Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Networking options, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- All right, we've talked enough about things. Let's actually start doing something with things. The first thing we need to do is to connect to a thing so that we know how to talk to it and we know how to decide whether we're gonna be the bridge in our Android device to connect to the internet. The Internet of Things will be, quote, "a world-wide network "of interconnected objects uniquely addressable, "based on standard communication protocols." That's from W. David Stephenson's great book, Smart Stuff: an introduction to the Internet of Things. On Android, we've got two networking options.
The first is Bluetooth, which is the Android Bluetooth API, which comes from all the BluetoothGatt classes, and Gatt stands for Generic Attribute Protocol, don't ask me why they spell it Gatt, but that's what it stands for, and if you want to connect up to the internet using HTTP, use the Android Networking API, the HttpURLConnection classes. We're not gonna dig into that in this course. If you're not familiar with that, check out Android Essential Training with Dan Gookin, also available here on Lynda.com.
