1. activity lifetime and lifetime of instance

hi all

I have a very basic question regarding the lifetime of an instance
when it comes to the activity lifecycle changes.

Lets assume I have an activity that owns an instance of a (custom)
view class. This view instance has an instance x of another class X
(this class stores some application business data). What happens with
this instance x if onStop / onDestroy for the activity are called?
Will the instance be garbage collected and in turn will the
constructor for this instance be called once again when onRestart is
Or will the instance completely remain in memory?

The Snake and LunarLander example store all the application's logical
data directly in the view classes and thus they can simply but the
basic values (integers etc) in a bundle. I've not seen an example
where you have a complexer class with data which you want to
save/recover and how one would do that respectively what you need to
do so that an instance of this complexer class is setup properly (so
that you dont get NullPointerException and all that {*filter*} stuff ;-)).

looking forward to your answers and thanks for the patience with yet
another android newbie ;-)



2. Android API-8 UI Problem misplaced views

I developed and application for Android that must be compatible with
API 4 -->8
I worked on API 4 as my main development target and was testing on 7
also but now when I tested the app on API-8 many UI Views specially
text views are misplaced.

In my application there is a a FrameLayout that holds an image button
and 2 text views, when testing on API-8 the text is misplaced to down
although it's centered vertical and horizontal

part of xml code:

<FrameLayout android:id="@+id/FrameLayout02"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal" android:textStyle="bold"
android:textColor="#ffffff" android:layout_marginTop="5dip"
android:layout_marginLeft="-10dip" android:id="@+id/alpine_gliderText"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:src="@drawable/
gripbutton_selector" android:background="@null" android:id="@+id/
android:layout_width="100dp" android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_marginTop="15dp" android:id="@+id/alpine_logo_glider"></
