Sending Android Data To Script?

Jul 16, 2011

I am developing an application that will involve interaction with a MySQL database whereby the posted data is handled using PHP. From an Android app, i send HttpRequests to a PHP file [at localhost], which creates a connection to a MySQL database and drops some data in a table.

The problem that I am having is that I have installed XAMPP [Apache server, MySQL] but when I start the Apache service, and start the Android application it doesn't fetch any data. What are the best requirements that will help me get out of this mess so that I may connect my Android app to a MySQL database then do some scripting using PHP?

Logging Into A Website From Android?

Basically I have a form in my android app that lets the user enter his/her username and password and then this is POSTED to a very simple login page made in PHP online. I then need to access a second pae which pulls down data from an xml file - in order to access this page the user must be logged in. The xml page that the user sees is dependent of their username.

On my login page I have

At the beginning of each page that checks login I have

Fastest Communication Between A Android?

Apr 1, 2011

Im building a android application that requires data from a PHP server. Lets say i have a text input on my web application. Whenever the users trigger a "onkeydown" i want to send the character to the Android application and my Android application will just output the current character. The web application will constantly send small "commands" to myAandroid application. I would like to know what is the fastest possible way to receive those send / receive those commands.

I see a few options on how this could be implemented.

1) My android application constantly polls the server to see if a message has been written.

2) My Android application would setup a socket server that the PHP script would connect and push the message to.

3) I guess this is extremely slow and inaccurate, but i guess i could use push notifications.

Is there any other alternatives ? and what would be the best solution?.

Sending Mail: Choice Between Sending Receipt, Or HTML Formatting

Jan 6, 2007

I'm using PHP's mail function to send out a message via email.

I would like for this email message to send a receipt when read as well as send an HTML formatted email. Both aspects are important to me.

I know this is a product of the mail header. This is the format I currently have:

mail(to, subject, body, "From: name <email>
Disposition-Notification-To: name<email>

This prompts the email program to send a reciept, but the email message is not in the HTML format, and even contains "Content-type:text/html;charset=utf-8" at the top of the body.

If I switch the order to this format:

mail(to, subject, body, "From: name <email>
Disposition-Notification-To: name<email>");

This sends the email with HTML formatting but does not prompt the sending of the receipt. I also get "Disposition-Notification-To: name<email>" at the top of the email message.

This tells me there is a problem in the transition between the headers, which currently is "".

What am I doing wrong?

Get Android Application Login To A Server?

I want to ask about the best way to let an Android application log in to a server (PHP). Do I have to use a session? I want to log in and send some information to the server and save that information in the database.

I currently use this:

HttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
HttpPost post = new HttpPost(path);

And then use JSON to send the data. I want a good way to verify the Android app identity to my server page.

Android - Webservice Is Always Returning A Value Of Null?

I was playing around with code that I found here. The I can only get my database to return a null json object. Here is my code.

public class TableTalkSplash extends Activity {
private InputStream is;
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

I have an apache webserver currently running a website and the .php file is in the same directory as the index.html file. I have a mySQL database that is running on the same box as the apache server. I really know very little about databases, but I do know that when I run SELECT * FROM dinner_info WHERE row_id = 1; It returns the correct information. So I am guessing my error is in the php. I've tried to replace the "host" with localhost and "username" with my username and "password" with my password. Any Ideas? if you need more information let me know

Native Android App Authenticate With Web Backend?

Sep 9, 2010

I'm working on developing a native android application to retrieve data for a user from my company's website. Because the data is specific to the user, I need to authenticate with our web server, but I'm unsure of the best way to go about this. I've been reading about REST/SOAP/HTML form auth, but I can't really find any definite 'this is how its done' anywhere. I know mobile apps do this kind of thing all the time - just look at facebook/skype/any email app - you have to login before you can do anything.

My question is - how should I architect the server side code (php) to easily allow me to authenticate a user from my android device? I'm fairly new to the 'web service' arena - does this fall into that category? Are there any tutorials you guys would recommend looking at?

Android - Web Server Connectivity And Authentication

I need my app to be able communicate with a web server. The problem is I want web server to respond only to requests made from real android phones. So, is there any way to make sure, that server works only with real phones? It should reject anything else to prevent spamming database from computers or emulators. Is it possible without sms verification? And how good is socket support in Android? If I want to write server software in C will it be able to communicate with Android based devices? Or I have to use php, or something like that?Maybe OpenSSL, but still I'm not sure.

Java - Access Database From Android?

May 26, 2010

I am working on a Android app and I have a dilemma. I have a list of Objects. I have to update each of these objects with a database. I have 2 methods:

Method 1: I can loop through the Objects. For each object I can connect to the server, update it, and then move on to the next Object, and so forth.

Method 2: I can store the Objects in a list, send the whole list to the server, update it on the server side, then return a list of updated objects.

My questions are:

Which method is faster? Which method is easier on the phone's battery?

Running AMP ( Apache Mysql ) On Android?

Jul 4, 2011

I currently work on an open source e-commerce platform [URL]. and I am trying to work out if I can deploy an offline version that can run on an tablet. I was hoping to use an iPad but this has proved very difficult (impossible?)

a) Does anyone know of an AMP (apache mysql php) version that will run on a tablet - eg. Android?

The idea is to have a local version of the online store that sales reps can use when selling to wholesale customers that will store the orders locally until they find a WiFi or 3G signal at which point it will merge the new records into the webserver.

If I could get Apache, MySQL and PHP to run locally (like it does using WAMP, MAMP, LAMP, etc.) it would be great as the app would be usable without an internet connection.

Apostrophe In Communicating Script From Android?

Jul 14, 2010

I am communicating with PHP web services in Android application. All the requests send from android are encoded with UTF-8 and the php scripts decodes it with utf-8. But when any request is send with apostrophe ' the decode function of php doesn't seem to work the way it should. For example, if I send the request as "Today's Horoscope" then its utf-8 encode will be "Today%27s+Horoscope". I tried to decode this with Android and it was successful. But in php it gives the same text after decoding.The database is MySql. Is this a problem with database or php? I am not sure about it but is there any workaround to this problem?

Download File From Android Browser

Mar 31, 2011

when the user clicks a button on the website, we want the user to be prompted to download the video. So after Googling for a while I figured out how to write a short php script using content-disposition:

$fn = 'videoFile.mp4';
header("Pragma: public");
header("Expires: 0");
header("Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0");
header("Cache-Control: private",false);
header('Content-Description: File Transfer');

So the button on the website points to this script. PC browsers seem to start the download with no problem. But the main focus of this is for Android phones. When you click to download the file on the default Android Browser, it fails and all it says is "Download Unsuccessful". Another thing is that on my computer (using Firefox), the download starts and at about 200MB, it just stops. It doesn't show any signs of failure, it just looks like it finished downloading. The actual file size is about 1GB.

I have played around with the content-type quite a bit, hoping that was the problem. I used "video/mpeg" and "application/force-download" and neither of them worked. Is there something I'm not doing write? Could the 2 problems be related? Should I be going about this a different way?

What Will Be The Android / Java Equivalent Of MD5 Function

Mar 31, 2011

I am calculating the MD5 in Android/Java as follows:

byte raw[] = md.digest();
StringBuffer hexString = new StringBuffer();
for (int i=0; i<raw.length; i++)
hexString.append(Integer.toHexString(0xFF & raw[i]));
v_password = hexString.toString();

However there's a mismatch with PHP's md5() function.

MD5 - PHP - Raw Value - catch12 - 214423105677f2375487b4c6880c12ae
MD5 - JAVA - Raw Value - catch12 - 214423105677f2375487b4c688c12ae

How is this caused and how can I solve it so that the both Android/Java and PHP generate exactly the same MD5 hash?

mysql_query("UPDATE sometable SET data_".$i."_".$k." = '10'
WHERE id = '".$_REQUEST['id']."'");

I have to use a loop becuase I'll be building up lots of generic types of data with the style "data_x". Unfortunately, this layout doesn't seem to update any fields in the database. Does this method create some type of space, or just simply disrupt a complete variable when read in a statement?
