 Does it need to be in the data field? Normally you'd use
Intent.putExtra() for this.

 There was a big reworking late in 1.0 of the result stuff that caused a lot
of things that used to be returning things as raw strings to put them in the
action field.  It is generally not something I would recommend.  And what
you do with results is very very different than what you do with activity
intents and such, because an activity intent is something you are publishing
to the system, which it does intent filter matching on, etc.

I would recommend putting things like integers in to the extra data.  I
would certainly not recommend using the data field if you don't actually
have a reasonable scheme prefix that is part of your data.

application.Pl. give some hits on what to watch out for..

We tried to compile the application with gmaps libarary as class path
instead of bootpath and put the minsdk as 3 and remove the
<uses-library android:name="com.google.android.maps" /> from manifest.

The application compiles and installs fine on target 2 avd, however
on start of the application it says super class of the map app not
found which is MapActivity.
