i just started developing android and coming from the qt- community i'm well aware of .xml user interface design and it's benefits. Though, first thing i noticed with android was, that android parses and compiles these xml config files at app- runtime, which is most likely very costly because there is lots of xml parsing involved (LayoutInflater.java) and in my eyes it is unuseful if preprocessing would be possible.
so... i was wondering if it would be useful, to have a tool, which would convert these xml files into java- code (for release versions at least)? i searched google for some time, but didn't find anything...
is such a tool out there?
if not... would you guys be interested in helping me develop such a thing or do you think it is not necessary? just give me some ideas and comments... *g*
