Android :: Start Another Application From Another Package With An Intent

May 6, 2010

I know how to update my own programs, and I know how to open programs using the a predefined Uri (for sms or email for example)

I need to know how I can create an Intent to open MyTracks or any other application that I don't know what intents they listen to.

I got this info from DDMS, but I havn't been succesful in turning this to an Intent I can use. This is taken from when opening MyTracks manually.

Android :: How To Get Name Of A Package That Dispatched An Intent

Sep 10, 2010

I have a service setup to receive a PACKAGE_ADDED and a PACKAGE_REMOVED intent from all <data android:scheme="package" />

I receive the intent correctly, but I need to know how to use the Intent and Context classes from onReceive to get the name and label of the application that was added or removed.

I have been able to use Intent.getDataString() to get the uri string of the package, but don't really know where to go from there.

Android :: Start An Activity In Another Package

Jan 25, 2009

My application has 2 packages because one is shared with my other applications. I want to start an activity of the shared package.

I tried the following: Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setClassName(shardedPackageName,sharedActivityName); startActivity(intent);

It throws an ActivityNotFoundException and suggests that the activity might not be in the manifest. But how do I list an acitivity from another package in the manifest?

Android :: Package Name For Droid Apps To Use Intent To Launch Market App From Web?

May 7, 2010

I'm creating a mobile website that will include a page from which people can download relevant apps that we recommend. I've found instructions for creating the links to launch the Market but this assumes that you are the developer of the app in question and know the exact package name.

Is there any way to get the package name, other than just contacting the developers and asking?

Also, it turns out that those instructions don't really work for creating web hyperlinks. They only give you a URI to reference in a string of Java code in another Android app. Our site is in Drupal, so Java is not going to work.

For the iPhone, I found easy instructions for getting the URL/link style I need from the iTunes store, so I'm looking for info like that.

Android :: Start A Service Which Is Defined In A Different Package?

Apr 25, 2010

I have two apps, one runs in namespace com.gtosoft.voyager and the other is com.gtosoft.dash. From com.gtosoft.dash I would like to start up the service which is defined in com.gtosoft.voyager...

I think I need an intent, but what arg(s) would I pass to the intent before kicking it off with startService()?

If they were in the same package I could just use

Android :: Not Allowed To Start Service Intent In Permissions

Aug 8, 2009

Having trouble with permissions. The error I get is this: Not allowed to start service Intent { comp= {com.commonsware.android.service/ com.commonsware.android.service.WeatherPlusService} } without permission private to package I installed the WeatherPlus app from Mark Murphy's dev book. I'm trying to call his weather service from a different app. I think I have an issue with permissions, not really sure how they work. I thought that you could just make your own, and then check against it. With that in mind, listed below is the client manifest, followed by the service manifest. I called my permission "mypermission". Code...

Android :: Start An Intent To Launch An App To Background In Droid

May 16, 2010

I'm using Wikitude API 1.1 as an AR viewer in my application. The problem with Wikitude, if I haven't launched the actual Wikitude application since the phone's bootup, I will get a NullPointerException everytime I start my own application.

So I figure if I can start my app first and them check if Wikitude is installed and or running. If it's not installed, go to market n download. If it's not running, then we should run it straight to background so that my app doesn't loose its focuscode...

The part I block commented is the intent to start Wikitude. But I always failed in restricting Wikitude to background. Any help?

Android :: How To Start A Remote Service In Android That Is Implemented In Another App - Different Package

Jun 19, 2010

i'm a bit stuck with remote services in android. thing is i implemented a remote service in package "a.b.c" and i want other applications to be able to access this service. i got rid of the whole crappy aidl-stuff and designed the "interface" of the service to work via broadcasted intents. works fine so far...

problem is: how do i get a different application (different package, different project, maybe even a different developer, ...) to start/stop the service?

CODE:..........

This will crash my app immediately on startup. what did i do wrong? how will i get this to work?

once it's running, commands and data will be passed via broadcasts. so that should be no real problem...

Android :: Application Shutdown During Package Reinstall

Aug 21, 2009

I'm working on the upgrade process for an Android app and am having a hard time ensuring a graceful shutdown of the old version. Can someone explain how the old version of the app is killed and if there is anything we can do to hook into the process? In more detail:

We notice that a new version of our app is available and launch a new activity with Intent.ACTION_VIEW pointing to the new apk file (or to the marketplace, once our app is there). However, the user has 2 chances to abort the install (once at the warning about reinstalling the app, and the second when warned about the permissions our app needs). My understanding is that I can't use startActivityForResult() with ACTION_VIEW, so I can't find out if the Action is aborted or not. So we can't tell if/when the install has been started.

We'd like to ensure that our app shuts down cleanly since we use a lot of native code and threads. We could kill our app proactively, as soon as we launch the ACTION_VIEW activity, but then we're left in a bad state if the user aborts. We could wait for the installer to remove our files, prior to installing the new version, but that's a hack. Is there any clean way to do this? Our main window is never seeing an onDestroy(), btw.

Android :: Application Package 1.6 - Class Rightaway

May 4, 2010

I have developed an application which has several packages within it's project. A class in one of those packages is called right away in the first line of code, which throws the dreaded java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError error. I don't get it, the package simply is within the project, and it works fine on my Android 1.6 device, but won't work with my 1.5 device. I do have to say that the project was originally set for 1.6, but then I changed the within the manifest from 4 to 3. Is that bad practice? Or maybe it has nothing to do with the platform version? Also I do get these lines as wel from the DDMS :

05-04 17:24:59.921: WARN/dalvikvm(2041): VFY: unable to resolve static field 2 (MANUFACTURER) in Landroid/os/Build;

Android :: Browse Deeper Into /data/package/application

Apr 17, 2009

My app is creating a directory by using File thisDir = getDir("mycustomname", Context.MODE_WORLD_WRITEABLE); It is stored at /data/data/package/app_mycustomname/. I can browse that directory with DDMS or with 'adb shell', of course, it is empty. My App then creates some subdirectories there, and those have subdirectories too, and so on, and creates files in several of those. My app can read all those dirs and files, too. Sometimes I have to take a look at this directory tree, but I cannot browse deep into that tree, neither using DDMS (both inside Eclipse and standalone) nor using the shell. I can see that there is a directory called / data / data / package / app_mycustomname / mysubdirectory and I can even 'cd' into this directory. But when I do a 'ls' there, the directory is reported to be empty, though I'm sure there must be something inside. app_mycoustomname has the permissions drwxrwx-wx app_mycoustomname/mysubdirectory has the permissions drwxrwxrwx. I have the same issue on the emulator and on the ADP1, both running a 1.1 firmware.
