OutOfMemory problem

 I really don't know why it's giving me this error...
I load an ImageView with an image of 692kb .jpg, using scroll options,
so you can scroll it around... the strange it's that when the mobile
it's connected to the VM it's less possible to happen.
So...how can I prevent this? is there anyway that I can free memory
when starting the app? can I tell the system to free memory before
loading the image? please show me the path =P....thx a lot!

 How big, in pixels, is the image?

 You say your error doesn't happen as often if you are plugged into
your computer? Is that what you mean by VM? If so, that's likely
because you're developing your code at the time and every time you run
it on the device it kills and restarts your process.. leaving little
time for memory leaks to lead to OutOfMemory errors. Just FYI.

As for your OutOfMemory errors, this can be a really tough one to
debug.. Your app is leaking memory somewhere, but its hard to say
where. The image is not necessarily the problem, it could simply be
the tipping point that finally forces your app to crash. I would
recommend reading over all the articles tagged "Optimization" over at

 I'm looking at this blog about Optimization, thanks patbenatar.
The image it's 1920x1440 pixels, hope it helps.

 1920p * 1440p * 2Bytes/p = 2764800*2 = 5529600 Bytes per image.

That's a big chunk and only a one time leak could cause your memory
issue.
Track your code and see where you possibly cache the reference to this
large Bitmap.
Note that memory used by Bitmaps (the internal array of bytes) is not
part of the DalvikVM and won't show up when you do java memory
profiling. However, this memory is part of the overall memory used by
the app's process.

1. IOException on geocoder.getFromLocationName

Hello,

I am trying to get the geo codes for an address.  I am using:

Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(GeoNoteEditor.this, Locale
                                        .getDefault());
List<Address> addressList = null;
addressList = geocoder.getFromLocationName(addressString, 1);

The problem is that I am getting an IOException sometimes when I call
getFromLocationName for the same addressString.  This does not happen
all the time.  When I get the IOException, if I repeat the
getFromLocation call, sometimes it works sometimes I get the
IOException again.

How do I prevent the IOException from happening?

Thanks,
Prasanna

2. config.properties

Hi all,

in one of the 3rd party jars ( already compiled under Android) there
is a config.properties file that
classes from the jar need to use. Smartly enough, the Android plugin
packages this properties
file at the right directoy path starting from the root directory.
However, at runtime this file is not
found ... I looked around and it seems that a while back Issue 173 was
tracking this. Any new
solutions to this issue?

Thanks
