Manage global data with app context

Manage global data with app context: Java Design Patterns and APIs for Android
Manage global data with app context: Java Design Patterns and APIs for Android

The Java language doesn’t intrinsically support global variables. Every bit of data you store in memory in Java is a member of some class or object. But the Android app framework gives you a way to store application data globally using something called the application context. In this movie, you'll learn how to create your own Application class, how to register it in the app manifest, and then how to store data in memory that can persist for a short amount of time.
