If you have pushed the songs to the root of your sdcard then just use
setDataSourece("/sdcard/mySongName.mp3"), make sure you have set the path to
your image in Eclipse (if you are using Eclipse), make sure you are using
the correct run configuration a simple test would be from shell run adb
shell ls /sdcard (or use ddms file browser) then you can see if you have
successfully "installed" your image file.

The important thing to remember is that mp3's location on your pc is
irrelevant and that the phone plays songs from the "sdcard".

1. AndroidManifest.xml reg.

Hi All,

I was playing around with the Hello Android program and got the
following questions regarding the AndroidManifest.xml file:

1. An application can have multiple "Activity"-ies, likewise is it
possible to declare multiple applications in a single manifest file?
If yes how to shift focus between the declared applications?

2. Modified the HelloAndroid manifest file as shown below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon2"

MyTestApp.java is located in the src/com/android/hello directory.

package com.android.hello;

class MyTestApp
        public static void main(String args[])
                System.out.println("MyTestApp:main() called");

The project built fine but generated the following messages which I
could not understand:

[2008-12-30 13:16:38 - HelloAndroid] The Manifest defines no activity!
[2008-12-30 13:16:38 - HelloAndroid] The launch will only sync the
application package on the device!
[2008-12-30 13:16:38 - HelloAndroid] Only Syncing Application Package

a. Is it possible to have an application without any associated
activity? Can such an application have intents (and intent filters) to

b. Please explain what the message "The launch will only sync the
application package on the device!" mean.

Thanks in advance. And thanks for patiently reading this far...
