Description Atsushi Eno 2012-12-10 02:28:59 UTC
When we bind Google Maps V2 API, it will raise an error, saying that the app needs <meta-data> element in <application> element:

Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: API key not found.  Check that <meta-data android:name="com.google.android.maps.v2.API_KEY" android:value="your API key"/> is in the <application> element of AndroidManifest.xml

However, <meta-data> element from MetaDataAttribute is not supported for <application>. It is generated on e.g. <activity> (when we put the attribute on Activity class).

So far we can manually edit AndroidManifest.xml to specify it.
