Homework 02 (100 points)
In this assignment you will get familiar with Android concurrency models. The app is a
password generator app to help the user to choose strong passwords. The User selects
how many passwords they want the app to generate, the length of each password and
then chooses one of them. This application is composed of two activities, namely the
Main Activity and GeneatedPasswords Activity.
Part 1: Main Activity (75 points):
The interface should be created to match the user interface (UI) presented in Figure 1.
You will be using layout files, and strings.xml to create the user interface. Perform the
following tasks:
1. The main activity contains 4 SeekBars, 2 for Threads and 2 for AsyncTasks.
2. You are provided with a Util class that contains a static method getPassword(int
length). The length is the length of the password to be generated. This method is
expected to take long time to execute and returns a random String password. Import
the provided Java file by simply dragging the file into the src folder under your
project package in Android Studio.
3. For Threading:
a. You should create a Thread Pool size of 2, and use the pool to execute your
created threads.
b. First 2 SeekBars are for Threads.
(a) Main screen (b) Progress dialog (c) GeneratedPasswords Activity

i. Select Password Count SeekBar: this is used to set the number of passwords
to be generated. The SeekBar minimum should be 1 and maximum 10. The
TextView beside the seeker should show the selected SeekBar progress
whenever the user changes the SeekBar progress (moves the SeekBar).
ii. Select Password Length SeekBar: this Seek bar is used to set the password
length. The SeekBar minimum should be 7 and maximum 23. The TextView
beside the seeker should show the selected SeekBar progress whenever the
user changes the SeekBar progress (moves the SeekBar).
4. For AsyncTask you will use AsyncTask instead of Threads.
5. Clicking on Generate button will start the execution for both the Threads and
AsyncTasks in the backgrounds, and display a progress dialog which displays the
progress of the Threads.
6. For Threads:
a. When you press the Generate button it should start the execution of a
background thread and return the list of all passwords (based on the selected
count and length) by using the getPassword() method. For example, if the count
was set to 5, the getPassword() method will run 5 times in the background
thread, and return 5 passwords. The list of these 5 passwords should be
returned to the main thread. While the passwords are being generated, display a
ProgressBar indicating the progress, see Figure1(b).
b. To be able to exchange messages between the child thread and the main thread
use the Handler class. Either use messaging or setup a runnable message.
c. The ProgressBar should not be cancelable. The ProgressBar should be
dismissed after all the getPassword() calls are completed.
7. For AsyncTasks:
a. It is similar to the tasks in Threads. You just need to do all the things using
AsyncTasks here.
8. After all the passwords received in the main Thread, create a new intent to start
GeneratedPasswords activity.
Part 2: GeneratedPasswords Activity (25 points):
In this activity, you should display the generated passwords. Perform the following
tasks:
1. Create two ScrollViews to display passwords generated using Threads and
AsyncTasks.
a. ScrollView for passwords generated using Threads: list all the generated
passwords using threads in a ScrollView and Dynamic Layout (Figure 1(c)).
HINT: use LayoutInflater.
b. Display another ScrollView for passwords generated using AsyncTasks (Figure
1(c)).
You need to implement Threads and AsyncTasks simultaneously in this
assignment. Clicking on Generate button will start everything altogether.
