I just read the wiki page about Android Runtime (ART) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_Runtime

So it looks like ART is not a virtual machine (unlike Dalvik). I mean ART is an environment that executes something native to it. After reading the wiki page I thought that "something" was an ELF file. That's how I understood it from the figure on the wiki page. But I complied a small hello world application, installed it on my emulator (Nexus 5 with Android 7.0), and found no ELF files in /data/app/com.sample. There was a directory called /data/app/com.sampleoat/x86 with the single file base.odex in it. Why?

ART is a virtual machine in the sense that the APK file you provide is architecture-independent (most of the time) and ART optimizes it for the target device.

The Android ecosystem is vast, specially if you're a developer. Despite the varying rate of development of each of its individual components, there's constant progress in each one of them and it can be hard to keep track of it all.
For this purpose, I've compiled the following list with all the relevant links to keep up-to-date with the latest of each thing Android.

Contributions are welcome. Re-share please.
awesome-android-release-notes - Awesome Android Release Notes is a useful directory for a developer to keep up-to-date with all the things related with Android software development.

The Android Dashboards were updated 2 days ago.
Looking at the Platform Versions section: Froyo has left the graph, Nougat 7.1 has entered and Marshmallow is reaching a third of the pie.

About a year ago we decided to change our minSdkVersion to API 16 (JB1) for all our new developments. Now we have 86.3% that's API 19 (Kitkat) or higher. I was wondering, what do you usually use as minSdkVersion (in general, not when you need specific APIs) and what are your thoughts about raising the bar to a higher minSdk?

+Ian Lake Thanks for this information. Hopefully this might be the logic behind.

Your app is performing internet related tasks like calling web API, uploading pic to server and etc. To avoid crash in app, it's better to put a check that Internet is connected or not before performing internet related tasks.

If you are developing an android application that perform internet related operations like calling web API, loading web page in Web View, uploading profile pic and etc. So before performing any internet related tasks it is better to first check that your device is connected to internet or not .

Guys, I am thinking to start using Kotlin for an Android application project. Any advice?

Number 1) Join the Kotlin Slack, we are a friendly and helpful bunch.... http://kotlinslackin.herokuapp.com/

I have been using Kotlin for Android development for a few months now and have had no problems with auto complete etc.

I did start with a clean download and install of Studio though.

My only problem now is going back to Java. Having to type out Type names, semi colons and all that null checking everywhere....

Does Android Gradle Plugin support code coverage for java Unit test case?

I know we can get code coverage for AndroidTest but is it possible for Javat Unit test?

I found two types of build.gradle files in my Android project. One for project and one for Module.

How they differ in practical example?

Which is better file to keep test dependencies?

By default, module one has default Junit dependencies. Should we remove that part of we opt project build file to have dependencies?

Why Google team provide by default dependencies to Module but not project?

Slow Android Studio

I am an experienced C/C# programmer, new to Android.
I recently installed the Android Studio 2.2.3 ('AS') and started to learn to develop phone applications.
The AS application seems to run significantly slower than my installed MS Visual Studio I am used to.
Is this normal? Has anyone experienced the same?

My computer:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz, 2501 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64bit
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB
Total Physical Memory 3.86 GB
Available Physical Memory 1.34 GB
Total Virtual Memory 11.8 GB
Thanks

Many features speeding up the build process require more RAM. Gradle is constantly running in the background in addition to the IDE itself and needs at least 2GB to run dex-in-process. A browser easily uses 2GB of RAM too. And the OS itself uses RAM; Windows 10 certainly uses more than Linux.
It is possible to develop with a 4GB machine if you are reducing the other apps to a minimum and don't use the emulator, but I recommend 8GB. 16GB is probably too much. 4GB machines were already sold 7 years ago...

Just thought about how to make the web based login screen for my app a bit more interesting. The result is using the status bar as an progress bar… What do you think about that?

+Enrico D'Ortenzio It turned out that there must have been some sort of leftover on my phone. A phone reboot fixed the problem. Not a satisfying fix but at least I've moved on.

Layout question

I have an app with a lot of settings and all settings can be set up globally and can be overwritten on an per item base. So I decided to have settings that look like on the image I attached. Global settings look the same just without the checkbox "use custom" so the attached image shows the per item settings where you can enable to overwrite the global setting with the current per item setting for each setting.

What I need

I need settings that show what they are, that can be changed AND that can be enabled and disabled.

Question

Does anyone have an idea for a good layout for this? Has anyone seen something like this in any app where it does look good?

Any other ideas?

Hi,

Is there a place to offer feedback (complaints) about android studio and the help pages ?

I'm absolutely fed up. This is by far the worst programming environment I've ever had to deal with, by orders of magnitude.

I know the play store isn't google's primary revenue stream but they must be making decent money from it. Every developer who gives up and walks away is money lost.
