My main problem with developing in Android is that the emulator seems to continually get disconnected from eclipse. This always happens the 2-3 time I try to upload my .apk from eclipse without rebooting the emulator. Eclipse indicates this with an empty DDMS ->Device section and logcat stays blank - sometimes I'm not sure if the new code made it on the device.
The only fix I have for this is to shut down eclipse, and restart it. With the restarting of Eclipse, on top of the emulator boot time, I can't get any momentum going in my development.
Is there a way to reconnect the emulator to eclipse without having to restart Eclipse or even the Emulator?
