In the Android Programming Tools Knol collection, Checkstyle for Android with the checkstyle files to  use and Eclipse Checkstyle Settings for Android.

Some new Android Programing Knols that I am authoring cover how to use the androidtabs 3d party library and more webview stuff. I expect to have them up sometime tonight.

Yes, the knol is updated to detail the Manifest and drawable settings to have one project code base target android 1.5, 1.6, etc. Because of the way ADT works you still have to manually launch the android 1.5 emulator and do an adb apk push but it works.

The next knol on Android programing will step through the steps to have one code base but have it run as an application on Android 1.5, 1.6, 2.0.1, and 2.1. The information is not hidden but spread out so it will be helpful to have it all in one place.
