Cannot use Random type  RSS feed

Hi,

I'm quite new at Java, although I have other programming experience.

I'm trying to compile a code sample, which makes use of the Random type. The problem is that Eclipse produces the following error message:

The import android.util.Random cannot be resolved

This seems, strange, because in the Type Hierarchy browser I can easily find the unit and the Random type. I'm using Eclipse Juno, 20121004-1855 with Android SDK at API level 17. Not sure what other information would be needed to resolve this error.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Effel

Sorry for bother you guys, I just found the solution: I should have imported java.util.Random, rather than android.util.Random!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
