1. Problems in putting android source in eclipse


I have followed this instruction to put android source in eclipse.

But I get this error:

The project was not built due to "A resource exists with a different
Fix the problem, then try refreshing this project and building it
since it may be inconsistent

Can you please tell me how to fix it?


2. Package naming/renaming

I am trying to do an update to an app that was released under 1.0
about a year ago. When it was released, I used the package naming
convention: "".

At the time, I thought this was the correct naming convention. In
retrospect, this is not the case. The AndroidMarket does not accept
new apps with "" package names, so I am assuming the way I
did it is frowned upon/disallowed. So my question is two-fold.

#1: What is a correct method for selecting package names? I have
started using a convention "com.myAppClass.appname". Where
"myAppClass" is a arbitrary name that applies to a group of related
apps and "appname" is the specific application (e.g.
"com.mycategory.appDemo" and "com.mycategory.appFull"). Is this right?

#2: What do I do about the app already released as a ""
package? My assumption is to recreate it using the above convention.
What will the effect be on users who want to upgrade the application
through the market ... or will the market even accept an upgrade
version using a different package name?
