ADT debugger always stops at ALL exceptions

 I'm a very experienced Eclipse user, but some behavior in the debugger
with ADT is confusing and causing a lot of pain.
Every time I'm debugging an app on a device, the debugger stops at ALL
exceptions, even if they're eventually caught. I don't have any
exception break points set up, which would be the expected cause if
this were regular Java debugging.
For example, I use a library that, for good or bad, generates some
ClassNotFoundExceptions during its initialization. These are harmless
and actually caught by the library, not even logged to LogCat. But the
ADT debugger insists on stopping every time one of them is thrown. It
makes debugging this app a real pain, because I have to Resume a bunch
of times every time the app is launched.

Is this intentional behavior of the ADT debugger? Is there a way to
turn it off?

 Which version of the ADT and SDK you use? Which version of the Android
is on your device ?

 Sorry, forgot to include the version info.

My SDK installation includes all releases from 3-11, my project
targets 7 (Android 2.1-update1). Device has 2.2.2.

 This is basic Java debugging in Eclipse.  In Java or Debug perspective:
   
   - Run->Add Java Exception Breakpoint.
   - Uncheck "Suspend on caught exceptions"
   - Click OK

You can also filter which exceptions you wish to break on here as well if 
you choose.

 Rick,
Like I said, I'm no newbie to Eclipse. I don't WANT to stop at all
breakpoints, but with or without an Exception breakpoint it's stopping
all the time. Doesn't matter if I set up an exception breakpoint with
or without checking "caught exceptions."
Debugging an Android device is behaving differently than standard Java
debugging in this fundamental way. I'm just trying to determine if its
a bug or something that can be configured, or something I'm doing
incorrectly.

 In my experience there is no difference debugging an Android application 
than any other Java application.  When I uncheck that preference, I no 
longer stop at any exception that is caught.  If it's still breaking on any 
caught exceptions after that preference has been unchecked, then I am at a 
loss, since that's not my experience.  Have you tried another machine to see 
if it's reproducible there?

 Eric,

I can reproduce the problem with uncaught exception on both: emulator
and device (Android 1.6).
However, debugger doesn't stop on caught exception.
As you, preferences don't distinguish.
Maybe you got some hidden uncaught exception.
Try to add android source ?

1. Add MapActivity to ActivityGroup

Hi

I want to add a MapActivity in an ActivtyGroup.
As only single level inheritance is supported, my class can either
extend from either MapActivity or
ActivityGroup.
As far as I know MapActivity is not a part of ActivityGroup.
I want an activity to extend MapActivty as well be a part of an
ActivityGroup.
please provide help.

Thanks

2. Input validation

Before I implement this in my app I just wanted to find out if there
are any guides to best practices regarding input validation in
android? For example setting certain fields as required or matching a
regex, e.g email validation.

Maybe I'm searching for the wrong terms but I cant find any examples
at all!
