Default Manifest Editor - Application tab shows empty page

Hello,

I have done the Todo List example from Chapter 2, and while at Chapter 3, I opened the AndroidManifest.xml file using the Manifest Editor. My problem is that the Application tab is empty, as opposed to how it is supposed to look (Figure 3-2, page 50). All other tabs work correctly. I have the ADT and the Android Editor plugins installed on both Eclipse 3.4.1, and Eclipse JEE 3.3.2. I tried reinstalling the plugins but I get the same results. The AndroidManifest.xml file looks like below:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
      package="com.paad.todolist"
      android:versionCode="1"
      android:versionName="1.0.0">
    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
        <activity android:name=".ToDoList"
                  android:label="@string/app_name">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>
</manifest>
Any ideas why the Application tab shows me an empty page?

Thank you,
Mihai

Hi Mihai,
I've never seen this particular error before -- could I get you to ZIP up your project and attach it to a reply message?

Do you get the same problem with other projects or just this one?

Hi Reto,

This happens with all Android projects that I have. I guess it has little to do with the applications, and more to do with the environment (Eclipse, ADT Plugin). Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post attachments ("Only Wrox Staff, Authors, and technical editors are allowed to post attachments (for example code files related to their book) and pictures.").

Any idea of an "extra" configuration step that I am missing?

Thank you,
Mihai

Hmm, I'm not sure what to recommend. As as first step I'd suggest completely removing the ADT plugin and reinstalling it as that seems the most likely place the problem is occuring. Let me know if that does anything.

I already tried that before I posted my initial message. Please see my first post for details.

Thank you,

maybe its smth with your eclipse setup

example: WST (optional, but needed for the Android Editors feature; included in most Eclipse IDE packages)

which eclipse version are you using? maybe try a fresh eclipse
I took this one: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/dow...-SR1-win32.zip

works fine for me. ;-)

That is the problem. I installed the JEE version of eclipse that has the WST component, and it does not work. Basically, like I mentioned in my first post, I tried it on Eclipse 3.4.1 and on Eclipse JEE 3.3.2 an it does not work. I reinstalled the plugin and still it does not work.

Thank you,
Mihai
