Good site for standard cookbook style examples - date pickers, etc.?

 Right now I'm trying to find out what the most commonly used Android
date picker is. It seems to me that it's probably cumbersome to always
use the DatePicker proper. Just because of the size of it and the fact
that many people for a given date field would want to enter data
manually. So I'm thinking someone out there must have come up with a
pattern where you click on a TextEdit field and it brings up a modal
Activity with a DatePicker, after which it returns that value to the
previous Window. Anyone know of such a thing? Or better yet a site
where noobs such as myself can see examples in cookbook fashion and
work the rest out ourselves.

1. Problem loading C++ library in Android

Hello All,

I am trying to call an API in a C++ library and Android does
not load it. The error is --

DEBUG/dalvikvm(1185): LOADING path /system/lib/ 0x4001f6e8
INFO/dalvikvm(1185): Unable to dlopen(/system/lib/ Cannot
find library

I have used arm-2008q1/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc,
arm-2008q1/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++ for compilation.

How I tried to do it, is explained below --

I have gone through the URL
have been able to run the program successfully.

After this I have made some changes in the source code.
1) I have changed signature of function add() in class NativeAdd. It is now
'public static native long add(int a, int b)'.
2) I have changed function Java_org_apache_NativeAdd_add() in file
org_apache_NativeAdd.c. It now looks like --

#include "org_apache_NativeAdd.h"

JNIEXPORT jlong JNICALL Java_org_apache_NativeAdd_add
  (JNIEnv *env, jclass c, jint a, jint b)
    long aa;
    aa = ret_mul(a, b);
//    aa = ret_mul_cpp(a, b);
    return aa;

The function ret_mul() is written in another file called NativeC.c. Content
of file is --
#include <stdio.h>
int ret_mul(int a, int b)
    return (a * b);

Now I compile these files and create libraries --

arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc -I /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_04/include -I
/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_04/include/linux -fpic -c org_apache_NativeAdd.c
arm-none-linux-gnueabi-ld -T armelf_linux_eabi.xsc -shared -o org_apache_NativeAdd.o

arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc -fpic -c NativeC.c
arm-none-linux-gnueabi-ld -T armelf_linux_eabi.xsc -shared -o

The file armelf_linux_eabi.xsc is modified as per the suggestion on the URL

I pushed the library to android environment --
adb push /system/lib
adb push /system/lib

I have created an android project CallNative1 and in file, I
am loading libraries as below --

When I run the project CallNative1, it prints the result as multiplication
of two integers.

Now I write the same ret_mul() function in NativeCpp.cpp. Content of
NativeCpp.cpp is --

#include <iostream>
int ret_mul_cpp(int a, int b)
    return (a * b);

Compiled it --

arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++ -fpic -c NativeCpp.cpp
arm-none-linux-gnueabi-ld -T armelf_linux_eabi.xsc -shared -o NativeCpp.o

Pushed the library --

adb push /system/lib

Now loading libraries as below --


When I run CallNative1 again I can see below errors in logcat.

DEBUG/dalvikvm(1185): LOADING path /system/lib/ 0x4001f6e8
INFO/dalvikvm(1185): Unable to dlopen(/system/lib/ Cannot

2. How would you like your app marketed?

Hey all,
I'm working on a story about Android app marketing for Silicon Alley
Insider. Yesterday at Google I/O, the Android lead alluded to an Android App
store. My question -- how would you like the store to operate? Is there a
better way to get apps in the hands of the consumers? And what, if any, help
do you think Google can provide in accomplishing this?
