Communicating with the gtalk app?

 Hi.  Considering the code for the gtalk app is unavailable, I'm unable
to discern this information for myself, and haven't been able to find
it anywhere -- I know Google has security concerns, but I'm wondering
if there is any API at all for communicating with the google talk
application itself, such as setting available/busy or signin/out?  A
plugin for Locale that would be able to do that would be extremely
useful, and trivial for me to write, but the information seems not to
be available, as far as I can tell.  Does anyone know anything about
doing this?

 You might want to look at the libjingle library which had some hard
coded hooks to talk to the GoogleTalk servers.

Of course you would have to port the needed libraries to the Android
platform which is not a trivial task. I am not aware that there is any
porting available on Android.

1. Urgent: MapActivity - Couldn't get connection factory client (API key does not work)


We've tried this on a number of our development machines, but so far
this is not working for us.

We are consistently getting the following errors in DDMS LogCat :

'MapActivity - Couldn't get connection factory client'

and a LOT of :

'WARN/AndroidHttpConnectionFactory(167): IOException in HttpClient:
The target server failed to respond'

warnings. A few days ago this was working for us when there wasn't the
googlemaps API key requirement, although we still had these HttpClient
warning messages coming up for us.

We are using Android SDK Debug certificate in eclipse as instructed

Eclipse version is : Version: 3.3.2, Build id: M20080221-1800
JDK: jdk1.6.0_06
Latest Android SDK and Eclipse Plugin
Platform, Windows XP SP2

Would appreciate any help.
