I have been looking at the examples regarding themes and styles on the
Dev guide...
I see a lot of attributes have been used, for example :

<style name="SpecialText" parent="@style/Text">
<item name="android:textSize">18sp</item>
<item name="android:textColor">#008</item>

Now I was wondering where can I find a list with all existing
attributes ?

I'd like to change the (standard) Menu-items background, both a color
change as using an Image as the background for every item would be
Any hints, tips or code that might help are very welcome...
Thanks in advance...

1. Business multi-tier application with android client

I'm developing client-server application with android client and now
I'm working on architecture trying to find proper technologies. Spent
a lot of hours googling and testing and what I have:
1) Server: Tomcat + AXIS + WebServices. The best way on first sight,
but as far as I know SOAP isn't maintained by android developers.
Release date of kSOAP2 is 2007-03-15, may be there other libraries for
SOAP services?
2) Server: Tomcat + Struts. I can use all power of J2EE, but struts
designed mainly for web site development. Not exactly what I want.
3) Server: Tomcat + Servlets, using Google Protobuf for client server-
interaction. Unfortunately, protobuf works hell slow on android. As
far as know android use optimized version of this library inside but
google doesn't officially support it. Please correct me if I
4) Server: Tomcat + Servlets, using custom XML format for client-
server interaction. At this time best solution. Just because first 3
solution fails :( I can't use many useful J2EE features and I have to
code a lot of stuff.

Do you know any other ways? May be you can share your experience?
I'm new in android development. Hope, you will help me with your
advices :)


2. Exported apk will not install, no error message


The app runs in the emulator, the apk in the bin directory runs on my
phone. But when I export it it will not run on the phone.

There is only a message saying that installation failed, no reason

I thought my installation had gone bad so I tried to export one of my
other projects but they still worked fine.

How can I trace down this error?
