posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes ago
Sunday, September 02, 2012 5:38:17 PM GMT
JavaFX seem to be gaining ground on the RIA space. With the right tools and development support, it wil definitely have its toll on the next best technology “thing!”. I’m not writing any JavaFX review here since there is a lot of Technology critiques out there that probably reviewed it extensively, but instead, I will write a simple tutorial on how can you develop JavaFX application in your MacOSX lion.

Programming Mobile: Hadoop Debugging Pains

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 38 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:24:36 PM GMT
Hadoop is an open source Map Reduce framework. On paper, it allows you to create a very scalable distributed program by filling in only a handful of functions. Its benefit lies in solving problems with very large datasets. By shaping a problem into Mappers and Reducers, a program can be divided up on any number of computers. Sounds pretty easy right? At least that’s what I thought going in. (more)

Programming Mobile: Custom Title Bars in Android

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 39 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:22:58 PM GMT
Ever get tired of the standard Android processing popup? Wouldn’t it be nice to add a processing animation to the Title bar instead of slapping on a dialogue box right in the middle of the screen that simply says “doing things”? As it turns out, that’s not such a tall order. As it turns out, this can be done a few different ways, depending on what you want exactly. (more)

Programming Mobile: Android Tutorial: Adding Gestures to Your App

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 40 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:22:00 PM GMT
Gestures in mobile apps are pretty common place these days. Almost anyone with smart phone experience knows that pinching will usually zoom in on an image. Now, using Gestures in Android is a snap. OnTouch All gestures are really handled with one event on an Activity. OnTouch is called anytime a View is touched on the screen. (more)

Programming Mobile: Dealing with Java’s Input Streams

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 47 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:15:17 PM GMT
Always check your byte count when using Java Input Streams. Why do you ask, Mr. intelligent internet reader? Well, the other day I ran across a strange response with some of our client code. In some rare instances, maybe 1 in 500 requests, the HTTP response we received from our server would come back as a bunch of unreadable mess. (more)

Programming Mobile: Dependency Injection for Android with Google’s Roboguice

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 52 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:09:57 PM GMT
For most developers, writing Android apps means writing a ton of Java. On large projects, trying to keep patterns straight can be pretty difficult. Useful frameworks for Android are few and far between, which leaves the programmer to pick up a lot of the details of the system. Far too many bugs are created this way. (more)

Programming Mobile: Learning iOS from an Android Developer’s Perspective – Part 1

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 53 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:09:14 PM GMT
Over the last year or so, I have spent most of my programming time (at work and at home) improving my skills with Android. I picked up Android because, at the time, I didn’t have access to a Mac, and I really didn’t like the idea of having to pay Apple just to develop software for iOS (although it would have been nice to write some apps for my iPod Touch).

Programming Mobile: Multiple Click Handlers on a List View Row in Android

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 54 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:08:23 PM GMT
Recently a reader asked a interesting question. The reader asked how to handle multiple buttons within a list view item, while still being able to scroll the list and click on the list item itself. In Android, when you introduce a view that has drawable states to to a list view, any touch events that the list view would normally handle no longer work, because all touch events are now being used by the new view that was added.

After months of adding new code and resources to a project, its very likely that some of the added resources aren’t being used right now and are taking up space in your project. Going through your project file by file looking for unused drawables or unused entries in Strings.xml. (more)

Programming Mobile: Buttery Smooth List Scrolling in Android

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 57 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:05:28 PM GMT
If I had to compare iOS to Android and only list one major benefit iOS has over Android, it would be the scrolling list performance, hands down (and I’m not the only one, or two, or three to say this...). Seeing as scrolling lists are essential to just about every major mobile app, it affects the end user the most. Android's list view performance leads people to believe that Android is an inferior OS to iOS. (more)

Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:04:35 PM GMT
Now a desktop computer isn’t the only way to write Android apps anymore. AIDE is a full feature IDE built right into an Android app. AIDE allows you to write your Java code, compile, and test your new app all on the device. It even has some fairly advance IDE features like syntax highlighting and code completion. (more)

Programming Mobile: Adding Libraries to your Android project with ADT 17

posted by anishaanisha 594 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:02:58 PM GMT
The developers over at Google like to change things up with each ADT version, it seems. For those unaware, the ADT (Android Developer Tools) is simply the plugin that goes along with Eclipse. It does all the heavy lifting of compilation (with the Android SDK) for Android projects. Although things are getting more stable with each new version, there are always a few gotchas in each version. The latest version is no different. (more)

Programming Mobile: Implementing Facebook’s Notification Widget in Android

posted by anishaanisha 595 days, 1 minute ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:01:25 PM GMT
Have you ever checked out the Facebook app? When you click on the Notifications button at the top, the app creates a nice overlaid window that contains a scrolling list view of all your info. It doesn’t dim out the background, and it also disappears if you click anywhere on the screen that isn’t in the overlaid window itself. The overlay is a great idea to add some polish to a UI. (more)

Programming Mobile: JSON versus XML: Is JSON Really Better than XML?

posted by anishaanisha 595 days, 2 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 8:00:17 PM GMT
JSON is a new human readable data format that has become very popular in the last few years, especially in web development. JSON is very similar to XML. They both try to solve the same problem by creating a simple, human readable format for storing data. Up until recently, XML was used for any type of system that needed to send small portions of data quickly without a database attached. (more)

Programming Mobile: Want to Add a Navigation Drawer to Your Android App?

posted by anishaanisha 595 days, 6 minutes ago
Saturday, September 01, 2012 7:56:54 PM GMT
Android's Navigation Drawer is one of the major features of an Android phone. The drawer gives the user access to things like notifications (someone just send you a text message), to system events (Wi-Fi has changed) to which apps are currently running (depending on what "skin" of Android is in use). The user can open the Nav Drawer by just swiping down from the Status Bar. (more)
