 Hi All,

I am developing a Android Client which will ipload files to a server
using HTTPS POSRT with Multipart.
As i have read  there are two ways to do this:

1. Use HttpURLCoennection and embed the multipart data and then send
2. Use Apache provided mime for multipart and then use HTTPClient.

What is the recommeneded way from above.

I have read that

HTTPURLConnection is buggy in android
and the post implementatino is not that clean as we have to literally
create the data stream with boundaries.

HTTPClient: the code is cleaner and fewer :) , but we have add extra
jar file for multipart support.

Any recommenation in this will be helpful.

1. SQLiteStatement

Does anyone have any code or know of any code, or just know where to find
the procedures/functions,  that would allow me to set the value of
Parameters by Parameter Name (field Names) for prepared statements instead
of the index?

If I have the following:

myStatement = Db.compileStatement("Insert into myTable (load_id, load_name)
values (?, ?);

Ie. I want to do something like the following :

myStatement.parambyName(oad_id.value = 123;
myStatement.parambyName(oad_name.value = 456;

instead of :

myStatement.bindString(1, 23;
myStatement.bindString(1, 56;

I sure someone has done the work, and I would prefer not to duplicate it
if possible.

Thanks for any help.

2. rtsp/http Streaming

Hi People,

I need your help regarding streaming in android. I read some of the
previous discussions but I have a few doubts which i thought of
clarifying from you . Please help me with the following aspects:

(i) Does android supports RTSP and HTTP streaming ??

(ii) One discussion read -> "Streaming does not work in the emulator
environment due to some firewall issues in the emulator network
layer". Is this issue not resolved till now??

(iii) I used the api demo code available @ \ApiDemos\src\com\example

Here I set the path as->  path = "Rtsp://
OR as -> "path = "rtsp://"

THIS IS CRASHING @ mMediaPlayer.prepare(); (I am using darwin
streaming server)

This is playing fine in local playback. But, I am not able to
understand why it is crashing here. Please suggest.

(iv) The supported codecs are MPEG4 Video, AVC, MPEG4 Audio, AMR, and
H263. Am I correct??

I await your response. Kindly assist.
