API to test if an application has the Auto Update flag enabled?

 I'd like to get a list of my applications that have the auto update flag 
enabled.  After searching the APIs and lots of googling, i can't seem to 
find an API that would allow me to test if an Application has this set or 
not.  Does anyone know how to check for this behaviour?

This appears to be a feature of the Android Market, not the OS itself, so
there's likely no API to query this state.

1. CDMA support

Hi All,
As far as I know, current Android supports GSM/GPRS and UMTS access
technologies (3GPP) only. No support available for CDMA i.e. 3GPP2. My
question is that being a middleware platform component how does
Android has impact on a particular access technology namely, UMTS/CDMA
etc? Current Android has rich set of RIL APIs for network
registration, voice/data call etc. Do we think changes added to these
or extra specific to CDMA (??).

2. suggestion. replace onActivityResult(), Request Code and Result Codes with flexible callbacks

(This would be more appropriate for the android-framework group to talk
about changes to the platform.)

There is currently no plan for doing this kind of thing, because it is
extremely problematic to deal with the case when the activity's process is
killed and restarted between startActivityForResult() and eventually
receiving the result.

If this is something you really want, you are welcome to work on a patch you
can contribute to add the feature.  On the priority list of the people
currently working on the platform, though, it is very low because:

(1) Given the processing killing issue, an API as simple as being described
is impossible to do, so it would need to be more complicated, making its
utility unclear.

(2) Whatever "desired" API there is can just as easily be implemented by the
application, it doesn't need to be done in the framework.  There is very
little additional capabilities the framework has to do this, except possibly
the chance to change the result from an int to a string (and so being able
to make it say a class name that it dynamically instantiates when delivering
the result).
