Debugging android development

  The DDMS (Dalvik Debug Monitor Service) perspective of ADT-Plug-in is the best way of debugging the android application. Open your eclipse as DDMS perspective through window -> Open perspective -> others and choose DDMS view.

 Basically the DDMS features are divided into five major functional areas.
   1. File management
   2. Logging
   3. Screen captures
   4. Task management
   5. Emulator interaction 
File management:
   You can able to see your android file systems through file explorer present in DDMS perspective. See the below screen shot.
View Log information:
  You can able to your log information through “LogCat” view. The LogCat view displays the error, warring, debug related information. See the below screen shot.

  The “android.util.Log” class has some useful methods for logging our custom messages.  See the following methods and corresponding purpose,
  1. Log.e() – Logs error messages
  2. Log.i()  -  Logs information messages
  3. Log.w() – Logs warning messages
  4. Log.d() – Logs debug messages
  5. Log.v() – Logs verbose messages

  Basically the log functionality reduces the application performance, so use the log functionalities only at development time. Before upload the apk file into android market, don’t forgot to removes the all log related code from your application.

Screen capture:
  Using this feature, you can able to take the screen shot of the current emulator or handset. Do the following steps.
 1. Run the emulator and launch the some application.
 2 Open the eclipse as DDMS perspective.
 3.Click the captured icon, See the below screen shot.

  After that one new window will launch and it will take the screen shot of the currently opened window, finally it will allow you to save the image into local file system.

Emulator Interaction:
  Using this feature, you can able to send some dummy messages to emulator or you can able to call using some dummy number.
  For sending message, enter some dummy number then choose “SMS” option and then enter your message finally click “send” button.

 Now go to your emulator and open the inbox. The message will be there in your inbox.

 For making call, enter some dummy number then choose “Voice” option finally click “call” button.

 Now see your emulator.

Getting key/value pair from JSON object and getting variable name and value from JavaScript object.

 Hi, I had faced one issue like this. I have an JSON object but I don't know any key name but I need to get the all the key and corresponding value from JSON object using client side JavaScript. Suddenly I wondered whether it's possible or not, after that I had done lot of workaround and finally got this solution. See the below example.    function getKeyValueFromJSON() {     var jsonObj =  {a:10,b:20,c:30,d:50} ;     for ( var key in jsonObj) {       alert( "Key: " + key + " value: " + jsonObj[key]);     }  }  In this example I have created the one json array as string, and converted this string into JSON object using eval() function. Using for-each loop I got all the key value from jsonObj, and finally using that key I got the corresponding value.  Finally I got the alert like this,    Key: a value:10    Key: b value:20    Key: c value:30    Key: d value:50  During this workaround I got one more idea, using this same way I got

Simple Login Application Using Spring MVC and Hibernate – Part 1

 I hope developers working in web application development might hear about MVC architecture. Almost all technologies provide support for MVC based web application development, but the success is based on many factors like reusable of the code, maintenance of the code, future adaption of the code, etc..,  The success of the Spring MVC is “ Open for extension and closed for modification ” principle. Using Spring MVC the developers can easily develop MVC based web application. We don’t need any steep learning curve at the same time we need to know the basics of spring framework and MVC architecture. The Spring MVC consists of following important components. 1. Dispatcher servlet 2. Controller 3. View Resolver 4. Model Spring MVC - Overview  The overall architecture of Spring MVC is shown here.  1. When “Dispatcher Servlet” gets any request from client, it finds the corresponding mapped controller for the request and just dispatches the request to the corresponding contro

Simple Login Application Using Spring MVC and Hibernate – Part 2

 I hope you have visited my part1 of my tutorial . Let’s see the steps for integrating hibernate framework into Spring MVC. Here I have used MySQL database. I have created one database called “ springmvc ” and created one table called “ user ” with userid, username, password fields.  I have inserted some records into table like this. Step 1: Creating User POJO class.  We need to create a User POJO class for mapping user table. Ok let’s create it. Step 2: Creating hibernate mapping xml file for user class.  In hibernate we need to create hibernate mapping xml file for all domain class for mapping into corresponding database table. Instead of creating xml file you can use annotation for mapping domain class into database table. This is my mapping xml document created for mapping our user domain class into user database table. Step 3: Creating authenticate service class.  The method “verifyUserNameAndPassword” present in “AuthenticateService”
