Android Binary Available for Download

I put the Android binary up for download to cut down a few steps on the Android deployment I described in a recent blog post.

Download OpenRemote-Android-1.0.0_Alpha1.apk

Worth noting is that the Android implementation should still be considered a proof-of-concept (hence 'Alpha') and doesn't yet contain all the features in the latest iPhone console, and has some known issues. Nevertheless, the basic functionality is in place and should work. The barrier to testing, patching and developing the console functionality on Android is also lower.

Quick Steps

  1. Download Android SDK (Linux, Mac or Windows)
  2. unzip android-sdk-mac_x86-1.5_r3.zip
  3. cd android-sdk-mac_x86-1.5_r3/tools
  4. ./android create avd --name openremote --target 2
  5. ./emulator -avd openremote &
  6. ./adb install /path/to/OpenRemote-Android-1.0.0_Alpha1.apk
  7. Enter 'http://controller.openremote.org/1.0/controller/resources' as device URL

      Try the URL you configured in your Android emulator with your web browser (append the /iphone.xml to it) and see if the file is returned. If not, then there's a configuration mistake.

        I tried in Android emulator with http://localhost:8080/controller/iphone.xml : Web page not available, then i tried with my ip : http://192.168.56.1:8080/controller/ok.png and it worked (image is displayed), but with iphone.xml i have no message the screen is black.

        It's the same in Open Remote Console, may be it found the iphone.xml (a copy from an iphone.xml i found)

        Do you have a sample file for iphone.xml for Android (It's normal yet ?) ? because when i created my OpenRemote.zip there was not iphone.xlm file

        Excuse me i forget :

        I test on my notebook in windows XP,

        Thanks

          Not having iphone.xml certainly sounds suspect. What did you use to create your OpenRemote.zip?

          The Android 1.0 alpha uses the same iphone.xml, there's nothing specific to Android there.
