If you are using the command-line tools, and you created your project 
via the script, all you need to do is run ant from 
the project's base directory, and it will compile your project into an 
APK file in your bin/ directory.

 You can find an APK file in your project's bin folder, or you can right click 
on your project and hit "Android Tools -> Export Application Package".

1. Is MapController's zoomToSpan() execution deferred?

My application has a MapView which shows a collection of items in a
satellite view.  I use the MapController's zoomToSpan() method to
initialize the zoom level of MapView.  I later discovered that the
MapView was showing a blank white screen with grey X's (zoom'd too
far, zoom out once and everything looks as expected) for the use case
when the collection of item's locations were very close to each
other.  So, I modified the code from this:

mapController.zoomToSpan(latitudeDelta, longitudeDelta);

to this:

mapController.zoomToSpan(latitudeDelta, longitudeDelta);

if (mapView.getZoomLevel() > mapView.getMaxZoomLevel()) {

but, I still got the same result.  I added some debug before and after
the zoomToSpan() to retrieve the zoom level from MapView and noticed
that the zoom level did not change.  I'm guessing somehow that the
work is queued up??

I don't know if this information is important or not to this problem,
but I'll also mention that the MapView is created from a MapActivity
which is hosted in the tab host of a TabActivity that contains three
tabs, one of which is the map.  I searched this forum and elsewhere
and haven't seen anyone encounter such a problem before.  I'm hoping
someone can point me in the right direction.


2. Goodbye friends and thanks for all the help.

After yesterdays little farce,

and the total lack of care factor re: Google and developers in
countries unable to set up merchant accounts...

I've decided to shelve all my consumer Android projects and go back to
other platforms. Unfortunately, not all apps are suitable for all
revenue models. :(

and beer still needs real money.

When things change I will be back, as I still believe Android has a
fantastic potential that is only just beginning to be realised.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for the help and the
general good feeling that exists in this forum.

Best Regards,
