Creating a ListFragment

Create a new class named CrimeListFragment. Click Browse to choose a superclass. Search for and select ListFragment – android.support.v4.app and then click Finish to generate CrimeListFragment.

ListFragment was introduced in Honeycomb, but it is duplicated in the support library. So compatibility is not a problem as long as you use the support library class, android.support.v4.app.ListFragment.

In CrimeListFragment.java, override onCreate(Bundle) to set the title of the activity that will host this fragment.
