I'm pleased to announce that as of this morning, ORMDroid now has some basic support for one-to-many relationships between entities, thanks to Jacob Ferrero and as hinted at in a previous post. Jacob actually put this together a few months ago, the only hold-up has been me getting around to merging the code in, so … Continue reading One-to-many in ORMDroid – at last!
Wow, so my last post was September? That's just not good blogging, and for that I apologise... There's been a lot going on, but this is no time for excuses - I'm just posting this to let you all know that I'm still here, still writing code (lately, not as much as I'd like, but … Continue reading Just checking in…
ORMDroid 0.40 is now available from the releases area on Github. This is the first packaged release since 0.20 almost eleven months ago, and incorporates new features, reworked old features, and bugfixes. There's a full announcement at the link above. As well as packaging this release, we've now also closed the (legacy) Google Code site … Continue reading ORMDroid 0.40 released
So I spent a bit of time today getting together the overdue release of Deelang ready, and finally pushed the 0.22 binary releases to Google Code, with source releases staying on GitHub. The Google Code project has now been fully migrated over to GitHub, and remains only to host binary downloads for those that want … Continue reading Deelang 0.22 released on GitHub!
After spending all their lives so far on Google Code, I've decided it's time to move both Deelang and ORMDroid over to GitHub. The projects have moved away from the old Subversion VCS and are now using Git, and the actual moving of the wiki pages, issues and everything else is well underway. Why the … Continue reading Deelang & ORMDroid: Moving to GitHub
After what seems like an eternity since the announcement that HTC would be updating the One X to Jelly Bean, and after a couple of months seeing it happen in other parts of the world, HTC finally got around yesterday to releasing the update to UK users, myself included. "Been a long time coming" according … Continue reading Jelly Bean on One X – Finally!
As previously mentioned, I planned to spend yesterday rewriting Deelang's parser with the aim of fixing some long-term issues and revisiting some design decisions that get in the way of the DEX compiler. As it turned out, I didn't have as much time as I wanted to spend on this (as usual!) but I did … Continue reading Rewriting Vs. Rewriting
In response to a feature request from some of the guys here, my current work on Deelang focusses on implementing proper equality and comparison operators as part of the language. The current release has no support for operators beyond basic arithmetic - equality and comparison have traditionally been implemented as methods hacked on top of the standard … Continue reading Biting the bullet – time for a rewrite
After about a month of coding (on and off), The Deelang DEX compiler is now feature complete, and what better way to celebrate than by releasing the code? It's always been available in Subversion of course, but now you can download all the new stuff from the downloads page as either a source package or ready-made … Continue reading Deelang 0.20 released!
During a recent discussion, I had the need to show some numbers demonstrating why Deelang needs the new DEX compiler. As I said in that thread, it's all about removing reflection from the compiled classes. We all know that "reflection is slow" (for some value of slow) and especially on Android, that it isn't generally a … Continue reading Dex vs Dee VM – A microbenchmark
