db4o Object Database Android Demos Updated

 Hi.

For those of you who never heard about db4o -> it's an Android
complaint open source object database with a thriving user community
( http://developer.db4o.com ). It allows you to store/retrieve POJOs
directly (no tables, no rows, no cursors) without sacrificing speed,
flexibility and reliability.

I'm sending this message to the list because I wanted to let you know
that we've updated the PasswordSafe and MapMe Android demos to work
with both the latest stable version of db4o (v7.4) and Android SDK
(v1.1 r1).

By checking out these examples (tutorial and videos included) you'll
realize how easy and straight forward it's to persist POJOs rather
than relying solely on SQLite.

For more information see:
 http://developer.db4o.com/blogs/community/archive/2009/03/11/db4o-android-demos-updated.aspx 

Enjoy!!

 Will it actually simplify content providers I though there was some  
reason why we can't use object persistence on them.

 It just happened the content providers were using the bare bone sql approach
for their early versions. Future versions might  provide ORM as an alternate
persistence strategy within content providers. But given the current design
you are ofcourse free to do whatever in your implementation, including using
dbo or otherwise.

take care,
Muthu Ramadoss.

 Any idea which is faster and which has a smaller footprint? db4o or  
extremeDB?

 Both have an embedded version, so the memory footprint would be smaller in
both cases.

DB4O is open source and has a java api. I think ExtremeDB is C/C++.

1. Changing Google image server

I am looking for a way to change which Google server our Android app
will look too when pulling in imagery. We have an Enterprise Google
server purchased from Google that will serve up imagery. Does anyone
know of anyway to get Android pointing to that server instead of the
public Google server?

2. More MediaPlayer questions

I've been googling and searching the groups for answers and haven't
been able to find anything concrete.  I have several questions
regarding the use of MediaPlayer if somebody can help me out:

1. I need to package an audio resource with my application, which I
have done in /res/raw.  However, it appears that I must use
MediaPlayer.create() to use a resource ID rather than
MediaPlayer.setDataSource().  I found some references to creating a
URI to raw via "android:resource://package/raw/name" and
"android:resource//package/" + resourceId.   However, both of these
tries resulted in IOExceptions during setDataSource.  I'm assuming due
to a bad URI.  Is it possible to get a valid URI in SDK 1.0 that will
point to a raw resource?

2. I'm writing an app that does some tracking and will typically go
hand in hand with the music player running.  Part of my app will, at
times, need to play sound on top of the running audio stream.  Is
there any way for my app to get ahold of and temporarily pause the
music stream so that the user will be able to clearly hear my audio?
Is this prevented because it's considered 'bad behavior'?  (I hope not
because in my case its actually good and desirable behavior)

3. I see that I can set the audio stream but is there any
documentation/discussion/details on what the various streams are, how
they are used, and how they interact with one another?   For example,
as mentioned above I want to be able to pause/override/interrupt a
music playing stream with my notification but I would NOT want to have
my notification play if they are on an active phone call.   Also, is
there any doc/discussion/detail on which methods can be invoked on the
mediaplayer at what times?  As I experiment I seem to get a lot of
'invalid media state' errors when I try things with very little
indication as to what state it is in and how I get it from the bad
state to an acceptable state for the method in question.

Thanks for any assistance.  I've been researching for a couple of days
but all the information I can find is very sparse or appears to be
things that were valid in early SDKs but may not be any longer.

Thanks,

Greg
