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. Where can I find the "Android Cloud to Device Messaging" API?

So Android 2.2 is out, we've got a new SDK, and a promising new
feature "Android Cloud to Device Messaging".
But I just can't find any traces of this in the API diff.

Did anyone find an API? Or some further docs?

Thanks in advance,

2. Protect against broken intent - How ?


In my application I am going to be allowing the ability to "call" and
start other activities, just like the Android spec allows.
To this extent I use the following code :-

Intent myIntent = new Intent();
myIntent.setClassName("IntentPackage", "Fully Qualified Intent");

Now I found out quite by accident if the intent fails to be found, I
accidentally misspelled my intent, it totally crashes my application
not only that nullifies my application object as well (I have a class
that extends Application). I've tried to trap this but it still always

Can someone please advise me on how to protect my app against broken
intents (misspelled or otherwise) ?
