1. About the Account and the ContactsContract API


I'm creating my first Android application and I'm looking for a few
advices on several subjects. The context is simple: my application
connects itself to several Instant Messaging servers and it creates a
RawContact in the Contact Provider each one for the contacts found on
these servers. At this time, I got everything working, but I'm not
fully satisfied on several points:

First point: AccountManager

I successfully managed to create an simple account authenticator that
create a new account dedicated to my application. There is no real
authentication behind it, it simply create an empty Account if needed,
that's all. Everything works in an emulator v2.2, however, I can't
even bind to my "AuthenticatorService" in an emulator v2.1-update1.

Here is the error I retrieve from the logcat:

DEBUG/AccountManagerService(64): bind attempt failed for Session:
expectLaunch false, connected false, stats (0/0/0), lifetime 0.001,
addAccount, accountType ACCOUNT_UNIFIED_IM_TYPE, requiredFeatures null

Here is the part of the AndroidManifest.xml related to that

android:name="android.accounts.AccountAuthenticator" />
                <meta-data android:name="android.accounts.AccountAuthenticator"
                        android:resource="@xml/authenticator" />

And here is the content of the file named '/res/xml/

        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <account-authenticator xmlns:android="

Second point: creating a RawContact

Once my Account is created (or retrieved), I try to add a new
RawContact, but it seems to me that this process is reeeeaaaally slow,
so I'm wondering if I do it the right way and if you have any tips
that would allow my to speed it up. Here is my code:

        ContentValues lValues = new ContentValues();
        lValues.put(RawContacts.ACCOUNT_TYPE, lAccountType);
        lValues.put(RawContacts.ACCOUNT_NAME, lAccountName);
        Uri lRawContactUri =

        Uri lDataUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(lRawContactUri,

        ContentValues[] lData = new ContentValues[2];
        lData[0] = new ContentValues();
        lData[0].put(Entity.RAW_CONTACT_ID, lContact.getSystemId());
        lData[0].put(Entity.MIMETYPE, Im.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE);
        lData[0].put(Im.PROTOCOL, ProtocolUtils.toSystemProtocol(pProtocol));
        lData[0].put(Im.DATA, pHandle);

        lData[1] = new ContentValues();
        lData[1].put(Entity.RAW_CONTACT_ID, lContact.getSystemId());
        lData[1].put(Entity.MIMETYPE, StructuredName.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE);
        lData[1].put(StructuredName.DISPLAY_NAME, pDisplayName);

        mService.getContentResolver().bulkInsert(lDataUri, lData);

(Yeah, I know, and I'm really sorry for the lack of documentation...)

Third point: reading a list of RawContacts

That's the point that  I'm not really proud of, not that the process
is slow, but I'm sure there is a away to make it simpler. Here is what
I do:

1 - First, I query the ContactManager in order to retrieve the _ID of
all the RawContacts that matches my Account:
        Cursor lCursor = lResolver.query(
                new String[] {RawContacts._ID},
                RawContacts.ACCOUNT_NAME + "=? AND " + RawContacts.ACCOUNT_TYPE 
                new String[] {lAccountName, lAccountType},

2 - Then, for EACH RawContact I query the ContentManager in order to
retrieve its IM data, and an other query in order to retrieve its
Display Name:

        Cursor lRawCursor = lResolver.query(
                new String[] {Im.PROTOCOL, Im.DATA},
                Data.MIMETYPE + "=?",
                new String[] {Im.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE},

        lRawCursor = lResolver.query(
                new String[] {StructuredName.DISPLAY_NAME},
                Data.MIMETYPE + "=?",
                new String[]{StructuredName.CONTENT_ITEM_TYPE},

So here are my main problems, I'm pretty sure that there are some tips
that would allow me to do the same thing more efficiently, I just hope
someone will be here to give me them ;)


2. Suggestion for Google Navigation

This application propose to select a contact postal adress from a
list, extracted in contact list.
But, the ContactList activity propose a similare service with the
intent :

Intent intent=new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK);
startActivityForResult(intent, DATA);


Intent intent=new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
startActivityForResult(intent, DATA);

Because Google Navigation not used this intent, it's not possible to
use another provider, to select the address from Ldap, white pages,

What did you expect ?
