Android :: Putting Serializable Classes Into SQL?

May 4, 2010

I have a bunch of objects that implement Serializable that I want to store in a SQL database.

I have two questions:

Is there a way to serialize the object directly into the database. Is that the best way to do it or should I Write the object out to a formatting String and put it in the database that way and then parse it back out
Write each member to the database with a field that is unique to each object.

Why does Android provide 2 interfaces for serializing objects? Do Serializable objects interopt with Android Binder and AIDL files?

Android :: Bundles And Serializable Objects - What Is Actually Stored?

Mar 24, 2009

was wondering about the behavior of Bundles and serializable objects. If I put a serializable object into a bundle, what is serialized then, the reference to the object or the object itself? I always assumed that the object itself would be serialized to a byte stream when calling putExtra() and re-created from that representation when calling getSerializableExtra(), but I recently stumbled upon a piece of code that put an entire view into a Bundle in thread A, retrieved it from that bundle in thread B, performed a modification on it and this modification actually became visible. This can only happen if the reference to that view was stored, not the view itself, right? Otherwise, the modification had been applied to a copy of that view and would be meaningless.

Android :: Serializable Object In Intent Returning As String

Jun 16, 2010

In my application, I am trying to pass a serializable object through an intent to another activity. The intent is not entirely created by me, it is created and passed through a search suggestion.

In the content provider for the search suggestion, the object is created and placed in the SUGGEST_COLUMN_INTENT_EXTRA_DATA column of the MatrixCursor. However, when in the receiving activity I call getIntent().getSerializableExtra(SearchManager.EXTRA_DATA_KEY), the returned object is of type String and I cannot cast it into the original object class.

I tried making a parcelable wrapper for my object that calls out.writeSerializable(...) and use that instead but the same thing happened.

The string that is returned is like a generic Object toString(), i.e., so I'm assuming that toString() is being called somewhere where I have no control.

Some of my code


This is in the activity that receives the search suggestion:

Android :: Putting Data In SMS Sent Intent?

Dec 30, 2009

I'd like to send an sms message. If the text is too long, I split it into multiple messages. I'm trying to put some extra info into the "sent" intent to know which part has been sent, and when all the parts are complete: The message is sent, and I catch the intent when each part is sent - but the intent always has the same data in it. For example, "partIndex" is always zero, even though for the second message, it should be one. Seems like the same intent just keeps getting thrown to my broadcast receiver. What's the right way to do this?

Android :: Putting Views On Top Of Other View

Feb 9, 2010

I'm still trying to figure out how best to layer views on top of other views. I want to do something like the ZoomButtons on top of a custom view. I tried getting the ZoomButtonsController's parent and then adding views, but I didn't have enough control and they ended up on top of the buttons. I've gotten close by using a FrameLayout and some gravity on the top two views. But this has some interesting effects. Since this is contained with a tab, these two top views appear on top of all four of the tab pages. I want them on top of one of those pages only. Apparently, nested FrameLayouts don't mix well. What is the proper and expected way to do this? Here is more or less my complete layout....................

Android :: Putting App For Testing On My Dev Phone

Jan 29, 2009

I have gotten through signing up as an Android developer, joined Android Market, and recieved and activated my Android Developer Phone.I have my first draft application running in the emulator.The documentation suggests testing it throughly on the device, however, I don't want to put it up publicly in the Android Market until I am satisfied with the app.

1) Is there a way to privately post a testing app on Android Market? If so, would somebody please point this newbie to the HOW-TO?

2) Is there a way to push my app onto my developer phone without using Android Market? If so, would somebody please point this newbie to the HOW-TO?

I'm having more fun working with this Android stuff than I have had in years! As soon as I learn enough to contribute I'm going to be overjoyed to share it.

Android :: Error With Putting Extra Object

Apr 13, 2010

I'm trying to pass an object from an activity to another activity. In the first activity i do:

Intent intent = new Intent(this, SecondsActivity.class); intent.putExtra("package.class", SerializableObject);

And in the second activity:

Class object = (Class) extras.getSerializable("package.class"); objetc.modifySomething(2432);

Intent intent = new Intent(this, ThirdActivity.class); intent.putExtra("package.class", SerializableObject);

But if i modify the object in the second activity, it fails when i send this object to a third activity.Why does it fail? What am i doing wrong? I just need to pass objects between diferent activities because i have an object which contains many information, and creating a Boundle would be very big and ugly in my code.

Android : Doesn't Show Up Add Contacts / Where Is It Putting?

Jun 21, 2010

When I add a new contact to my phone it doesn't show up in the contacts list. When I dial the number manually it shows the name of the person I am calling or that I added. Where is it putting my new contacts? Is there a group setting somewhere I missed?

I also noticed that all my numbers that were brought over from my old phone are listed twice when I go to edit a contact. They are only listed once when I look up a contact but under edit there are two screens with the same info.

Android :: Strategy To Distribute Application Without Putting On Market

Nov 24, 2010

We are planning on this strategy to distribute our application to clients. We would like to get your your thoughts, if you have done something similar, in terms of whether we are missing something. We have tested this approach and it works.We want to distribute our application to our clients without putting it on the market as we do not want every one to download it. We want our clients to be able to easily get future upgrades to the application. Here is how we are planning to do this:

1. export the apk file using the Eclipse wizard.

2. put this apk file on a website. The user will be able to go to this website on the browser on the phone and install the 1st version of the app.

3. next versions of the app will have an incremented android:versionCode, and android:versionName in the manifest. A button in the settings will point to a link which will have the next version of the app. So to upgrade the user will click on this settings button and download the next version and click on the apk file to replace the old version.All subsequent versions of the app will be signed by the same certificate using the export wizard in Eclipse

Android :: Putting Device To Sleep And Wake Up Programmatically?

May 23, 2009

My app seldom needs to put the device (or screen) to sleep. That is - programmatically imitate user pressing on red stop-call button. According to docs PowerManager.goToSleep() does just that, but requires android.permission.DEVICE_POWER, which is never granted to apps!

(A) What on earth should I do to get this working?
(B) How can I programmatically wake up the device.

just to clarify - I'm not interested in a wake lock solution.

Android :: ListActivity - Alter Data From SQLLite Before Putting Into Row

Dec 11, 2009

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

mDbHelper = new MyDbAdapter(this);;


The date is actually stored as an int in the SQLLite database, and thus it displays as an integer. Does anyone know a way to create a date from the int so it doesn't display as 1216544611 (or whatever) but as "12/11/2009 11:32"?

Android :: Classes To Use For UI Game Development

Aug 30, 2010

I am trying to determine how to structure the code of a simple android game I am writing. I am focused on the UI portion. The behind the scenes portion (like a pause/restart/switching/etc) does not concern me. The Android demo games source code already do a great job with this. Essentially my game will need a UI with a series of objects on the screen (roughly 100 or 10x10) that the user can interact with. I need to supply an image for each object as well as implement the touch events and animation events for each object. What I am wondering is what type of class do I use for each object so that I can successfully implement these methods and how do I implement that particular class. Note that this game only executes on a user interaction with one of these objects, meaning I don't need a "real-time" implementation.....

Android :: When Do Classes Get Unloaded By System

Mar 15, 2010

This is a very weird problem. My app that runs just fine but somehow if I leave my phone for an hour or two while my app is running, I get the following error when I come back to it later:


I know for a fact that my yoga.database.Manager class was loaded at the time when the app was launched, but somehow the class must have been unloaded by the system as I left the phone.

Does Android unload classes automatically after certain periods? What can I do when my class gets unloaded? The above error causes my app to crash, but I can easily re-launch it and it runs just fine. The problem occurs mostly on my HTC Magic phone running Android 1.6.

Android :: How To Include Third Party Classes Into The Apk

Mar 19, 2010

I have a couple of third party classes which serve as a library I can build my application upon. They are contained in a folder which was added Java Build Path -> Libraries (in Eclipse) with "Add Class Folder". It works fine so far an my app compiles. But the produced .apk contains only my classes and therefore the application does not run. How can I tell Eclipse to package the third party classes into the .apk as well?
