5, 2009

I have a game in development that makes http calls to my server. The server handles some database interaction and returns some XML for the game to parse. The issue is that the connection seems very unreliable. I believe my server is in part to blame for this because it can be somewhat unresponsive at times, but the frequency is MUCH greater when communicating with the phone than with a browser on a computer. I also notice that it gets worse when 3G is not available for the phone and it is on the edge network. Is there any way to code my app to make it more robust? Do I need to retry calls X times on failures?

Here is the code I am using now:

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

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?

Android :: App Keeps Dying After Http Request Results Put Into Layout / Fix It?

Nov 15, 2010

I honestly could not think of a good title. Sorry. Anyway, so I have an app that I am making where I pull information from my custom web api. I pull data from the api and fill in the layout with this information. Problem is it takes a while so the app stalls for a few seconds before the information is pulled since it is in the onCreate method of the activity. To resolve this I implemented a loading dialog. This is where the problems began. I put the http requests into a seperate thread and it downloads fine. No problem. However it keeps force closing every time I try to modify the layout afterward. So basically my question is how do I modify the layout after the background thread is finished? Everything I try keeps force closing the app.

Send HTTP Request From App To Script On Website?

Feb 24, 2012

I'm trying to send an http request from my app to script on my website. The script simply writes the parameters received from the request. If I send the request from a browser it works, so the script is ok, but from my app nothing happens.

This is the code I'm using. The toast at the beginning is only to check if the parameters arrive correctly to the function, they are correct.

Code:

public void postData(String from, String to, String date, String time, String searchby, String type, String orderby) {
String testo = from+" - "+to+" - "+date+" - "+time+" - "+searchby+" - "+type+" - "+orderby;
Toast toast=Toast.makeText(this, testo, 6000);

AsyncTask Force Close Errors / HTTP Request To MySQL Database

Aug 22, 2012

I'm trying to connect my app to a MySQL database to retrieve data. Obviously I have to do this in a new thread hence why I chose AsyncTask, something I'm new to.

I have included Toasts to tell me if there are problems when trying to carry out any part of it. However these toasts are not showing on the UI thread. I tested this out by turning off the server my SQL database is on so that it could trip the first toast. It didn't show it though and instead it gave me a force close error. When my server is running I have no issues and although I haven't coded the bit to retrieve data yet the code below does connect to my database and at least lets me view the page "CurrentSeasonDrivers".

Here is my code and the logcat showing the errors below that:

packageĀ com.android.history;
importĀ java.io.BufferedReader;
importĀ java.io.InputStream;
importĀ java.io.InputStreamReader;
importĀ java.util.ArrayList;
[code]....

All I want it to do is show a toast if the application cannot connect to the server instead of force closing.

Android :: Http Post Abort Not Returning Immediately When Called From Separate Thread

Mar 24, 2010

I am using a DefaultHttpClient and a ThreadSafeClientConnManager to share the httpClient across threads. That part is working well. However, when I execute an HttpPost in one thread, and call httpPost.abort() from another. It does not return immediately and continues blocking until the socket timeout is reached in most cases. Am I missing something else? I've tried using: connectionManager.closeIdleConnections(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS); connectionManager.closeExpiredConnections();

Android :: Google Reader API Request Token - Get 400:Bad Request

Jul 8, 2010

this Android code worked fine before, but i'm having problems for some reason. here is the request i'm trying to make: https://www.google.com/reader/api/0/token. i'm getting 400:Bad Request as a response, and i'm not sure why. isn't this the correct URL for requesting a token? the auth token is being passed as a header in all requests now, and i can request feed list, and it works just fine, so there's nothing wrong with the auth code. what gives? in addition, i can request a token in a normal browser, like Chrome, and get a token as a response body. so the request itself is not the problem. i just can't figure out what is wrong with my requests in code...

Bad Request While Trying To Send Cookie With HttpGet Request

Aug 17, 2012

I am developing an Android app for a website. I'm trying to get some information from the website by sending a cookie using a HttpGet request. I don't know where I am going wrong with the request. I am using AsyncTask to send the request to the server. The request also uses a token which I receive when I login to the webpage. All this is clear in the code below. This is part of the process in the doInBackground() function of the Asynctask:

BufferedReader in = null;
JSONObject token = Login.getToken(); // Token received after login, used in the cookie
try {
r = token.get("session_token").toString();
} catch (JSONException e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
[code]...

I own a Xiaomi MI2S, running MIUI-3.8.16 @ Android version 4.1.1.JRO03L with Baseband version CEFWMAZM-2.0.128 017.

The code is accepted, I can be called and i can send and receive SMS messages.

However i cannot make phone-calls...

The error (?) is "DIAL request modified to SS request" and (very short) "not connected"

Android :: Android 1.5 - Asynctask DoInBackground Not Called / Method Called

Oct 26, 2010

I am running into an issue with the way my asynctasks are executed. Here's the problem code:

firstTask = new background().new FirstTask(context);
if(firstTask.execute().get().toString().equals("1"))
secondTask = new background().new SecondTask(context);

What I'm doing here is creating a new asynctask object, assigning it to firstTask and then executing it. I then want to fire off a separate asynctask when the first one is done and making sure it returns a success value (1 in this case). This works perfectly on Android 2.0 and up. However, I am testing with Android 1.5 and problems start popping up. The code above will run the first asynctask but doInBackground() is never called despite onPreExecute() being called. If I am to execute the first task without the get() method, doInBackground() is called and everything works as expected. Except now I do not have a way to determine if the first task completed successfully so that I can tell the second task to execute. Is it safe to assume that this is a bug with asynctask on Android 1.5? Especially since the API says that the get method has been implemented since API 3. Is there any way to fix this? Or another way to determine that the first task has finished?

Android :: How To Protect Private Information From Others?

Jun 23, 2010

I've integrated lots of private information like accounting, messaging, emails, tasks and so on, into desktop widgets and everywhere around the phone. Every so often, someone wants to take a look at the phone and play around. Reading some important stuff is one thing, but people tend to mess the stuff around as well. Have you found a program or a way to protect from that? (other than denying to the people :> ) I guess some kind of shell program that you turn over when someone wants to demo the phone would be a nice solution.

Android :: Better Way To Protect Apps - Get A License Key?

Apr 6, 2009

Just did a little search on google with my paid app name, I found these:

http://www.ipmart-forum.com/archive/index.php/t-337082.html http://droidappz.co.cc/index.php/board,21.0.html

Someone bought the priced app from market with the "rooted" phone and copy the apk file, then post on the websites for others to download.

Should Android team give a better way to protect the priced apps?

For example, encrypt the apk with the unique device hardware id for each download request. And verify the key before execution. So the apk can only be used on this phone.

There should be much better and complicated ways. but this is the basic idea.

I have checked the BlackBerry app world, looks like they have something different:

General :: How To Protect Android From Getting Messed Up

Mar 13, 2012

My parents are going on a trip in a month and they have there heart set on taking a smartphone with them.What they need is being able to call, text and mail.They also want to be able to use it as a backup (just in case) for finding their way. So just in case they get lost to find out where they are on their map or use the gps to guide them for a little while.

So basically, calling, sms, mail and gps. They don't need to be able to change a lot of settings.So, I was thinking about installing their (yet to buy) smart phone with a simple home screen and the settings they would need. To keep them from accidentally messing anything up, I was wondering if it is possible to password protect settings and stuff.

-how to protect settings etc.
-a good home screen
-other things like very simple gps app for example

Android :: What Do You Do To Protect User From Dangerous Button?

In order to avoid accidental resets, I made that button respond only to long-clicks.However, that approach confused about 20% of my new users, who thought that the reset button must not be working.Is there a more intuitive (and standard) way to protect a button from accidental presses? (If not, I can add some sort of custom message to the button I have )

Android :: Copy Protect Rights For Applications?

So the questions is, if our paid app is already available all over the internet for FREE!! What's the point of copy protecting an app? Should I even care at this point about that feature? It seems I'm gonna get more sales if I disable copy protection, but makes me wonder.

Android :: Want A Goog Way To Protect Application Files

Which is the best way to protect them from outer access from phone or from PC. XMLs can be encrypted. And images too, however there are times when they need to be accessed very often and encrypting-decrypting is very heavy operation. XML encryption is manageable but images cause memory problems. Is there any alternative way, something at folder level ?
