Introduction: Part 1: Eclipse Mars 2 for Android Development (Start Up Project)

Picture of Part 1: Eclipse Mars 2 for Android Development (Start Up Project)

I could say, Eclipse is one of the best IDE that we could use in developing Android Application with direct output of an Android Application Package (.apk). One of the easiest way in developing using Hybrid Programming (Java and XML). We could also integrate directly the SDK and use system Image for emulation using Android Virtual Device Manager (AVD). It requires basic knowledge in programming, especially in Java and XML.

Indeed, mastering Eclipse for developing application will be fun.

You prefer Eclipse for Android programming over Android Studio? I'd be interested in knowing why.

I use eclipse for other stuff (for Android apps), but gave it up once Android Studio got stable enough.

Yeah, I've been using it for a long time. There are a lot of developments happened using Eclipse and still comfortable developing using this platform.
