HTTPS POST (SSL) with Multipart - HTTPURLConnection or HTTPClient(Apache library)

 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.

2. Problem in Android-JNI IPC

Hello folks,

I have implemented a JNI layer for communication between the Android
Java Application and Android Native C code.
However, we are facing issues with IPC in this JNI layer.

I tried the following IPC approaches:

1. Socket in JNI layer: C Sockets to communicate with the underlying C
based processes.
                                I get an error in bind().

Sample code:

   fd_recv_es = socket(AF_INET,SOCK_DGRAM,0);

   if (0 > fd_recv_es)


       return (FAILURE);


   bzero(&es_recv_addr, sizeof(es_recv_addr));

   es_recv_addr.sin_family = AF_INET;

   es_recv_addr.sin_port = htons(self_port);

   es_recv_addr.sin_addr.s_addr = inet_addr(self_ip.str);

   memset(&(es_recv_addr.sin_zero), '\0', 8);

   if ( -1 == bind( fd_recv_es,(struct sockaddr*)(&es_recv_addr),
sizeof(struct sockaddr_in)))   // Fails here


       return (FAILURE);


2. Message Q in JNI layer: Linux based message queue to communicate
with the underlying C based processes.

                                   I get an error in creating the
message queue.

Sample Code:

      struct my_msgbuf buf;

      int msqid, i;

      key_t key;

      if ((key = ftok("/data/IPC/dummy", 'B')) == -1)





      if ((msqid = msgget(key, 0644 | IPC_CREAT)) == -1)     // Fails





Both these approaches work perfectly fine when I use them in an
Android C executable,
and we are getting this problem only when we use them in a JNI DLL.

The linking command for the building JNI DLL is:
ALIB       := $(NDK_BASE)/toolchain/arm-eabi/lib/gcc/arm-eabi/4.2.1/
$(CC) -nostdlib -Wl,-soname, -Wl,-shared,-Bsymbolic
-L$(NDK_BASE)/lib $^ $(LIBS) -o -Wl,--no-undefined

Has anyone faced a similar issues with IPC(with C executables) in JNI
Also, are there are some other flags required for building a JNI DLL
that I've missed out on.
Any pointers in this direction shall be really helpful.
