Hi, today I’m going to tell you how to install and configure Android Software Development Kit with Eclipse on ubuntu 11.04 environment. These days Android application developing has became major trend. So as application developers we should also consider about new trends. To set up a computer in order to develop Android applications we need 4 things.
Ok now I assume you have downloaded and installed JDK and Eclipse or already have both of them.
Now extract the Android SDK into a safe location, (keep this on your mind, that downloaded Android SDK is not a full development environment. It only contains the core libraries. When configuring it with Eclipse you need to download at least one of the android developing environments.)
Then start Eclipse ,to install the android plug-in for eclipse.
Then go to Help –> Install New Software
At the preferences window, click add
At the NAME field give Galileo or some-name , and at the LOCATION field give this URL if you use Eclipse Galileo version :
If you are using Eclipse Helios, use this URL instead of that.
Now move back to the install window
then click Add, in the top-right corner.
Enter ADT_Plugin for the Name and the following URL for the Location field:
OR you can point downloaded ADT-11.0.0.zip file as Archive (you shouldn’t extract it)
then, Click OK.
In the Available Software window , check the check-box
In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next to Developer Tools and click Next.
Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish.
When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.
Now you should add android platforms..
Start Eclipse Window –> Android SDK and AVD Manager.
This process may take some time…!
Then under the Available packages select at least one or all, then click Install Selected.
Then go to windows –> preferences, under it click Android tab and click OK.
