2. Your Android Development Environment

Android developers write and test applications on their computers and then deploy those applications onto the actual device hardware for further testing.

In this chapter, you will install and configure all the appropriate tools you need to start developing Android applications. We’ll also explore the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) installation and all it has to offer.

Configuring Your Development Environment

To write Android applications, you must configure your programming environment for Java development. The Java Development Kit (JDK), the Eclipse development environment, and the Android SDK are available for download on the Web at no cost.
