Android App Issue when connecting to TW Server

Hi,

I'm trying to create an Android App using the Java SDK and i am encountering a connection issue when starting up the app.

09-29 14:15:32.896  12257-12275/com.ptc.ptcnet.sensoren I/System.out﹕ 14:15:32.895 [Client-EndpointMonitor-1] DEBUG c.t.c.c.e.m.CommunicationEndpointMonitorTask - CommunicationEndpoint Monitor - checking for disconnected endpoints

Can anybody help me with this?

Kind regards Philip

Hello Philip,

I don't think EDGE SDK for Java is supported on Android: https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS214242&source=Case%20Viewer

In case you don't have access to PTC Tech Support web site -- basically it says "Android SDK is in development and will be available in near future"

As is it may work under some circumstances, but I'm afraid nobody will give you any guaranties. Check Bertrand's answer on this topic or consider using RESTful web services instead.

Thanks for the quick answer.

I now added the internet permission like Bertrand said and now my emulator connects but it doesnt show up in ThingWorx under Remote Things like it should.

the log shows the following lines

When i run the app on my own phone it says there is a protocol version error.

Is it related to using the Java SDK and the Android one?

Any ideas?

The Java SDK will not work directly inside an Android application because it is based on Netty which requires the Java New IO package (nio) which is not provided as part of the Android VM.

I am working on the ThingWorx Android SDK right now. It is planned for release next month and will deliver the same capabilities as the Java SDK.


Hi Bill,

is there any way i can get into Beta testing or is it just not possible?Would really appreciate it

Hi Philip and Constantine,

The Android SDK is in active development.  We are planning a production release in December, but are now providing an Alpha version of the SDK. 

Those interested to use the Android SDK v.Alpha, please click on my username and send me a direct message including your email address. 


Thank you!
