I booted Android for "generic" product.
In the system/usr/keylayout/qwerty.kl there is no mapping for Escape Key.

As our target doesn't have touch screen, we coudnt go back to previous
screen / Main window.

Can anyone let me know how to add Escape key mapping in that file?

1. Calling media framework API from C/C++


I am new to Andriod. I have a basic doubts, please clarify it.

I have my own library file say [ file] and it will be in library layer 
and its in C/C++ code. And I need to load this library in a application say 
Browser app.

a) How browser app can load my library ? Is it dl_open function call ?

b) My library exposed a function say CreatePlayer(). If browser wants to call 
CreatePlayer() then does browser should use dl_sym() function ? Can a 
application directly talks to a library through dl_sym function call which is 
in library layer ? My librray also exposed a JNI API.

c)My libraryneeds media framework utitlity in andriod. So From C/C++ code, 
cani call JNI API of media framework function say mPlayer = new MediaPlayer() 
.. so on,

Thanks & Regards,
