1 Programming with Android: Network Operations Luca Bedogni Marco Di Felice Dipartimento di Scienze dellInformazione Università di Bologna

2 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android 2 Outline Network operations: Download Manager Network operations: HTTP Responses Network operations: HTTP Requests Network operations: HTTP Client Network operations: WebView and WebSettings Network operations: WebView Network operations: TCP/UDP Sockets

3 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 3 Android: WebView Usage WebView A View that displays web pages, including simple browsing methods (history, zoom in/out/ search, etc). Implemented by the WebView class public WebView(Context contex) Main methods: public void loadUrl(String url) load the HTML page at url public void loadData(String data, String mimeType, string encoding) load the HTML page contained in data

4 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 4 Android: WebView Usage

5 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 5 Android: WebView Usage By default, the WebView UI does not include any navigation button …However, callbacks methods are defined: public void goBack() public void goForward() public void reload() public void clearHistory()

6 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 6 Android: WebView Usage It is possible to modify the visualization options of a WebView through the WebSettings class. public WebSettings getSettings() Some options: void setJavaScriptEnabled(boolean) void setBuildInZoomControls(boolean) void setDefaultFontSize(int)

7 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 7 Android: HTTP Classes HTTP (HyperText Tranfer Protocol): Network protocol for exchange/transfer data (hypertext) Request/Resonse Communication Model HEAD GET POST PUT DELETE TRACE CONNECT MAIN COMMANDS

8 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 8 Android: HTTP Classes HttpClient Interface for an HTTP client HttpRequest Interface for an HTTP request HttpResponse Interface for an HTTP response ResponseHandler Handler that creates an object from an HTTP Response HttpContext Context of the HTTP Request (request+response+data)

9 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 9 Android: HTTP Classes HttpClient Interface for an HTTP client (DefaultHttpClient implementation of an HttpClient) HttpClient client=new DefaultHttpClient(); Main method: The public method execute(…) performs an HTTP request, and allows to process an HTTP reply from the HTTP server. abstract T execute(HttpUriRequest request, ResponseHandler responseHandler) One of the signature of execute()

10 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 10 Android: HTTP Classes HttpRequest Interface for an HTTP request Two implementations: HttpGet implements the GET HTTP method HttpPost Implements the POST HTTP method HttpGet request=new HttpGet(String address); HttpGet request=new HttpGet(URI address);

11 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 11 Android: HTTP Classes ResponseHandler Interface for creating an object from an HttpResponse, obtained after having executed an HttpRequest. public abstract T handleResponse (HttpResponse res) Method to override Generally, is a String (HTML code) …

12 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 12 Android: HTTP Classes HttpPost Implements the POST HTTP method List par=new ArrayList () par.add(new BasicNameValuePair(name,Marco); HttpEntity postEntity=new UrlEncodedFormEntity(par); request.setEntity(postEntity); Encapsulating a parameter … HttpPost request=new HttpPost(String address); HttpPost request=new HttpPost(URI address);

13 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 13 Android: HTTP Classes Basic HTTPClient Request-Response Application … HttpClient client=new DefaultHttpClient(); HttpGet request=new HttpGet(); request.setURI(http//www.cs.unibo.it); try { client.execute(request, responseHandler); } catch (ClientProtocolException e) { e.printStackTrace(); } catch (IOException e) { e.printStackTrace(); }

14 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 14 Android: HTTP Classes Basic HTTPClient Request-Response Application … class MyResponseHandler implements ResponseHandler { @Override public String handleResponse(HttpResponse response) { InputStream content=response.getEntity().getContent(); byte[] buffer=new byte[1024]; int numRead=0; ByteArrayOutputStream stream=new ByteArrayOutputStream(); while ((numRead=content.read(buffer))!=-1) stream.write(buffer, 0, numRead); content.close(); String result=new String(stream.toByteArray()); return result; }

15 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 15 Android: Download Manager DownloadManager System service that handles long-run HTTP downloads. DownloadManager dm=(DownloadManager) getSystemService(DOWNLOAD_SERVICE); The client can specify the file to be downloaded through an URI (path). Download is conducted in background (with retries) Broadcast Intent action is sent to notify when the download completes.

16 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 16 Android: Download Manager Request request=new DownloadManager.Request(Uri.parse(address)); The Request class is used to specify a download request to the Download Manager. long enqueue(DownloadManager.Request) Cursor query(DownloadManager.Query) ParcelFileDescriptor openDownloadedFile(long) Main methods of the DownloadManager

17 Luca Bedogni, Marco Di Felice – Network programming with Android (c) Luca Bedogni 2012 17 Android: TCP/IP Communication TCP/UDP Communication Android applications can use java.net.Socket facilities. Use socket-based programming like in Java … Class DatagramSocket UDP Socket Classes Socket/ServerSocket TCP socket Read/Write on Sockets through InputStream/OutputStream
