Useful stuff to help with Xamarin Android Bindings
At YARG, we have successfully created Xamarin bindings to Good Technology's iOS Good Dynamics SDK and we've now got a few iOS Enterprise Apps out there in the field. We're now in the process of creating the Android binding set, we're not far off but we still have a few interfaces / classes that we need to expose. As a point of reference on some of the toolsets we're using I thought I'd jot them down here.
When you're binding against a .jar file it's very handy to traverse the package to see what classes, types etc are exposed.
To do this, you have a few options (of course there are more but these work for us and they're free)
Extracting the Contents of a JAR File which is the standard command line operation on a Mac OSX
On Windows development boxes we use this excellent free tool
JD-GUI is a standalone graphical utility that displays Java source codes of “.class” files
When you are trying to create your Xamarin Android bindings you may run across an error where it complains that you are not implementing IntPtr Handle and Dispose. To get round this problem I found this link:
I hope some of this helps!
