As I wasn't sure where to post this question, I put it here...

Does anybody have or know of an ecore model that covers the key concepts in Android. Not from a usage perspective, neither from a detailed implementation perspective but from the perspective of the Android architecture, focusing in particular on the part related to activities, windows, surfaces, views, etc etc, preferably with an indication of which of these items are managed by what parts in Android, i.e., activity manager, system server, window manager, surfaceflinger, audioflinger, power manager etc etc.

I have been able to reconstruct an UML model from the android.jar This did help, but not really (plus it is not an ecore model). I would need something that is at the concept level not at the implementation level...

Bart,

No I don't know of one. Maybe someone else does.

You need a forum more specific to Android; see http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/225513/ .

Thanks for the pointer. All but one of these forums I knew. But all of these focus on the USE of Android and not on what happens under the bonnet...
