ADF Mobile - attached device not being recognised

Seemingly randomly I started having errors trying to deploy an ADF Mobile application to my Nexus 7 tablet.  I was getting

[10:28:07 AM] Shutting down Android Debug Bridge server...
[10:28:07 AM] Deployment cancelled.
[10:28:07 AM] ----  Deployment incomplete  ----.
[10:28:07 AM] Failed to detect a connected Android device.  Make sure the device is connected.  Otherwise, manually restart the ADB server.  The following results were provided by ADB:
List of devices    attached

But in addition, I also noted that some software I was using to view the Nexus on my PC was also not finding the tablet.  I also couldn't see the tablet on the Windows Explorer window - so, something somewhere outside of JDeveloper seemed to be the problem.

What I did to fix this was the following

  1. From the Windows Start I ran devmgmt.msc and from here I found "Android Composite ADB Device" - I double clicked on this to chose to uninstall AND delete the driver.
  2. I then re-connected the Nexus and it started to install the driver.  I got an error here but I pressed on regardless since now at least Windows Explorer could see the device although JDeveloper couldn't
  3. I made sure USB Debugging was ON on the tablet AND I also switch off Media Device (MTP) which is a USB connection option.

The combination of the above and the luck of the gods seemed to have got things working.

ADF Academy: Learn ADF Mobile for free on line

I'm very pleased to announce that we are launching a new on line learning initiative called ADF Academy.  The first release is focused on ADF Mobile.  This is an interactive learning course which includes interviews with ADF Mobile experts, live demos, and quizes; all delivered through an engaging and dynamic learning style.  The whole idea is to move away from the bullet point driven learning we often see, and instead move to a much more engaging model of learning. 

I'm really excited to release this course and we're keen to hear your feedback.

Calling REST services from an ADF Mobile Application

I've just recorded and uploaded a new video on how to call REST services from an ADF Mobile application.  Given REST is one of the primary mechanisms for interacting with mobile devices, I'm hoping this will be a key piece of information on developing ADF Mobile Application (after all, that's why the channel is called ADF Insider Essentials!)  In the demo I show using the URL Data Control and also how to use the REST Service Adaptor.
