Other Threads

1. Why atomic access to functions like CameraService::Client::takePicture()?


I seldom program multithreads. I am curious about why it needs a
Mutex::Autolock to protect access to CameraService::Client::takePicture
()? We don't have multiple camera clients, right? Is it for preventing
consecutively taking pictures?



2. When is (or isn't) instance state restored ?

I'm a bit confused by the saved instance state mechanism.

If I breakpoint in onCreate, run the app, hit the Home button, then
relaunch the app, I typically see a null Bundle passed in to

But, if I (for example) rotate the emulator, I see a non-null Bundle
in onCreate, and the app has the right state after the rotation.

What causes the null in the first example ? It looks as though the
system has thrown away the saved instance state on our behalf.
