comment Is there a good reason not to display error messages to users?
Android doesn't silently kill apps, it tells the user either that the app is not responding or has stopped unexpectedly.

comment Is it possible in C++ to define several methods at once?
There is only one member variable, the HashMap :). It sounds wrong, but for other engineers who use this class it is very useful to have access to all this data in a single object.

comment Is it possible in C++ to define several methods at once?
Because I am implementing an interface this is not possible, there are several other implementations and my class must be compatible with the interface. Also there is value to storing this data in a HashMap so I need to keep that as well.

comment Why was Android's ContentProvider created?
3rd parties could always just access the database file directly, no inter-process communication needed there.

I disagree with point number 3 and partially disagree with point number 2. If you think that ForceSpecifiedWindowPosition is too long a name for a method then you are probably sacrificing good method names for short method names. There is no good reason to make a method name short if it loses meaning. Your other points are fairly obvious, I do completely agree with your point number 5.

The defect is in the operating system, would love to fix it if I could.
