Eclipse, ADT, strings.xml and java.lang.NullPointerException

On a clean installation of Eclipse and the Android Development Tools (ADT), and for a new Android project, when trying to edit the strings.xml file, a java.lang.NullPointerException is thrown.

To fix the problem, edit strings.xml directly, bypassing the GUI, by double clicking the file in the Eclipse workbench, then selecting strings.xml from the tab at the bottom. Then, replace the line that reads:



<resources xmlns:android="">
