Learn to build data-driven Android apps for enterprise systems
Android devices have moved beyond consumer applications into corporate and enterprise use. If you are eager to start building data-driven Android applications that integrate with enterprise systems, this book shows you how. The authors thoroughly explain how to use content providers to share data, adapters to display data, and web services to transmit data. They also show how to integrate applications with existing enterprise systems, secure data, and synchronize data. By the end of the book, you'll have a solid understanding of how to create data-intensive applications that today's businesses demand.
- Focuses on making and using simple databases for caching or syncing results for REST-based applications
- Covers ContentProvider, REST, concurrency, and networking
- Details ways to use Hibernate to create a RESTful web service and connect it to Android
- Helps you enhance performance by avoiding CRUD-over-the-Internet
- Gets you started writing backend cloud services that connect to Android
- Introduces a new open source and generic synchronization framework designed specifically to integrate with Android APIs
- Addresses the security-oriented aspect of application implementation

However at least half the companies I am in contact with use Microsoft Servers and I am missing any samples how to access WCF/Web API Servers from Android clients, how to use Microsoft Synch, how to synchronize a SQL Server DB with SQLite, ...
I had written two Android applications, so I was familiar with Java and Android basics, but was kinda roadblocked with how to move forward handling data and how to get it into a useful place off the device. This book helped me with this problem by providing a detailed walk-through of all major aspects of client and service development - that's right you'll also write code for App Engine and Dynamo DB.
The book explores Android data APIs in detail, from SQLite and Cursors to content providers, and then shows how to write back-end services that integrate directly into those APIs. It provides a neat tool for exploring data in Android content providers. It also looks in detail at building enterprise UIs so you'll be able to put the data together with its presentation.
One thing I learned was that service development has some interesting challenges and getting service data to integrate well with Android can be quite tricky - but the book has a solution for this as well so you dont actually have to write service code if you don't want to go there -
they provide a back end synchronization service and protocol that integrates right into an Android content providers and sync adapters. The service is flexible and allows you to push schema into it that an Android provider will automatically convert into SQLite tables, so you can spend time writing your application and really not have to do much at all to manage data. The service itself is open source and should port well to many cloud storage APIs - like whichever is cheapest. Setup the service, install a content provider and you'll spend your time writing UIs and working with cursors.
The book has a large scope with sections that build well on previous material - you will learn a lot about Android and back-end service development.
