 I created one application to start application After particular time
interval. My application working fine but it does not do particular
after particular time. I mean it does not used to start automatically
after the time which i set in AlaramManager.

My coding and xml file is as below.

The following is the code of my mail class which extends Activity. I
have done following thing in it


Intent intent = new Intent(Lalu_Android.this, OneShotAlarm.class);
PendingIntent sender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(Lalu_Android.this,
0, intent, 0);

// We want the alarm to go off 30 seconds from now.
Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
calendar.add(Calendar.SECOND, 15);

// Schedule the alarm!
AlarmManager am = (AlarmManager)getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE);
am.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, calendar.getTimeInMillis(), sender);

catch(Exception e)

tv.setText("Url not called successfully");


The following is a class which extends BroadcastReceiver . Which
be invoked after particular time.

public class OneShotAlarm extends BroadcastReceiver
//Lalu_Android la=new Lalu_Android();
CallUrl ca;

//TextView tv = new TextView();
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
System.out.println("In one shot alaram");
Toast.makeText(context, "Alaram", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
ca=new CallUrl();
//Toast.makeText(context, R.string.one_shot_received,
/*Intent smsIntent = new Intent();
//la. */

The CallUrl is a another class which i want to execute its method
onCreate() when application starts by AlaramManager so i create the
object of it in the OneShotAlaram.

The following my xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="" ;
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon"
<activity android:name=".Lalu_Android"
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
<receiver android:name=".OneShotAlarm" />

 Try to move your service declaration in the manifest under application
tag. Regards.

1. Unknown URL content://contacts


When I run the following lines in my code, I get the error
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException:  Unknown URL content://contacts

String[] PEOPLE_PROJECTION = new String[] {

        Cursor cursor = managedQuery(Contacts.CONTENT_URI,
            PEOPLE_PROJECTION, null, null,
    int name = cursor.getColumnIndex(Contacts.People.NAME);

Kindly help.

2. How does "deleteRow" work in a Cursor object


Hope some experts can shed light on the workings of a Cursor object.

Lets refer to the NotesList sample project accompanying the SDK. Here  
we have a ContentProvider that returns the results of a query as a  
Cursor object. The recipient of the Query can use this Cursor object  
whichever way it wants including making a "deleteRow" call.

Now, according to the documentation, deleteRow is supposed to delete a  
row "from the underlying datastore". How does the Cursor know what  
table/row the cursor correspond to? I tried to single-step through the  
NotesList application and the delete method belonging to the  
DataProvider class, NotePadProvider is not used at all. How does the  
Cursor end up bypassing the DataProvider responsible for the Database?

Further more, the cursor can be the result of a complex "join" query  
in which case, how would anyone know which row to delete?

Any insights will be greatly appreciated.

Mark Murphy, any thoughts? :)
