 Hi everyone

if you just have a look into the new locales that are added to the new
SDK 1.6, you will notice that among these locales is Arabic

 http://developer.android.com/sdk/android-1.6.html 

but unfortunately, when I tried to run the emulator,I didn't find any
locale supported Arabic.

Could you please give more clarifications about this issue ??

 Disappointed, I was so happy to see Arabic listed in the docs. Any
suggestion on how to get that done? or at least add Arabic fonts to be
able to read Arabic across multiple apps?

ANDROID SDK 1.6 DOES NOT SUPPORT ARABIC LOCALE

 You are right. Arabic letters are all rendered as uniform rectangles,
which is even worse than the slightly-comical way in which the iPhone
renders Arabic.

1. Does HttpsURLConnection has a bug in the way it tests connections for reuse?

Hello developers,

I have a very interesting situation.
My application have to check any time at start-up the update- if the
new version of itself exists.
In case it exists , it downloads it from an https://... web address,
and initiates an install action.
But if the user cancels the install, next time at the start-up the
application checks again for the update, and so on.

If i use HttpsURLConnection class (http secure):

HttpsURLConnection urlConnection =
(HttpsURLConnection)url.openConnection();

urlConnection.setHostnameVerifier( DO_NOT_VERIFY);
urlConnection.setRequestMethod("GET");
urlConnection.setDoOutput(true);
urlConnection.setDoInput(true);
urlConnection.connect();


I have a strange bug, it is working good only every first and third
time,namely:
1. if i open the application and it founds that update exists. It
downloads new version and installs, but i choose cancel install.

2. if i open the app second time, i get the following error in this
line:

InputStream inputStream = urlConnection.getInputStream();
//EXCEPTION java.io.IOException: Read error: I/O error during system
call, Connection reset by peer
// java.io.IOException: Read error: I/O error during system call,
Connection reset by peer
//     at
org.apache.harmony.xnet.provider.jsse.OpenSSLSocketImpl.nativeread(Native
Method)
//     at
org.apache.harmony.xnet.provider.jsse.OpenSSLSocketImpl.access
$200( OpenSSLSocketImpl. java:55)
//    at org.apache.harmony.xnet.provider.jsse.OpenSSLSocketImpl
$SSLInputStream.read( OpenSSLSocketImpl.java:514)
// ..................

and the file created to populate it with bytes from external file - is
null, it's length is "0".

3, when i open the app the 3th time, is working well, like 1th time
4  when i open the app the 4th time, i get the same error like in 2tm
time.
and so on.

Is it a bug from the Android sdk? and there is no any solution to
solve it?

But if i use the same thing with the class  HttpURLConnection  and
download the save file, using he path http:// (not the secure one), it
is working well any time.

Does anyone know why this happens?

Thanks
Lidia

2. Workaround for Package Installer bug

Hello,

I'm trying to find a workaround for the following bug:

http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=5277

Short summary: installing an application from a .apk file and then
running it with the 'Run' button in the Package Installer will cause the
application to run subtly wrong, which can cause attempts to run the
application to create multiple copies of the activity instead of
resuming an existing instance.

This is a very serious problem for us: our application is being
distributed off-Market, so our users will see this workflow frequently.

Can anyone suggest anything we can do to avoid the problem? Even
something as crude as a way of suppressing the 'Run' button in the
Package Installer would be fine.

I've been trying to find out exactly what's going wrong, but not having
much luck. The only difference I've seen is that the Home Screen starts
my app with this:

Intent { act=android.intent.action.MAIN
cat=[android.intent.category.LAUNCHER] flg=0x10200000
cmp=<myapplication> bnds=[98,227][172,327] }

...and the Package Installer starts it with this:

Intent { act=android.intent.action.MAIN flg=0x10000000 cmp=<myapplication> }

0x200000 is FLAG_ACTIVITY_RESET_TASK_IF_NEEDED; 0x10000000 is
FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK.

Any ideas?
