Android : What Is Context For / Save Models In Database?

May 17, 2009

I have just started on a new application that will use SQLite for persistance and Im a bit confused over the usage of a context when utilizing the SQLiteOpenHelper.

I have a base class called Storable, which my models extend if they need to be persisted. i had intended to use a synchronized singleton database adapter, but I can't for the life of me understand how to utilize the SQLiteOpenHelper as it requires a context, which my models don't appear to possess.

I'm aware that I can get around this by not using the SQLOpenHelper - but if this restriction is in place, I would assume its to prevent people creating apps "the wrong way" for android.

What is the best practice way for saving models in the database?

Android :: Database And Web Service Models

Aug 20, 2010

I'm watching the 2010 Google I/O video on this topic and I have a few questions to make sure I understand properly. Google I/O 2010 - Android REST client applications Please note I also have a very limited understanding of CursorAdapters Right now my application just has a UI layer. I've created an object called DbAdapter using some Google tutorials to create a small database and a table in that database. I've created a class I'm calling DataBroker (extending ContentProvider) to manage retrieving data from the database and calling web services to update data. Scenarios:

1) Suppose I want to display a list of items in my ListActivity. Am I correct in assuming I will write a function in my DataBroker that creates a Cursor to the table in my database that holds those items, fire up a service which launches a thread which calls a web service to get additional items, then return the Cursor to my UI thread? Doing this would likely return the Cursor to my UI thread before the web service finished, but, I'm assuming, once the CursorAdapter has a Cursor, it will automatically show any changes made to that database table, yes?

2) Now I have a list of items in my ListView. Suppose I give the user some functionality to delete an item. The user executes this functionality. It should call a function in my DataBroker which updates the row in my database corresponding to that item, setting the status column to STATE_DELETING (which will remove the row from the ListView because the Cursor has a clause excluding this state), then fire off a service that fires a thread that hits my web service, then deletes the row in the database when finished? Also, suppose I have multiple Activities, am I looking at having a static Cursor for each Activity with a list, grabbing that Cursor in the Activity's onCreate, and if that Cursor is null, hitting my DataBroker?

Android :: Using Context Menu To Delete From SQLite Database

Mar 26, 2010

I have created a list view that displays the names and dates of items stored in a SQLite database, now I want to use a Context Menu to modify these items stored in the database such as edit the name, delete, and view.

This is the code for the list view:

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

SQLiteDatabase myDB = null;
myDB = this.openOrCreateDatabase(MY_DB_NAME, MODE_PRIVATE, null);.......................

Android :: Attempts To Save Data In Database Aren't Working

Nov 5, 2010

We've been developing an Android app at work for a few months now and recently acquired Droid Incredibles (API ver. 8) to replace our HTC Dev Phones (API ver. 4).

DANG are these some sweet new toys, but unsurprisingly, they've got a few quirks...

1) It's normal for my user to let the program run for long periods without any input, but he'd still need the display to work the entire time. Can anybody suggest a function call or setting or something that will prevent the Incredible's screen from dimming while my application is running??

2) On the Dev phone, I was able to copy my application's database file (thousands of uses, that) onto the SD card's root directory and fly. I could view the directory on my PC via USB; when I released the SD card from the PC, my application was perfectly happy with it and obediently read from and wrote to the database; and I didn't have to remove the SD card, ever. That doesn't seem to be the case with the newer, better phone, though. My application seems to be reading my start up parameters properly, but all attempts to save data in my database aren't working so well unless I'm just doing something wrong. Can anybody point me to documentation specifically geared toward the Incredible?

Android :: 3d Models And Open GL

May 9, 2009

I've managed to get some basic 3d stuff working quite nicely on my Android device. My question is how do you define/create more complicated 3d models? Obivously using int[] arrays of vertices hand written is quite time consuming and error prone. Are there any modelling tools that can be used?

Android :: Predefined Licensing Models

Oct 25, 2010

As I understand, currently there exist two of them, to relieve devs from implementing their own ones, which are -strict -servermanagedpolicy However, I'm missing a predefined policy that actually is the counterpart to the soon deprecated "copy protection mode", ie one that will check once, and then keeps silent for weeks or even months, instead of harassing users to make an online connection. So, I'd like to request to please add a third predefined policy to cater to our laziness. A policy that is the counterpart to the actual old 'copy protection' thingy. Apart from this I don't really see why an app that has been correctly installed by the market with device-based signature checks and all really needs to be checked every 5 days? Wouldn't that only make sense if the app is sort of subscription-based?

Android :: Same Code & Phone Models - Inconsistent Results

Dec 14, 2009

I recently added a feature to my app that allows the user to send a report via a message chooser (all have chosen gmail) that helps mitigate the fact that I don't have all the physical phones to test on. Execution worked as expected on my G1 and the emulator, however, to my horror as users began sending them in most of them were incomplete! Pseudo-code of what I am doing is as follows: On my phone and the emulator, all of the packages are inserted into the email. However, most of the emails I get, even from the same exact phone model/carrier/OS version, only contain "Text1". Users that have automatic signature insertions even have that at the bottom, so it's not that the email is being cut off somehow, it's that size is apparently 0. That is the only thing I can think of. Every once and a while I will get a full email though. This frightens me because what other APIs run fine in my testing but not user phones? What's going on here?

Android :: Original Firmware Identification Strings For Different Models

Mar 29, 2010

Is there anywhere a summary of Build.MODEL strings for different Android handset models? Something like:"Hero" - HTC Hero "ERA G2 Touch" - branded HTC Hero "T-Mobile myTouch 3G" - branded HTC Magic "GT-I5700" - Samsung Galaxy I'm curious what is the percent of rooted devices among my app users, but sometimes is hard to tell which device is which (and yes, I know rooted firmware can mimic vanilla one, it just usually doesn't).

Samsung Fascinate :: Too Much Differentiation With Galaxy Models At Consumers Expense

Jun 30, 2010

Looks like all of the models have something good, but all have something missing. I appreciate differentiation, but this seems silly. Tmo gets 16gb built in, but no flash or FFC (not that I would us a FFC).Sprint gets a keyboard, but not the 16gb built in.Verizon's seems the weakest features of the litter in regards to built in memory (2 wimpy gigs)Best option to me would be the Sprint verison, but with 16gb built in. BTW, where is the flash for camera on the Tmo? Crazy.Samsung should change name to Silly sung.These differences would only be good for the consumer if on the same carrier and still options are too spread out. None of the devices have the complete feature set of the models. Makes zero sense to anyone but Samsung.

Android :: Android Apps Crashing On Different Phone Models

I recently created a new feature in my apps that allows the user to check if there is an update by getting an HTML page, looking through it, and comparing the versions. However, this is causing the application to force close on startup for many of my users using Samsung and HTC phones, but works just as intended on droid x, incredible, and 2. I can't get my hands on any of the phones that are currently crashing and have no idea where to start in fixing it. I use a AsyncTask to search, and start it using.

General :: Motorola Moto G - Save Apps And Games On Cloud To Save Storage?

Apr 19, 2014

I have a Motorola Moto G 8GB which is running very low on storage (only about 800mb left). This phone does not take Micro SD cards but it comes with 50GB Google Drive storage. However i haven't used this at all. I am wondering whether i could download android apps and games to google drive, dropbox etc. Games like Real Racing take up about 1GB so i cannot download it to my phone. Can i download it to the Cloud? If this is not possible, is there any way that i could save the app data on the cloud. E.g. The Simpsons: Tapped Out is about 37mb to download off the play store, but then you must download the updates etc which are about another 250mb. is there anyway to save this 250mb on the cloud. Or any other games data.

Android :: Does An App Only Have One Context Object

Jul 19, 2010

I'm confused about the concept of the Context class. I see that it's a base class of Activity, but the Android docs also mentions the Context storing global information about the app environment. So in my app which has 3 activities, does that mean I have 3 distinct Context objects, or do they actually refer to 1 entity? Also, what is the lifetime of a Context object- does it live until the last component of this activity's process is garbage collected?
