InstantiationException (id=830051271736)


#1

Hi. I am in Chapter 9. Everything was working fine up to page 177 when we are asked to run the blank “CrimeListActivity”. When I run it, the app crashes. I ran it in debug mode and got the subject error with the following detail:

detailMessage “can’t instantiate class com.bignerdranch.android.criminalintent.CrimeListActivity” (id=830051271768)

The activity thread says “Source not found” and gives me a button to “Edit Source Lookup Path…”.

I have had no problems with Eclipse finding any source files in the past. I have checked and I do find “CrimeListActivity.class” in directory:

C:\Users\jdubey1.WIPRO\workspace\CriminalIntent\bin\classes\com\bignerdranch\android\criminalintent

I also find “CrimeListActivity.java” in directory:

C:\Users\jdubey1.WIPRO\workspace\CriminalIntent\src\com\bignerdranch\android\criminalintent

The code in my manifest is:

   <activity
        android:name="com.bignerdranch.android.criminalintent.CrimeListActivity">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
	        <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        </intent-filter>
    </activity>

I have tried both the fully qualified line above and just “.CrimeListActivity” and neither one works. Can someone help me resolve this issue?

Thanks,
Joel
