Thanks arulk pillai for the prompt reply. I've done SCJP and familiar with core java as I"m doing Andriod dev in Java. But my problem is should I continue to be a mobile dev or should I think about being a Java / J2EE dev.

I’ve started my career as a Software Tester but after 3 years I realized, it didn’t give me the so called job satisfaction and I made a brave decision to jump into software development arena. Finally I have become an Android Mobile developer and completed 1 year of experience.

I love my job and I love every bit of it, but going forward I’m wondering what the scope for mobile developers is?? Developers who work with C# or Java have their larger scope and they can become architect etc in future. But as a mobile developer what can I achieve.. Mobile development architect is not something practical because mobile projects are small and it does not require much technical ability like j2ee project needs.

Should I change my career track to Java or j2ee or something from mobile?? Any advice is appreciated.

Instead of running the APK you find in the bin folder, run the whole project by loading it in Eclipse. It should work. I worte that code and its working fine in my SAmsung Ace.

Probably you need to use a class to convert "A" into "அ" everytime a keypress event occured. Check out this Android Project's Utill Class

If you want to enter system wide then you gotta develop a IME for Android. There are many Tamil Android IME's such as Tamil Visai which is open source.

Hi Siva,
Android oppertunities are booming now. You can clearly see that in the job offering sites. Learn the concepts of Java and also learn how to use java docs. You can definitly can become an Android dev. Afterall I became an Android dev after 3 years of testing job.

Good luck.

Finally I manage to make my way into Development arena. Thanks to all for your encouraging words.

Both SCJP and BCS did help me to acheive this goal. To my surprise, my new employer offered me more salary than what I got in my tester job after 3 years . Thats a double BINGO!

Now i'm a android developer. Thanks guys thanks a lot. I wouldn't have done this without your words and courage.

You are trying to refer the layout-land but your code refers R.layout.main

so the layout shown will be the main.xml file under layout folder.

btw avoid using - in folder file names, it'll create compilation error most of the time.

Thanks a lot

Now I understand where I went wrong. I wrote the Man class inside the SortMe class and trying to code the rest thinking that Man Class is outside SortMe class

Yeah I tried to overide toString also and it worked like magic.

Thanks a lot again and again for your valuable time.

Basically, the compiler is complaining that you Man class doesn't have a constructor that takes no parameters. And if you take a quick look, your compiler is correct.


I made a empty constructor as below but now getting another error "No enclosing instance of type SortMe is accessible. Must qualify the allocation with an enclosing instance of type SortMe (e.g. A() where x is an instance of SortMe)."

I removed the constructor so it'll use the default constructor. now getting this same error as above ( awwwwwwww
