Extending Java for Android Programming

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Android is one of the most popular platforms for developing mobile applications. However, its framework relies on programming conventions and styles to implement framework-specific concepts like activities and intents, causing problems such as reliability, readability, understandability, and maintainability. The authors propose to extend Java to support Android framework concepts explicitly as built-in language features. Their extension called Android Java will allow Android programmers to express these concepts in a more reliable, natural, and succinct way.
