Android ADT


 Android Development Tools (ADT)

ADT extends the capabilities of Eclipse to let you quickly set up new Android projects, create an application UI, add components based on the Android Framework API


1. Java JDK 6

2. Use Eclipse 3.5+ (Galileo) or (Pulsar)* preferred.

3. SDK Platform – Android 2.2

4. Eclipse Plug-in – ADT 0.9.7

Prerequisite can change according the update perform on Development machine so the option can be of latest version.
I personally recommend eclipse pulsar version because it is a dedicated IDE version for mobile development.
If you are developing for mobile which are supporting older version only you can get those API too.

Run Android setup..

  1. In the Available Software dialog, click Add….
  2. Add    



If you have trouble acquiring the plug-in, you can try using "http" in the URL, instead of "https"
