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

As the programming phase is almost finished, we have entered the design phase. We are working on our 3D design and plan to buy tracking belts and sprocket wheels. At the same time we are discussing the sponsorship of the project with RobotShop.com & hope we receive a positive answer from them. You can read full reports on our activities & have full access to our codes and designs on Super Crawler worklog at Robotica Osloensis forum or the project weblog.
I am now a member of student robotics community at university of Oslo, called Roboitca Osloensis. I have joined the board team and currently I am in charge of all projects at the community. Our first project will be my summer project from last year( Super Crawler ), which we did not finish it …
I got some new wild ideas about how actually the hardware part of the climbing robot should look like. Well these are nothing that would come to real world but just some drawing form me in my free time …
I have already made a login system successfully with ability to login for users and root. The login system can redirect users to user pages and root to administration page. The root user has the power to delete or update the user informations(facing some difficulties here). The goal with this part was gaining experience with PHP and Mysql database.
Next step in this project will be debugging and securing the login system and designing the right database tables for the main project(game).
UioToolbar Version 0.3 is available. For downloading the Firefox extension click here, for source files click here. This version contains upgrade for Firefox 3.5. I have added new buttons for searching at UiO’s library. I have also added useful links to different faculties and IT support and webmail at university. More info about UiO Toolbar can be found here.
Recently I have been talking to a colleague to make a PHP based website with MySql database. The code with the database is supposed to make lists over users who play a roleplaying game online. More info about project later. Most likely it is going to be an opensource project.
My friend (Jim) and I are finally finished with coding for a compiler in Java. The compiler is implemented in Java to run the code written in a language called Rusc wich is a kind of simplified C. The language contains integer, variables, functions, IF, Else, While, for, expressions, names, libraries of pre-coded functions. We finished testing and running the code. This code was written for a course at university of Oslo, IFI, called INF2100-Programming project. The code is available here.
My website about fish keeping(specially Discus fish) with a Forum is back on track once again. After I didn’t get to take back my old domain name with .com postfix(www.mahibaz.com) back, I had to start over with a .ir postfix(www.mahibaz.ir). After all the website is in Persian and it doesn’t do anything to have a .ir(iran) domain name 🙂
So the project is back on track with the domain name www.mahibaz.ir and we have our fish keeping forum back online as well.
Mahibaz in persian means a person whose life is just fish keeping.
