Hi,

I am new to android application. In web application, we can configure error page for the entire application in web.xml.

Like that, is it possible to configure a error page ( Activity ) for entire android application.

Yes. It can be done. I instantiate a helper class that catches all unhandled exceptions, dumps the data to a file and on the next run prompts the user to e-mail the crash data to me.

Could you please provide me more information about the helper class that catches all unhandled exceptions?

Please provide me all information about this class like configuration details and super class.


if possible, point me to a good link or share your class.

I'm sorry, but I cannot provide you any specific code. It is not mine to share. I can tell you that I instantiate the class as a singleton from within my application. Here's at least a hint ...



I hope that's helpful.
