Tutorial - Implementation of LocationProviderImpl class

Postby northvortex » Thu Dec 27, 2007 8:09 pm

Hi plusminus

I read your tutorial "Mock LocationProvider - Structure/Explanation (NMEA, $GPRMC)" and this sentence kept my attention:

When an LocationProvider is requested its directory is searched for the following files (in order):
class
kml
nmea <--- This is explained here
track


So, I started to research what I need to implement and install a Java class of my very own Location Provider. Then I found there were some guys working in the same concept:

http://groups.google.com/group/android- ... 4bbd84bc4a

So, I followed their instructions and implemented my Location Provider:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
Using java Syntax Highlighting
  1. import android.location.Location;
  2. import android.location.LocationProviderImpl;
  3. import android.location.LocationProvider;
  4. import android.location.Criteria;
  5.  
  6. public class MockLocationProvider
  7.    extends LocationProviderImpl
  8. {
  9.     // implementations of methods...
  10. }
Parsed in 0.031 seconds, using GeSHi 1.0.8.4


Note: I also created the directory structure and class file.

Later I figured out that even when my code chooses my "MockLocationProvider" implementation, Android always loads and uses this implementation "android.location.DummyLocationProvider".

I wonder if you can use your power to create a tutorial of implementing a Location Provider Java class. This Location Provider will allow us to read location information from a database or socket connection, and simulate more complex systems.

Thank you very much for your tutorials. I've learned a lot from them.

Have a Happy New Year!

About task manager

Postby phonix » Fri Dec 28, 2007 5:04 am

Is it possible to write the activity that can finish other activities on the device, or switch to other activity. I have know about IActivityManger that can show current running activities on the device, and I also notice it provides other methods that seem be able to manipulate other activities, but I don't know how to use them. So, I want the tutorial that can show the functionality of current normal task Manager.
Thanks :)

Hi,

There seems to be very little documentation regarding the DialerFilter. Would you please create a tutorial showing how it is used?

Thanks!

A GTalk sample for us. It could make voice. communication.

Postby fengForky » Mon Jan 07, 2008 4:41 pm

Just like the GTalk software.
If you have time. Do text messager and email(only gmail) notification.
If it could communicate with gtalk on PC, that's more great.
Thank you.
