In the Android developer docs ( 
publishing/app-signing.html#releasecompile) it mentions 2 build tools-
one being Eclipse and the other Ant. It sounds like you want to look
up more information about Ant and finding or writing tools that use
it. I personally use Eclipse so unfortunately I don't have any info to
offer there.

1. Share Link - Perform action in background


I have an application that will accept URLs from the built in web
browser via the "Share page" menu item. I'm using the send intent and
it works just fine. However, I'd like to accept a URL and process it
in the background without bringing my application to the front. I
don't want the user to have to actually leave the web browser. I'll
notify the user the application has finished processing the URL with a
Toast message. I'm just not sure what type of activity should be used
for this. A good example of this behavior is the "Read Later"
instapaper application in the android market. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.


2. Use Mobile Device CPU or Server CPU


I am planning to design and write an application which displays all
possible restaurants/malls etc around the mobile device.
For this, do I send the GPS info to the server and let server do the
processing and return the list of all possible restaurants/malls or
let the mobile device itself process, find and list that.
Please advise. I don't want the mobile device to get any slower.
