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

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

About: System Developer. Microcontroller. Programmer. Blogger. Network Engineer. Resource Speaker. Instructor.

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.

Please do follow my account for more Instructables :)

Take note: The activity will depend on the API level you declared on configuring the project.

Possibly you will experience incompatibility regarding the target.

    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.
