Control rotation of a 3D object using the touchscreen

 Hello all, I'm a 4th year computer engineering student and have some
experience with Android dev.

I am working on an application that has a 3D component to it which
requires me to be able to rotate it around. I was looking at the
example at the android resources site. 

This example does not talk about rotation around the z-axis. I have
already tried using Quaternion for the rotations but I don't
understand how to get rotations around the z-axis

I was wondering if anyone can help me with learning how to just be
able to rotate around an object. like the example above but also
around the z-axis. I have already spend about 24 hours searching and
trying to figure this out.

The bigger issue is that once you rotate 90 degrees around the y-axis
how can you detect that the next rotation (going vertically on the
touchscreen) should be around the z-axis.

Thank you in advance.

1. Android 1.5 on ADP radio problems related to locking SIM?


I have an ancient Tmobile SIM (SIM has a Voicestream label if I want
to date myself 8-) in an ADP. I've upgraded from android holiday code
to android 1.5 and I have radio firmware of 2_22_19_26I. If I leave
SIM card locked, the data service does not come on when system is
powered on/off. If I unlock SIM, data service comes on every time. Has
anybody else seen such a behaviour?



2. Run a Servlet web application on android i-jetty server.

I've been trying to deploy a war to run a servlet web app on i-jetty
The war worked fine on Tomcat server, but didn't on i-jetty.
I also tried to build a war from the hello sample code, and didn't
work although the ready built war worked fine.
How can I build and run a war to make it work inside android in i-
jetty server? What do I need to do? How can I compile the code?
