    I am attempting to install this on my MAC and I get an error on attempting to run the file in Eclipse. Also it is work noting that if I run it via terminal it compiles and runs just fine. I am just attempting to run a very basic hello world program.

    The error is
    Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: HelloWorld2
    Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: HelloWorld2
    at Method)

      Either you don’t have JAVA_HOME/bin in your PATH or you downloaded the JRE instead of the JDK. Check the directory where you installed Java and see if your /bin directory has javac.exe in it. If you don’t have a /bin, download the JDK and install it.

    Hi Derek,

    I am facing some problems post installing Android developer tools. The pop up comes when eclipse restarts and pop up says “Location of the Android SDK has not been setup in the preferences”. Moreover when I click on Android -> new Application project, it throws an error pop up saying ” The tools need to be updated via the SDK Manager” .. please help why is it so. I tried to google this, and the pop up is exactly same as in following link.

    Thanks in advance !

    Went to oracle to run JDK 7 x64 as indicated in your video. It halts and returns message ~not a valid win32 prog. I’m on Windows 7 which I believe to be an x64 OS. Seen this before ? Is there a solution ? They’re bragging about JDK 8 now. Should I ‘upgrade’?
    Thanks for the excellent work you put into your very informative videos !
