Abstract
There are a lot of dictionaries available in the market. However, it‘s hard to find a MalayArabic dictionary complete with picture or video to visualize what is the word represent, and pronunciation in voice. Thus, the researchers developed and implemented a Malay-Arabic online multimedia dictionary for beginner (OMMAr). The user is able to enter a Malay word and if the word matches any of the entry in the database system, the meaning in Arabic will be displayed with the picture or video and the sound for the word pronunciation. If there is no match, the system will propose similar words. The system is also capable of the doing the same for Arabic words.  The technology used is client-server technology where the mobile device (Smartphone) is the client, and there is a web server to facilitate the lookup table (database) and storage for the audio-visual aids. This paper will present the design of OMMAr on Smartphone which uses the UTF-8 character encoding to store the Arabic words. There is a special treatment to the web pages, the web server, and also the database. The web pages use UTF-8 HTML encoding while the web server needs a special function to translate the HTML code into UTF-8. To store the Arabic characters, the database‘s collation also need to be set to UTF-8. The authors use the Flash format for the videos and the sounds, while the images are in JPEG, GIF or PNG format. This paper is to report the design, implementation and testing of the systems user interface on several popular Smartphone devices.

Keywords: online dictionary, Malay-Arabic online dictionary, UTF-8 characters transaction, online multimedia dictionary, mobile based dictionary.

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 .

Bootstrap Template for PHP database system - MyCompanyHR

Pick a file using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT

This tutorial is tested on Honeycomb 3.0 environment. In order to be used it in the lower level of Android API, I believe you could just change the target in the Android project. Screenshots Pick an image file using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT The intention of this project is to choose an image file available in the device storage, and simply display it in an ImageView. The benefit of using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT is you don’t have to develop open dialog box which is not available in the Android library. ACTION_GET_CONTENT with MIME type */* and category CATEGORY_OPENABLE -- Display all pickers for data that can be opened with ContentResolver.openInputStream() , allowing the user to pick one of them and then some data inside of it and returning the resulting URI to the caller. This can be used, for example, image chooser (as shown in this article).
