 Hi, Kumar.

See: ;a=blob;f=location/java/com/android/internal/location/

The comment there says: "Service to communicate to the Google Location
Server (GLS) via MASF server"

and according to a quick web search, MASF stands for "Mobile
Application Sensing Framework".

2. help on singleinstance launchmode


What is launch mode of an activity, which is launched from an activity
with launch mode as "singleinstance". I tried the following code.

My application has two activities i.e. A & B. Activity A has
"singleinstance" launchmode set and activity B has "standard" launch
mode set. Android manifest file is as follows:

<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/
app_name" >
        <activity android:name=".activity_lifecycle"
            <intent-filter> <action
android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        <activity android:name=".another"
android:launchMode="standard" ></activity>

Activity A has a button, clicking button starts Activity B using below
public void onClick(View v) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        Intent intent = new
        startActivityForResult(intent, 0);

Activity B has a button, clicking button starts Activity A using below
public void onClick(View v) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        Intent intent = new
        startActivityForResult(intent, 0);

Click button in Activity A starts B. (oncreate of B is called)
Click button in Activity B re-starts A. (because A has SINGLEINSTANCE
Click button in Activity A re-starts B. (oncreate of B is NOT CALLED)

After 3rd step, since activity B is standard, a new instance should be
created and not previous instance to be used.

Kindly suggest why when second time activity B is started, a new
instance of activity B is not created, when it is declared with
launchmode "standard".
