When building custom packages into the AOSP, I know that we can link with prebuilt jars, but can we also link with prebuilt, or alternatively build library _packages_?
Our situation is this:
We've built a home screen replacement that is spread over two android projects, one containing common source code and resources used for a variety of our projects, and the other containing the launcher specific source code and resources. We've be able to build our launcher along with AOSP, and include the jar produced by the common project, but it's not clear how to acquire the resource definitions and the resources contained in the common project. A quick perusal of these forums didn't turn anything promising up.
So, question is: is it possible to utilize the resources of an external package in a package that I'm building along with AOSP, and if so, how is it done?
