The most buzzing questions among Android developers are:
- How to call webservice in Android applications that has been created using Java or Dot Net?
- How to invoke RESTful webservice in Android applications?
- How to call SOAP webservice in Android applications?
Here in Android Tutorial Blog, we have already discussed lot about using Webservice in Android applications. Take a look at Android Webservice Tutorial to know list of articles we wrote on webservice.
Integrating Android application and Webservice is not that much difficult. We can make it work if we know basics of webservice and the procedure to make webservice call from inside Android applications.
In this post, I will be discussing about creating and invoking RESTful webservice in Android applications.
In this post, I am going to explain how to sync data present in Android SQLite database to remote MySQL DB. In most of the Android applications, the data present in the local SQLite database will be synced with remote DB in order to perform statistical operations at the server end, maintain backup of the offline data etc.
In such cases, offline data will be synced with remote DB when User explicitly hits ‘Sync’ button or asynchronously by the application itself (in particular interval) when Internet connectivity is available.
In the previous posts, we discussed how to add Action Bar, handle action items clicks and add Up button. In this post, I will teach you now how to hide and show Action Bar.
In some scenario we need to hide Action Bar to provide more space for User to work on the applications.
I would recommend you to take a look at the previous posts listed below (which are prerequisites to learn current article) so that you can learn this post with much ease.
In the previous posts, we discussed how to add Action Bar and handle action items clicks. In this post, I will teach you how to add ‘Up’ or Navigation button on Action Bar.
Navigation button appears along with the icon in the action bar with the caret symbol.
For Ex: GMail Application with ‘Up’ button
In the previous post, I discussed how to add Action Bar in Android applications. A simple demo application was also created with dummy Action Bar (which will not respond to clicks).
You must know how to add Action Bar in Android application before you proceed with this post. I recommend you to take a look at How to add Action Bar in Android Applications? post which will provide you insights on adding Action Bar.
In this post, I will teach you how to handle clicks on Action Bar action items. You need to create a simple Android application with Action Bar before you proceed further.
