Login JSON Android using Login Activity

I’ve been trying to release this tutorial quite a while. At last after a long hard effort. Since HttpClient is not supported any more in Android SDK 23, I have to resort to org.json.JSONObject and java.net.HttpURLConnection library to do online database with JSON.

The objective of this tutorial is to log-in from a mobile client with the username and password stored in an online database facility.

STEP 1: Create a new Android project, this time choose the LoginActivity .

login-new-project

choose-login-activity

The Interface

As the interface is provided by the ListActivity template, I will not elaborate.

 

STEP 2. Add the HttpHandler helper class.

This helper class is to check several errors of HTTP data format. It is also to convert HTTP stream into STRING.

Add JAVA the file to the main package.

HttpHandler-java-file

HttpHandler.java

package net.kerul.logindirectory;

//HttpHandler.java

import android.util.Log;

import java.io.BufferedInputStream;
import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.net.HttpURLConnection;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;
import java.net.ProtocolException;
import java.net.URL;

public class HttpHandler {

    private static final String TAG = HttpHandler.class.getSimpleName();

    public HttpHandler() {
    }

    public String makeServiceCall(String reqUrl) {
        String response = null;
        try {
            URL url = new URL(reqUrl);
            HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
            conn.setRequestMethod("GET");//method type
            // read the response
            InputStream in = new BufferedInputStream(conn.getInputStream());
            response = convertStreamToString(in);
        } catch (MalformedURLException e) {
            Log.e(TAG, "MalformedURLException: " + e.getMessage());
        } catch (ProtocolException e) {
            Log.e(TAG, "ProtocolException: " + e.getMessage());
        } catch (IOException e) {
            Log.e(TAG, "IOException: " + e.getMessage());
        } catch (Exception e) {
            Log.e(TAG, "Exception: " + e.getMessage());
        }
        return response;
    }

    private String convertStreamToString(InputStream is) {
        BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(is));
        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();

        String line;
        try {
            while ((line = reader.readLine()) != null) {
                sb.append(line).append('\n');
            }
        } catch (IOException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        } finally {
            try {
                is.close();
            } catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }
        return sb.toString();
    }
}

STEP 3: The main java file to handle button LOGIN click and connection to the online server.

The code is too long, I just highlight several important functions.

The UserLoginTask class that implemented in AsyncTask (multi-threading).

 

/**
     * Represents an asynchronous login/registration task used to authenticate
     * the user.
     */
    public class UserLoginTask extends AsyncTask<String, Void, String> {

        private final String mEmail;
        private final String mPassword;

        UserLoginTask(String email, String password) {
            mEmail = email;
            mPassword = password;
        }

        @Override
        protected void onPreExecute(){
            showProgress(true);
        }//onPreExecute

        @Override
        protected String doInBackground(String... arg0) {

            try {

                URL url = new URL("http://khirulnizam.com/prebetgo/login.php"); // here is your URL path

                JSONObject postDataParams = new JSONObject();
                //add name pair values to the connection

                postDataParams.put("username", username);
                postDataParams.put("password", password);

                Log.e("params",postDataParams.toString());
                Log.e("URL",url.toString());

                HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
                conn.setReadTimeout(15000 /* milliseconds */);
                conn.setConnectTimeout(15000 /* milliseconds */);
                conn.setRequestMethod("POST");
                conn.setDoInput(true);
                conn.setDoOutput(true);
                conn.connect();

                OutputStream os = conn.getOutputStream();
                BufferedWriter writer = new BufferedWriter(
                        new OutputStreamWriter(os, "UTF-8"));
                writer.write(getPostDataString(postDataParams));

                writer.flush();
                writer.close();
                os.close();

                int responseCode=conn.getResponseCode();
                Log.e("responseCode", "responseCode "+responseCode);
                if (responseCode == HttpsURLConnection.HTTP_OK) {//code 200 connection OK
                    //this part is to capture the server response
                    BufferedReader in=new BufferedReader(new
                            InputStreamReader(
                            conn.getInputStream()));
                    //Log.e("response",conn.getInputStream().toString());

                    StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer("");
                    String line="";

                    do{
                        sb.append(line);
                        Log.e("MSG sb",sb.toString());
                    }while ((line = in.readLine()) != null) ;

                    in.close();
                    Log.e("response",conn.getInputStream().toString());
                    Log.e("textmessage",sb.toString());
                    return sb.toString();//server response message

                }
                else {

                    return new String("false : "+responseCode);
                }
            }
            catch(Exception e){
                //error on connection
                return new String("Exception: " + e.getMessage());
            }
        }//end doInBackground

        @Override
        protected void onPostExecute(String result) {
            //Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), result,
            //Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            //return result;
            //call method to handle after verification


            mAuthTask = null;
            showProgress(false);

            loginVerification(result);
        }//end onPostExecute

        @Override
        protected void onCancelled() {
            mAuthTask = null;
            showProgress(false);
        }//end onCancelled
    }
    public String getPostDataString(JSONObject params) throws Exception {

        StringBuilder result = new StringBuilder();
        boolean first = true;

        Iterator<String> itr = params.keys();

        while(itr.hasNext()){
            String key= itr.next();
            Object value = params.get(key);

            if (first)
                first = false;
            else
                result.append("&");

            result.append(URLEncoder.encode(key, "UTF-8"));
            result.append("=");
            result.append(URLEncoder.encode(value.toString(), "UTF-8"));

        }//end getPostDataString
        //Log.i("result",result.toString());
        return result.toString();
    }//end UserLoginTask

The loginVerification function to display dialog box to the login status.

 

private void loginVerification(String svrmsg){
        String savemsg="";
        //if new record successfully saved
        Toast.makeText(this, "svrmsg:"+svrmsg,Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        if (svrmsg.equals("success")){

            savemsg="Logged in...";

        }
        else {//save failed
            savemsg="Email/password not match!";
        }

        //**********common dialog box
        AlertDialog.Builder builder1 = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
        builder1.setTitle("User Login");
        builder1.setMessage(savemsg);
        builder1.setCancelable(false);
        builder1.setPositiveButton("ok", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
                dialog.cancel();
            }
        }).create().show();

        //call ListUsers page if servermessage is success
        if (svrmsg.equals("success")){

            Intent i=new Intent(this,ListUsers.class);
            startActivity(i);
        }

    }//end loginVerification

STEP 4: The middleware in the online server

<?php
$username=$_POST['username'];
$password=$_POST['password'];

// include connect class

require_once __DIR__ . '/connect.php';

// connecting to db

$db = new DB_CONNECT();

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM sd_users WHERE email='$username' AND password=md5('$password')") 

or die(mysql_error());

// check for empty result

if (mysql_num_rows($result) > 0) {
    // match found
	//send success
		echo "success";
		//$response["success"] = 1;
	}//end match found

	else{//no match found
		//send status fail
		echo "fail";
		//$response["success"] = 0;
	}
	//echo json_encode($response);

?>
