Transcript of "Android General information"

  1. 1. Created By. Jainik B Patel 112332 Prashant A Goswami 112344 Gujarat Vidyapith Computer Department Ahmedabad
  2. 2. What is Android? • A software platform and operating system for mobile devices. • Based on the Linux kernel. • Founded in 10/2003 in Palo Alto, California. • Developed by the Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears and Chris White. • Bought by Google in 8/2005. • Allows writing managed code in the Java language. • Android platform was announced on 5 November 2007 with the founding of OHA • The First Android Powered Phone was sold in October 2008. • Goal: “smarter mobile devices that are more aware of it’s owner’s location and preferences.” Introduction
  3. 3. Open Handset Alliance (OHA)
  4. 4. Features  Android supports wireless communication using:-  Android is a multi-process system, in which each application (and parts of the system) runs in its own process.  3G Networks  4G Networks  802.11 Wi-Fi Networks  Bluetooth Connectivity
  5. 5. Features  Interface that is better then the previous touch screen mobiles.  User gets millions of applications that user can not get in any other mobile operating system.  Android supports advanced audio/video/still media formats such as MPEG-4, H.264, MP3, and AAC, AMR, JPEG, PNG, GIF.  Developing an android application is not tough using SDK(standard development kit) and java emulator we can easily develop applications that we want.
  6. 6. Versions
  7. 7. 7 Architecture
  8. 8. Linux Kernel • Note that Android based on a Linux kernel not a Linux OS • Supplies Security, Memory management, Process management, Network stack and Driver model • Acts as an abstraction layer between the hardware and the rest of the software stack
  9. 9. Libraries • Run in system background • Using C/C++ Language • 4 types of Libraries – Bionic Libc, system C libraries – Function Libraries, supporting multimedia, web browser, SQLite... – Native Servers – Hardware Abstraction Libraries
  10. 10. Core Libraries • System C library, the standard C system library, tuned for embedded Linux-based devices • Media Libraries, support playback and recording of many popular audio and video formats, as well as image files, including MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, and PNG • Surface Manager, manages access to the display subsystem and seamlessly composites 2D and 3D graphic layers from multiple applications • WebKit, a modern web browser engine which powers both the Android browser and an embeddable web view • SGL, the underlying 2D graphics engine • 3D libraries, an implementation based on OpenGL ES 1.0 APIs • FreeType , bitmap and vector font rendering • SQLite , a powerful and lightweight relational database engine
  11. 11. Android Runtime • The core of Android platform • Dalvik Virtual Machine – Register-based – Executes files in the Dalvik Executable (.dex) format • Java core Libraries – Provides most of the functionality of the Java programming language.
  12. 12. Android Runtime (cont.) • The functions of Java core libraries rely on the Dalvik VM and the underlying Linux kernel • Multiple Dalvik VMs may run at the same time • Every Android application runs in its own process, with its own instance of the Dalvik virtual machine – The "dx" tool in Android SDK can transform compiled JAVA class into the .dex format
  13. 13. Dalvik Virtual Machine • Android custom implementation virtual machine – Provides application portability and runtime consistency – Runs optimized file format (.dex) and Dalvik bytecode – Java .class / .jar files converted to .dex at build time. ‾ Every application (.apk) gets a unique Linux user ID and group ID ‾ Apps run with their unique user ID ‾ Each running app gets its own dedicated process and a dedicated Dalvik VM ‾ Each app has its own storage location in /data/data/<app>, only accessible by the unique user ID and group ID • Designed for embedded environment – Highly CPU-optimized bytecode interpreter – Efficiently Using runtime memory • Core Libraries – Core APIs for Java language provide a powerful, yet simple and familiar development platform
  14. 14. Application Framework • Simplify the reuse of components – Applications can publish their capabilities and any other application may then make use of those capabilities • Applications is a set of services and systems, include – Views system, content providers, resources manager and so on
  15. 15. Application Framework (cont.) • Activity Manager, manages the lifecycle of applications and provides a common navigation backstack • Notification Manager, enables all applications to display custom alerts in the status bar • Resource Manager, providing access to non-code resources such as localized strings, graphics, and layout files • Content Providers, access data from other applications (such as Contacts), or to share their own data • Views, used to build an application, including lists, grids, text boxes, buttons, and even an embeddable web browser
  16. 16. Applications • A set of core applications shipped with Android platform – an email client, SMS program, calendar, maps, browser, contacts, and others • All written in Java • Our applications are in the same level as these applications
  17. 17. 3.1 Development requirements  • Java • Android SDK • Eclipse IDE (optional)   Software development
