Restart Eclipse. j. After Eclipse restarts, you need to tell it where the SDK is located. ” In the Preferences dialog, select “Android” in the left column. k. ” Setting Up Your Development Environment | 17 Congratulations—you have installed a complete Android development environment without spending a penny. As you’ll see in this and subsequent chapters, the environment includes a very sophisticated set of tools to make Android programming easier, including: • An Integrated Development Environment based on Eclipse, arguably the premier IDE for Java development.

30 | Chapter 3: Using the Android Development Environment for Real Applications Android Library This is just what it says: a pointer to the library of Android class files that Eclipse links to in order to provide the Android APIs. You don’t need to do anything with this entry, but if you ever need to confirm that a particular Android class is (still) there, this is where you would look. assets folder This folder is useful for holding assets that are used by the application: fonts, external JAR files, and so on.

Java Having seen the XML resources that Android uses to launch the application, we can turn to some Java code that initializes the application. java in the Java editor. After the package declaration and the import statements, the MicroJobs class is defined. Most Activities (and the other activities in this application) extend the Activity class. Because we want to display a map in this application, and we want to take advantage of the powerful mapping features built into Android, we declare that MicroJobs will extend MapActivity, as shown in the following code segment.
