keepclasseswithmembernames and keepclasseswithmembers difference

Some of the important attributes in proguard project properties include

-keep attribute
can be used with class, inteface enum etc

eg: -keep class com.smartandroidians.views.FloatingActionButtonBehavior which is not used in any java class and only used in xml files just like a string as


proguard remove this class because it feels like it is not used anywhere but it is a very important class  for the app rather floating button to function.

1) You can do something like this,
-keep class com.smartandroidians.views.FloatingActionButtonBehavior { *; }

or rather better approach is

2) -keepclasseswithmembernames class * {
    public (android.content.Context, android.util.AttributeSet);

SQLite no concept of boolean - stored as 0 or 1

A simple but useful

SQLite does not have a separate Boolean storage class. Instead, Boolean values are stored as integers 0 (false) and 1 (true).

select * from table where deleted='false' which is wrong instead you have to write select * from table where deleted=0
