android – Cannot find the class file for java.lang.Object-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I reinstalled my eclipse. and then imported all the projects in the Eclipse, but every project has a common error:

Cannot find the class file for java.lang.Object. at Line 1.

I have checked my Java Path. But not able to sort it out.

How to solve:

Check this if it works:

There is a problem with your java repositories. I guess..:

goto Help>Install New Software> Click on Add Button .

on popup:

Name: ADT


Install all the available softwares in the list. This may work.

Have a good day!!!


Right click on Project–> Properties, Java Build Path.

Check whether you have JRE installed. If installed click on EDIT and check whether its pointing to correct location

A quicker way will be

Right Click Project—> Properties—>Build Path—>Add External Jars–> Find your android-xx.Jar e.g android-17.jar

In my case I’m using the adt and it is here


Hope it helps


This happened to me when I tried to merge two branches of an Android project using eGit. For some reason my build path basically disappeared (possibly one of the files was untracked).

To get the JRE and android libraries back, I just right-clicked on the project in the project explorer, and hit Android Tools -> Fix Project Properties (these options are only available if you have Android ADT installed).


Try this:

Go to Build Path -> Libraries -> Add Library -> JRE System Library -> Select JRE

I am not sure but you might be missing JRE System Library in your project, this does not happen often but it is possible.


I just had this problem and all I had to do was clean the entire workspace, i.e. all projects in the workspace. The error went away.


I’ve had this problem after installing a newer version of Google ADT.
The solution, at least running OS X, is to make a copy of your project to a safe location, delete it completely from Eclipse and then import it again using File->Import->General->Existing Projects into Workspace.


I am Using Google’s on OS X Mavericks
Android Developer Tools
Build: v22.2.1-833290

but I am almost sure I have done in the past with previous OSX and ADT versions.


I had this issue too and in my case the issue was that the following line was missing from the .classpath file of the current project:

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER"/>

Adding it solved the problem for me.


This error is because one of “Android Private Libraries” is either corrupted or of wrong version.
In my case it was android-support-v4.jar.
I replaced it with one from a working project and it works.
