It is only for the college students but I requested and I got a chance to learn the android programming! I enjoyed very much. They've teached me four programs but here I am only teaching you one. Other three are advanced and I am going to describe that three programs in my next ibles. Okay, enough talk, let's make it.

2.You need ADT (Android Development Toolkit) in which we code, it is made up of eclipse. Link: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Now after installing open Eclipse(ADT). It will ask you to make a workspace. Give it a desired name then you will see the eclipse window. Workspace is a project bundle in which our projects are saved. Now go to NEW-Android Application Project. As you see in the first image it will ask you to enter Application name. Enter the name of project as "button" because our first project is Button. After typing, click finish and you will get the window like in the second image.

Thank you very much for seeing my instructable.
When I open eclipse it tells me that the "javaw.exe is not in my current PATH" how do I fix this.

First check that you have the latest JDK. If you have the JDK then - Go to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_02\bin (This is the default path)
. Copy this path and go to system settings from control panel. Click on Advanced System Settings -> then go to environment variables -> Click on new and in the field variable name type path and then paste that path you have copied in the variable value with semi colon in last like this C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_02\bin; and Click OK. Hope this works for you.
