Handling tag-writing errors

In this recipe, we will modify the NfcHelper write methods to throw both custom and native exceptions to allow us to correctly identify what went wrong during the write operation. This will make our applications more bulletproof and user friendly.

Getting ready

The following settings need to be configured for the recipe:

  • Make sure you have a working Android development environment. If you don't, ADT Bundle is a good kit to start with (http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html).
  • Make sure you have NFC-enabled Android device or a virtual test environment. Refer to the Testing your app all together recipe in Chapter 1, Getting Started with NFC.
  • It will be assumed that Eclipse is the development IDE.
