dynamically creating/deleting entry points

How do i create/delete app alternate entry points dynamically???


The alternate entry point will always point to the same app... i just need to change the args passed to the main(String[] args)....... and i need that new alternate entry point appears as a new homescreen icon to the user................


Like today i want 1 entry point with arg "1", tomorrow i want 2 entry points (one with arg "1" and the other arg "2").... after tomorrow, i do not want the entry point with arg "1"  (then will be in my homescreen just 1 icon entry point... the one with the arg "2"....).................

Re: dynamically creating/deleting entry points

Entry points are created a build time, it is not possible to dynamically create them.  However, you can launch a third party application from another third party application.  This may provide the functionality you are looking for from within an application.
