 hi,

I have just found one google doc for ANR.i am using thread class to
retrieve data from server.and displaying it to app.

so i just want to that whether i should use Thread or should forget
the Thread because android is providing Asynctask.

can anyone elaborate this,pls?

 The only difference is that AsyncTask uses a thread pool to do its work.  If
you use a thread, you will have a slight overhead of creating and starting
the thread.  However, they both work relatively the same.

 In my experience, (I have used both), you need to create a Hander object to
change something from the procedure that is running inside your Thread.

Whereas, if you use the AsycTask, there will be call backs to do UI
updations... I also agree with Miguel Morales.

 hi,

i have read this from google doc,"ANR"(Application not responding) happens
when ,

I)main thread("event thread"/"ui thread") doesnt respond to input events in
5 sec
ii)broadcast receiver doesnt finish in 10 seconds.


in my application flow is like

classA >thread>callback to classA with data>from classA activity is called

which is called the main thread in above scenario?
in this case what happens?

 Keep in mind that Asynctask is provided for finite tasks. If you need
to have a thread which should run forever, don't use Asynctask, but
use Thread.

 Using Asynctask to download files is fine I think (given that you
handle correctly the error cases; e.g. target server might be down etc
etc).
