apk2bar got "Android SDK path is not set" after ADT updated

After my Android ADT was updated, i found the blackberry apk2bar does not work anymote. It throws always "Android SDK path is not set" Even I have set it in system envrionment.

There is 2 solutions:

1 . As a temporary solution, you can copy all of the files from /build-tools/17.0.0 back to /platform-tools. This will allow our tools (apk2barVerfifier, apk2bar, etc.) to function as expected. You may need to provide the SDK location directly to the tool, depending how you've got things setup.

2. I prefer andhave tested this solution:


navigator.geolocation not work in Android 4.1.2, soulution

One hybrid app with Phonegap 1.9.0 worked fine in Android 3.0 and 4.0, but when I update the OS to 4.1.2, the navigator.geolocation stop working.
Firstly i update the project with new version of phonegap cordova 2.7.0, it does not help. And I found even i test navigator.geolocation in Android native brower, under this demo link:

My orginal code:

Tomcat Socket accept failed Too many open files

If you open many HTTP connections during the same time in your service in Tomcat, you will probably get such exception: Socket accept failed Too many open files.

How to fix:

open $tomcat/bin/

add this line:
ulimit -n 8192

ulimit -n //this will set unlimit

then restart tomcat and start with 'catalina start', Java will run with the given limit above.

Route-Me: iOS map library

Route-Me is an open source map library that runs natively on iOS. It's designed to look and feel much like the inbuilt iOS map library, but it's entirely open, and works with any map source.

Currently, OpenStreetMap, Microsoft VirtualEarth, CloudMade, OpenAerialMap, OpenCycleMap, SpatialCloud, TileStream7, and two offline-capable, database-backed formats (DBMap and MBTiles) are supported as map sources.
