In Eclipse, following Google’s advice, I’ve added the source code of Android Market Licensing to my own application project as a linked library project. For a while I am getting a strange warning icon at the library link, exactly at the src/com.android.vending folder in the Package Explorer. I eliminated all the warnings from the source codes. My project builds without errors and warnings. I opened the Problems window where I found this message: “The resource is a duplicate of path/com/android/vending/.DS_Store and was not copied to the output folder. Unknown Java Problem. Resource: .DS_Store”
