Sample text

Because Java very rapidly accumulates boilerplate code, most Java editors will automatically hide this extra guff under what are called folds. You can expand it by clicking the (+), but most of the time you won’t need to. Eclipse is quite good at sorting out which imports you need or don’t need. // This is our class definition. Note we're extending Activity 'public class Hello2Main extends Activity { /** Called when the activity is first created. */ @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { Bundle is a handy Android class that contains, well, a bundle of data.

Maybe you’ll be calmer. Again, the concept is pretty simple. Whereas your plain List or Map works on objects, which can be anything, typically you’ll have a limited number of types you want to play with. Let us assume you want to build a Map containing File objects, keyed with a String. Using plain maps, you’d do something like Listing 1-10. Listing 1-10. put("readme", new File("README")); // Later.... get("readme"); } Note the (File) notation. This is known as a cast. It tells Java that this object is actually a File.

There are only two caveats. 1. Objects that use system resources will normally have a method to explicitly release those resources. close(); The close will release the file handle and do other system-related tidying up. It doesn’t free the mystream object directly, but now it’s not consuming system resources you might need elsewhere. 19 CHAPTER 1 GETTING STARTED 2. Make sure you don’t leave references to created objects floating around. The garbage collection works by counting references to an object.
