Android Compatibility Lib + Google Maps Hack

About

A port of the Android Compatibility package which makes FragmentActivity extend MapActivity. This is a hack to make it possible to use a MapView in a Fragment.

Downloading

For pre-compiled .jar files, visit the Downloads page.

Building

You can build the jar using Ant:

git clone git://github.com/petedoyle/android-support-v4-googlemaps.git
cd android-support-v4-googlemaps
ant

The default Ant target will build the jar and place it in the build/jar folder.

Alternatively, the source also includes an Eclipse project which you can use to add it as a build dependency for your project. Import it into Eclipse using File > Import > Existing Projects into Workspace..., then configure the build path of your project to require the android-support-v4-googlemaps project.

Changelog

September 18, 2012

Revision 10

Based on r10 of the Android Support Library. Google's changelog available here.

This release also updates the build script so it'll be easier to keep in-sync with the official google releases. The new process is very simple:

  • Download the newest Android Support Library release using the Android SDK Manager.
  • Delete and replace the support/ folder with $ANDROID_HOME/extras/android/support
  • Re-customize FragmentActivity to extend MapActivity (example)
  • Build as usual, using 'ant'

In addition, the fix for Android bug #22226 has been included in Google's official release. Because of that, this release is once again the exact Google release with only this change.

Revision 7

New release based on r7 of the Android Compatibility Library.

December 16, 2011

Revision 6

Released android-support-v4-r6-googlemaps.jar and android-support-v13-r6-googlemaps.jar based on revision 6 of the Android Compatibility Library. This also includes a fix for Android bug #22226.

This also includes the additions from Google's r5 release. For the changelog of what changed in ACL r5 and r6, see http://developer.android.com/sdk/compatibility-library.html.

Revision 4

Released android-support-v4-r4-googlemaps.jar and android-support-v13-r4-googlemaps.jar based on revision 4 of the Android Compatibility Library.

Revision 2

Released android-support-v4-r2-googlemaps.jar based on revision 2 of the Android Compatibility Library (see downloads).

Limitations

Currently, one downside is that ALL classes extending FragmentActivity are MapActivitys. Its possible to make a separate class (i.e. FragmentMapActivity), but it requires some refactoring of the FragmentActivity code.

Feel free to file a bug to request it or fork this project to fix it.
