A little question about Modular Content

 is it possible for an application to use downloaded files on the SD
card or system memory? I'd like to develop a framework application
that can use files downloaded off the web as episodic content or
expandable modules.

also if it is possible, what file types are directly downloadable onto
the phone from the browser?

 Why wouldn't that work? If you develop your application so it uses
scripts and stuff like that, then that can be loaded from SD, if you
want to update your program code (the Java stuff) then you have to
update the application. Which isn't that big a problem, because Market
now supports it, afaik.

A little question about Modular Content

by chineseome...@gmail.com » Sun, 08 Mar 2009 23:44:33 GMT

 i was just concerned about the availability of file support.  ideally
i would like a container file such as a Zip to deliver the content in
a nice deliverable package, but i had read that the phones will not
download that type of file from the browser.

i have found no documentation about what files can and can't be
delivered via browser and/or USB and whether there are distinctions
between dev phone file options and standard phone.


also versioning of the application is not so much an issue, i would
like people to be able to only download and use the modules they would
like to, not update the entire application with a bloated compilation
of all the files

thank you for your reply

1. Draw Bitmap on Overlay

Hi there,

I've been trying almost everything and been searching and reading
everywhere on the net. I just can't seem to find the correct way of
doing this.

I have a MapActivity with a MapView and I want to draw something on an
Overlay. I'm overwriting the draw-method, and I can easily draw
straight on the canvas using a paint. My problem is I want to merge
some circles and afterwards color them. Therefore I want to create a
Bitmap and then draw on that. I just don't know what to use. Should I
use a mutable Bitmap, a BitmapDrawable or am I simply going in the
wrong direction.

The reason I want to do this is because I want to draw some kind of
heatmap upon the Google Maps, and I need to merge and blend different
circles, so they appear to be just one big blob.

I hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks in advance,



2. How do I backup my application signing key?

You created a keystore file when you created your application signing
key. AFAIK, all you need to do is back up that keystore file.
