With mobile apps becoming more and more reliant on web services, managing network code has become one of the central responsibilities of the mobile application architect. This talk will cover Robospice, an open-source networking library for Android. Robospice streamlines some the most common networking tasks on Android, such as:
- asynchronous background threading
- network request, response and error handling
- binding of JSON, XML and other data interchange types to Java objects
- robust response caching
- support for several library modules, including Spring Android and Google HTTP Client
This talk will not assume any previous Android knowledge, so those who are familiar with Java but not with Android are encouraged to attend.
RoboSpice is a project initiated and maintained by OCTO Technology.
