  I would like to DESIGN and then CODE a Media Player Application
where-in a list of files stored on the sd card are shown on one page.
When the user clicks on a file, it should be played on another page.

  Given a few steps, I can code an application. But what I would like
to know is how do I go about with the DESIGN part? Being a junior
programmer, I am new to the world of DESIGNING / ARCHITECTING
applications and related best practices / methodologies. Hence, need
some expert advice from you to BUILD a ROCK-SOLID Mobile Application.
This will help me think in terms of a Mobile Application Architect!

  I am sorry if my question is not android specific at the moment. If
this is not the correct mailing list, please point me to a relevant

  Any links, pointers, guides would be very helpful. Thanks.

2. Regarding AbsoluteView being deprecated in 1.5

If none of the standard layout managers let you achieve what you want in an
efficient way, you can just write your own layout manager.  This is actually
what you end up having to do anyway if you are going to have a UI that works
correctly (for any different screen size, for changes to the screen
decorations like an IME being displayed, etc), but it is actually probably a
lot easier to do this correctly by just writing your own layout manager than
using AbsoluteLayout.
