How to start with Android development [DSP2017 #07]

In this part I want to show how I started with a first app.
My previous experience with creating an Android application was about 4-5 years ago. I've created one or two simple applications during my studies and forgot about this topic.

Today when I wanted to create a new app I needed to start from beginning. First of all I need to install tools:
Android Studio (I use Intellij with Android extension).Android SDK - I used the sdkmanager but during Android Studio installation sdk should be installed.If you have 64 bits system you need to check: Required libraries for 64-bit machines. If you have installed all above tools you should be able to create simple Android project and run it on your phone.

Yes, like always I met few problems with run the application on my phone.

#1 The adb can not find my device.
Solution: turn phone as MTP mode.

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugResources'.
> Failed to execute aapt

Jenkins [DSP2017 #06]

In this entry I want to introduce tool which should be used in each projects. It covers how to install and configure a simple job.

First of all I started from installation of jenkins in my local machine (Ubuntu). You can download installation package from official page or use jenkins wiki. As like always I met some problem:
 The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 jenkins : Depends: daemon but it is not installed

As a resolving of it I used command apt-get -f install and next apt-get upgrade.

Then we should be able see the page like below on address http://localhost:8080

After unlock and installation some pluggins we should be able to see something like below.

Next I added simple job which will check the repository and run command gradle -p nany-server test. The result is on an image below.

I think that few of us met with lost jobs definitions. What then? We need to define each job manually again. From my point of view the better option is to keep configurations of job as a f…

Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I: Exam 1Z0-808 [DSP2017 #05]

Hello and sorry for absence during last weeks. This time was very busy because I had to prepare myself for OCA certification.
In this post I want to write few word about:
what I've done how it looks what I will improve next time  I've read one book from beginning to the end. It was
OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification Guide MALA GUPTA I think that it is good book for gain knowledge about base java. There is a lot of examples, very detail description. Form point of exam just reading and making the tests is not enough. The test inside this book are not so easy but they don't cover real exam.
Next books which were only source of mock tests:
OCA / OCP Java SE 8 Programmer Practice TestsOCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 The mocks in the first position are very easy and so short. In real exam the examples of code was so longer and requires more concentration.
During the preparation I was receiving score between 65-85% on mock and …

Types of tests [DSP2017 #04]

As a java developer with more than 3 years of experience I had opportunity of participating in few projects. To be honest only in a last one a testing strategy is on high level.  I encourage you for introduce and put more pressure on testing strategy during a delivery process. As with all new things the beginnings are difficult but I'm sure that it is worth.

As almost testers know undermentioned pyramid I need to put it for people who have not seen it.

In a big amount of projects we can meet this pyramid in inverted order. What can impact of quality of a system. For example when we have a lot of manual tests it is boring for users and sometimes they can be skipped what can missed bug.

So in the lowest level we see the Unit tests and the count of this should be the bigger and on the highest level, there are manual tests. As we can expect the count should of them should be the lowest.

A few words about each of them:
Unit tests - should be quick and small. They check just one method o…

Rest API desing [DSP2017 #02]

Rest API best practices During creating an http api we should remember about few rules.
As a API designers we must know how to name our endpoints. When we have a library which contains users and their books. As a collection we should use a plural form of verb like books and users. Below we can find examples of endpoints for certain activity and strict HTTP methods Add new book: /users/{userId}/books/{bookId} POSTGet book: /users/{userId}/books/{bookId} GETEdit book: /users/{userId}/books/{bookId} PUTRemove book: /users/{userId}/books/{bookId} DELETEStatus codes200 OK201 Created202 Accepted - request has been accepted but not completed.204 Non content - the request is correct but no content in response body.400 Bad request401 Unauthorized 403 Forbidden404 Not found408 Request time out409 - Conflict - duplicate data or invalid data state would occur. 500 Internal server error501 Not implemented 503 Service unavailable    I think that above list is the most important when we start with c…

Do odważnych świat należy [DSP2017 #01]

Witam wszystkich uczestników ;)

Od jakiegoś czasu chodziło mi po głowie założenie bloga niestety nie miałem do tego wystarczającej motywacji. Wtedy wpadł mi w ręce artykuł zachęcający do wzięcia udziału w DSP 2017. Myślę, że jest to fantastyczna okazja na powstanie (od dawna planowanego) projektu oraz spróbowania własnych sił w tworzeniu bloga :)

Projekt "Nany"
Celem projektu jest stworzenie aplikacji zbierającej dźwięk z pokoju dziecka. W momencie wykrycia dźwięku system powinien informować rodziców o zaistniałej sytuacji. Projekt prowadzony będzie w metodologii Agile, a o wszystkich rezultatach oraz zmianach będę informował na blogu.

Python – aplikacja do zbierania dźwięku i wysyłania sygnału do serwera,Java – implementacja serwera aplikacji.
