Definitely not on the emulator, and not on most phones. Only a couple of
phones have Flash.

In a year's time, it may be that most Android phones have Flash. It's
even conceivable there will be a way to do Flash in the emulator, though
I'm skeptical of that.

 Android has HTML 5 and from what I've seen most of what can be done in
Flash can be done in HTML 5...is it an option for you?

1. I Need Help Setting Up My ADB On MY Mac

These are the instructions I followed:

- Download the Android SDK for Macintosh at: http://developer.android.com/sdk/
- Extract it
- Download Fastboot for OSX (If not included with SDK)
- Extract fastboot and place it in your /tools folder.
- Open up a terminal window
- type: pico .bash_profile (this will create a .bash_profile)
- type the following in the new screen: export PATH=$
- Hit CNTRL + X
- Hit Y (for yes to save)
- It will return you to the terminal screentype: exit
- Restart terminal.

Now when i go into terminal i type adb and it says

-bash: adb: command not found

what did i do wrong


2. Barcode Scanning App


A few questions:

First, is it possible to use the Zxing apps/code to convert a scanned
image into useful database info.  For example, can I scan and convert
to product features (ie. name, size, price etc).  Is the data freely
available from the internet for my application (commercial)?

Second and coupled with the above, how do I go about reading the code,
convert to searchable data, perform the internet search (on which
internet database) and retieve the data to my application?

Third, is it better for my application to store data, in the form of a
database, on the phone or in a user account on a web site somewhere?
If the data is simply pure numeric data, I would think this could be
easily stored on the SD card.  I want the user using my app to be able
to retrieve the data at a future point in time without having to worry
about connectivity.  Is the SQLite object/class easy enough to work

Lots of questions - thanks for any response !
