    Default How to use Android in (Eclipse || NetBeans)

    Hi pals!

    I have decided to work on Android programming but don't know how to start!

    Could you answer my Android-related question(s)?
    I've downloaded "android-sdk_r11-windows" but I don't know how to install it either on Eclipse or NetBeans?
    In addition, I've downloaded "nbandroid-1.7" but have faced the same problem!
    Falling in LUV is awfully simple, but falling out of LUV is simply awful

    First download android sdk from google search for eclipse.

    Install it as a normal software using setup file.

    Then in eclipse, go to tools > Preferences . There you can find android plugin. Install it and also install android virtual device (AVD) from the preferences.

    Now you are ready to create android application in eclipse.

    Hello benglish,

    You can try reading this one:

    Installing the SDK | Android Developers

    That is my guide when I started how to setup Android and Eclipse. I am so happy it's 100% working now, i.e. both Android and Eclipse are "communicating" very well (just trying to do very basic programming though). And what's so cool about this is that I'm using the same Eclipse version for my J2ME projects, so I am using one Eclipse version for both projects.

    I don't know if there is a plugin of Android for the Netbeans IDE. I also want my NetBeans to recognize Android projects, but unfortunately, I can't find one on the Web. (Any tips anyone? Thanks). I hope the link will help.

    Thank you and good luck to your Android development.

    God bless everyone.

    Warm regards,

    Mark Squall
