 While I can't tell when the Cupcake SDK will be publicly available, I'm very
surprised by
your statement that "debugging and make are very slow on ubuntu".

What is exactly your setup, and what kind of slowness do you experience ?

When is SDK based on cupcake getting released

 I have core 2 duo processor at 2.8GHz and 2GB RAM. Ubuntu is running
in VM Player under windows XP. In ubuntu DDMS is needed to be run
manually and attached for debugging. This attach takes time. Step and
step into using F5 and F6 keys takes longer.
In windows SDK debugging is integrated in ADT plugin and no need to
start DDMS manually. Step and step into are very quick to respond.
Build is also very quick in windows SDK.

However I am not sure whether the sluggishness is due to running
ubuntu inside VM player.

Why is that ? The Eclipse plugin should work just fine under Ubuntu.



It certainly is. And what amount of RAM/disk space did you allocate to your
virtual machine.
A reasonable explanation might be that there isn't enough RAM for the VM to
run everything
appropriately.

 Hi David

I also have a similar problem and using a pure ubuntu laptop (no vmplayer),
but attaching via DDMS taking much time (.. i mean "...the launching
activity step), is there any tweak for this? btw am working on cupcake
branch.

Thanks

 Hi David,

I have installed the ADT plugin in eclipse europa on ubuntu. I am
working on open source version cupcake. Eclipse is now asking to
configure the android.jar file path. But, I couldn't find this file in
compiled version cupcake. Please provide the path details and
instructions if any required to build android.jar using cupcake source
code.

BR,
Shaddu

 This question is forwarded to Android-Platform discussion forum as the
question is more relevant to that forum.

1. Are 3rd party app stores a good idea for free apps?

After publishing a free app to Android Market I have received numerous
solicitations from 3rd party app stores to publish my app such as
handster.com and mobango.com. To date, I have not pursued that and my
app is only available on Android Market.

I would love to hear some developer opinions about this: Is it better
to stick to Android Market only, or does it make sense to publish your
free apps in as many stores as you can? What do you think are the pros
and cons to each approach?

2. Another back button question... soft keyboard related

My app contains a page with a form, a long list of EditTexts.

If you're entering text and click the back button, the soft keyboard
is hidden. However different android versions behave in different
ways. My 2.2 device hides the keyboard, and that's it. My 1.5 device
hides the keyboard, and the 'back' onKeyDown/Up event is still
activated.

This is very tricky... for the 1.5 device I need to know if the
keyboard is being displayed when the back button is pressed, so that I
can capture the back event and stop it continuing (all I want is for
the keyboard to hide). But I've search all over this forum and there
doesn't appear to be a sure way of doing this.

Any suggestions?
