Android: Getting all cities, towns, postal codes in near

+2 votes

I need to find all cities, towns or postal codes in radius of 20 km from place specified by latitude and longitude.

I've tried Places search from Google Places API with this query:,21.21483510&radius=20000&types(locality|postal_code)&sensor=false&key=myKey

but this seems not to work with geocode places (only business results are presented).

I've also read about Place Searches in Places Library of Google Maps JavaScript API v3, but I'm not sure if this is appropriate for Android Application (I have a http/php server, but I'm not sure how can I use it with my Android App). Can I use it directly from my application?

Maybe I could achieve it using other service? Do you have any suggestions?

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 have a question about "overhead" of getting call stack trace.Based on my understanding of dalvik code (ArrayObject* dvmDdmGetStackTraceById(u4 threadId) in dalvik/vm/Ddm.cpp file),call stack trace are tracked after all other threads are suspended.

However, "suspend" does not mean suspending all other threads but it means "just wait until all other threads sleep themselves".

So my questions are:

  1. To make all other threads sleeping themselves, does dalvik VM do some special actions such as periodically suspend all threads or something?How all other threads sleeping themselves? In Unix kernel, timer interrupt enforces all threads to sleep periodically. How it works in dalvik VM?

  2. Does "just wait until all other threads sleep themselves" imply that getting call stack trace does not interfere other threads and does not have any impact on the performance of other threads?Thus, does it just have overhead of "waiting time until all other threads sleep themselves" + "tracking call stack trace"?

If someone answer clearly these questions, it would be very helpful to me.Thanks very much!
