Activity.java wasn't created with android prject

when I create a new android project on eclipse the activity java file is not created. Is it normal?

My IDE is the Eclipse Luna 4.4, the ADT Plugin and SDK Manager was updated with the version 23.

Anybody can help me?

It's a bug. At times it doesn't even when the option is checked.

Fix 1 - delete the current project and create from scratch

Fix 2 - just create a blank .java file in the src -> your package directory and write in a few lines of code

Hope this helps. Ask again if you need help

is there any way to fix this or should I always create the files manually? files in the folder layout also are not being created.

Have you updated to the new ADT 23.0? If you have its a bug in there. I started facing the same problem ever since I updated. Only when I select an empty project that I see the files being created in the folders

Does you Create New Activity Window look like this


If it does then you will face the issue until Google resolves it
