 Hello every one!

It's my first time mailing for a solution, I hope find the solution
for this...

Any way, I am developing an aplication. This one is designed to login
a user, then select how find a place, using simple data or using a
map. When I try to set in the event OnClick for select the "Map
way" (using intent):

startActivity(new Intent(getApplicationContext(),

I have problems and didn't work.

My class and manifest are:

public class MapviewController extends MapActivity {

        public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

            //Definicin del mapa a usar en la vista
            MapView mapView = (MapView) findViewById(;


<application android:label="@string/app_name" android:icon="@drawable/
        <activity android:name=".LoginController"
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
                <activity android:name=".ElegirARMapsController"

        <activity android:name=".MapviewController"
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />


Do you know any way to call the MapActivity from other?

Thx a lot for read this and trying to help me.

Code 14 according to sdk dok means:
If an attempt is made to create or change an object in a way which is

Has anybody an idea why this might be?
Thank you in advance!
