 I want to set a proxy server for my android emulator but the setting
doesn't work.

I have tried with "./emulator -http-proxy" but I
don't have access to internet

 CC-ing android-beginners (please do not write to me directly)

I believe that proxy support in the web browser was left out due to
release/timing pressure,
and this may not work properly in the current SDK. The next SDK release will

- the same browser implementation
- a re-implemented -http-proxy option that should work by transparently
rewriting HTTP requests.

Regarding the DNS issue, the emulated system uses by default the DNS servers
by the emulator at startup on your system. You can however provide your own
list of DNS
server with the -dns-server option. Please read "emulator -help-dns-server"
for more details.

on the other hand, we don't plan to restrict which sites the proxy is used
for. You should use
a intermediate proxy to do the filtering, and connect the emulator to it
through -http-proxy.

1. How I call startActivity() in BradocastReceiver


I'd like to launch one of settings app screen when I received a
certain event in idle state.
For that, I added my new intent to PhoneAppBroadcastReceiver() in
(because it seems this receiver handles the misc intents)
But if I called startActivity(), seems phone goes to panic.
ex. startActivity(new Intent(this, NetworkSetting.class));

1. How can I launch the activity inside of bradcastreceiver?

2. If the activity which I want to start is already started, how can I
check it?
I read can use NEW_TASK_LAUNCH but don't know how to use  it.
If you have a sample code, could you post it?

Thank you!
