The current book is the seventeenth in this series of books on software development in Java, and it is a continuation of the previous book on mobile phone applications development.

The book requires a knowledge about Java and Android corresponding to what is dealt with in the book Java 16, and the goal is to introduce topics that were not available in this book. Among other things, the book will introduce how to use fragments that are important for developing larger applications and ensuring independence of the current device. Other important topics are to introduce how to use the facilities (such as GPS and Camera) that a telephone relative to a conventional PC makes available. Finally, the book will expand the substance regarding services and present solutions to some of the shortcomings mentioned at the end of the previous book. The goal is that the reader after reading the previous book and this book is able to in practice develop Android applications written in Java.

As the title says this series of books deals with software development, and the goal is to teach the reader how to develop applications in Java. It can be learned by reading about the subject and by studying complete sample programs, but most importantly by yourself to do it and write your own programs from scratch. Therefore, an important part of the books is exercises and problems, where the reader has to write programs that correspond to the substance being treated in the books. All books in the series is built around the same skeleton and will consist of text and examples and exercises and problems that are placed in the text where they naturally belongs. The difference between exercises and problems is that the exercises largely deals with repetitions of the substance that is presented in the text, and furthermore it is relatively accurately described what to do. Problems are in turn more loosely described, and are typically a little bigger and there is rarely any clear best solution.

These are books to be read from start to finish, but the many code examples, including exercises and problems plays a central role, and it is important that the reader predict in detail studying the code to the many examples and also solves the exercises and problems or possibly just studying the recommended solutions.

All books ends with one or two larger sample programs, which focus primarily is on process and an explanation of how the program is written. On the other hand appears the code only to a limited extent – if at all – and the reader should instead study the finished program code perhaps while testing the program.
