Software and Hardware System Requirements

To develop Android apps you need a Windows®, Linux or Mac OS X system. To view the latest operating-system requirements visit:

We developed the apps in this book using the following software:

• Java SE 6 Software Development Kit

• Eclipse 3.6.2 (Helios) IDE for Java Developers

• Android SDK versions 2.2, 2.3.3 and 3.x

• ADT (Android Development Tools) Plugin for Eclipse

We tell you where to get each of these in the next section.
