I'm trying to get IntentFilter informations from ActivityInfo object.
But I haven't succeeded it.

I found below article. The article is written at last year.

Is this not supported yet?

 There is a very recent thread right here where this is being
discussed. The last post was a few days ago.

I hope my mail didn't sound angry. I'm just unhappy about too many
threads in this group all saying the same thing - it makes it much
harder to find information.

However, if you want to voice your opinion and want to tell the
Android developers that GET_INTENT_FILTERS is important to you, go to
issue 3217 and star it. Here: 

(I would also recommend NOT adding a comment - it's become a very
annoying habit of users to add hollow comments to issues with "Yes, I
agree" sort of messages. That's not helpful. But just clicking on the
star will increase the star count and make the issue more important.)

If you really care about having this feature, you'll get it to happen much
faster by just contributing a patch.  Compared to the other stuff we have to
do, this one is a very low priority, and it something that would be quite
easy for someone to contribute.

 Dianne, you're absolutely right. it'd be time much better spent if you
guys worked on stuff that common townfolk can't do.

I think I'll look into it (assuming I hear back on android-source
about the patch I'm currently trying to commit).

My question though:

Who can tell me which function is supposed to behave how? I suppose
you have a very clear idea on how things are expected to work (the
documentation is pretty vague about which function actually takes
GET_INTENT_FILTERS). Assuming I call PackageManager's
queryIntentActivites() with GET_INTENT_FILTERS, the ResolveInfos will
contain an intent filter if applicable? What else is expected to honor
the flag?

1. Click handling from multiple buttons on a screen

The following code is from 
and shows how to handle a click on a button (called corky, I think)
If I had several (say 10) buttons on a form, each launching a
different subscreen, would I have to find and repeat the
setOnClickListener statement for each button, then put a switch
statement in the onClick subroutine, or is there a better way to do
it? (I'd rather not resort to naming my buttons Button1, Button2 etc
and using a loop)

public class ExampleActivity extends Activity implements
OnClickListener {
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedValues) {
        Button button = (Button)findViewById(R.id.corky);

    // Implement the OnClickListener callback
    public void onClick(View v) {
      // do something when the button is clicked

2. Some Issues related to signing APK with multiple certificates


I have three questions related to signing some APK.

1) Is there any problem if an APK file has two or more valid
    (I know jar-signer support multiple signatures in one apk file.)

2) Is there any problem if an APK file with 'android.uid.system' has
two or more valid signatures?

    Upgrading APK seemed to be working fine without any problems when
I tested it.

    Moreover, It worked well although only one signature within cert-
chain had been validated by PackageManager.
    And I confirmed the process ID assigned with 'system' properly in

    But is there any possibility that side-effect may occur?
