  1. Playing sound in andoird

    Adding sound and music to your app is extremely easy. Place your sound file in a new directory res/raw.

    import android.media.MediaPlayer;

    and then where you want the music to play:

    MediaPlayer myMusic = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.splashsound);

    where splashsound is the sound file's name without the extension.

    That's it!

  4. Look and Feel ToolBar solution.

    This solution is written coz of the problem i have faced for almost a week and after a huge panic, i came to find an alternate solution to solve the problem.

    never be able to see LAF(Look and Feel) effect over it. You will most probably get even more confused if you will see the effect on the menu items. Well, what is the actual ...
  5. Fun little optimization

    Disclaimer: While optimizations can be fun and addictive, determine if your particular application needs any before attempting to optimize it.

    I've always wondered if the Java compiler was capable of performing certain loop optimizations. So for fun, I picked a two of them (a simple permutation and loop unrolling) and tested them out.

    public class Test

    		final int DIM = 0x2000;
