 Hi community,

I'm happy to announce that  Aurora Device Search has been submitted to ADC2.
It has been published in MarketPlace for a while, and already get many good
feedback from the community (
 http://www.cyrket.com/package/com.aurora.android.search ). Thanks a lot to
the community!  Here's a short introduction of Aurora Device Search.

Aurora Device search is a full text device search tool on Android. Like
spotli...@mac, Aurora shows search result dynamically as typing. Searched
data scope include:

* Contacts
* Calendar Event
* Application name
* Web history
* Web bookmark
* SMS/MMS
* Audio
* Video
* Image
* SDCard files

What's more, Aurora emphasizes the intelligence of search ranking, and user
accessibility. Highlight features include not limited to:

* Intelligent search ranking based on user behavior. Most frequently used
resources will in the top list. Aurora learns user's habit so that the
longer time you use Aurora, the less letters you may type to find the target
resource.

* Quick share data to your friends. User can share contact card, calendar
event, web link, pictures, and all kinds of data to friends via
sms/mms/gmail.

* Shortcut buttons. It makes user operation much easier. i.e uninstalling an
application, user only needs to type first letters of the application name,
and press "manage" button in the screen. Much easier than going to "Setting"
-> "Manage application" -> .... -> "Uninstall".

* Convenient context menu. Most operations can be done via context menu, so
that Aurora can be your mobile entry.

and more...

Experience Aurora by downloading from MarketPlace!
Any comment, suggestion and bug report are highly appreciated. Please

 Sounds like a cool app, I'll have to go check it out.

Incidentally, this post is an excellent example of why the Market
needs bigger descriptions. I don't envy you trying to squeeze all that
into 325 bytes.

 m....you should really have a web page/site to describe it ;)

Seems like a good apk though, until the Donut universal search is out.

Cheers

 I installed and tried your apk earlier and noticed that your apk
actually takes up almost 3MB of installed space.
No choice but to remove it since my G1 is too full (<5MB).

Would be a lot better if the amount of space needed can be reduced to
1MB or less.

Cheers

That is a good start.
I found apk are getting ~1MB on average, and it is tough to fit them
on a G1 without getting in the SDcard route :(

1. Creating a JAR that contains references

Hi,

I've been trying to create (and include in a new application) a JAR
file, I've seen all the information on the web regarding how to do
this in Eclipse. All seems to go well and I can add my newly created
JAR and even debug into it from an app that I've added it to. The
problem I am having is that the R.Java file that is included in the
JAR (from my original app that I generated the JAR from) seems to
point to rubbish/incorrect data when I run the app.
I have a couple of images and text files that I need to reference from
within my JAR and I am using the usual 'R.raw.settings' etc and it
seems to pickup the correct value from the R.Java that gets included
in the JAR. I'm under the impression that these values are no longer
valid when the JAR is included in the new application and it's
returning data from some random place?

Does anyone happen to know how I can create a JAR file that I can
include resources in and how to reference them etc? I'm sure this must
actually be possible as Android.jar contains a number of images that
must be used internally?

Thanks,
Steve

2. Specifying Android project dependencies (in Eclipse)

Hi all!

This was originally posted as a StackOverflow question (  
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/549451 
  ), but following advice from #android I will also post the question  
here.

I have two Android projects, a 'library project' containing a custom  
layout, and an 'application project' containing an application which  
uses the layout.

Everything seems to build and execute fine, except that the visual  
layout editor throws a ClassNotFoundException (which I assume is a bug  
in the plug-in), but when I try to start to make use of the attributes  
I defined for the custom layout in the xml, the build fails. That is;  
this works:

     <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
     <se.fnord.android.layout.PredicateLayout
         xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
         android:layout_width="fill_parent"
         android:layout_height="fill_parent">
       <TextView
         android:layout_width="wrap_content"
         android:layout_height="wrap_content"
         android:text="asdfasdf"
         />
     </se.fnord.android.layout.PredicateLayout>

Whereas this does not:

     <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
     <se.fnord.android.layout.PredicateLayout
         xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
         xmlns:fnord="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/se.fnord.android 
"
         android:layout_width="fill_parent"
         android:layout_height="fill_parent">
       <TextView
         fnord:layout_horizontalSpacing="1px"
         android:layout_width="wrap_content"
         android:layout_height="wrap_content"
         android:text="asdfasdf"
         />
     </se.fnord.android.layout.PredicateLayout>

The build fails with a message from aapt:

     ERROR No resource identifier found for attribute  
'layout_horizontalSpacing' in package 'se.fnord.android'

The resource identifier does exist in the R-file and attrs.xml  
contained the library project, and if I put the layout code and  
resources directly in the application project everything works fine.  
The layout_horizontalSpacing attribute (and layout_verticalSpacing) is  
a custom attribute used in the PredicateLayout.LayoutParam class to  
specify the distance to the next widget.

So far I've tried the standard eclipse ways by specifying project  
references and build path project dependencies. I was also told to try  
the <uses-library> tag in the application manifest, which did not help.

So, what do I need to do for the references in the xml-file to work?

I don't know if it's relevant, but the 'library' manifest looks like  
this:

     <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
     <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/ 
android"
           package="se.fnord.android"
           android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0.0">
     </manifest>

The 'application' manifest like this:

     <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
     <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/ 
android"
           package="se.fnord.appname"
           android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0.0">
         <application android:icon="@drawable/icon"  
android:label="@string/app_name">
             <activity android:name=".AppName"
                       android:label="@string/app_name">
                 <intent-filter>
                     <action  
android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                     <category  
android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
                 </intent-filter>
             </activity>
         </application>
     </manifest>

'se.fnord.android.layout.PredicateLayout', btw, is a cleaned-up  
version of the layout posted at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/549451 
  .

Thanks!

// Henrik
