Library Package Dependencies on Android

+1 vote

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?

I put the .so files into jniLibs, but when I generate an aar files, I found the menu of the files was wrong with some empty dirs.

Can u help me to make it right?

I changed the Android kitkat framework to add the logging statement whenever an application creates an intent. For the same I did changes in the file framework/base/core/java/android/content/ . However, there are different overloaded methods in this file for creating the intent. Some have the package info but other don't have.

Please let me know how to got the package from which the intent is created.

I've been trying to figure out how an android app is installed by browsing AOSP.

The has the gids for the corresponding permissions by parsing the platform.xml file.

PackageInstallerActivity parses and checks for any existing packages and then invokes the InstallAppProgress

I was able to follow the paths where the package is parsed and validated and PackagerManager.installPackage() method is invoked to install the package. I know this makes a native call to the JNI library. The corresponding aidl file is IPackageManager.aidl.

What I want to know is where can I find the Native cpp code related to this aidl mentioned above?
