Setting up an Android development environment in a nutshell
If you want to begin developing for the android platform - which components will you need to install? In a nutshell: Install latest JDK http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html Install the latest eclipse IDE "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ Install the latest Android SDK http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html Run the SDK manager after installation and install all of the packages you might need (retain default packages and add additional ones if need be). Install latest ADT (eclipse android plugin) Run eclipse, choose help --> Install new software https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/ Configure eclipse and point it to the JDK and to the android SDK. Have a nice android day :-) Avi.
