Updating Eclipse

After downloading Eclipse, from the links provided in this course, I updated the SDK and checked for updates for the ADT, the ADT returned with "no updates found." However, when I close out and re-enter Eclipse I receive a message stating I'm running version 22.6.2 and need 23.0.0. I check for updates again and get the "no updates found message." So I am unable to move forward.

Also, when I started the Ribbit project it didn't load correctly and I can't get a MainActivity file like in the video.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

First and foremost, STOP USING ECLIPSE!

Google has stopped supporting Eclipse for Android Development. The Ribbit course in Treehouse is set to be deprecated after I talked to Ben Jakuben on Twitter.

The only people using Eclipse right now are Android devs working on older/legacy projects.

You're going to find Android Studio to be a huge upgrade to Eclipse. Even when I was learning how to develop for Android, it was super difficult learning with Eclipse. The moment I switched over to Android Studio, I learned so much faster.

Good luck!
