      }

      final TextView achiev = (TextView)view.findViewById(R.id.achievement);
      if (getItem(position).getAchievmentRarity().compareTo("common") == 0) {

      game.setText(getItem(position).getGameName());

  }
}

Achievement update service:

package whiskeymedia.com;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

import whiskeymedia.com.vo.Achievement;
import android.app.Service;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Binder;
import android.os.IBinder;

public class AchievementUpdateService extends Service{

  private AchievementDatabase achievementDatabase;

  private final IBinder mBinder = new MyBinder();

  @Override
  public int onStartCommand(Intent intent, int flags, int startId) {
    HtmlParser htmlParser = new HtmlParser();
    try {
      List<Achievement> achievements= htmlParser.parseDocument();
      achievementDatabase.loadAchievements(achievements);
    } catch (IOException e) {
    // TODO Auto-generated catch block
    e.printStackTrace();
    }

    return Service.START_NOT_STICKY;
  }

  @Override
  public IBinder onBind(Intent arg0) {
    return mBinder;
  }

  public class MyBinder extends Binder {
    AchievementUpdateService getService() {
    return AchievementUpdateService.this;
    }
  }

}

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

How to&Answers:

The crash is because the binder you’re getting back is an instance of BinderProxy, not your local binder class. This usually happens because your activity is attempting to bind to a service that is not in the same process. When binding across process boundaries, an instance of BinderProxy is used instead of the actual instance (since that’s in a different process).

What does your AndroidManifest.xml look like?
