Android - phonegap error: Error parsing XML: unbound prefix

I restarted eclipse and the error changed to "error: Error parsing XML: unbound prefix" on the same line

I am trying to use this plugin in my android phonegap application. It is a local notification plugin. I am getting the error in my config.xml file on this line:

<gap:plugin name="de.appplant.cordova.plugin.local-notification" version="0.6.2" />


There is a similar question about this problem here, but the answer is not related to my problem.

Here is my config.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<widget xmlns = "http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
id = "com.xxx.xxx"
version = "2.0.0">

I am using eclipse with the adt plugin. I generated an android application and made some modification to it so it would work with phonegap (its working fine without the local notification plugin). I am using cordova 2.9.0 version.
How can I solve this problem?

Answer

You need to add a xml namespace.

  xmlns:gap="http://phonegap.com/ns/1.0"

Your root xml schould look like this one:

  <widget id="com.example.MyApp" 
    version="1.0.0" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" 
    xmlns:gap="http://phonegap.com/ns/1.0">

good luck!
