 I was going to post this to the group but figured I'd write up a how-
to on my website instead.  Basically, here's how you configure Eclipse
to do nice C/C++ editing and automatically build your native code for
you on-save.  It also automatically refreshes your lib directory and
consequently ADT puts it straight into your APK.


I'll post this to the NDK dev group as well.  I can't believe I didn't
set that up sooner.  It cut my native development time in half.  Let
me know if you have problems/questions with it.

It would be great to know how to debug native code.

1. 3rd party Eclipse plugins you use for Android

My deep dive into java debugging has me looking for Eclipse plugins

My dream plugin would be paired with an APK that let you compile, and

2. Could Google Sync perform merge on duplicated contacts / calendars?


I found if I use google sync on my android phone to sync SIM contacts
to gmail, it could generate duplicate on both android & gmail. Here
are steps to reproduce it:
1. Set android "Factory default" to clear all data.
2. Import contact from SIM card.
3. sign in Google account to sync to Google Contact
4. Set android "Factory default" again to clear all data.
5. Import contact from SIM card.
6. sign in Google account to sync to Google Contact

What this matters is I am developing an app that could import contacts
from social network services. This could be a useful feature if user
can import contact from facebook or something like that. But problem
comes in, each time when user upgrade android OS and re-install my
apk, then import their social network contacts, it would generate
duplicates when they sync to gmail.

So I am wondering if Google Sync on android could support merge
duplicates to ease contact management. Actually Google Calendar has
similar issue too. So I think it's Google Sync's job to implement
merge duplicates.

What do you think?
