  • 1. 1 1 INTRODUCTION Communication is most important thing in modern era because without it the job of any organization cannot run smoothly and calmly. The technology regarding communication and electronics rising day by day. There are many software and hardware have been developed to aid the area of communication such that it will aid the working mechanism of the people. The applications we have developed basically help the people of the same organization in fulfilling the gap of communication among them. There are mainly three parts included in our application namely desktop client, android client, web client. The brief introduction of each part is described below. Figure: System Diagram 1.1 Desktop Client The number of laptop user increases day by day. Keeping this thing in mind we developed the application that helps in communication via laptop or desktop to other gadgets like android smart phone, etc. The application used in desktop is CREATE NOTES TASKS SCHEDULE DESKTOP CLIENT GOOGLE GCM APPLICATION SERVERMOBILE CLIENT CREATE NOTES TASKS SCHEDULE WEB CLIENT ………
  • 2. 2 based on server-client architecture in which desktop acts as client and communicates with the server for messaging service. The desktop client has its own database in which it stores the incoming data from the server and also retrieves the stored data for processing. The desktop client contain extra services such as Tasks, Schedule, Notes, and Contacts, which are useful in daily routines. User can save their tasks which they need to perform later in the Task service. The Schedule service stores the schedules which are important to user and must be reminded to the user. These schedules can be anniversary, birthdays or any other important occasions. Notes store the notes which can be useful to user. The user can store the important contact in the contact service. 1.2 Android Client The android application for Automate Plus project is designed for automation of tasks. The Automate Plus android client is capable of independent functioning but it requires internet connectivity for full functioning. The client maintains its own database for data storage required by the application. The database stores tables for cloud data, phone schedules, task schedules, etc. We have used latest android development trends and tools. The application is designed for Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0. It exploits open source tools and codes for backward compatibility. The backward compatibility is extended to Froyo 2.2. The project uses “Sherlock Action Library”. Automate plus is focused for taking notes, tasks and SMS scheduling, relay and sync of cloud messages. The SQLite3 database has been used for different data storage. There is no need for SQLite database deployment as it is already incorporated by the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Though android system supports file handling mechanism, we have not adopted it as it is not efficient .SQLite is used keeping in mind its small sized storage and its efficiency for data storage and retrieval. 1.3 Web Client It is important part of our project and it will help organization very well. Web client is similar to the website through which administrator of an organization can send message to all user of the related group. Similarly one user can send message to the administrator via this client.
  • 3. 3 2 LITERATURE REVIEW Nobody even think about their life without electronics gadgets in the modern world. There are nearly four lakhs applications available for the android smart phone which reflects the popularity of the smart phone. Similarly in each and every part of an organization there is important role of desktop. So these are the thing that inspires us to develop this project. 2.1 Objective 2.1.1 General Objective  The general objective of this project is to develop a Client- Server application for android smart phone and desktop as a part of BE syllabus in computer engineering, facilitating the synchronization of messages across multiple clients-android client, desktop client and web client. 2.1.2 Specific Objective  To create notes, tasks, and schedules in different clients  To create and schedule an SMS.  To manage the schedule and notes by different user  To provide ease for communication among different user having different gadgets.
  • 4. 4 3 DESIGN APPROACH Basically while developing this project application we proceed through many design approach depending upon the gadget. So different design approaches are mentioned below depending upon the clients 3.1 Methodology 3.1.1 Desktop Client The main objective of the desktop client is to communicate with server which handles our message for passing to another client. We develop our desktop client application in J2EE platform because it is rich in library and facilitates various facilities for development of the application. We code our application in Eclipse IDE which provides great facilities of debugging and testing during development. As we mentioned above our desktop client has its own database which is deployed by using MySQL database server. There are basically eight tables in our database design namely:  Admin_Info  Message_Info  Contact  Loginfo  Note  Schedule  Task  User _Info As we mentioned above every group has at least one administrator that’s why we use Admin_Info table to hold the information about administrator of each group. Similarly Message_Info keep the record of the incoming and outgoing messages from or to the server. Our desktop client uses for keeping record of contact of people, schedule of job etc. In order to fulfillment this requirement we use contact table, note table, task table etc. To send message to the server we use Apache HTTP component and apache service. In order to connect to the server we use PostMethod class. To provide good interaction to the user we use java GUI component. We use different method of java library to give attractive GUI.

  • 6. 6 3.1.2 Android Client Originally we intended to use Android Cloud to Device Messaging (C2DM), a service that helps developers send data from servers to their applications on Android devices. The service provides a simple, lightweight mechanism that servers can use to tell mobile applications to contact the server directly, to fetch updated application or user data. The C2DM service handles all aspects of queuing of messages and delivery to the target application running on the target device. But unfortunately, during the time of development the service was deprecated and the google announced another service, the upgraded version of C2DM, Google Cloud Messaging(GCM) service. Following are the core technologies that we are going to use in developing our android application. 3.1.2.1 Server Technologies  Tomcat is enterprise class, robust web server which comes bundled with Java Servlet and JSP that provides a java application server environment  One of the other major issues why we are going chose Tomcat is Scalability. Presently Java is our core technology used for portability and in future if we want to make our application be reachable to users using Microsoft products we would be having no conflicts between the servers because Tomcat can be deployed as either a standalone product with its own internal Web server or in conjunction with several other Web servers.  It adheres to the latest standards, which expands the security features. Configuration, tuning and maintenance are lot easier than compared to other prevailing web servers.  Since we are not going for enterprise java beans in our project we don’t feel the necessity of going for other application servers like J2EE Glassfish Server or JBOSS .We are basically looking for a reliable web server which would be compatible with both the front-end and back- end technologies we are using and our ultimate choice is Apache’s Tomcat Web Server.

There is no need for SQLite database deployment as it is already incorporated by the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Though android system supports file handling mechanism, we have not adopted it as it is not efficient .SQLite is used keeping in mind its small sized storage and its efficiency for data storage and retrieval. 3.1.2.3 Software technologies are:  J2EE Eclipse IDE  Android SDK

  • 13. 13 4 RESULTS The project is focused on the keeping the data related to the communication and reminder for the user. One user can communicate through this application to another user or to the organization itself via the server. We have successfully completed our Android Client. Our Android Client can send message to users of a group as a Admin. Also User can send message to admin of that group. Admin can view user of that group and also delete them. Our web server is also completed but still it is not deployed on the web. We are still running the server in localhost. Web Client is not completed yet as expected, but it can still send message to users i.e. Android client and Desktop client using its admin account. 4.1 ScreenShots

Further, we learnt to develop internet based applications. We learnt to communicate via internet using internet protocols. We also learnt about client- server architecture. We came to know more about cloud messaging services of Google. 5.2 Further Work We need to enhance the Graphical User Interface of the applications. The functions need to be made more efficient. For web client, the service for receiving messages has to be included. The schedules, notes, contacts and other data need to be synchronized between android and desktop client having same user. Furthermore, email service can enhance usability of application.
