This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I was wondering if you have mentioned something like the "best practices for coding on Android" in the book. When I started to code for Android, the first roadblock was the proper use of collections and threads.
For a semi-proficient java programmer, taking into account the limitations of the underlying platform is a challenge in the start. I am still struggling with the performance of my application as it is data intensive. I tried using a REST web service instead of a SOAP service but the results did not improve much.
Can you suggest some points that we can keep in mind while coding so as to improve performance?
