1. Getting Started with Android

1. Getting Started with Android

The first step when building an Android application is installing the tools and the SDK. If you’ve already built an Android application, congratulations are in order! You can skip this chapter and move on to the fundamentals. For those of you who haven’t, you’ll get through this busy work before you can say “Open Handset Alliance” three times quickly.

In this chapter, you’ll move quickly through the platform configuration. I’ll show you how to download developer files from Google and the Eclipse project; install and configure the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) and Eclipse; create and configure a shiny new Android emulator; start a new Android project; and run your Android project on your shiny new Android emulator.
