1. Determine which .jar those types come from.
2. Ensure that "somehow" that .jar is included within your app.

(2) has a variety of solutions. You could use AndroidJavaLibrary within the Application project, EmbeddedJar or EmbeddedReferenceJar within a Binding project, or <uses-library/> if it's a "platform-provided" type (this is the case for Google Maps v1, and certain Amazon libraries IIRC, meaning those types will _never_ appear within classes.dex, and that's OK.)
