Android Threads, Handlers and AsyncTask – Great Tutorial

Very interesting topic…
It’s important as Android will display an “Application not responding” (ANR) dialog if an activities does not react within 5 seconds. From this dialog the user can choose to stop the application.

Therefore all potentially slow running operations in an Android application should run in the background, e.g. via some way of concurrency constructs of the Java language or the Android framework. Potential slow operations are network, file and database access but also complex calculations.

Tutorial from the link below will teach how to use and handle the background processing….

Android Threads, Handlers and AsyncTask

Re-import Android project issue

Sometimes when you have to re-import the project or some source files on other machine or different eclipse version you may get the following error “The method onClick(DialogInterface, int) of type new DialogInterface.OnClickListener(){} must override superclass method”

The error occurs because Eclipse is defaulting to Java 1.5 and you have classes implementing interface methods (which in Java 1.6 can be annotated with @Override, but in Java 1.5 can only be applied to methods overriding a superclass method).

To fix that:

Go to your project/ide preferences and set the java compiler level to 1.6 and also make sure you select JRE 1.6 to execute your program from eclipse.
