- not possible to associate a permission with several certificates
- not possible to create a permission unless you have some code
bundled with it in an APK file
- not possible to define a set new permissions associated with a
certificate each unless you create one APK file for each permission/

Am I wrong about any of these statements ?


Defining permission

You need an .apk, but it doesn't need code.

Yes permissions as owned by .apks (and their associated cert), so they must
go along with one.

1. Setting alarm time


I need to set an alarm clock for, say, 9AM

so I am getting a calendar instance

Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar(TimeZone.getTimeZone("UTC"));
cal.set(2010, 11, 29, 9, 0, 0);

and then I call AlarmManager.set like:

mAlarmManager.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal.getTime().getTime(),

where pi is a pending intent for a broadcast message.
I do not receive a callback at the specified time.

How do I correct this?



2. Which source files go into system_process

       Which source files go into the system_process runtime process
that gets displayed in the DDMS devices window? Is it just frameworks/
base or are there some additional components that go into it?

I want to create an eclipse project to debug the system_process
runtime process, to set break points and step through the source code.
