Java SE Development (JDK) not found installing Android SDK

This is a simple tutorial for users with Vista/Windows 7 64-bit.

So you got Eclipse(Helios, Indigo) 64 bit running on your 64-bit machine and definitely you have Java SE Development and Jave Runtime Environment in check. But when you run the Andriod SDK installer you get this error.

Java SE Development (JDK) not found.

Android SDK relies on Java SE Development Kit(JDK)
Go to http://java.sun.com > Downloads > Java SE > JD to download and install a JDK before continuing.

Note: A Java Runtime (JRE) is not enought to develop for Android.

Well its a bug in the installer, for a simple solution simply hit the Back button and click on Next. Your JDK should be detected.

Adding Server Preview Plugin on CKEditor 3.x version

If you were using the older FCKEditor online editor and got the Server Preview plugin working, you should know that the same plugin is not compatible with CKEditor. What Server Preview does is it allows you to preview content on a custom designed page you have be it an HTML, PHP or ASP page, giving you an idea how the page would look like with the content you are entering.

After scorching the net for on how to have Server Preview plugin work on CKEDitor some were a bit confusing, luckily somebody(vladfr) ported the script to work with CKEditor but he has no blog or site to document how it works I decided to create a straightforward tutorial on how to get Server Preview enabled on CKEditor.

Godaddy Checkout Issue

I encountered a problem with Godaddy today when renewing a domain using my credit card which I have stored on Godaddy, suddenly I’m getting the  error

“There was a problem authorizing your credit. Please verify your payment information or use an alternate form of payment.”

After some googling I found out it is common on Paypal type of payment method, but I’m not using Paypal. After some more investigating I remember I paid for the domain before using Paypal but now I’m paying via card.  The domain is on auto renew for Paypal.

Follow the steps below for the fix.

1. Go to My Account
2. My Payment Information
3. Click on View all Renewing Items link
4. This should list all the domains you have purchased with columns like Reciept, Next Billing date, and Auto
5. If the domain you are trying to renew is on Auto on: You would see the mode of payment either Paypal: username or the card version Visa: #####
7. Select the checkbox of the domain you are renewing and hit Update Payment Option
8. On Change Payment Type choose Select From Existing and choose your card then Save.
That should be it, go back to the checkout for your shopping cart and you should be able to purchase/renew without the error.
Hope this helps.
