Android SDK (ADT) on Eclipse (Android Development Tools)

Postby plusminus » Thu Nov 15, 2007 4:29 pm

Hi there,

I grabbed some information from Google for you, about installing the Android SDK for Eclipse.
  • After downloading the SDK, unpack the .zip archive to a suitable location on your machine.
  • Install a custom plugin called Android Development Tools (ADT), which adds integrated support for Android projects and tools. The ADT plugin includes a variety of powerful extensions that make creating, running, and debugging Android applications faster and easier.
  • To download and install the ADT plugin, set up an Eclipse remote update site as described in the steps below.
Android Development Tools wrote:Installing the Eclipse Plugin (ADT)
  1. Start Eclipse, then select Help > Software Updates > Find and Install....
  2. In the dialog that appears, select Search for new features to install and press Next.
  3. Press New Remote Site.
  4. In the resulting dialog box, enter a name for the remote site (e.g. Android Plugin) and enter this as its URL: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/. Press OK.
  5. You should now see the new site added to the search list (and checked). Press Finish.
  6. In the subsequent Search Results dialog box, select the checkbox for Android Plugin > Eclipse Integration > Android Development Tools and press Next.
  7. Read the license agreement and then select Accept terms of the license agreement, if appropriate. Press Next.
  8. Press Finish.
  9. The ADT plugin is not signed; you can accept the installation anyway by pressing Install All.
  10. Restart Eclipse.
  11. After restart, update your Eclipse preferences to point to the SDK root directory ($SDK_ROOT):
    1. Select Window > Preferences... to open the Preferences panel. (Mac OS X: Eclipse > Preferences)
    2. Select Android from the left panel.
    3. For the SDK Location in the main panel, press Browse... and find the SDK root directory.
    4. Press Apply, then OK
Updating the ADT Plugin
  1. Select Help > Software Updates > Find and Install....
  2. Select Search for updates of the currently installed features and press Finish.
  3. If any update for ADT is available, select and install.
Alternatively,
  1. Select Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration.
  2. Navigate down the tree and select Android Development Tools <version>
  3. Select Scan for Updates under Available Tasks.

broken link to ADT Eclipse plugin?

Postby phubenig » Wed Oct 08, 2008 12:11 am

Hi -

I am a new Android developer. I would like to use Eclipse. However, when I attempt to install the Android ADT plugin with the link provided at the google site:

https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/

the URL does not resolve; neither in Eclipse nor in a browser. Is there a new link for the ADT plugin now? Or is Google just experiencing some kind of problem with their ADT plugin download area?

(I have a colleague who installed the ADT plugin about a week ago with absolutely no problem.)

Many thanks!

Paul

I just checked my Eclipse-Plugins and it also shows: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/

ADT Install page ( http://code.google.com/android/intro/installing.html ) also shows that url.

Yes, I know. That's where I obtained the information. However, it is not resolving for me. Have you tried typing the URL into a browser lately?

Google

The requested URL /android/eclipse/ was not found on this server.

Also getting an error saying "This repository is currently not available."
For whatever reason, that link appears broken.

Is there an alternate location for sourcing/installing ADT for eclipse?

Figured out what I was doing wrong.

For those who haven't downloaded the Android SDK recently, Google is now combining everything you need to get started all in one convenient package. If you go here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html, you'll see the Android SDK ADT Bundle. I'm really glad that folks at Google took the time to do this as it makes it easier for everyone in the community to get started :).
