 Hi all:

I must change en_US Locale into zh_CH dynamically(Like user choose
it). I writed a demo where the code is following:

public void onClick(View v){
     Resources resource=super.getResources();
     Configuration cf=resource.getConfiguration();
     DisplayMetrics dm =resource.getDisplayMetrics();
     resource.updateConfiguration(cf, dm);


}//the end of onClick block

The code works fine.But I think this is very heavy to android
developer so I have to change every activity . Is there anyone know
the quicky way to change language setting?Please tell me the detail
steps if you know. Thanks!

TIP: My enviroment: android-sdk-windows-1.0_r2+JDK 6

 Try saving the locale some way, make your own implementation of
Application and change the locale in Application. Then when the users
wants a new locale, restart the activity/task.

I am writing an application that has a service that runs a background

using the NotificationManager.  The service needs to be running when
the phone is first booted and the user does not need to start an
activity to start the service.

What is the standard way to launch application service without user
