XML layout files are not associated to any java file.
In the template application created by activityCreator or the Eclipse plugin, you should see a call to setContentView in the activity onCreate method.
What this does is set a layout (referenced by its R.layout id) as the content of the activity UI.
Any activity can use any layout as their content. Activities can share the same layout, or activities could dynamically change their content.
