 I have unzipped eclipse, installed android tools through "add
site" (they are listed in the installed tab) and have installed JDK
and JRE that came with netbeans. I have the installations to date. I
cannot for the life of me find out why Android is not showing up in
the last step for installation (The part of going to menu in eclipse:
"Windows->preferences and select Android on the left"). It simply is
not listed here! I have uninstalled all java installations and
folders, and reinstalled with the latest copy, and have reinstalled
android for eclipse. What am I doing wrong? I have looked around the
web and the only help I saw was about getting the right Java JRE
installed. My copy is JDK with netbeans, but I saw EE and Jfx bundles
to download. I am so confused why it does not show up in preferences,
yet it says it is installed in the Software Updates section...Any help
would be much appreciated!

1. How to display Camera

So I made a class called that has a constructor
and all of the Camera methods, but what I'm confused about is how to
instantiate and display the camera in my activity I called For that, I have this:

package com.schleudaastudios.typewalker;

import android.os.Bundle;

public class TypeWalker extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        CameraSurfaceView cam = new CameraSurfaceView(this);


But when I run it, it crashes immediately. I have no idea how to make
the camera display, any help?


2. Thread in Service paused after screen is turned off?

In my application I created a service in which I download stuff from the
The code of the service looks like this:

class SomeService ... {
    public void onCreate() {
        Thread t = new Thread(fetch);

    private Runnable fetch = new Runnable() {
        public void run() {
           while (true) {
             counter ++;

The problem is, when I turn the screen off, the thread t seems to be paused
(I used the counter to find this).

How can I keep the thread running even if the screen is off?
 (BTW Strangely, if I connect the phone to the computer, the thread will
keep running even if the screen is turned off.)

Thx in  advance.
