 What is the lifetime of an app's global android.content.Context
object? Does it last until the last component of the app is terminated
by the Android runtime?

Lifetime of an app's Context object

 I whould definitely expect that. Anyway you need a reference to the
Context object if you like access it. As long as that reference exists
the context exist.

1. setselection() doesn't have visual effect

I have create a listview . When listview is created I used
setSelection(0) to set it to first listitem.

But there is no visual effect, the selected  listitem is not changed
to listed color.

In my application, I want to high light the first listItem by default.
Does anyone know how to do that?

Thanks!

2. Problem debugging Android Bootup Service

Android Experts,

    I have a simple Android Service, which should start on device
bootup. However, I cannot debug this using Eclipse on Windows.

The error I get from Logcat is

10-01 21:06:30.788: DEBUG/AndroidRuntime(487): >>>>>>>>>>>>>>
AndroidRuntime START <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
10-01 21:06:30.788: DEBUG/AndroidRuntime(487): CheckJNI is ON

10-01 21:06:32.038: INFO/AndroidRuntime(487): NOTE: attach of thread

My manifest looks like

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android=" http://www.***.com/ ;
      package="com.preciseinc.DroidLocator"
      android:versionCode="1"
      android:versionName="1.0">
        <uses-permission
android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
        <uses-permission
android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
        <uses-permission
android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
        <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" />

    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/
app_name" android:debuggable="true">
        <service android:name=".DroidService">
                <intent-filter>
                        <action 
android:name="com.preciseinc.DroidLocator.DroidService" />
                </intent-filter>
        </service>
        <receiver android:name=".ServiceAutoStarter">
                <intent-filter>
                <action
android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED"/>
                </intent-filter>
        </receiver>
        </application>
</manifest>

I have a breakpoint in my ServiceAutoStarter code (below), which is
never hit.

public class ServiceAutoStarter extends BroadcastReceiver {

        @Override
        public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
                Intent serviceIntent = new Intent();
                serviceIntent.setComponent(new
ComponentName("com.preciseinc.DroidLocator",
                                "com.preciseinc.DroidLocator.DroidService"));
                context.startService(serviceIntent);
        }

}

Appreciate any and all Help.

Regards,

Raj.
