Android - The radio group creation and event handler mechanism

 This is very simple example for creating check box in android application. Here I have created the new android project and I have modified the main.xml file with following code.



 Here I have created the one radio grop and I have added some games names as option. Now I am going to display the selected game with using TextView. For getting this effect I have modified the main activity java file with following code.

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.RadioGroup;
import android.widget.RadioGroup.OnCheckedChangeListener;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class RadioBoxActivity extends Activity implements OnCheckedChangeListener{
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
       RadioGroup radioGroup;
       TextView textView;
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        radioGroup = (RadioGroup)findViewById(;
        textView = (TextView)findViewById(;

       public void onCheckedChanged(RadioGroup group, int checkedId) {
              // TODO Auto-generated method stub
              int myCheckedRadioId = radioGroup.getCheckedRadioButtonId();
              String displayStr = "";
              if(myCheckedRadioId == {
                     displayStr = "My favorite game is Cricket" ;
              else if(myCheckedRadioId == {
                     displayStr = "My favorite game is Hockey" ;
              else {
                     displayStr = "My favorite game is Football" ;

 Here I have taken the radio group handle and text view handle through using findViewById method. For adding action listener to radio group, I have implemented the OnCheckedChangeListener interface and I have override the onCheckedChanged() method. In this method I have get the selected radio id using getCheckedRadioButtonId() method. After that I have used this selected id value for finding selected game through comparing this selected id value with all the radio id value. At last I have changed the text view value with computed string. The filnal result should be like this only.

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 all the variable name and corresponding value from Java…

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 controller. The reque…

Meteor tutorial - Part II - Building mobile applications

In my previous blog post, I have explained basics of meteor. In this tutorial I am going to add mobile support to the existing meteor application.

Installing mobile SDKs

Before going to start we need to install IOS and android SDKs (Software development kit). Here I am installing SDKs for iOS. Please keep in mind this is one time process.

For installing iOS SDKs, we need to invoke “meteor install-sdk ios”.

The same way you can install android SKDs by invoking “meteor install-sdk android” command.

Adding mobile platform support

I am using already created application called “myapp” and going to add iOS platform support by invoking a command “meteor add-platform ios”.

We can add android platform by invoking a command  “meteor add-platform android”.
Running application on mobile emulator
Once we add mobile platform then we can run our application by using real mobile device or emulator. I have added IOS platform to myapp already. Now I am going to run that application by using iPhone emulato…
