Command line lovers, vi fanatics, please go to the next chapter or you may feel sick! For most humans, having a comfortable and visual-friendly IDE is essential. And hopefully, Android works with the greatest of all: Eclipse!
Eclipse is the only officially supported IDE for Android SDK through the Google official plugin named ADT. But ADT is only for Java. Hopefully, Eclipse supports C/C++ as well through CDT, a general C/C++ plugin. Although not specific to Android, it works well with the NDK. The version of Eclipse used throughout this book is Helios (3.6).
