Google Maps API Android - Error inflating class fragment

I know that there are many topics on StackOverFlow regarding this problem, however none of them could help me. I am doing a very basic application which I just want to display a MAP.

  • I Have imported the google-play-services_lib to my main project.
  • I have generated my API Key.

This is my AndroidManifest.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.linkme2night"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName="1.0" >

    <uses-sdk
        android:minSdkVersion="11"
        android:targetSdkVersion="17" />

    <permission
        android:name="com.linkme2night.permission.MAPS_RECEIVE"
        android:protectionLevel="signature" />

    <uses-permission android:name="com.linkme2night.permission.MAPS_RECEIVE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />

    <uses-feature
        android:glEsVersion="0x00020000"
        android:required="true" />

    <application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
        <activity
            android:name="com.linkme2night.view.interactwithvenue.InteractWithVenueActivity"
            android:label="@string/app_name" >
        </activity>
        <activity
            android:name="com.linkme2night.view.openvenuesmap.OpenVenuesMapActivity"
            android:label="@string/app_name" >
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>

        <meta-data
            android:name="com.google.android.maps.v2.API_KEY"
            android:value="AIzaSyBJVHZJr1Q14fcvEHBkAUT1A_ZH4eQlnrI" />
    </application>

</manifest>

This is my Layout XML file:

<fragment xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:map="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:id="@+id/the_map"
    android:name="com.google.android.gms.maps.SupportMapFragment "
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

This is my code:

public class OpenVenuesMapActivity extends FragmentActivity  {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_open_venues_map);
    }
}

I am running the application on my Sony XPeria J. I get the following Error generated by Loc Cat:

Your min sdk is 11. You will need to add support library for api versions below 12

    <uses-sdk
    android:minSdkVersion="11"
    android:targetSdkVersion="17" />

Fragments were introduced in HoneyComb. So for backward compatibality you need add support library

 android:name="com.google.android.gms.maps.SupportMapFragment "

Since you din't add support library you got classcastexception

To add support library check the link below
