Can I have a scrolling element inside another?

I think I already have the answer, but I just want to make sure if
mine is correct: 'NO'.
As far as I understood, when I put a scrolling element inside another,
the child scrolling element can't be scrolled.
I don't know why, and I think this should be reported as a bug of
Android if this is not some kind of concept or something, so I've been
trying to find a document which describes this, but I failed.

I've seen some responses from several people about this issue and they
all said that I can't have this kind of UI.
What I'm wondering is, is there any 'official' document about this? or
at least is there any bug report/comment from Google that this is not
possible with the current Android?

When I tried to build a screen with a EditText inside of a ScrollView
where the EditText extends as I type more(sure it has its limit, so
once it becomes longer than its limit, it will have a scrollbar), I
can't scroll the text inside of EditText and it really makes me

If there's anyone who can answer this question with any 'official'
reference, that will be greatly appreciated.
Or at least if anyone from Google gives me a response on this matter,
that would be awesome. =D
(My boss wants me to find a legit excuse for this matter, that's why I
want that =(. )

Thank you!

2. Run a Service without an Activity


I put the question in another thread and got this from Dianne :

You can create a Service without an Activity, that's one of the points
of a
Service, but you still need to be running in a process created by the
activity manager (from an .apk with a manifest etc).

It might help if you describe what you are actually trying to do, what
context this is coming from (you are building your own platform,
something to upload to market, etc).

I am developing a testagent which I can communicate with over TCP/IP
from an external test program.

This agent lets me inject keypresses etc.(got the ide from Monkey).
But I also want to be able to access the Android Java API but some of
it need an instance of a Context.

So my question is how can this be achieved? Can I run this as a
Service, I dont want it to be visible to the user. And if I run it as
a Service would ! have permission to inject keypresses between

I am building my own platform and need this for test purposes, nothing
that is going to be on the Android Market.
