1. JetPlayer

I have created a jet file, with a controller event in it, using the
JetCreator and defined a OnJetListener. And although other methods on
the listener are called, the onJetEvent method is not. Am I missing
something here?


2. Authentication Credentials

I would like to connect to a remote web service to retrieve data.
However, in doing so, I must provide this web service with credentials
to authenticate the client, (to disallow anonymous requests), before
data is returned. The only way I can think of to do this is by simply
passing along the credentials in the querystring with each request.
This method seems rather clunky, not to mention sessionless. Is there
a better technique? This web service is also entirely under my
developmental control, so I can make any necessary changes.

Also, on the side of the web service, I would like to ensure that ONLY
requests that come directly from an android handset will be accepted
(have data returned). In other words, if that same request comes in
from a browser or iFone, data will not be returned. User-agents can be
easily spoofed so I don't want to rely on that. Is this at all
possible? The only way I can think of would be to keep the parameters
of each service call a secret (is this even possible?) so that a user
can't recreate the querystring, thus throwing an error.

Looking forward to your input!
