geometer: Thank you very much for your prompt reply. I used your guidelines and was able to compile the native code in the project. Should I now exclude the native build target from the ant build.xml ? The same question regarding the /, which does not seem to be executed in windows without modifiactions (Python interpreter is installed). It would be very helpful, if you could provide your version of the build.xml, that works in Windows, preceeded by native code compilation with Cygwin.

I am having troubles building the project using the build.xml in eclipse under Windows 7. I have installed the NDK and fixed the paths to SDK and NDK in the
sdk.dir=C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Android\\android-sdk-windows
Unfortunately I get the following error trying to build the project using ant:


D:\Setup\Android\FBReaderJ-sources-0.7.17\FBReaderJ-sources-0.7.17\build.xml:22: Execute failed: Cannot run program "D:\Java\Android\NDK\android-ndk-r5\ndk-build" (in directory "D:\Setup\Android\FBReaderJ-sources-0.7.17\FBReaderJ-sources-0.7.17"): CreateProcess error=193, %1 is not a valid Win32 application

I cannot figure out how to use the ndk-build in ant through cygwin as well.

Any ideas?

geometer, is that python + ant script available, would you be able to email it to me at nagunak at gmail

nagunak, this file should be generated automatically by android tools. We don't use Eclipse, just a simple script in python + ant.

I am using Eclipse with the Andoid ADT to compile and build your project, however I am getting an error in the following line:
"import;" in many packages. It simply does not find the quoted package. Is it somehow missing in the source?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Would it really be that hard to provide a generic Java version of FBRreaderj -- one that doesn't require an Android phone? I have an LG Viewty, and would like to read the occasional ebook on that phone, but cannotfind a usable Java ereader app (Mobipocket Java is plainly horrible).
