Hello All,
    I'm just starting out here and scouting out the area so to speak. I
know that Android Applications are written in JAVA Source Code but I'm
trying to find a web page which details the JAVA that is supported by
the Android platform. What version of Java is supported and what
libraries are and are not supported. I've read somewhere that the Java
Database libraries are not supported. But I'm looking for a full list.

The reason I ask as I wonder are there issues with porting Java Source
to the android. Are there omissions which make the job non trivial?

Thanks for any pointers, advice or help.

1. Not loading Phone.apk on emulator

Hi All,

I am porting s3c6410 on emulator (only platform side not kernel). I
removed the hardware dependencies (from hardware folder). when i am
running emulator it's not able to load Phone.apk showing following :

Has anyone any idea what is the issue, why it's not loading Phone.apk,
why emulator is crashing . I am not able to debug it also using
eclipse, is there any other way of debugging which i can use.

Thanks for your time and support

2. How to specify parameters used in XML, in code instead?

I'm trying to do part of my Activity layout in code rather than XML,
but I realize not all the parameters are available in code. For

with HorizontalScrollView, there are

corresponding setter methods are not available in code,
unlike android:background that has setBackgroundResource

I'm hoping there's something similar to addRule in LayoutParams, where
I specify the parameter as the first argument, and the value as the
second argument.
