Many thanks again Peter and many thanks for being so polite as to write "Good question"!

Many thanks Tim.  I'll have a look at this.

Many thanks Peter.  I'll give this a go.  

A further question - Are there instances where you should stick with Java or would you suggest coding all apps in Kotlin?

Thanks,

Hi,

Is it easy to convert existing Java code to Kotlin?

Thanks,

Many thanks Jeanne, your solution worked. I now have a working solution and a better understanding of the configuration.

Thanks Jeanne. I'm using the Tomcat JDBC connection pool, https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/jdbc-pool.html. There is a setting here, setMinIdle, which I imagine can be set to zero. I'll try this and let you know how I get on.

Whoops - according to Google, who should know, it looks like only some parts of it have been deprecated.

Hi

I use the Tomcat JDBC Connection Pool to connect to an Oracle Database run by an outside organisation. This was working fine until this outside organisation changed their timeout setting to 40 minutes to accommodate another application. Problems occur in the evening when the database has not been accessed for more than 40 minutes - What changes should I make to the configuration settings to prevent the connection being lost?

Many thanks,

Frank
Hi Joel,

I've read recently that WebView has been deprecated. What has replaced it and is it covered in your book.

Thanks,

Many thanks Joel, that's great. I don't intend using the emulator so 8GB should be enough.

Best of luck with your book!

Hi,

I'm following an online Android Development course which recommends an 8GB machine to develop apps using Android Studio. Do you agree that this is what's required? if so, would you recommend any laptops with 8GB of memory?

Thanks,

Hi,

Can you set up Android Studio to be backwards compatible, i.e. can I import my current apps and still have them working on Android 4.1 phones?

Thanks,

NFC
Thanks very much Dave. If I don't win a book in this competition I'll definitely buy your book. I'm hoping to also write an application using NFC to read a MiFare classic chip. I've googled this and have come up with some useful links but none that i've managed to successfully implement in my own application - have you any advice for writing such an application?
