 Is this possible?  Can I import an android layout xml file from a
remote server, and use it within the application (without writing my
own parser)?  If not, is there an easy way to parse out a remote xml
file and create a layout on the fly?




Importing a layout xml file from a remote server

 Currently view inflation only works on compiled XML resources.  Being
able to operate on any generic XML file is in the design, but won't be
available for 1.0.  Even if it was, I suspect the performance
difference between the two would be pretty disturbing.  Once the code
is open-source, I think a good project for someone would be to take
the current aapt code, and add an option so it can compile a single
XML file against the resources of an application (and system).  Then
your server could generate the XML file, compile it to binary, serve
that to the application, and let the app load its layout efficiently
from that.
