Yeee... Found the way to add libraries, and also progaurd setting, here is my file and praugard file:

LOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir)include $(CLEAR_VARS)
LOCAL_STATIC_JAVA_LIBRARIES := jackson-annotations-2.2.3 jackson-core-2.2.3 jackson-databind-2.2.3
LOCAL_SRC_FILES := $(call all-java-files-under, src) $(call all-renderscript-files-under, src)
include $(BUILD_PACKAGE)LOCAL_PREBUILT_STATIC_JAVA_LIBRARIES := libs/jackson-annotations-2.2.3.jar libs/jackson-core-2.2.3.jar libs/jackson-databind-2.2.3.jar

include $(call all-makefiles-under,$(LOCAL_PATH))

And here is the proguard.flags file:
-dontwarn org.w3c.dom.bootstrap.DOMImplementationRegistry

I hope it would also be helpful to others, facing same issue.

Does anyone know if it is possible to realize the distributed compilation of Java? Are there any limitations or problems of dependencies ? Are there any Open Source tools which could help to do this?

I am often confused with Dex Optimization details. Here are few details I know of.

Kindly correct me if i am wrong ? While exploring the source code, i found that package manager scans all the external libraries, base frameworks, system packages, and vendor packages for dex optimization.

So, if I understand correct 'dex optimization' can be done both in compilation time and execution time.

Also, surfing in the internet, DISABLE_DEXPREOPT has an impact over this dex optimization when to be done?

Which one do I have to opt?


while building with the below command

make TARGET= droid -j6  

According to the source code, I understood if .odex is available as part of .jar or apk file, then it ignores dex optimization, while booting.

Kindly correct me if i am wong?. and suggest.

My ultimate goal is to create a new lock screen for android so I thought that the best way to do that is to modify the source files that already implement the lock screens in android and particularly in android 4.2 or 4.3. I followed the instructions in and i successfully downloaded and built android 4.3 in my computer. The next step is the modification of some java files. I want to do this with eclipse. I have eclipse 4.3.1 and I am trying to follow the instructions in . The problem is that the instructions are for older version of eclipse and with the new version i cant follow the 5th step as shown below :

  • If Eclipse asks you for a workspace location, choose the default.
  • If you have a "Welcome" screen, close it to reveal the Java perspective.
  • File > New > Java Project
  • Pick a project name, "android" or anything you like.
  • Wait while it sets up the project. (You'll see a subtle progress meter in the lower right corner.)

How can I do this correctly in eclipse 4.3.1 ; If i follow the wright steps will I be able to import all android 4.3 in eclipse without showing any errors? Please help me.

Does anyone know how I can enable ART in AOSP 4.4? I complete a successful build and load it onto a Nexus 4 (mako). Everything seems to work fine, however, when I go to the settings and change the default runtime to ART, it reboots and never comes back up. When looking through the logs (adb logcat), I see a bunch of segmentation faults coming from Is ART supported in AOSP?

Please note that when I take the official image from here: I am able to enable ART so my theory is that it is not yet enabled in AOSP.
