I am getting an error "while writing android.widget.SimpleAdapter".. on adapting-data-for-display-in-a-list challenge task 1.

this is my code:

import android.os.Bundle; import android.widget.SimpleAdapter;

public class WebsiteListActivity extends ListActivity {

public static final String KEY_NAME = "name";
public static final String KEY_URL = "url";

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    String[] keys = { KEY_NAME, KEY_URL };
    int[] ids = { android.R.id.text1, android.R.id.text2 };

  HashMap <String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
  map.put(KEY_NAME, "treehouse");
  map.put(KEY_URL, "http://teamtreehouse.com/home");
  HashMap <String, String> map2 = new HashMap<String, String>();
