2.3. Building an Android application in Eclipse

Eclipse provides a comprehensive environment for Android developers to create applications. In this section, we’ll demonstrate how to build a basic Android application, step by step. You’ll learn how to define a simple UI, provide code logic to support it, and create the deployment file used by all Android applications: AndroidManifest.xml. The goal in this section is to get a simple application under your belt. We’ll leave more complex applications for later chapters; our focus is on exercising the development tools and providing a concise yet complete reference.

Building an Android application isn’t much different from creating other types of Java applications in the Eclipse IDE. It all starts with choosing File > New and selecting an Android application as the build target.
