 Hi all,

excuse the doutbless newbie question .. but a quick scan of the FAQ
didn't turn up a pertinent answer.

I've downloaded 2 version of the dev kit now: 

When I download and unpack, and look at RELEASE_NOTES.html in the top
level directory there's a big screaming message that goes like:

"Android 1.1 SDK, Release 1
February 2009

This is NOT the current Android SDK release.
Download the current Android SDK
The sections below provide an overview of the SDK package.

For more information on this SDK release, read the Release Notes."

Is this message just incorrect and needs fixing, or are the files I'm
downloading with 1.5 in the title really just 1.1 dev kits?

yours confusedly..

1. Mapping from J2ME to Android


I am currently working on the mapping from J2ME to android. I am stuck
at a point where I need to map the concept of double buffering in J2ME
to its equivalent in Android. I know that SurfaceView would help me
achieve this. My main concern is where I need to map the
flushgraphics() method. The flushgraphics function in J2ME does the
swapping of the buffers. From what I know in Android as well we have
two buffers - back buffer and front buffer. In order to draw we first
lockCanvas() , then draw and then unlockCanvasAndPost(). I am not sure
how should I swap the buffers. Any kind of help and guidance is highly




2. Music playing causes SoundPool Notification Stream to play at half volume

It seems that a combination of SoundPool and music playing has an
unexpected and unwanted behavior:

When music is playing (on STREAM_MUSIC), even if its volume is down,
the sounds played by SoundPool (on STREAM_NOTIFICATION) are at 50% of
the volume than when no music is playing. This is the code I'm using:


SoundPool soundPool = new SoundPool(1,

// a few of those:

sound_id = soundPool.load(context,
     "sound1", "raw",

// later this:

        final AudioManager manager = (AudioManager)
        final int volume =

        manager.setStreamVolume(AudioManager.STREAM_MUSIC, volume/2,
0);, 1f, 1f, 1, 0, 1);

        new Handler().postDelayed(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
volume, 0);
        }, 1000);


If no music is currently playing, the sounds are at full volume, nice
and clear. If music is playing, the music gets attenuated correctly,
but the sound still only plays at 50% volume.

If anyone knows anything about this, or a workaround, I would really
love to know.
