Why I created this library?

My explanation about why jmDNS, Android NSD Services and Google Nearby API are not good enough, and why I maintain this library.

Hierarchy

There are two version of mDNSReposder.

Binaries

My dnssd library:

compile 'com.github.andriydruk:dnssd:0.9.11'

My rxdnssd library:

compile 'com.github.andriydruk:rxdnssd:0.9.11'

My rx2dnssd library:

compile 'com.github.andriydruk:rx2dnssd:0.9.11'
  • It's built with Andorid NDK r18b for all platforms (1.7 MB). If you prefer another NDK version or subset of platforms, please build it from source with command:
./gradlew clean build

How to use

DNSSD

Dnssd library provides two implementations of DNSSD interface:

DNSSDBindable is an implementation of DNSSD with system's daemon. Use it for Android project with min API higher than 4.1 for an economy of battery consumption (Also some Samsung devices can don't work with this implementation).

DNSSD dnssd = new DNSSDBindable(context); 

DNSSDEmbedded is an implementation of RxDnssd with embedded DNS-SD core. Can be used for any Android device with min API higher than Android 4.0.

DNSSD dnssd = new DNSSDEmbedded(); 
Register service
try {
	registerService = dnssd.register("service_name", "_rxdnssd._tcp", 123,  
   		new RegisterListener() {

			@Override
			public void serviceRegistered(DNSSDRegistration registration, int flags, 
				String serviceName, String regType, String domain) {
				Log.i("TAG", "Register successfully ");
			}

			@Override
         	public void operationFailed(DNSSDService service, int errorCode) {
				Log.e("TAG", "error " + errorCode);
        	}
   		});
} catch (DNSSDException e) {
	Log.e("TAG", "error", e);
}
Browse services example
try {
	browseService = dnssd.browse("_rxdnssd._tcp", new BrowseListener() {
                
 		@Override
		public void serviceFound(DNSSDService browser, int flags, int ifIndex, 
			final String serviceName, String regType, String domain) {
			Log.i("TAG", "Found " + serviceName);
		}

		@Override
		public void serviceLost(DNSSDService browser, int flags, int ifIndex, 
			String serviceName, String regType, String domain) {
			Log.i("TAG", "Lost " + serviceName);
		}

		@Override
		public void operationFailed(DNSSDService service, int errorCode) {
			Log.e("TAG", "error: " + errorCode);
		}        
	});
} catch (DNSSDException e) {
	Log.e("TAG", "error", e);
}

RxDNSSD

  • RxDnssdBindable
RxDnssd rxdnssd = new RxDnssdBindable(context); 
  • RxDnssdEmbedded
RxDnssd rxdnssd = new RxDnssdEmbedded(); 
Register service
BonjourService bs = new BonjourService.Builder(0, 0, Build.DEVICE, "_rxdnssd._tcp", null).port(123).build();
Subscription subscription = rxdnssd.register(bonjourService)
      .observeOn(AndroidSchedulers.mainThread())
      .subscribe(service -> {
      		updateUi();
      }, throwable -> {
        	Log.e("DNSSD", "Error: ", throwable);
      });
Browse services example
Subscription subscription = rxDnssd.browse("_http._tcp", "local.")
	.compose(rxDnssd.resolve())
    .compose(rxDnssd.queryRecords())
    .subscribeOn(Schedulers.io())
    .observeOn(AndroidSchedulers.mainThread())
    .subscribe(new Action1<BonjourService>() {
    	@Override
        public void call(BonjourService bonjourService) {
        	Log.d("TAG", bonjourService.toString());
        }
    }, new Action1<Throwable>() {
        @Override
        public void call(Throwable throwable) {
        	Log.e("TAG", "error", throwable);
        }
	});
