This has nothing to do with Android.

Your friend, most likely, is not publicizing his or her location
anywhere. After all, many people consider that a bit of a privacy issue.

If your friend starts using Fire Eagle or a similar service, you can
then write a program to obtain that location information:

1. AAPT usage different between 1.1 and 1.5

Hello there,


I used an build.xml file for building projects with ant with 1.1 sdk.
When wanted to switch to 1.5_1 or 1.5_3 SDK, the aapt located now
under platforms\android-1.5\tools is not working with the build.xml.

The target for aapt is:

<exec executable="${aapt}" failonerror="true">
            <arg value="package" />
            <arg value="-f" />
            <arg value="-M" />
            <arg value="AndroidManifest.xml" />
            <arg value="-S" />
            <arg value="${resource-dir}" />
            <arg value="-A" />
            <arg value="${asset-dir}" />
            <arg value="-I" />
            <arg value="${android-jar}" />
            <arg value="-F" />
            <arg value="${resources-package}" />
        </exec>

This one worked and still works perfectly with the aapt under 1.1 sdk,
but not with the aapt under 1.5 sdk.
The error message i receive is,

[exec] ERROR: failed opening/creating 'res/raw/whatever.mp3' as Zip
file

I do have an mp3 file in the res\raw folder as instructed by the docs,
and the same project structure builds fine under eclipse.
Unfortunately, with ant it doesn't.

Also noticed that, even if another aaps file is in the platform
\android1.1\tools directory in 1.5 sdk, that file is different from
the one included in \tools under 1.1 sdk, and it's giving the same
error message.

Can someone help me out with this?

Thank you in advance

2. What is CONTENT_STREQUENT_URI used for ?

I'm looking at CONTENT_STREQUENT_URI, desribed as 'only starred
contacts and the most frequently contacted contacts'.

When we show a contact group picker, we could include this as a sort
of meta-group. It seems like a very useful thing.

But I'd like our picking to be familiar to the user, so I have gone
looking for other apps using this on the emulator, so I know what to
call it. I can't find any.

Does anyone know where it is used, or planned to be used ?

Thanks,

Richard
