File not found, hello world application

Hey guys, I have recently started reading the Android SDK documentation and thought I'd give it a go. After installing Eclipse and the ADT plugin I thought I was all set. I was wrong.

Everytime I try to run my application I get file not found errors on all of the executable files in the android/tools directory. This only seems to happen with android, i've tried re-downloading many times, all files are executable so I have no idea what's wrong. Could any shed any light on this?

[haze@shirley tools]$ ls
NOTICE.txt apkbuilder draw9patch hprof-conv sqlite3
adb ddms emulator lib traceview
android dmtracedump hierarchyviewer mksdcard
[haze@shirley tools]$ emulator
bash: /home/haze/android/tools/emulator: No such file or directory

And for the Eclipse plugin I get this error:

home/haze/android/platforms/android-1.1/tools/aapt: No such file or directory


[haze@shirley ~]$ ls /home/haze/android/platforms/android-1.1/tools/
aapt aidl dexdump dx lib

I'm really confused.. and I just want to start developing

Google analytics API and eclipse

Has anyone on here got the google analytics api to install
and run on the android sdk with eclipse?

I'm using ther latest analytics api, android sdk and eclipse 3.5

I can get the 'import' files to install, but none of the analytics code ever compiles. I get messages which suggest it's just not setup correctly.

Anyone with any experience of the analytics api that can help me or at least tell me what setup they're running it on would be helpful.

Many thanks


Problem with pending intent with notification

Hello Friends, I am developing some application, in that I have implemented notification for message receiving. but when I click on notification it doesn't show desired intent. the code for that is as under.

public void notifyUser(String str, Context context, long receivedSms) {
String convertedStr = "abc";
NotificationManager noteManager = (NotificationManager) context
Notification note = new Notification(R.drawable.icon,
"Message Received", System.currentTimeMillis());
note.defaults = Notification.DEFAULT_LIGHTS;
Intent showSms = new Intent();
PendingIntent contentIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0,
showSms, 0);
if (receivedSms == 1) {
note.setLatestEventInfo(context, "SMS in Lango", convertedStr,
} else if (receivedSms > 1) {
note.setLatestEventInfo(context, "SMS in Lango", Long
.toString(receivedSms + 1)
+ " Messages unread", contentIntent);
notificationVar = true;
noteManager.notify(R.layout.buddy_list, note);

Is there any problem in code???
The manifest file code for particular class as under.

Can the handset LED be maniuplated without using a Notification object?

Good day all,

I would like to be able to control the LED on the handset with finer grained control than is offered by the Notification object. Notifications allow one to change the rate of flashing; e.g. 300 milliseconds on, 1000 milliseconds off, but that's it.

Essentially, I would like to turn the LED on and off at will at arbitrary times. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Check out this post here

And the code source here

In this post, I want to expose you AndroSQL, a SQLite framework based
on Enum that I builded to help me in my Android applications

I created an example application with a multiple selections dialog,
where you can create time schedules, edit and list them.

This example implement a tipical many-to-many relations.
