I am planning to write a android application that logs into a remote user
database. Once logged in the user can perform multiple tasks. I need some
guidance on the technologies I need to read up to achieve it. I read up
OpenLDAP, and Unbound API's for LDAP. Soon I will prototype the LDAP way.

I was thinking of providing the OpenID way of login. So anyone with a openID
login should be able to use my services. Any guidance there ?

One last approach I had was using a MySQL database.

Its a simple task. Multiple applications I use today on my Nokia phone do
user login. So I know its possible. I just need some guidance on where to
start looking/reading.

Thanks in advance

1. [ADB -install] How to install and application inside an emulator, if only the <avd-name> is known?

Dear group members,

I have a question related to installing an APK file with the command
adb -install:

We have created via commandline a set of AVDs and we have started a
set of devices which run in an emulator. For all of the devices we
know the corresponding <avd-name>.

The result of the command "adb services" is now something like [1].

Now we would like to install an application inside the device
belonging to <avd-name>.

But having the <avd-name> the apk-file could not be installed. For
this we need the serialnumber.

How can we find the serialnumber, if we know the <avd-name>?

Thanks for a hint.

Best Regards

2. A large number of SMS messages are being sent. Select "OK" to continue, or "Cancel" to stop sending


My application is sending around 300 messages in a go. But after
sending about 100 messages, an Alert appears each time before sending
the remaining messages. Alert says:

"Unknown application a large number of SMS messages are being sent.
Select "OK" to continue, or "Cancel" to stop sending"

If everytime I press the OK button, the messages keep on going but If
I am unable to click within some time(dont know the exact timeout), my
application stops and the SIM services are re-intiallized(means
suddenly there is a cross on the network signals and then it comes

Please help me as I am stuck at this point and the project deadline is
over my head.
