Hi,

I am using eclipse along with android plugin. I want to compile the .aidl files. As per my Googling, eclipse itself compiles .aidl files. However, I am not able to.
I rechecked the path of the interface mentioned in the .aidl file & location of .aidl file, but no help.

Can some one please help me how to do that?

Thanks in advance

Hi,
Thanks for your help.

I managed to get the .aidl files complie succesfully.

Problem was, the eclipse version(Ganymede) which I was using, was creating its own lib folder & was not using the lib folder which was actually present.
So, I deleted the new lib folder created by eclipse... And then, eclipse started using the actual lib folder. .aidl files then started getting compiled successfully.

Hi Sur,

I have that problem now and I'm trying to find the directory of the lib folder you mentioned. Can you please specify the path?

Thanks in advance
