The following is the first few sections of a chapter from The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development, plus headings for the remaining major sections, to give you an idea about the content of the chapter.


Appendix A: CWAC Libraries

CommonsWare — the publisher of this book — has also published a series of open source libraries, collectively named the CommonsWare Android Components (CWAC). If you have read through the book, you will have seen many of these libraries.

This appendix lists all of the CWAC libraries. If the library is covered elsewhere in the book, the appendix links you to that coverage. Those that are not covered elsewhere will be described in this appendix, to accompany the online documentation found at the library’s GitHub repository.

cwac-adapter

The cwac-adapter repository contains a small AdapterWrapper class that wraps a ListAdapter. The default implementation of all AdapterWrapper methods is to forward the request along to the wrapped ListAdapter. However, you can subclass AdapterWrapper to override that behavior.
