Android Studio Error - java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError ... couldn't find ""


While trying to use the SmartStore feature of the Salesforce MobileSDK on Android Native, I encountered the following error while trying to debug the app.

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError ... couldn't find ""


It appears the issue is with Gradle not supporting native libraries.
The workaround is to create a zip archive of the armeabi/, rename it to .jar in your libs/ and include it as a gradle dependency.

How to change the Date Format of an inline DatePicker in jQuery Editable DataTables

I've been working on a .Net MVC project that uses an older version of jQuery Datatables. The work involved upgrading a datatable to be editable. Using this CodeProject article I successfully upgraded the DataTable with DataTables Editable.

DataTables editable allows for non-standard inline input types, one of which is a datepicker, described here, which uses jeditable-datepicker. One problem I faced was setting the format of the datepicker to EU format dd/mm/yy rather than the default US format mm/dd/yy.

After exhausting lots of methods of conversion both client side and server side, I finally stumbled upon the github page for jeditable-datpicker which lists format as one of the usage options. A simple option yes, but lack of detailed documentation for DataTables Editable caused me to go searching and experimenting for longer than I should have needed to. Hopefully this post will save someone else that time :-)

For posterity, the code below shows how to set the format option of a datepicker in an editable datatable:

"aoColumns": [
{  type:   'datepicker',
    sSuccessResponse: "IGNORE",
    datepicker: {
        dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yy'
