DB – SQLite

01/31/2012 § Leave a comment

Finally,  we have begun with DataBase. Storing of information and its display. One of the most important thing in any software is to store and retrieve data.  We hope that the development will continue in this tempo. At the moment we are operating on Sqlite that is a local DB for mobile devices.

It was little bit difficult to operate with SQLite in PhoneGap, cos it had a different way of inserting variables into DataBase, after googling several places I still couldn’t find satisfying answer or a documentation. Even a book that I have and PhoneGap official web site hadn’t a clue so after just vulgar tests and guesses I have found the result …. maybe I wasn’t lucky and maybe the answer was somewhere there, but anyway wanted to share with people who think it is tricky and search for it…

tx.executeSql(‘INSERT INTO tale_name (row_name) VALUES (?)’, [var]);

PhoneGap 1.3.0 – Android – js, function code.

First Sprint Accomplished

01/26/2012 § Leave a comment

Today, we had a meeting with  Randi Stokke, employer. According to the Scrum we had to present our first code in practice, that we did. Discussions around next sprint code prioritization had been made.  Feedback from employer have been given. After a deep discussion and planning we are ready to upload our first status report online. Status report you can find on our page “EpilepsyApp”

At the moment we are not ready to upload our application for test or use, because it hasn’t the first level function that includes ability to navigate from different to different activities and storing data to local DB.

We hope that you will be able to test and use our application as soon as it possible. Be with us and we will let you know about latest updates and progress.

If you want to be a tester please contact us.

For consideration of UI

?! Choose carefully …

Yeah, we had one day for looking around for a proper UI for PhoneGap, framework, .js file that could be used for our application but it seems pretty interesting. The main problem is that the ready css slows the work and eats up a pretty amount of memory that seems not to practical. After working and setting up everything and testing it, we have decided that own defined css could be a better solution getting our application work faster.

Of course we will try to dig more about possible solutions, but at the moment we consider own defined css file.

So, guys if you are thinking of using jQuery or other ready frameworks for beautiful GUI please think about these factors.

First Remote Meeting

01/23/2012 § Leave a comment

Today, we had a meeting and it was a different one. We had our first remote meeting with our supervisor in New Zealand. The difference between two countries is 12 hours, but it didn’t let us go after schedule. The weekly discussion of project status with our supervisor and planning the week is a great opportunity to see new possibilities, solve problems and of course to check ourselves with report for the progress.

As a tool for video conversation with multiple users can used “hang over” by Google-plus that is free of charge and it doesn’t play role if there are more than two users at video chat comparing to other same technology.
