How to get html content using class name with jsoup (Android Studio)

I’m trying to create an app for my work, but I don’t have a lot of app development background.

Im trying to create a class that uses the jsoup library to make an object of elements from a website. After reading the documentation this is what I have:

public class storyObj {
public String title;
public String preview;
public String date;
String url = "http//";
Bitmap bitmap;

private class Title extends AsyncTask<Void, Void, Void> {
    protected Void doInBackground(Void... params) {
        try {
            Document doc = Jsoup.connect(url).get();
            Elements storyTitle = doc.getElementsByClass("story_item_title");
            title = storyTitle.attr("content");
        } catch (IOException e) {
        return null;

public String getTitle(){
    return title;

In my main activity I set a TextView to get the returned title:

storyObj story = new storyObj();
String text = story.getTitle();

TextView title = (TextView) findViewById(;

All I get is an empty string. Can someone help set me in the right direction? I’m not sure how to go about this and I’m wasting a lot of time. Thanks.

Returning boolean result when searching a linked list for an existing member – java

I’m writing a program for class that enters the user into an infinite loop and accepts three different commands (add x, delete x, exists x) + an integer value. When the user enters “exists x” the program should return a boolean result indicating if the value exists in the list.

The methods for add x and delete x work just fine, but when searching the list I cannot produce a “true/false” result. I’ve tried it a few different ways, here is where I am currently at with the exists x method:

public class LinkedNode {
public int x;         // The data value

public LinkedNode next;  // Reference to the next LinkedNode

// Default constructor
LinkedNode() {
    next = null;

// Constructor that initializes the data values
LinkedNode(int x) {
    this.x = x;

public void display() {
    System.out.print(x + " ");


public class Set {

public LinkedNode firstLink;

    firstLink = null;

public boolean isEmpty() {
    return (firstLink == null); //nothing in Set yet

public void add(int x) {
    LinkedNode newLink = new LinkedNode(x); = firstLink;
    firstLink = newLink;

public boolean exists(int x) {

   LinkedNode theLink = firstLink;

   while (theLink.x != x) { // keep searching until match
       if ( == null) // we've hit the end without a match, return false
               return false;
               theLink =;
       return true;

public LinkedNode delete(int x) {
    LinkedNode currentLink = firstLink;
    LinkedNode previousLink = firstLink;

    while (currentLink.x != x) { // search while no match is found
        if ( == null) {
            return null; // not found
    }   else { // moves to next LinkedNode
        previousLink = currentLink;
        currentLink =;
    if (currentLink == firstLink) { // first link matches search
        firstLink =; // delete link
    else { // any other link is a match except firstLink =;
    return currentLink;

public String toString() {
    String str = "";

    LinkedNode cur = firstLink;
    while (cur!=null) {
        str += cur.x + " ";
        cur =;
    return str;


Here is my Test/driver:

import java.util.*;

public class Test {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Set dataSet = new Set();
    Scanner input = new Scanner(;

        while (1<2) { // infinite loop on purpose

        String command, value;
        System.out.print("Enter command: ");
        String line = input.nextLine();
        String [] userInput = line.split(" ");
        command = userInput [0];
        value = userInput [1];

        if (!command.equalsIgnoreCase("add") && !command.equalsIgnoreCase("del") && !command.equalsIgnoreCase("exists")){
            System.out.println("Invalid command.");
            System.out.println("Valid commands are: add x, del x & exists x");
            System.out.print("Enter command: ");
        else if (command.equalsIgnoreCase("add")) {
        else if (command.equalsIgnoreCase("del")){
        else if (command.equalsIgnoreCase("exists"));{


I want the program to display “true/false” if the value searched exists in the link, similar to how it displays the current list after add/delete. Any hints as to where I’m going wrong?

Enter command: add 3
Enter command: add 1
1 3 
Enter command: add 20
20 1 3 
Enter command: exists 20
Enter command: 

Can’t get value in my controller using ajax ?

i don’t know if i asked the right question but anyway that is my problem : i followed a tutorial showing how to use ajax with Java ee and i made a simple example and it worked, but i tried to apply what i learned in my project and it didnt work, here is my jsp file :

<div class="aimerSection">
     <div class="aime">
     <input type="hidden" class="adore1" name="aime" value="${}">
     <input type="button" class="adore2" value="J'aime">
     <c:if test="${ post.adore == 0 || post.adore == 1 }">
     <div class="nbreAimes"><p><span class="nbrAdore">${ post.adore }</span> personne aime ça</p></div>

     <c:if test="${ post.adore != 0 && post.adore != 1 }">
     <div class="nbreAimes"><p><span class="nbrAdore">${ post.adore }</span> personnes aiment ça</p></div>


What i wanted is to get the value in the hidden input by clicking on my button( input button) so here is my jquery file :

    var aime = $(this).parent().find(".adore1").val()
    var value=$(this).parent().parent().siblings().find(".nbrAdore").text()

        data: {aime:aime},


And i wanted to see the result in the console ( as a test ) so here is a part of my Controller ( doPost method ) but i am getting any response.


    int aime = Integer.parseInt(req.getParameter("aime"));
    System.out.println("hello "+aime);

Any help would be much appreciated.

BufferredReader not recognizing spaces

BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(newInputStreamReader(s.getInputStream()));
             String input = br.readLine().replaceAll("[^A-Za-z0-9]", "");

Say input is : “My name is Jack”

Printing it shows : MynameisJack

Can’t get it to show spaces, and i don’t see anything wrong with the code either.

Control activity from a service

I’m coding an Android app, and I have to use websockets… I use 2 activities and a service: I use my main activity to take information on server, and I use a service to connect to this server. I want from this service to start the other activity, or let know to my main activity, when to start the other one. How can I do that ?
Thanks for helping

Retrofit 2 onResponse method is never called

first of all I know that this question has already been asked many times. But I cannot find a solution to the problem. From the log I can see that the web service correctly returns the JSON to me. But for some reason it never enters the onResponse method. I would be very grateful if someone could give me a hint on this matter.

public void getAllTipo_evento() {
        mTipo_eventoService.getAll().enqueue(new Callback<List<Tipo_eventoDTO>>() {
            public void onResponse(Call<List<Tipo_eventoDTO>> call, Response<List<Tipo_eventoDTO>> response) {

                if(response.isSuccessful()) {
                    Log.d("MainActivity", "posts loaded from API");
                }else if(response.errorBody() != null){
                        try {
                            String errorBody = response.errorBody().string();
                        } catch (IOException e) {
                else {
                    int statusCode  = response.code();
                    // handle request errors depending on status code

            public void onFailure(Call<List<Tipo_eventoDTO>> call, Throwable t) {
                Log.d("MainActivity", "error loading from API");



public class RetrofitClient {

    private static Retrofit retrofit = null;

    public static Retrofit getClient(String baseUrl){

        Log.d("RetrofitClient.LOGTAG", "HTTPClient");

        HttpLoggingInterceptor interceptor = new HttpLoggingInterceptor();
        OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient.Builder().addInterceptor(interceptor).build();

        if (retrofit == null){
            retrofit = new Retrofit.Builder()
        return retrofit;


public interface Tipo_eventoService {
    Call<List<Tipo_eventoDTO>> getAll();


Log output

For an ArrayList with long elements, how do you skip the first line?

I have an ArrayList of String where


AX225025 Equine influenza virus H3N8 // 8 (NS)


>LC335987 A/mute swan/Shimane/3211A001/2017 2017/11/05 8 (NS)

Is there a way to skip the title line so I can run analysis on the sequence without separating the title from the sequence completely?

How to get permission in android app?

I have problem with getting permission to save file from raw on phone. I have in manifest this:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permissions.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permissions.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

In java where I’m using onclick I have function to save file
saveTestButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

        public void onClick(View v) {

                InputStream in = null;
                FileOutputStream fout = null;
                try {
                    in = getResources().openRawResource(R.raw.testsound);
                    String downloadsDirectoryPath = Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory(Environment.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOADS).getAbsolutePath();
                    String filename = "testsound.mp3";
                    fout = new FileOutputStream(new File(downloadsDirectoryPath + filename));

                    final byte data[] = new byte[1024];
                    int count;
                    while ((count =, 0, 1024)) != -1) {
                        fout.write(data, 0, count);
                } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
                } catch (IOException e) {
                } finally {
                    if (in != null) {
                        try {
                        } catch (IOException e) {
                    if (fout != null) {
                        try {
                        } catch (IOException e) {


And that to check permission:

private static final int REQUEST_EXTERNAL_STORAGE = 1;
    private static String[] PERMISSIONS_STORAGE = {
public static void verifyStoragePermissions(Activity activity) {
    // Check if we have write permission
    int permission = ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(activity, Manifest.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE);

    if (permission != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
        // We don't have permission so prompt the user

And when I try to save this file by click the button in app I’m getting error :
W/System.err: /storage/emulated/0/Downloadtestsound.mp3: open failed: EACCES (Permission denied)

What is wrong? Pls help

Unit testing assertion error for when getting Flowable> from local Content Provider/Resolver

I’m testing out a RxJava approach with a Content Provider in a project. The test code instantiate my local data source:

and calls its getProperties() for querying. But I’m scratching my head as to why I fail the one assertion noted below:

    public void getProperties_retrievesSavedProperties() {
        // Given 2 new properties in the persistent repository
        final Property newItem1 = Injection.provideMockProperty(3,2.5f, "Los Angeles");
        mLocalDataSource.saveProperty(newItem1, null);
        final Property newItem2 = Injection.provideMockProperty(12,2.4f, "Irvine");
        mLocalDataSource.saveProperty(newItem2, null);

        // Then the tasks can be retrieved from the persistent repository
        TestSubscriber<List<Property>> testSubscriber = new TestSubscriber<>();
        List<Property> result = testSubscriber.values().get(0);

        // passed, assert the result would only have 2 entries

        // passed, assert the first item contain the same values
        Assert.assertEquals(newItem1.getNumRooms(), result.get(0).getNumRooms());
        Assert.assertEquals(2.5f, result.get(0).getNumBaths());
        Assert.assertEquals("Los Angeles", result.get(0).getAddress().getLocality());
        Assert.assertEquals(newItem1.getUid(), result.get(0).getUid());

        // passed, assert the second item contain the same values
        Assert.assertEquals(newItem2.getNumRooms(), result.get(1).getNumRooms());
        Assert.assertEquals(2.4f, result.get(1).getNumBaths());
        Assert.assertEquals("Irvine", result.get(1).getAddress().getLocality());
        Assert.assertEquals(newItem2.getUid(), result.get(1).getUid());

        // FAILED this assertion, ??? why
        // assertThat(result, hasItems(newItem1, newItem2));


Assertion Error

Expected: (a collection containing <Property with uid 4e7e8c8b-4c60-4529-bc66-969b409c89e2> and a collection containing <Property with uid ecabb243-8dff-422a-8dfb-2a8874fe0e81>)
but: a collection containing <Property with uid 4e7e8c8b-4c60-4529-bc66-969b409c89e2> was <Property with uid 4e7e8c8b-4c60-4529-bc66-969b409c89e2>, was <Property with uid ecabb243-8dff-422a-8dfb-2a8874fe0e81>

I’m designing the project with the MVP architecture. My implementation for the Local Data source uses Sqlbrite wrapper to wrap the content Resolver for querying items. I’m getting a very similar assertion error when I test getting a single item with id. I let my content provider handles the uri resolution and handle the database operation. Here is my code for the wrapped query in the :

public Flowable<List<Property>> getProperties() {
    Log.i(LOG_TAG,"getProperties called, getting properties with a content resolver query...");
    return mBriteContentResolver.createQuery(

I’m using the RxJava 2.0 with Sqlbrite 3.0, and following the Android-Architecture-Todo-RxJava example here.

Any tips or guidance would be greatly appreciated, thank you and have a nice day.
