(Thanks Reto, my copy of the book arrived yesterday.)

This is not one of these books that's padded out with loads of screenshots. It's solid but readable prose with lots of code. It's obvious all the way through that Reto is really enthusiastic about the platform. I don't have an Android phone yet, so I'm restricted to the SDK.

When I run this code in eclipse with the SDK I downloaded a couple days ago I get a NullPointerException in Dalvik. Anyone else experiencing this?

I'm running the latest SDK using Eclipse 3.4.1 on Ubuntu intrepid with all updates applied.

Here are the details:

WAMF [Android Application]

bump. Anyone know what is going on here? The exception is not thrown inside code I have access to (not in WAMF). In eclipse it says that the source is not available which make sense since it looks like it is crashing inside Dalvik. Is this a bug in the SDK? I googled around for similar bugs and didn't find any except in older versions of the SDK.

Hi Steve,
   Did you download the 'finished' source code from the Google Code project, or did you follow the tutorial? If the later, it might be worth downloading the 'working' source to check if it's a problem with your setup or the code you're running.
