Creating your own OAuth2 server and clients using spring security - part 1

In this series of posts, I'll try to put together a simple working example on how to create your own OAuth2 server.

if you want to know more on OAuth2 and when to use it as authentication and authorization protocol then you can search about it on google and i'll put some URLs later.

Now I assume you are familiar with java web applications using Spring and maven.

to get started we need to create the server side with all dependencies required and i'll list them here, i'll use maven 2 to ease downloading dependencies for us.


Steps:

1- Create new maven project with arch type webapp:



2- Add the required depenedencies for spring, spring security, spring-oauth2, hibernate & other libraries (required for this tutorial only you can use other libraries if you like)

3- I used hibernate to automate the creation of the schema required by spring OAuth2 to manage tokens (it's required to have schema created in db if you are using jdbc token store).
I use wamp server and phpmyadmin to create my database

4- Setup hibernate mapping [I used xml file, but I think annotations will work too]

5- Create login service interface and stub implementation

6- Create custom authentication provider

7-Create the properties file required for db conneciton
jdbc.driverClassName=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
jdbc.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/testoauth
jdbc.username=root
jdbc.password=

8-Create spring-security.xml  (we will go over the contents in the next part)

9-Create security-beans.xml to gather spring configurations related to security in one place

10-Create spring-beans.xml to gather all configurations in one file

11-Configure web.xml, and add mvc-dispatcher-servlet.xml

after all this if I didn't forget anything you will have the following (click on the image to see it in original size):

Android RecyclerView - Adding Empty View

So RecyclerView was introduced to replace List view and it's optimized to reuse existing views and so it's faster and more efficient as stated in the documentation:

https://developer.android.com/training/material/lists-cards.html

While using it, I faced the issue of missing a useful functionality that is implemented in ListView.
that feature is setting an empty view in case there was no records.

In ListView it was as simple as this

View emptyView = findViewById(R.id.mylist_empty_view);
ListView  myList = ....
myList.setEmptyView(emptyView);

but this method doesn't exist for recycler view so we need a work around until android team fixes this.


and here are the screen shots of both list view and recycler view fix

List view :

Recycler view :



here is how I fixed it:



here is the content of empty_view, it can be anything.



Enjoy.

Android - Multiple themes for one application

Sometimes you want to have multiple themes for your app
one strong example is having the ability to switch between dark and light themes because during night, a white bright screen can really be annoying for users eyes

Android will do most of the work for you but it may be required to change icons between themes to fit colors
In this blog I'll show a simple app with both dark and light themes and how to change icons without having to do that from code and keep things clean and centralized.
first of all let's create our activity, it will look something like this :


In /rest/values/styles.xml, we inherit Theme.AppCompat
 <!--
        Base application theme, dependent on API level. This theme is replaced
        by AppBaseTheme from res/values-vXX/styles.xml on newer devices.
    -->
    <style name="AppBaseTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat">
        <!--
            Theme customizations available in newer API levels can go in
            res/values…
