receiver enabled=false , problems after instantiation to set to listen

 Hello List,

in my manifest I set an custom object Dots that extends a 
BroadcastReceiver to receive a certain broadcast string.

<intent-filter >
<action android:name="org.dadata.demo.receiverTest" />

I dont want Android to instantiate the object for me hence the enable=false.

In the Activity a new Dots is created

Dots dots = new Dots()

How do i now make the Dots start listening to the broadcasting. I tried 
this, but it doesnt work and it also feels much to complicated..

ComponentName cName = new 
PackageManager pm = this.getPackageManager();
pm.setComponentEnabledSetting(cName , 

Is there a workable easy way to do this?

Thank you,

Thank you for the clear answer.

And yes it should have been

 One more question. In my Activity.onDraw method I have this:

Dots dotModel = new Dots();

IntentFilter iFilter = new IntentFilter();
this.registerReceiver(dotModel, iFilter);

Then later in a click handler I wrote this:

Intent intent = new Intent();

Is there some way to externalise the now hardcoded string:
"org.dadata.demo.ON_UPDATE" so i can access it from anywhere and 
reducing the risk of typed errors?

1. HTTP module missing

We are planning to use the Android for one of our device.

Is there any HTP layer implementation in Android SDK V 1.1?
While going through the code  I am not able to find any "HTTP" layer
implementation for communication.
Here in website , in Package index it is giving the Interfaces and
classes of HTTP layer.
But I am not able to find any of these interfaces in the SDK V 1.1
provided for download in the "SDK" secion.
Please share your idea in this and help me to  solve this .

Thank you very much in advance,
