  14. 14. Architecture
  15. 15. 15 APPLICATIONS  Android provides a set of core applications:  Email  SMS Program  Calendar  Maps  Browser  Contacts  Etc  All applications are written using the Java language.
  16. 16. 16 code images files UI layouts constants Autogenerated resource list Common file structure for Apps
  17. 17. 17 GUI
  18. 18. 18 APPLICATION FRAMEWORK  Enabling and simplifying the reuse of components  Developers have full access to the same framework APIs used by the core applications.  Users are allowed to replace components.  Each application can publish its capabilities which other apps can use
  19. 19. 19 LIBRARIES  Including a set of C/C++ libraries used by components of the Android system  Exposed to developers through the Android application framework
  20. 20. 20 RUNTIME  Core Libraries  Providing most of the functionality available in the core libraries of the Java language  APIs  Data Structures  Utilities  File Access  Network Access  Graphics etc.
  21. 21. 21 RUNTIME  Software Development kit (Dalvik Virtual Machine )  Providing environment on which every Android application runs  Each Android application runs in its own process, with its own instance of the Dalvik VM.  Dalvik has been written such that a device can run multiple VMs efficiently. .dex format is optimized for minimal memory footprint.
  22. 22. Challenges  CPU typically runs 500-600 Mhz  RAM available to an App may only be a few megabytes  Disk (flash) access is very slow  Lifecycle - apps must pause/quit often, and restore to give the illusion that they are always running  UI design  typical screen may be HVGA (320x480)  may be in portrait or landscape  very high DPI - small text may not be readable  touch resolution is very low (~25 pixel)  Network access may be slow and (very) intermittent
  23. 23. 23  Highly customizable  Services can run in the background  Notifications let you know of background events  Multitasking  Widget  Can install a modified ROM  Easy access to thousands of applications via the Google Android Android App Market  Google Maniac  Advertising  Continuous Internet connection Merits Demerits
