This is a summay of the tricks I have learned making an application called courseApp project. This application was developed in the Mobile Information Systems that I took at University of Oslo. Eclipse is a very good tool to use for Android development. To start with you need to download Andriod SDK. After installing both of these(and ofcourse Java Development Kit, JDK which is a pre-requirement for both of these), you need to make Eclipse and Android SDK talk together. This is done by a plugin called “ADT plugin for Eclipse” from Google. You can read more about how to install this plugin by clicking here. In case of Android SDK installation(the exe file) doesn’t recognize JDK on your computer, you can simply download the zip file and extract it. Don’t forget appending that folder to the %PATH% environment variable. Now some more tips follows :
This is a school project for a course(INF5261 – Development of mobile information systems and services) I take at department of Informatics at University of Oslo. courseApp is an android mobile application which allows the users(students at University of Oslo) to add their courses to this application and respectivley receive the latest updates about the course on their cellphone. We also are thinking about integerating the time & place of the courses with the students android calender. We have plans for further development of this application but this is all dependent on if we can get access to the database in StudentWeb. If we do so we would be able to let students add courses to navigate through the courses and join the course by just one touch click …
We have thought to have following functionalities on our program(numbers show also priority).
- My courses
- Latest messages on course page
- Warning on Email
- Integration with Android Calender
- Friends taking same course
