 How can I test if there's a ContentProvider for a Uri ?

I'm currently doing a query on it and checking for a null cursor, but
that generates an error in the system log each time, which I don't
like to do.

You should be able to use methods on PackageManager for that.

1. Service.onDestroy() invalid?

I use AlarmManager to restart my service, code is:

AlarmManager aman = (AlarmManager)getSystemService
PendingIntent pi = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(this,0, new Intent
(this,BootCompleteReceiver.class), 0);
aman.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, System.currentTimeMillis()+(1000)*5,

after 5 seconds, BootCompleteReceiver will startServcie(), but only
see onStart() not onCreate() calls. Is the way of destroying the
service wrong? Thanks.

BootCompleteReceiver is written in AndroidManifest.xml

2. ApplicationContext.java and Activity.java. Is ApplicationContext not used ?

Yes, I agree it is confusing, but it is not in the SDK so not a high
priority to go through all the effort of changing.
