HTC Incredible :: Location Based Services

May 24, 2010

I know there are many posts about location based widgets not working correctly (and I have read lots of them). Some people say they do and others say they don't work right. on my DI I can not get the Sense Weather/Clock to follow where I am currently (GPS on or off). Is it supposed to?? It would seem to me that it should be able to get a rough area based on what cell towers I'm hitting, but that doesn't work for anything. Every weather based widget I've tried works solely off GPS and when I am in my building at work there is no connecting to the GPS Sats. So before I go off on a tangent I'll ask my question(s). Should non-GPS location services work? Or does everything need GPS on and connected? I only have about a week left and I want to make sure that my phone is working correctly before my 30 days are up. This is the only frustrating thing I have found with the phone so far.

Android :: Amazon Web Services Java SDK Jar In Project In Eclipse

Sep 28, 2010

I'm trying to use the Amazon Web Services Java SDK jar in an Android project in Eclipse, but it has references to org.apache.commons.httpclient. All I seem to have in my Android SDK (2.2) is org.apache.commons.http.client, which is a different namespace and obviously causes the build to fail.

I'm new to Java, Eclipse, and Android dev... is there a way to "map" one name space to the other or create some sort of symbolic link? If not, does that mean I have to import a "standard" org.apache.commons library?

All SYMBIAN based end devices accept Java language Applications

(i)Does this mean that the applications made for Android would run in S60 ,without any modifications?

(ii)If not then what exactly we mean when we say the above statement? Is there any web link to which I can refer to?

(iii)What are the coding guidelines that we need to follow so that an Android application can be ported on S60 with minimum changes?

Samsung I7500 :: Programming Apps Are Based Off Of Java

Aug 22, 2010

As the title says i'm new to the Android community, and i don't have much experience on the development side either. but i am very interested in getting started. I see that Android apps are based off of Java... So would it be better for me to learn Java before getting started with the SDK and eclipse? Or is it just the same to jump right in on App development and learn on the fly?

Android :: Services X Threads

Feb 22, 2010

I'm trying to understand the idea behind the Services. If it runs in the program's thread, why not create just a separate thread (or AsyncTask) to do the job? Can a service keep running in the background? For example, i want to create a task that will continuously be polling data from a server, even if the main application is not running. Can this be achieved with a Service?

Android :: Listening To Services

May 19, 2009

In my ideal little dream world, I'd like to have a custom service running that handles network comms. Activities (e.g. UIs) then add listeners to it and it provides callbacks when anything interesting happens.

As it stands, I can't see how to do this in an appropriate way. OK, you can call bindService() and have a ServiceConnection implementation that monitors the service state. From there you can easily talk *to* the service whenever you desire, using serialisation over transactions, but I don't think that helps with communication initiated by the service.

The only way I know of doing what I want is by maintaining static collections of listeners on the service class, which doesn't strike me as good engineering.

General :: What Are Android Services

Jul 30, 2013

When an app gets permission to access your Google account's Android services exactly what does it have access to? Is it authenticated to access all your google stuff including gmail?

For example, I installed Changelog Droid from the play store and it wants to access my Android services. I understand it probably only needs the permission to access my play store account to analyze my installed apps, but what else is open to it if I give it the permission?

Android :: Using New StartForeground Vs Old SetForground For Services

Nov 26, 2009

I have a couple of services in my application which need to be marked as foreground to prevent them from being killed unnecessarily. Currently I am building my application with the 2.0 SDK but I have android:minSdkVersion="3" android:targetSdkVersion="5" in my manifest file so that I can support 1.5, 1.6 or 2.0 devices. I am currently using only the 1.5 APIs so that my application will run correctly on the 1.5 devices.

2.0 introduced a nicer startForground method that combines setting the foreground flag and starting a notification which can be used to control the service. The 2.0 documentation says that startForground replaces setForeground, and that due to the fact that many applications were mistakenly using setForeground without a notification that could be used to control and close down the service, that the older setForeground method had been changed so it no longer does anything on 2.0. I tried using the newer 2.0 interface but it caused an exception for phones running 1.5 or 1.6. So I am still using the older setForeground interface and calling notify separately. But it appears that since I am building with the 2.0 SDK the older interface isn't really preventing my services from being killed.

Android :: Stop Other Services In API 8 (Froyo 2.2)

Jun 12, 2010

I know of the wonderful change from 2.1 to 2.2 that ActivityManager.restartPackage now doesn't do the dirty stuff anymore since it now calls killBackgroundProcesses. Nice on one side, but bad on the other side. Because of that Services are not killed anymore.See as well: am the developer of SleepTimer in the Android market and used restartPackage to stop Music Players to play music. I therefore killed the services. That worked well. But now with killBackgroundProcesses it doesn't work anymore. I added the new Permission to my manifest, but still the music remains running. Yes i know that google kind of wants that. But it breaks the possibility to stop the different music players from my app. Now my question: Is there another way to kill/stop other services (music player services) in API 8?

Android :: Debugging Geo Locations Services

Jan 20, 2009

I wrote some reverse geocoding, geolocation and proximity alert routines for my little Android app. I took my Android out with me when running errands to test my routines; they're kinda hard to test from my couch. Half of them didn't work. What's the best way to debug something like this? Sprinkle a bunch of printf statements (or whatever you call them in Java) throughout the app? Log everything to the sdcard? Write a toggleable view (is that even possible?) that acts as a console? Faber Fedor Cloud Computing New Jersey

Android :: Code For XMPP Services

Nov 18, 2009

I went through the Android introduction videos and in them an engineer from Google spoke of an open XMPP/gtalk service provided by Android, that developers could use to push messages out from a server to Android devices. I googled the forums and dug through the SDK samples, but could not find any code for these XMPP services. Also my search results only returned entries logged in the Jan 2008 time frame an earlier (I found this to be somewhat odd). Anyway, there was mention of a SMACK API that handles xmpp messaging, but I'm assuming that android has their own libraries for this.

Android :: How Binding To Services Works

Jul 2, 2010

I'm a little confused on how binding to services works. I understand using Context.startService() starts the service and that bindService doesn't call onStartCommand. But my understanding is that if I use startService, I have to explicitly stop the service. But I want the service to die if there are no more activities bound to it.My problem is that calling bindService never calls onServiceConnected(), so my Service binder object is null. Does the service have to be explicitly started in order to bind to it? If so, how does it know to terminate when nothing is binding to it anymore, and how do I know if it's started so I can know to use the bound object?

Android :: KSoap2 Or RESTful Web Services?

Sep 27, 2010

What is the best way to deal with web services in Android? I have been looking at KSoap2 library and RESTful web services.

I got one working with KSoap2, but only when the web service is on a remote server, not on localhost. I have tried to redirect the ports for incoming and outgoing as it says on the android dev site, i have used the ip of the network i am on, my own ip and the localhost-ip (it says on the site that one cannot use localhost cause that is the emulators own loop-back network. None works.

With RESTful webservices, i have only tried a tutorial where a google app engine is used as server if i understood it right. Is it easy to connect a RESTful web service to a database. I need to have a database connection in my applikation, which one is normally used with REST?
