How to make an .apk file using Eclipse for an Application?

Postby ramsarvan » Fri Dec 12, 2008 2:08 pm

Hi All,

When I use the activitycreator.py (python script) for creating an application,
it creates the facility for making the package file (.apk) using ant. But when
I create an application in Eclipse, it does not create the xml file needed for
creating the .apk file. How to configure Eclipse for making an .apk file
for an application?

Thanks,
Ram

Thanks buddy.
I was looking for a build.xml and did not see in
the bin folder. I am a newbie to Android.
So dont mind.

i meant your apk file going to be there.

it has nothing to do with android. If you're building your projects by ant - then you need to create a build file ( instruction for android i :wink: believe on Google site ). If you're building project using just eclipse your apk will be in bin. If you need it on the device - export unsigned . Everything is described very well in documentation. You HAVE to read it at least once.
http://code.google.com/android/intro/de ... debug.html .
New or not new to android - read docs first it'll help in the long run,
