How do I use GoogleLoginService?

Postby androidian » Sat Oct 25, 2008 11:52 pm

I'm trying to find out how Android gets the user's Google account
login details. This is so that I may use their authenticated token in
my app which will need it for one of the Google Data services.

I assume from the built in "GoogleLoginService" which I can see in
LogCat as well as in the Development Tools on the emulator, that
somehow a configuration app like this is where the user will set their
Google account credentials (although I'm sure it won't be called
Development Tools on the real device), and this service is where the
authenticated token can be picked up by the email app, the calendar
app, the contacts app etc.

But I can't find any reference to the GoogleLoginService in the
documentation, so I don't even know if this is how I'm supposed to
handle logging into Google apps. I can't find any class called
GoogleLoginService in my Eclipse dev environment.

Can someone tell me how to use this, or am I looking in the wrong
place? How does an app accomplish this?
