Android Best Practices for User input, Background jobs, Performance, Security and privacy - Android

There are some practices that you can follow while developing android application. These are suggested by the android itself and they keep on improving with respect to time. These best practices include interaction design features , performance , security and privacy , compatibility , testing , distributing and monetizing tips. They are narrowed down and are listed as below.

Best Practices Android - GoforExam.inBest Practices - User input

Every text field is intented for a differnet job. For example, some textfields are for text and some are for numbers. If it is for numbers then it is better to dispaly the numeric keypad when that textfield is focused. Its syntax is.

          android:inputType="phone" />

Other then that if your field is for password , then it must show a password hint , so that the user can easily remember the password. It can be achieved as.

         android:inputType="textPassword" />

Best Practices - Background jobs

There are certain jobs in an application that are running in an application background. Their job might be to fetch some thing from the internet , playing music e.t.c. It is recommended that the long awaiting tasks should not be done in the UI thread and rather in the background by services or AsyncTask.

Both are used for doing background tasks , but the service is not affected by most user inteface life cycle events, so it continues to run in circumstances that would shut down an AsyncTask.

Best Practices - Performance 
Best Practices

Your application peformance should be upto the mark. But it should perform differently not on the front end , but on the back end when it the device is connected to a power source or charging. Charging could be of from USB and from wire cable.
When your device is charging itself , it is recommended to update your application settings if any, such as maximizing your refresh rate whenver the device is connected. It can be done as this.

IntentFilter ifilter = new IntentFilter(Intent.ACTION_BATTERY_CHANGED); 
Intent batteryStatus = context.registerReceiver(null, ifilter); 
// Are we charging / charged? Full or charging. 
int status = batteryStatus.getIntExtra(BatteryManager.EXTRA_STATUS, -1); 
// How are we charging? From AC or USB. 
int chargePlug = batteryStatus.getIntExtra(BatteryManager.EXTRA_PLUGGED, -1);

Best Practices - Security and privacy

It is very important that your application should be secure and not only the application , but the user data and the application data should also be secured. The security can be increased by the following factors.
1. Use internal storage rather then external for storing applications files
2. Use content providers wherever possible
3. Use SSl when connecting to the web
4. Use appropriate permissions for accessing different functionalists of device

Java knowledge for android

The Java programming language is one of the glorious tools that make programming Android a breeze compared with programming for other mobile platforms. Whereas other languages insist that you manage memory, deallocate and allocate bytes, and then shift bits around like a game of dominoes, Java has a little buddy called the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that helps take care of that for you. The JVM allows you to focus on writing code to solve a business problem by using a clean, understandable programming language
(or to build that next really cool first-person shooter game you’ve been dreaming of) instead of focusing on the plumbing just to get the screens to show up.

You’re expected to understand the basics of the Java programming language before you write your first Android application. If you’re feeling a bit rusty and need a refresher course on Java, you can visit the Java tutorials site at or you can find some tutorial here - JAVA

Cafe Babe? Or, what's in a name?

    The name Java is not an acronym. In particular, it does not stand for Just Another Vague Acronym. The language was originally called Oak, but the language lawyers worried about the name Oak Technology (at the time a maker of video cards). So a meeting was held (varying accounts of that meeting were gathered up by JavaWorld), and the name Java made the short list. The language lawyers approved, and the rest is history.

Most kinds of executable file formats have some kind of "magic number" that identifies them. For example, old PDP-11 executables for the UNIX system used the "magic number" 0407 (the real magic there, and the putative origin of the term, is that 0407 was a machine instruction for a jump forward of 7 words, i.e., past the 8-word-long executable header, to the first executable statement in the program). Some versions of the Berkeley UNIX memory allocator use the hexadecimal string 0xDEADBEEF, which is considered unlikely to occur in normal operation(!), to uniquely identify a section of memory that has been allocated to the user. Not to be outdone, the Java Virtual Machine uses the string of hexadecimal numbers 0xCAFEBABE to identify valid JVM files, a kind of homage to the origin of the Java concept. Just who is, or was, this "cafe babe"? You'd have to ask James Gosling!

Finally, it's been pointed out that the Java magic number also forms the "smiley" "]~:>"when viewed in ASCII.

0000000   J   ~   :   > nul etx nul   - soh   4  bs soh   !  bs soh   -
         cafebabe        0003002d        01b40801        a10801ad
One final word: the "cafebabe" magic number had also been used years earlier at the Mach project (Mach was almost forgotten until Apple chose to incorporate it into Mac OS X) to indicate their executable file format:

$ grep cafebabe /etc/magic
0       belong          0xcafebabe      compiled Java class data,...
0       belong          0xcafebabe      Mach-O fat file

Top Ten Things Every Java Programmer Should Know

These are in no particular order, but these are things that all Java programmers should probably know.
  1. Who Invented Java, and when?
    James Gosling, at Sun Labs, around 1992; the group was building a set-top box and started by "cleaning up" C++ and wound up with a new language and runtime.
  2. What does Java stand for?
    Java is not an acronym (not even Just Another Vague Acronym :-)). The language was first named Oak, after the tree outside James' window. The lawyers found another language called Oak so, legend has it, the gang went out to the local cafe to discuss names and wound up naming it after the beverage Java (which is in turn named after the island of Java). Possible confirmation of this theory.
  3. What is the JLS?
    JLS is The Java Language Specification. Every developer should buy or download (free) this specification and read it, a bit at a time.
  4. How do changes get into Java?
    JCP (Java Community Process).
  5. Why is there no printf-like function in Java?
    Actually there are! This was fixed in Java 5; see Java Cookbook (2nd Edition) Chapter 9. Java 5 (J2SE 1.5) includes printf (and scanf), String.format(), and lots more.
  6. What is the GOF book?
    The Gang Of Four book is entitled Design Patterns, by Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson and John Vlissides. This is a very good book. You should read it. Not when you're just learning Java, but when you've let it sink in for about six months.
  7. What other Java book do I need?
  8. What is the Java Cookbook?
    That's a book of Java recipes (for the programming language, not the coffee, but some bookstores still wind up listing it under Cooking).
  9. What other Java sites do I need to know about?
  10. What else do I need to know?
    Everything! But nobody can know everything about Java - the subject is now too vast. Imagine somebody saying that they know everything about every single Microsoft product and technology. If someone like that calls me, I'm always out.
