An API to Wi-Fi Direct Using Reactive Building Blocks
MetadataShow full item record
Implementing unfamiliar functionalities in smartphone applications can be a difficult and a tedious task. Owing to the fact that the API do not have a formal way of representing the sequence of events may be one reason. This thesis describes the development process of various Arctis building blocks based on Android's API of Wi-Fi Direct. The objective of these blocks was to simplify the implementation of Wi-Fi Direct by confining a predictable sequence of events.An Android application was developed in order to test the functionalities, and to validate the prospects of portability for the various building blocks. The work resulted in a construction of three main building blocks, where each of them is responsible for a Wi-Fi Direct related function. Developers will be able to seamlessly utilize the Wi-Fi Direct functionality by combining and implementing these building blocks into their own applications.
