 Thanks for the insight, Pavel.  I was looking to duplicate look and
feel of the Android home page icons not just a bunch of icon pixels.

The folks at 

have some tools, some free icons and considerable expertise in this

Cheers, Scott

 We've created our "Android" icons using Inkscape. 

Have a look at some icons here: 
for OI Flashlight, OI Shopping list, OI News Reader, and OI Notepad.
(you have to scroll down a bit to see the new SDK 1.0 look icons).

 You can find the .svg versions of the OI icons here: #svn/images/icons_sdk1

Note that we have not specified the license yet, and were thinking of
some Creative Commons license.
Any advice or suggestion in this direction would be welcome.

1. Question about layouts and the emulator

Hello, i'm new to Android development, switching over from iPhone Dev.
I'm also new to Java, but it's a lot like C, so i'm picking it up

My questions is twofold.
1) from what I've read, if you want to have AbsoluteLayouts, You need
two layout files, but i can't find any information about how to switch
layout files mid-program.
2) i don't have an android yet, and won't until the 1st of the year,
so i'm making due with the emulator.  but i can't seem to figure out
how to switch it's orientation.

Thanks for the time.

2. X509 parsing...

trying to do simple X509 certificate parsing (with a known good

        try {
                String abc = "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----\n" +
+YsyevB8YN2hBnog7gtQ6PB+sVF6o/1UdU\n" +
// lines deleted for brevity
                "rchFUEChHZ5G7AAk02K7/iyqITc/IPNHHpilTg/NB6QhF9s=\n" +
                "-----END CERTIFICATE-----";

                int headerIndex = abc.indexOf(certHeader);
                if (headerIndex == -1)
                    throw new CertificateParsingException("cannot find BEGIN
                int startIndex = headerIndex + certHeader.length();

                int endIndex = abc.indexOf(certFooter);
                if (endIndex == -1)
                    throw new CertificateParsingException("cannot find END

                String cert = abc.substring(startIndex, endIndex);
                byte[] certBytes = cert.getBytes();

                InputStream in = new Base64InputStream(new

                CertificateFactory certFact = CertificateFactory.getInstance
                Certificate certGen = certFact.generateCertificate(in);
                X509Certificate x509 = (X509Certificate) certGen;
        catch (Exception e) {
                Log.e("testapp", "exception: " + e.getMessage());

when it gets to generateCertificate - it throws an exception --
    12-10 18:24:00.297: ERROR/testapp(1471): exception: ASN.1 sequence
identifier is expected at [0], but encountered: 86

I verified my Base64InputStream class is producing the correct output,
and I know that the certificate is good.  Is there something I need to
setup or something special I need to do to get this to work?
