 The SlideME development team is pleased to announce the launch of a new
content portal for the discovery and delivery of Android applications:
 http://slideme.org  . This is a community portal with a focus on small
developers. You can upload Android applications, have it rated and commented
on, as well as find resources for promoting your skills and applications. We
also thought it was important to demonstrate the technology of discovering
and getting the content to a device, so we are also simultaneously releasing
the SlideME Community Edition Application Manager:
 http://code.google.com/p/slideme under Apache License 2.0. SAMce will allow 
you to discover, download and install from any JVending portal. You can find
more details on how this is done on the project site.

If you download SAMce, then by default, the client is hooked into SlideME
server so you can get started testing it without much effort. You can also
sign up for an account and submit your own content, which then become
available for others to see and download.

There is a pretty heavy focus in our group on open-source, so we were
careful in not tightly coupling the SAM client into the SlideME portal.  You
can set up your own instance of JVending   http://code.google.com/p/jvending 
for testing with SAM or even to start building your own community, although
we hope you will find ours useful.

If you are a Maven user, you can use  http://code.google.com/p/masa to 
directly deploy your Android applications to slideme.org (or your own
instance of JV) as part of your release process. We are trying to make the
process of getting the apps to users as painless as possible.

 Making it one whole year is really important. If you do not give up you will 
almost surely succeed.

 i dont mean to be mean. but many search engines,  portal sites and
software companies have gone with the wind after making it much longer
than one whole year.

it needs courage/wisdom/vision to survive in competing with 'official'
android app market, though.

nevertheless, i wish everyone here, incl. myself, never give up his
dream and eventually be successful and wealthy!!

1. iPhone versus Android securit

Any ideas about this?

Personally I think jail-breaking should be harder to do if the
root of trust started in HW.  I you can install anything, it seems
that all bets are off and that should be limited to "dev-phones".

2. Soft references freed too early

Hi there,

I'm using a caching mechanism for some objects which have a small
memory footprint but are computation expensive to instantiate. Also,
I'm using a loop to prebuffer all those objects on application
startup, so that they are already in my cache when my UI starts
displaying them later.

Right now, my objects are so few and so small that I might just keep
them all in memory. I first coded my caching based on standard
references and it worked just fine. But my objectsd might grow in size
and/or number, so I started using java.lang.ref.SoftReference inside
my cache so that they won't cause an OutOfMemoryException.

I have to admit that I never used soft references before, but after
reading I'm rather sure I understood them correctly.

Actually, something like that happens:
Object 1 is cached
Object 2 is cached
Object 3 is cached
Object 4 is cached
Object 5 is cached
Objects 1 to 4 are cleared by the GC
Object 6 is cached
Object 7 is cached
Object 8 is cached
Object 9 is cached
Objects 5 to 8 are cleared by the GC
and so on.

So each time the UI want to display e.g. Object 1, it's not in the
cache and I must recostruct it which takes about 300ms. Because of
this, my caching is completely pointless.

I know that this is legal behavior for Soft References: The GC may or
may not clear them when he encounters them, ideally dependant on the
amount of free memory, and it must clear all of them before an out of
memory exception is thrown.

The only odd thing is, my memory is mostly free, the heap grows up to
3 MB but the GC keeps the real usage under 2 MB most of the time.
After some time running, when each object has been reconstructed 2 or
3 times (and the user has been annoyed by the time it took), suddently
the GC changes its mind and stops clearing the refenreces, and all
objects (about 40) are kept in memory and the UI works smoothly and my
caching makes sense.

Is there any way to bias the way those references are handled, e.g.
tell the GC that it is totally ok to have a heap of 4 MB? In the end,
thats what the GC does automatically after 30 seconds of doint it
wrong.

with best regards,
Brian Schimmel
