Setting Up Your Android Development Environment

  • Wallace Jackson


It’s time to get your hands dirty. In this chapter, starting from scratch, you’ll equip a computer system to develop Android applications. You’ll first install Oracle’s (formerly Sun’s) Java 6 SE JDK and the Java 6 Runtime Environment, then the Eclipse for Java EE IDE, and finally the Android SDK, the tool set that provides Eclipse with the tools you’ll need to create Android apps. Sound convoluted? It is. After all, this is high-end software development, remember. What these Software Development Kits (SDK) are, and how exactly they relate to each other will become evident as you proceed through this chapter.
