The Eclipse ADT Bundle provides everything you need to start developing apps, including the Android SDK tools and a version of the Eclipse IDE with built-in ADT (Android Developer Tools) to streamline your Android app development.
To set up the ADT Bundle:
- Unpack the ZIP file (named
adt-bundle-<os_platform>.zip) and save it to an appropriate location, such as a "Development" directory in your home directory.
- Open the
adt-bundle-<os_platform>/eclipse/directory and launch Eclipse.
Eclipse with ADT is now ready and loaded with the Android developer tools, but there are still a couple packages you should add to make your Android SDK complete.
