Android tracing and profiling

The emulator and API provides a couple of ways of tracing and
profiling your applications:
1. the android.os.Debug provides some methods like:
startMethodTracing(), startNativeTracing()
2. the emulator could be run with "-trace" option in order to later
accept the start tracing command (F9)

The problem is nativeTracing (started by F9 or startNativeTracing()
method) generates some files I don't know how to use:

Does anyone know how can I view the contents of these files ?(they are
binaries, not ascii)

 The tools to process and view these files are not shipped with the current
SDK. So , the native tracing isn't supported in the SDK yet.  You can only
use the method tracing for now.

2. Updating SQLite from a webserver

Hi! I am starting to work with Android and SQLite and I have some
doubts regarding the database update. I have a SQLite database in my
application with a supermarket catalog. As the catalog doesn't change
a lot, I would like to update it from a webserver that I own. The
problem is that I am not really sure of how to do it with the maximum

I don't want to download the whole database because it would be too
big, I've thought of placing an xml file in the server with the
registers that have changed and the new values to download it and
parse it on the phone generating SQL queries to update, delete or

Another approach woul be updating the app but I think this would be
slower as it would download the whole database.

Any ideas?
