Finger gestures with current MBP

  if you don't have a current MBP you can just move along to the next
message - nothing to see here.

  Now that we have the cupcake preview an old issue comes back. I can test
finger gestures with all computers, but my main-machine: a current model
MacBook Pro.

  Did anybody find out how to make the emulator detect finger gestures, e.g.
flings? I can see that onTouchEvent is called, but e.g. onFling() isn't.

  I double-tap my track pad, keep the finger on the pad and move it along.
Is there another technique?

First thanks for your quick reply. I have well found the code you told me about 

I have one more question 'cos i as i have said before i ma programming a 
service that i want to start when Android boot.

My core class extends Service not  BroadcastReceiver. So may i extend more than 
one time. I mean to extends  Service and BroadcastReceiver. for the same class 

Maybe i need to add a public class OnBootReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver 
inside my service project ? But if so how to link this second class with the 
service one ?

You'll see this covered as part of:

Sample code implementing BroadcastReceivers for BOOT_COMPLETED can be
found at:

(scroll down, download the "Source Code" from the link, and look for
SysEvents/OnBoot and SysServices/Alarm projects)

2. User login from mobile app


I am planning to write a android application that logs into a remote user
database. Once logged in the user can perform multiple tasks. I need some
guidance on the technologies I need to read up to achieve it. I read up
OpenLDAP, and Unbound API's for LDAP. Soon I will prototype the LDAP way.

I was thinking of providing the OpenID way of login. So anyone with a openID
login should be able to use my services. Any guidance there ?

One last approach I had was using a MySQL database.

Its a simple task. Multiple applications I use today on my Nokia phone do
user login. So I know its possible. I just need some guidance on where to
start looking/reading.

Thanks in advance
