transfer initiated … its going to take some time to copy the data and complete the transfer …

Thanks @sumeet the transfer was successful. I need to configure the new API address on the clients app. Under the PrefGeneral.class there are several string constants, DEFAULT_SERVICE_URL,SERVICE_URL_NEARBYSHOPS which one should i change exactly?

I havent updated the instructions … so i am providing you here new instructions …

You need to Make sure you “getMultiMarketMode” method returns false … and getServiceURL method returns your service URL …

So make any Constant like
public static final String DEFAULT_SERVICE_URL = “”;

replace with your url

then in the getServiceURL method … put your URL like this

return sharedPref.getString(TAG_SERVICE_URL, DEFAULT_SERVICE_URL);

TAG_SERVICE_URL is not defined anywhere. If i were to fine it what will i assign it and yet i have the DEFAULT_SERVICE_URL

its defined … you only have to modify DEFAULT_SERVICE_URL … everything else remains same …

or if nothing works you can also do it like
