How to Installing the Android SDK

Posted by BBCyber on Sunday, October 10, 2010

Here I will explain how to install the android operating system, there are several steps to install the android, I will explain one by one from each tahapanya as follows:

At this stage you must prepare the device to be installed before the start of the Android SDK, and make sure that your hardware meets the System Requirements. In addition there are also devices that need to be there to prepare supporting the Java Platform (JDK) that also you need to install, but if it already exists in your device this is not in need anymore. If you are going to develop with the help of the IDE Eclipse + Android Development Tools (ADT) Plugin, make sure you have the Eclipse IDE with the appropriate version and support the Android SDK (version 3.4 or better recommended). If you need to install Eclipse, you can download it at:

Once you have completed the first stage in the settings to your environment to develop applications for Android and then proceed by downloading the Android SDK starter package. Starter package does not provide for application development as a whole, but only as a base / core of the SDK that you can use to download other components of the SDK. Make sure the download package (package) that match your device OS.
If you downloaded a. Zip or. Tgz package (instead of the SDK installer), unpack it to a safe location on your machine. By default, the SDK files are unpacked into a directory named android-sdk-

If you downloaded the Windows installer (. Exe files), run it now and it Will check whether the proper Java SE Development Kit (JDK) is installed (installing it, if Necessary), then install the SDK Tools into a default location (which you can modify). 
Make a note of the name and location of the SDK directory on your system-you Will need to refer to the SDK directory later, Pls setting up the ADT plugin and Pls using the SDK tools from the command line. 

Stage 3. Installing the ADT Plugin for Eclipse 
Android offers a custom plugin for the Eclipse IDE, called Android Development Tools (ADT), that is designed to give you a powerful, integrated environment in which to build Android applications. It extends the capabilites of Eclipse to let you quickly set up new Android projects, create an application UI, debug your applications using the Android SDK tools, and even export signed (or unsigned) APKs in order to distribute your application. In general, developing in Eclipse with ADT is a highly recommended approach and is the fastest way to get started with Android. If you'd like to use ADT for developing Android applications, install it now. Read Installing the ADT Plugin for step-by-step installation instructions, then return here to continue the last step in setting up your Android SDK. If you prefer to work in a different IDE, you do not need to install Eclipse or ADT. Instead, you can directly use the SDK tools to build and debug your application. The Introduction to Android application development outlines the major steps that you need to complete when developing in Eclipse or other IDEs.

STAGE 4. Configure Eclipse 
After the installation is complete, open Eclipse (Application -> Programming -> Eclipse)  Then in the menubar, click Help -> Install new software 

after that proceed with  At Work with field enter:
Then click Add

Then you will see some software that is available and ready to be installed.
Then, delete the field and replace with Work With
Click Add

Select all the entries corresponding to the image, then click Next
After the installation is complete, close your Eclipse, and then run back.
On the menubar select Windows -> Preferences. On the left choose Android.
Enter the path on your Android SDK Location field.
Click Apply and OK

after the above is completed then the process of setting process, to launch the Android project, on the menu bar select File -> New -> Projectlalu select Android Project on the Wizard.

if all the above has been running as they should then android development project can be run
