Write / Read Date Array To File In Droid

I am writing to file in android and read from the same file using the below code.

As per now i am only able to save a string to this file.
I like to write a date array to it and also want to read back the data as array.
I know that the return type of read method will be changed, but i am not getting the idea of how to read and write the date array or any other array to the file.

How To Use Getlastmodified() For Xml File Creation - Modicfication Date Check

I am parsing xml file in my android application, but i like to modify the code, that it only parses the xml file if it is update (i will store the last successful parse date).

I found out the: urlconnection. Getlastmodified();

But not getting proper idea of how to use it, as it is returning milliseconds as long. Is it possible i can check if file is modified or not.

Access Private Resource In Donut

I saw in old posts that the oem could add internal resource in framework , so they can be able to use them with the special syntax. For example


Now it seems that the latter interface is not provided anymore in android 1. 5 as well as the donut version i'm compiling. But the former still can be used. Why? Is it gonna be supported in further versions?

As oem, we need to create applications with customizable resources, so the most convenient way as far as i know is to modify the private resource, as they can be used from xml scripts, and they wont cause trouble to third party application that should not use them. But i don't know how to check the res ids in the private resources changed or not. They have no .xml file to set their index orders like the public ones.

I saw in a post : ". Private resource ids are assigned dynamically, they basically change in each build of the system". So if i build a new framework-res.apk and i change some resource data, i don't know what is gonna happen to my previous applications? Does this mean all of the ids changed even if you don't add any new resource? Is there a way to check the compatibility of private resources between 2 builds, or to force them to be compatible  - like in public resources we can set the order in the public.xml to keep ids order the same.

Htc Desire - How To Backup A Private Application

I'm using astro to back up some not very often used apps, and games. So i can remove them for now.

I have the paid for version of winds of steel, and exzeus that i want to remove. They're listed as private, with no check box for backup.

How do i get around this, or is it a case of tough.

I can see why they wont allow backups, otherwise a paid for game could be ported to someone elses 'droid phone for free. As long as they have astro.

List Of Private / Hidden / System Apis

In this post I've read about all that stuff about private apis which are annotated with @hide. The presence of hidden apis is not as well-known as the "all apps are equal"-mantra, but i think there should be more information on it. As long as i belivied in the mantra, i had dialogues like that: boss: can you do xyz on android? Me: yes, of course, there are apps on my phone which do it, so we can do it, too! Boss: cool, go ahead and code that stuff. Customers will love it!Two days later. Me: hey boss, i just found out i need some private api for that. Forget all your business plans.

I totally agree with those two reasons for private apis: 1. Some features would be too dangerous from a security perspective 2. Some apis were not ready to ship when 1. 0 came out, so they should be published later

The post i mentioned above is about two private apis:
* Installing apps without any intervention by the user
* Calling emergency phone numbers like 911 i'm sure there are more private apis, i think those are good examples:
* Everything related to bluetooth
* Reading contancts from a sim card / writing them there but im afraid there may be many more which i'm not aware of.could we create an exhaustive list of them? I think no such list exists yet. For each api/feature it would be nice to know: 
* Why is it private?
* Will it ever be public?
* If yes, are there any schedules when this might come true, in terms of release numbers or in terms of a date?

Htc Incredible - Set Gmail Invites To Be Private By Default On Dinc

Is there a way to set gmail invites to be private by default? Google help says that if your calendar is set to private (mine is) then all invites will be private too. That is not the case though - when my husband receives an invite in outlook and he has to manually change it to private. So short of using my pc for all invites (where i can manually set them to private each time) is there a way to do this on the dinc?

Htc Desire - Get Private Calendar Back / Set - Turn Off Alarm Per Appointment

Since my desire updated to froyo, i have a few issues with the calendar.
Before froyo, there were 3 types of calendar: calendar (didn't and still don't use it)
2. Htc sync (use it for the data i want to sync with my work calendar)
3. My calendar (calendar on the phone itself, used it for my private appointments and meetings i didn't want to get synced with my work calendar).

Now that last one has disappeared and i really miss it! Now my private meetings also show up in my work calendar.
Is there a way to get this private calendar back? Or is it possible to sync only in one way? I know it was possible with my nokia, so my work data appeared on my phone, but my private data didn't get pushed to my work calendar.

Another issue i encounter with the calendar app (not sure if it is typical froyo) is that every appointment has an alarm. Again on the nokia there was only an alarm if you explicitly entered one.
Is there a way to set or turn off the alarm per appointment?

Why Eclipse Up To Date With 2.0.1 But No Tools Appear In The Ui

I was completely set up with android 2. 0 and eclipse. Everything worked fine. Then i tried to upgrade to 2. 0. 1 and now eclipse wont show any of the android plug in stuff. There is nothing in the ide relating to android anymore. No avd, no android projects, nothing.

If i go to help -> install new software, select "android eclair -" for the "work with", and look under developer tools i get these:


These are the mot current android 2. 0. 1 tools. It shows that they are already installed (clicking the "hide items that are already installed" box removes them). However, eclipse looks like i just installed it vanilla with no plugins at all.

Is there something else i need to do?  "Check for updates" says there is nothing to update. Should i blow away eclipse and reinstall it from scratch?  Doesnt that defeat the purpose of the automatic updater?

Market Not Up To Date In All Places

We have uploaded an update to our app on android market several days ago, but some users complaining about no new updates found. It looks like it takes some time for android market to be fully up-to-date in all places.

Just wondering if any of you have encountered this problem?  Is there any workaround that users can do such as manually refreshing the market content?

Stay Up-to-date On New Developments In Sdk

Is it possible to know what's coming in android 2. 0 (a. K. A. Eclair ?) I looked in git and saw a 1. 5r4 (?) From 2 days ago. Not sure what that's about. Does that mean cupcake is getting newer stuff than donut? Does master represent what is going to be, or likely to be, in eclair? Or will eclair just drop one day and we'll all scramble to figure it out then? Is it possible that donut will be short-lived and we might not see many devices with it, rather going from cupcake to eclair? Should we expect big changes going from 1. 6 to 2. 0 as you might expect in a major release? Thanks for any information on this. I just want to avoid doing a lot of work if it has to be redone soon anyway.
