Default how to compile the source code?!

The book includes source but there are no instructions about how to compile it, either from command line or the steps to follow in eclipse.
We'd appreciate a short guide - thanks!

Default answer

I figured this out:
  • (optional) you may want to Edit the ZIP file to have leading zero before chapter numbers "Chapter 2" --> "Chapter 02"
  • File->Import->Existing project into workspace
  • Select an archive file... pick the zip you downloaded from WROX
  • Finish
  • Go over all the open projects and close them.
  • For every project you work with, goto properties, change the API version to 7
  • Clean the project and let it rebuild (should be no errors, except for few chapters that are miscoded to the latest sdk)
