-7. With the Copy projects into workspace check box selected, click Finish.
- Eclipse adds the LiveSdk project to the Package Explorer pane and then
- compiles the Android API source code in the background.
-8. You can now reference the compiled Android API source code from your Eclipse
- Android projects.

-To reference the compiled Android API source code in an Eclipse Android
-project
-1. In Eclipse, display the Package Explorer pane, if it is not already visible.

- project, and you can now call the Live Connect Android API from your own
- Android project.
-

- project's manifest, as shown in the following steps. If you don't add the
- Internet permission, your app may have problems accessing Live Connect
- web services later.
