The Android SDK provides the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android. The SDK tools are installed with the SDK starter package and are periodically updated. The SDK tools are required if you are developing Android applications. The most important SDK tools include the Android SDK Manager (android sdk), the AVD Manager (android avd) the emulator (emulator), and the Dalvik Debug Monitor Server (ddms). A short summary of some frequently-used SDK tools is provided below.

Getting Started: 

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows XP (32-bit), Vista (32- or 64-bit), or Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit)
  • Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later (x86 only)
  • Linux (tested on Ubuntu Linux, Lucid Lynx)
    • GNU C Library (glibc) 2.7 or later is required.
    • On Ubuntu Linux, version 8.04 or later is required.
    • 64-bit distributions must be capable of running 32-bit applications. For information about how to add support for 32-bit applications, see the Ubuntu Linux installation notes.

Supported Development Environments

Eclipse IDE

  • Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) or greater

Note: Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) is no longer supported with the latest version of ADT.

Several types of Eclipse packages are available for each platform. For developing Android applications, we recommend that you install one of these packages:

  • Eclipse IDE for Java Developers
  • Eclipse Classic
  • Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers

Other development environments or IDEs

Note: If JDK is already installed on your development computer, please take a moment to make sure that it meets the version requirements listed above. In particular, note that some Linux distributions may include JDK 1.4 or Gnu Compiler for Java, both of which are not supported for Android development.

 

Hardware requirements

The Android SDK requires disk storage for all of the components that you choose to install. The table below provides a rough idea of the disk-space requirements to expect, based on the components that you plan to use.
