3 - 2 ET5X Integrator Guide
CHAPTER 4 DATAWEDGE
CONFIGURATION
DataWedge Configuration
This chapter applies to DataWedge on Android devices. DataWedge is an application that reads data, processes
the data and sends the data to an application.
Basic Scanning
Scanning can be performed using the laser scanner or imager.
To capture bar code data:
1.
Ensure that an application is open on the ET5X and a text field is in focus (text cursor in text field).
2.
Aim the exit window at a bar code.
3.
Press the trigger button. Ensure the red scan beam covers the entire bar code. The Charging/Scan LED
Indicators illuminate green and a beep sounds to indicate a successful decode.
Profiles
DataWedge is based on profiles and plug-ins. A profile contains information on how DataWedge should behave
with different applications.
Profile information consists of:
• Associated application
• data capture plus configurations
• Input plug-in configurations
• Output plug-in configurations
• Process plug-in configurations.
Using profiles, each application can have a specific DataWedge configuration. For example, each user application
can have a profile which outputs scanned data in the required format when that application comes to the
4 - 2 ET5X Integrator Guide
foreground. DataWedge can be configured to process the same set of captured data differently based on the
requirements of each application.
DataWedge includes the following pre-configured profiles which support specific built-in applications:
• Profile0 - created automatically the first time DataWedge runs. Generic profile used when there are no user
created profiles associated with an application.
• Launcher - disables scanning when the Launcher is in foreground.
• DWDemo - provides support for the DWDemo application.
Some Zebra applications are capable of capturing data by scanning. DataWedge is pre-loaded with private and
hidden profiles for this purpose. There is no option to modify these private profiles.
Profile0
Profile0 can be edited but cannot be associated with an application. That is, DataWedge allows manipulation of
plug-in settings for Profile0 but it does not allow assignment of a foreground application. This configuration allows
DataWedge to send output data to any foreground application other than applications associated with user-defined
profiles when Profile0 is enabled.
Profile0 can be disabled to allow DataWedge to only send output data to those applications which are associated
in user-defined profiles. For example, create a profile associating a specific application, disable Profile0 and then
scan. DataWedge only sends data to the application specified in the user-created profile. This adds additional
security to DataWedge enabling the sending of data only to specified applications.
Plug-ins
A plug-in is a software module utilized in DataWedge to extend its functionality to encompass technologies such as
bar code scanning. The plug-ins can be categorized into three types based on their operations:
• Input Plug-ins
• Output Plug-ins
• Process Plug-ins.
Input Plug-ins
An Input Plug-in supports an input device, such as a bar code scanner contained in, or attached to the device.
DataWedge contains base plug-ins for these input devices.
• Bar Code Scanner Input Plug-in – The Bar Code Scanner Input Plug-in is responsible for reading data from
the integrated bar code scanner and supports different types of bar code readers including laser, imager and
internal camera. Raw data read from the bar code scanner can be processed or formatted using Process
Plug-ins as required. DataWedge has built-in feedback functionality for the bar code scanner to issue user
alerts. The feedback settings can be configured according to user requirement.
Process Plug-ins
Process Plug-ins are used in DataWedge to manipulate the received data according to the requirement, before
sending to the foreground application via the Output Plug-in.
• Advanced Data Formatting Process Plug-in – The Advanced Data Formatting Plug-in allows DataWedge
to apply rules (actions to be performed based on defined criteria) to the data received via an input plug-in
before passing it to an Output Plug-in.
DataWedge Configuration 4 - 3
• Basic Data Formatting Process Plug-in – The Basic Data Formatting Plug-in allows DataWedge to add a
prefix and/or a suffix to the captured data before passing it to an Output Plug-in.
Output Plug-ins
Output Plug-ins are responsible for sending the data from Input Plug-ins to a foreground application on the device.
• Keystroke Output Plug-in – The Keystroke Output Plug-in collects and sends data received from the Input
Plug-in to the foreground applications by emulating keystrokes.
• Intent Output Plug-in – The Intent Output Plug-in collects and sends data received from the Input Plug-ins
to foreground applications using the Android Intent mechanism.
• IP Output Plug-in – The IP Output Plug-in collects and sends data received from the Input Plug-ins to a host
computer via a network connection. Captured data can be sent over an IP network to a specified IP address
and port using either TCP or UDP transport protocols.
Profiles Screen
To launch DataWedge, touch
> DataWedge. By default, three profiles appear:
• Profile0
• Launcher
• DWDemo.
Profile0 is the default profile and is used when no other profile can be applied.

the special Bookland check digit for backward-compatibility. Data starting with 979 is not considered
Bookland in this mode. (default)
• Format ISBN-13 - The decoder reports Bookland data (starting with either 978 or 979) as EAN-13 in
13-digit format to meet the 2007 ISBN-13 protocol.
• Coupon - Enables Coupon code decoding. Note that in order to successfully decode Coupon codes, all of
the correct decoders must be enabled. A check in the checkbox indicates that the option is enabled.
• Coupon Repost Mode - Traditional coupon symbols are composed of two bar code: UPC/EAN and Code
128. A new coupon symbol is composed of a single Data Expanded bar code. The new format offers more
options for purchase values (up to $999.999) and supports complex discount offers as a second purchase
requirement. An interim coupon symbol also exists that contain both types of bar codes: UPC/EAN and
Databar Expanded. This format accommodates both retailers that do not recognize or use the additional
information included in the new coupon symbol, as well as those who can process new coupon symbols.
• Old Coupon Report Mode - Scanning an old coupon symbol reports both UPC and Code 128, scanning
is interim coupon symbol reports UPC, and scanning a new coupon symbol reports nothing (no decode).
• New Coupon Report Mode - Scanning an old coupon symbol reports either UPC or Code 128, and
scanning an interim coupon symbol or a new coupon symbol reports Databar Expanded.
• Both Coupon Report Modes - Scanning an old coupon symbol reports both UPC and Code 128, and
scanning an interim coupon symbol or a new coupon symbol reports Databar Expanded.
• Ean Zero Extended – Enable this parameter to add five leading zeros to decoded EAN-8 symbols to make
them compatible in format to EAN-13 symbols. Disable this to transmit EAN-8 symbols as is. Default –
disabled.
• Linear Decode - This option applies to code types containing two adjacent blocks (e.g., UPC-A, EAN-8,
EAN-13). Enable this parameter to transmit a bar code only when both the left and right blocks are
successfully decoded within one laser scan. Enable this option when bar codes are in proximity to each
other.
• Retry Count - Retry count for auto-discriminating for supplementals. Possible values are 2 to 20 inclusive.
Note that this flag is only considered if Supplemental Mode - UPC EAN is set to one of the following values:
Supplementals Auto, Supplementals Smart, Supplementals 378-379, Supplementals 978-979,
Supplementals 977 or Supplementals 414-419-434-439 (2 to 20, default 10).
• Security Level - The scanner offers four levels of decode security for UPC/EAN bar codes. Select higher
security levels for lower quality bar codes. There is an inverse relationship between security and decode
speed, so be sure to choose only that level of security necessary for the application.
• Level 0 - This default setting allows the scanner to operate fastest, while providing sufficient security in
decoding “in-spec” UPC/EAN bar codes (default).
• Level 1 - As bar code quality levels diminish, certain characters become prone to misdecodes before
others (i.e., 1, 2, 7, 8). If the scanner is misdecoding poorly printed bar codes, and the misdecodes are
limited to these characters, select this security level.
• Level 2 - If the scanner is misdecoding poorly printed bar codes, and the misdecodes are not limited to
characters 1, 2, 7, and 8, select this security level.
• Level 3 - If the scanner is still misdecoding, select this security level. Be advised, selecting this option is
an extreme measure against misdecoding severely out of spec bar codes. Selecting this level of security
DataWedge Configuration 4 - 21
can significantly impair the decoding ability of the scanner. If this level of security is necessary, try to
improve the quality of the bar codes.
• Supplemental2 - Enables or disables this option. A check in the checkbox indicates that the option is
enabled.
• Supplemental5 - Enables or disables this option. A check in the checkbox indicates that the option is
enabled.
• Supplemental Mode
• No Supplementals - the scanner is presented with a UPC/EAN plus supplemental symbol, the scanner
decodes UPC/EAN and ignores the supplemental characters (default).
• Supplemental Always - the scanner only decodes UPC/EAN symbols with supplemental characters, and
ignores symbols without supplementals.
• Supplements Auto - the scanner decodes UPC/EAN symbols with supplemental characters immediately.
If the symbol does not have a supplemental, the scanner must decode the bar code the number of times
set via UPC/EAN Supplemental Redundancy before transmitting its data to confirm that there is no
supplemental.
• Supplemental Smart - Enables smart supplementals. In this mode the decoder returns the decoded
value of the main block right away if it does not belong to one of the following supplemental types: 378,
379, 977, 978, 979, 414, 419, 434 or 439. If the bar code starts with one of the prefixes it searches the
image more aggressively for a supplemental. Tries to scan the supplemental if it is present. If the
supplemental scanning failed, then the main bar code is returned.
• Supplemental 378-379 - Enables (auto-discriminate) supplemental for UPC/EAN codes starting with 378
or 379. Disables reading of supplementals for any other UPC/EAN bar code not starting with 378 or 379.
Tries to scan the supplemental if it is present. If the supplemental scanning failed, then the main bar code
is returned.
• Supplemental 978-979 - Enables (auto-discriminate) supplemental for UPC/EAN codes starting with 978
or 979. Disables reading of supplementals for another UPC/EAN bar code not starting with 978 or 979.
Tries to scan the supplemental if it is present. If the supplemental scanning failed, then the main bar code
is returned.
• Supplemental 414-419-434-439 - Enables (auto-discriminate) supplemental for UPC/EAN codes starting
with 414, 419, 434 or 439. Disables reading of supplementals for another UPC/EAN bar code 4 - 16 not
starting with 414, 419, 434 or 439. Tries to scan the supplemental if it is present. If the supplemental
scanning failed, then the main bar code is returned.
• Supplemental 977 - Enables (auto-discriminate) supplemental for UPC/EAN codes starting with 977.
Disables reading of supplementals for another UPC/EAN bar code not starting with 977. Tries to scan the
supplemental if it is present. If the supplemental scanning failed, then the main bar code is returned.
Reader Params
Allows the configuration of parameters specific to the selected bar code reader.
• 1D Quiet Zone Level - Sets the level of aggressiveness in decoding bar codes with a reduced quiet zone
(the area in front of and at the end of a bar code), and applies to symbologies enabled by a Reduced Quiet
Zone parameter. Because higher levels increase the decoding time and risk of misdecodes, Zebra strongly
recommends enabling only the symbologies which require higher quiet zone levels, and leaving Reduced
Quiet Zone disabled for all other symbologies. Options are:
• 0 - The scanner performs normally in terms of quiet zone.
• 1 - The scanner performs more aggressively in terms of quiet zone (default).
• 2 - The scanner only requires one side EB (end of bar code) for decoding.
• 3 - The scanner decodes anything in terms of quiet zone or end of bar code.

Intent Overview
The core components of an Android application (its activities, services, and broadcast receivers) are activated by
intents. An intent is a bundle of information (an Intent object) describing a desired action - including the data to be
acted upon, the category of component that should perform the action, and other pertinent instructions. Android
locates an appropriate component to respond to the intent, launches a new instance of the component if one is
needed, and passes it the Intent object.
Components advertise their capabilities, the kinds of intents they can respond to, through intent filters. Since the
system must learn which intents a component can handle before it launches the component, intent filters are
specified in the manifest as <intent-filter> elements. A component may have any number of filters, each one
describing a different capability. For example, if the manifest contains the following:
<intent-filter . . . >
<action android:name=”android.intent.action.DEFAULT” />
<category android:name=”android.intent.category.MAIN” />
</intent-filter>
In the Intent output plug-in configuration, the Intent action would be:
android.intent.category.DEFAULT
and the Intent category would be:
android.intent.category.MAIN.
The Intent delivery option allows the method by which the intent is delivered to be specified. The delivery
mechanisms are Send via startActivity, Send via startService or Broadcast intent.
The decode related data added to the Intent’s bundle can be retrieved using the
Intent.getStringExtra() and Intent.getSerializableExtra() calls, using the following
String tags:
• String LABEL_TYPE_TAG = “com.symbol.emdk.datawedge.label_type”;
• String contains the label type of the bar code.
4 - 26 ET5X Integrator Guide
• String DATA_STRING_TAG = “com.symbol.emdk.datawedge.data_string”;
• String contains the output data as a String. In the case of concatenated bar codes, the decode data is
concatenated and sent out as a single string.
• String DECODE_DATA_TAG = “com.symbol.emdk.datawedge.decode_data”;
• Decode data is returned as a list of byte arrays. In most cases there will be one byte array per decode. For
bar code symbologies that support concatenation e.g. Codabar, Code128, MicroPDF, etc., the decoded
data is stored in multiple byte arrays (one byte array per bar code). Clients can get data in each byte array
by passing an index.
Most scanning applications might want the user to be able to decode data and for that decode data to be sent to
the *current* activity but not necessarily displayed. If this is the case, then the activity needs to be marked as
‘singleTop’ in its AndroidManifest.xml file. If your activity is not defined as singleTop, then on every decode, the
system will create another copy of your Activity and send the decode data to this second copy.
Finally there will be a configuration option for each process plug-in so that the process plug-in can be configured
specifically for the intent output, which in this case is the basic data formatting process plug-in.
IP Output
NOTE IPWedge application is required on a host computer. Download the IPWedge application from the Support

Generating Advanced Data Formatting Rules
The ADF plug-in applies rules (actions to be performed based on defined criteria) to the data received via an input
plug-in before sending it to the output plug-in.
• Rules - The ADF process plug-in consists of one or more rules. DataWedge formats the output data
according to the first matching rule. A rule is a combination of criteria and a set of actions to be performed,
upon fulfillment of the criteria set in the rule.
• Criteria - Criteria can be set according to Input plug-in, symbology, matching string within the data (at the
specified position) and/or data length. Received data must match the defined criteria in order for the data to
be processed.
• Actions - A set of procedures defined to format data. There are four types of actions which are for formatting
cursor movement, data modification, data sending and delay specifications. An action can be defined to send
the first number of characters to the Output plug-in, pad the output data with spaces or zeros, remove spaces
in data, etc.

Configuration and Profile File Management
The configuration or profile settings for DataWedge can be saved to a file for distribution to other devices.
After making configuration or profile changes, export the new configuration or profile to the root of the Internal
Storage. The configuration file created is automatically named datawedge.db. The profile file created is
automatically named dwprofile_x.db, where x is the profile name. The files can then the copied to the Internal
Storage of other devices and imported into DataWedge on those devices. Importing a configuration or profile
replaces the existing settings.
Enterprise Folder
Internal storage contains the Enterprise folder (/enterprise). The Enterprise folder is persistent and maintains data
after an Enterprise reset. After an Enterprise Reset, DataWedge checks folder
/enterprise/device/settings/datawedge/enterprisereset/for a configuration file, datawedge.db or a profile file,
dwprofile_x.db. If the file is found, it imports the file to replace any existing configuration or profile.
NOTE A Factory Reset deletes all files in the Enterprise folder.
Auto Import
DataWedge supports remote deployment of a configuration to a device, using tools such as MSP. DataWedge
monitors the /enterprise/device/settings/datawedge/autoimport folder for the DataWedge configuration file
(datawedge.db) or a profile file (dwprofile_x.db). When DataWedge launches it checks the folder. If a configuration
or profile file is found, it imports the file to replace any existing configuration or profile. Once the file has been
imported it is deleted from the folder.
While DataWedge is running it receives a notification from the system that a file has been placed into the
/enterprise/device/settings/datawedge/autoimport folder. When this occurs, DataWedge imports this new
configuration or profile, replacing the existing one and delete the file. DataWedge begins using the imported
configuration immediately.
NOTE A Factory Reset deletes all files in the Enterprise folder.
It is strongly recommended that the user exits DataWedge before remotely deploying any configuration or
profile. It is required that the file permissions are set to 666.
Programming Notes
The following paragraphs provide specific programming information when using DataWedge.
Overriding Trigger Key in an Application
To override the trigger key in an application, create a profile for the application that disables the Barcode input. In
the application, use standard APIs, such as onKeyDown() to listen for the KEYCODE_BUTTON_L1 and
KEYCODE_BUTTON_R1 presses.
DataWedge Configuration 4 - 41
Capture Data and Taking a Photo in the Same Application
To be able to capture bar code data and take a photo in the same application:
• Create a Datawedge profile pertaining to the picture taking Activity in your application that disables scanning
and use standard Android SDK APIs to control the Camera.
• The default Datawedge profile takes care of the scanning in the application. You might want to create another
DataWedge profile that caters to any specific scanning needs, associated to your Application's Activity
pertaining to scanning.
Soft Scan Feature
DataWedge allows a native Android application to programmatically start, stop, or toggle the scan trigger state. The
application can issue an Android Broadcast Intent, to control the scanner, without requiring the scan key to be
pressed. The active DataWedge profile is required to control all the parameters during a scan operation.
The structure of the broadcast intent that resolves to the soft scan is:
action: “com.symbol.emdk.datawedge.api.ACTION_SOFTSCANTRIGGER”
extras: This is a String name/value pair that contains trigger state details.
name: “com.symbol.emdk.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PARAMETER”
value: “START_SCANNING” or “STOP_SCANNING” or “TOGGLE_SCANNING”
Sample
Intent sendIntent = new Intent();
sendIntent.setAction(“com.symbol.emdk.datawedge.api.ACTION_SOFTSCANTRIGGER”);
sendIntent.putExtra(“com.symbol.emdk.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PARAMETER”,
“TOGGLE_SCANNING”);
sendBroadcast(sendIntent);
Scanner Input Plugin
The ScannerInputPlugin API command can be used to enable/disable the scanner plug-in being used by the
currently active Profile. Disabling the scanner plug-in effectively disables scanning in that Profile, regardless of
whether the Profile is associated or unassociated. Valid only when Barcode Input is enabled in the active Profile.
NOTE Use of this API changes only the runtime status of the scanner; it does not make persistent changes to the
Profile.
Function Prototype
Intent i = new Intent();
i.setAction(ACTION);
i.putExtra(EXTRA_DATA, "<parameter>");
4 - 42 ET5X Integrator Guide
Parameters
action: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SCANNERINPUTPLUGIN"
extra_data: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PARAMETER"
<parameter>: The parameter as a string, using either of the following:
• "ENABLE_PLUGIN" - enables the plug-in
• "DISABLE_PLUGIN" - disables the plug-in
Return Values
None.
Error and debug messages will be logged to the Android logging system which then can be viewed and filtered by
the logcat command. You can use logcat from an ADB shell to view the log messages, e.g.
$ adb logcat -s DWAPI
Error messages will be logged for invalid actions and parameters.
Example
// define action and data strings
String scannerInputPlugin =
"com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SCANNERINPUTPLUGIN";
String extraData = "com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PARAMETER";
public void onResume() {
// create the intent
Intent i = new Intent();
// set the action to perform
i.setAction(scannerInputPlugin);
// add additional info
i.putExtra(extraData, "DISABLE_PLUGIN");
// send the intent to DataWedge
context.this.sendBroadcast(i);
}
Comments
This Data Capture API intent allows the scanner plug-in for the current Profile to be enabled or disabled. For
example, activity A launches and uses the Data Capture API intent to switch to ProfileA in which the scanner
plug-in is enabled, then at some point it uses the Data Capture API to disable the scanner plug-in. Activity B is
launched. In DataWedge, ProfileB is associated with activity B. DataWedge switches to ProfileB. When activity A
comes back to the foreground, in the onResume method, activity A needs to use the Data Capture API intent to
switch back to ProfileA, then use the Data Capture API intent again to disable the scanner plug-in, to return back to
the state it was in.
DataWedge Configuration 4 - 43
NOTE Use of this API changes only the runtime status of the scanner; it does not make persistent changes to the
Profile.
The above assumes that ProfileA is not associated with any applications/activities, therefore when focus
switches back to activity A, DataWedge will not automatically switch to ProfileA therefore activity A must
switch back to ProfileA in its onResume method. Because DataWedge will automatically switch Profile
when an activity is paused, it is recommended that this API function be called from the onResume method
of the activity.
Enumerate Scanners
Use the enumerateScanners API command to get a list of scanners available on the device.
Function Prototype
Intent i = new Intent();
i.setAction(ACTION);
Parameters
action: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_ENUMERATESCANNERS"
Return Values
The enumerated list of scanners will be returned via a broadcast Intent. The broadcast Intent action is
"com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_ENUMERATEDSCANNERLIST" and the list of scanners is returned as a
string array (see the example below).
Error and debug messages will be logged to the Android logging system which then can be viewed and filtered by
the logcat command. You can use logcat from an ADB shell to view the log messages, e.g.
$ adb logcat -s DWAPI
Error messages will be logged for invalid actions and parameters
4 - 44 ET5X Integrator Guide
Example
// first send the intent to enumerate the available scanners on the device
// define action string
String enumerateScanners = "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_ENUMERATESCANNERS";
// create the intent
Intent i = new Intent();
// set the action to perform
i.setAction(enumerateScanners);
// send the intent to DataWedge
context.this.sendBroadcast(i);
// now we need to be able to receive the enumerate list of available scanners
String enumeratedList = "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_ENUMERATEDSCANNERLIST";
String KEY_ENUMERATEDSCANNERLIST = "DataWedgeAPI_KEY_ENUMERATEDSCANNERLIST";
// Create a filter for the broadcast intent
IntentFilter filter = new IntentFilter();
filter.addAction(enumeratedList);
registerReceiver(myBroadcastReceiver, filter);
// now we need a broadcast receiver
private BroadcastReceiver myBroadcastReceiver = new BroadcastReceiver() {
@Override
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
String action = intent.getAction();
if (action.equals(enumeratedList)) {
Bundle b = intent.getExtras();
String[] scanner_list = b.getStringArray(KEY_ENUMERATEDSCANNERLIST);
}
}
};
Comments
The scanner and its parameters are set based on the currently active Profile.
Set Default Profile
Use the setDefaultProfile API function to set the specified Profile as the default Profile.
Default Profile Recap
Profile0 is the generic Profile used when there are no user created Profiles associated with an application.
DataWedge Configuration 4 - 45
Profile0 can be edited but cannot be associated with an application. That is, DataWedge allows manipulation of
plug-in settings for Profile0 but it does not allow assignment of a foreground application. This configuration allows
DataWedge to send output data to any foreground application other than applications associated with user-defined
Profiles when Profile0 is enabled.
Profile0 can be disabled to allow DataWedge to only send output data to those applications which are associated in
user-defined Profiles. For example, create a Profile associating a specific application, disable Profile0 and then
scan. DataWedge only sends data to the application specified in the user-created Profile. This adds additional
security to DataWedge enabling the sending of data only to specified applications.
Usage Scenario
A launcher application has a list of apps that a user can launch and that none of the listed apps has an associated
DataWedge Profile. Once the user has selected an app, the launcher needs to set the appropriate DataWedge
Profile for the selected app. This could be done by using setDefaultProfile to set the default Profile to the
required Profile. Then when the user launches the selected app, DataWedge auto Profile switching switches to the
default Profile (which is now the required Profile for that app).
If, for some reason, the launched app has an associated DataWedge Profile then that will override the set default
Profile.
When control is returned to the launcher application, resetDefaultProfile can be used to reset the default
Profile.
Function Prototype
Intent i = new Intent();
i.setAction(ACTION);
i.putExtra(EXTRA_DATA, "<profile name>");
Parameters
action: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SETDEFAULTPROFILE"
extra_data: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PROFILENAME"
<profile name>: The Profile name to set as the default Profile as a string (case-sensitive).
Return Values
None.
Error and debug messages will be logged to the Android logging system which then can be viewed and filtered by
the logcat command. You can use logcat from an ADB shell to view the log messages, e.g.
$ adb logcat -s DWAPI
Error messages will be logged for invalid actions, parameters and failures (e.g. Profile not found or associated with
an application).
4 - 46 ET5X Integrator Guide
Example
// define action and data strings
String setDefaultProfile = "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SETDEFAULTPROFILE";
String extraData = "com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PROFILENAME";
public void onResume() {
// create the intent
Intent i = new Intent();
// set the action to perform
i.setAction(setDefaultProfile);
// add additional info
i.putExtra(extraData, "myProfile");
// send the intent to DataWedge
context.this.sendBroadcast(i);
}
Comments
The API command will have no effect if the specified Profile does not exist or if the specified Profile is already
associated with an application. DataWedge will automatically switch Profiles when the activity is paused, so it is
recommended that this API function be called from the onResume method of the activity.
Zebra recommends that this Profile be created to cater to all applications/activities that would otherwise default to
using Profile0. This will ensure that these applications/activities continue to work with a consistent configuration.
For example, let’s say that initially Profile0 is the default Profile using the camera as the barcode scanner. Using
the Browser application and scanning a barcode with the camera, DataWedge enters the data into the Browser.
Now launch an application that changes the default Profile to a Profile using the blockbuster as the barcode
scanner. When returning to the Browser application, since it is using the default Profile, scanning will now be via
the blockbuster not the camera as previously. To ensure that the Browser continues to use the camera as the
barcode scanner a Profile should be created and associated with the Browser that specifies the camera as the
barcode scanner.
DataWedge Configuration 4 - 47
Reset Default Profile
Use the resetDefaultProfile API function to reset the default Profile back to Profile0.
Function Prototype
Intent i = new Intent();
i.setAction(ACTION);
i.putExtra(EXTRA_DATA, "<Profile name>");
Parameters
action: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_RESETDEFAULTPROFILE"
extra_data: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PROFILENAME"
<Profile name>: The Profile name to set as the default Profile as a string (case-sensitive).
Return Values
None.
Error and debug messages will be logged to the Android logging system which then can be viewed and filtered by
the logcat command. You can use logcat from an ADB shell to view the log messages, e.g.
$ adb logcat -s DWAPI
Error messages will be logged for invalid actions, parameters and failures (e.g. Profile not found or associated with
an application).
Example
// define action string
String resetDefaultProfile =
"com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_RESETDEFAULTPROFILE";
public void onResume() {
// create the intent
Intent i = new Intent();
// set the action to perform
i.setAction(resetDefaultProfile);
context.this.sendBroadcast(i);
}
Comments
None.

Switch To Profile
Use the SwitchToProfile API action to switch to the specified Profile.
Profiles Recap
DataWedge is based on Profiles and plug-ins. A Profile contains information on how DataWedge should behave
with different applications.
Profile information consists of:
• Associated application
• Input plug-in configurations
• Output plug-in configurations
• Process plug-in configurations
DataWedge includes a default Profile, Profile0, that is created automatically the first time DataWedge runs.
Using Profiles, each application can have a specific DataWedge configuration. For example, each user application
can have a Profile which outputs scanned data in the required format when that application comes to the
foreground. DataWedge can be configured to process the same set of captured data differently based on the
requirements of each application.
NOTE A single Profile may be associated with one or many activities/apps, however, given an activity, only one
Profile may be associated with it.
Usage Scenario
An application has two activities. Activity A only requires EAN13 bar codes to be scanned. Activity B only requires
MSR card data. Profile B is configured to only scan EAN13 bar codes and is left unassociated. Profile M is
configured to only accept MSR input and is left unassociated. When Activity A launches it uses SwitchToProfile to
activate Profile B. Similarly, when Activity B launches it uses switchToProfile to activate Profile M.
If another activity/app comes to the foreground, DataWedge auto Profile switching will set the DataWedge Profile
accordingly either to the default Profile or to an associated Profile.
When Activity A (or Activity B) comes back to the foreground it will use switchToProfile to reset the Profile back to
Profile B (or Profile M).
Function Prototype
Intent i = new Intent();
i.setAction(ACTION);
i.putExtra(EXTRA_DATA, "<profile name>");
Parameters
action: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SWITCHTOPROFILE"
extra_data: String "com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PROFILENAME"
<profile name>: The Profile name to switch to as a string (case-sensitive).
DataWedge Configuration 4 - 49
Return Values
None.
Error and debug messages will be logged to the Android logging system which then can be viewed and filtered by
the logcat command. You can use logcat from an ADB shell to view the log messages, e.g.
$ adb logcat -s DWAPI
Error messages will be logged for invalid actions, parameters and failures (e.g. Profile not found or associated with
an application).
Example
// define action and data strings
String switchToProfile = "com.symbol.datawedge.api.ACTION_SWITCHTOPROFILE";
String extraData = "com.symbol.datawedge.api.EXTRA_PROFILENAME";
public void onResume() {
super.onResume();
// create the intent
Intent i = new Intent();
// set the action to perform
i.setAction(switchToProfile);
// add additional info
i.putExtra(extraData, "myProfile");
// send the intent to DataWedge
context.this.sendBroadcast(i);
}
Comments
This API function will have no effect if the specified Profile does not exist or is already associated with an
application.
DataWedge has a one-to-one relationship between Profiles and activities; a Profile can be associated only with a
single activity. When a Profile is first created, it's not associated with any application, and will not be activated until
associated. This makes it possible to create multiple unassociated Profiles.
This API function activates such Profiles.
For example, Profile A is unassociated and Profile B is associated with activity B. If activity A is launched and uses
SwitchToProfile function to switch to Profile A, then Profile A will be active ehenever activity A is in the
foreground. When activity B comes to the foreground, DataWedge will automatically switch to Profile B.
When activity A returns to the foreground, the app must use SwitchToProfile again to switch back to Profile A.
This would be done in the onResume method of activity A.
4 - 50 ET5X Integrator Guide
NOTE Because DataWedge will automatically switch Profile when the activity is paused, Zebra recommends that
this API function be called from the onResume method of the activity.
After switching to a Profile, this unassociated Profile does not get assigned to the application/activity and
is available to be used in the future with a different app/activity.
For backward compatibility, DataWedge’s automatic Profile switching is not affected by the above API
commands. This why the commands work only with unassociated Profiles and apps.
DataWedge auto Profile switching works as follows:
Every second…
• Sets newProfileId to the associated Profile ID of the current foreground activity.
• If no associated Profile is found, sets newProfileId to the associated Profile ID of the current foreground app.
• If no associated Profile is found, sets newProfileId to the current default Profile (which MAY NOT be Profile0).
• Checks the newProfileId against the currentProfileId. If they are different:
• deactivates current Profile
• activates new Profile (newProfileId)
• sets currentProfileId = newProfileId

CHAPTER 6 APPLICATION
DEPLOYMENT
Security
The device implements a set of security policies that determine whether an application is allowed to run and, if
allowed, with what level of trust. To develop an application, you must know the security configuration of the device,
and how to sign an application with the appropriate certificate to allow the application to run (and to run with the
needed level of trust).
NOTE Ensure the date is set correctly before installing certificates or when accessing secure web sites.
Secure Certificates
If the VPN or Wi-Fi networks rely on secure certificates, obtain the certificates and store them in the device’s
secure credential storage, before configuring access to the VPN or Wi-Fi networks.
If downloading the certificates from a web site, set a password for the credential storage. The device supports
X.509 certificates saved in PKCS#12 key store files with a .p12 extension (if key store has a .pfx or other
extension, change to .p12).
The device also installs any accompanying private key or certificate authority certificates contained in the key store.
Installing a Secure Certificate
1.
Copy the certificate from the host computer to the root of the Internal Storage. See Chapter 3, USB
Communication for information about connecting the device to a host computer and copying files.
2.
Touch
3.
Touch Install from Storage.
4.
Navigate to the location of the certificate file.
5.
Touch the filename of the certificate to install. Only the names of certificates not already installed display.
6.
If prompted, enter the certificate’s password and touch OK.
>
Security.
6 - 2 ET5X Integrator Guide
7.
Enter a name for the certificate and touch OK. If a password has not been set for the credential storage, enter
a password for it twice and then touch OK.
The certificate can now be used when connecting to a secure network. For security, the certificate is deleted
from the Internal Storage.
Development Tools
Android
Android development tools are available at http://developer.android.com.
To start developing applications for the device, download the development SDK and the Eclipse IDE. Development
can take place on a Microsoft® Windows®, Mac® OS X®, or Linux® operating system.
Applications are written in the Java language, but compiled and executed in the Dalvik VM (a non-Java virtual
machine). Once the Java code is compiled cleanly, the developer tools make sure the application is packaged
properly, including the AndroidManifest.xml file.
The development SDK is distributed as a ZIP file that unpacks to a directory on the host computer hard drive. The
SDK includes:
• android.jar
• Java archive file containing all of the development SDK classes necessary to build an application.
• documention.html and docs directory
• The SDK documentation is provided locally and on the Web. It's largely in the form of JavaDocs, making it
easy to navigate the many packages in the SDK. The documentation also includes a high-level
Development Guide and links to the broader community.
• Samples directory
• The samples subdirectory contains full source code for a variety of applications, including ApiDemo, which
exercises many APIs. The sample application is a great place to explore when starting application
development.
• Tools directory
• Contains all of the command-line tools to build applications. The most commonly employed and useful tool
is the adb utility.
• usb_driver
• Directory containing the necessary drivers to connect the development environment to an enabled device.
These files are only required for developers using the Windows platform.

Storage
The device contains four types of file storage:
• Random Access Memory (RAM)
• External storage
• Internal storage
Application Deployment 6 - 11
• Enterprise folder.
Random Access Memory
Executing programs use RAM to store data. Data stored in RAM is lost upon a reset.
The operating system manages how applications use RAM. It only allows applications and component processes
and services to use RAM when required. It may cache recently used processes in RAM, so they restart more
quickly when opened again, but it will erase the cache if it needs the RAM for new activities.
To view the amount of free and used memory, touch
appears.
Figure 6-2
> Apps. Swipe the screen until the Running screen
Running Screen
The bar at the bottom of the screen displays the amount of used and free RAM.
Internal Storage
The ET5X has internal storage. The internal storage content can be viewed and files copied to and from when the
ET5X is connected to a host computer. Some applications are designed to be stored on the internal storage rather
than in internal memory.

Enterprise Folder
The Enterprise folder (within internal flash) is a super-persistent storage that is persistent after a reset and an
Enterprise Reset. The Enterprise folder is erased during a Factory Reset. The Enterprise folder is used for
deployment and device-unique data. The Enterprise folder is approximately 128 MB (formatted). Applications can
persist data after an Enterprise Reset by saving data to the enterprise/user folder. The folder is ext4 formatted and
is only accessible from a host computer using ADB or from an MDM.
