    Question What steps are needed to upload a Java game to tablet/phone (android)??

    Hey,
    I'm a 3rd year student and need to know what steps are involved in implementing a game to a tablet/phone (android touch screen). The idea is to create a touch screen pool game in 2D. To fulfil the implementation it must be functioning on a touch screen device.
    My question is relating to all the steps to fulfil the implementation and has nothing to do with the game as such.
    I've built a game in Eclipse using the java files and it also runs on the Netbeans IDE. I've read about many problems in this area so before I take on the challenge I need to know if it's feasible and achieveable for my project.
    Thanking You,
    Schkan

    Have a look at Android Developers (especially the "Developers" tab) You can download the SDK and there are tutorials, guides, javadocs: the usual suspects.

    As far as getting your program to run on your phone, it's as "easy" as plugging the phone into your computer and hitting "run" in Eclipse. Of course existing code won't be suitable for the platform, but it is a starting point.

    Barbara Hecker has various sets of videos available on Youtube and at least one series deals with installation of the Android SDK/Eclipse and emulators and is uptodate. I wouldn't ordinarily try and learn a technology from videos, but these are comprehensive, accurate and evidently the product of some thought.

    Download astro filemanager onto the tablet if you can access the internal memory copy the .apk file somewhere you can locate it easily. I have a folder off of root called TESTAPK so I can find them. Navigate to the apk from astro and touch it - install your app and enjoy.

    You can run java apps in android, but you need to convert them in apk. Android doesn't provide full java functionality.

    I agree with "bparker" for running java application on Android, first you need to convert them into apk.
