Development tools - Intro Eclipse Requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Like an advanced notepad/Gedit you used for C/C++ A general development tool for Java programming (not limited to android) Android SDK Contains the necessary tools to create, compile and package Android application ADT (Android Development Tools) A set of components (plug-ins) which extend the Eclipse IDE with Android development capabilities
Development tools - setup JRE Run and install the JRE software that came with your bundle What about Eclipse, ADT, Android SDK ? Lucky you are… Google now bundled everything and gives you as a package which can be used directly after JRE installation ! (You may not appreciate this, as you havent been through earlier setup process)
