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?

2. Where to correctly place xml containing data?

Greetings humane, I come in peace.

I have the following XML file which serves as database for my

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <category id="0" text="Length" base="metre">
                <unit name="metre" ratio="1" />
                <unit name="mile" ratio="0.0006213711922373339" />
        <category id="1" text="Area">
        <category id="2" text="Volume">

I have placed this xml file under the src folder in my com package
where my MainActivity resides.
The compiler  however is giving me this following error:

ERROR Invalid start tag units   units.xml       /univerter/src/com/shinyu/
univerter       line 2  Android AAPT Problem

My xml is not placed in the right place, i believe. Where can i
correctly put it?

Android 1.5, Java, Eclipse.
