The starting point is that we have a Windows 7 computer with or without Java already installed.
Step One: Install Java unless it has already been installed
If we don't already have Java installed, we will begin by installing 64 bit Java: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk7-downloads-1880260.html. We will use the install defaults.
If we already have Java installed, Eclipse should pick that up automatically. So then we wouldn't have to install Java a second time.
Step Two: Install Eclipse
With the JDK installed, we will then install the Eclipse Kepler edition 64 bits
Eclipse should pick up the location of your JDK during the installation.
Step Three: Install the IBM Worklight Developer Edition Eclipse Plugin
From within Eclipse, we will now Install the IBM Worklight Developer Edition
Eclipse->Help-> Eclipse Marketplace
Step Four: Install the Android Developer Tools plugin for Eclipse.
After we have installed the IBM Worklight Developer edition plugin for eclipse, we need to install the Android Developer Tools plugin for Eclipse.
In Eclipse, we select Help->Install New Software and then enter the information in the dialog box below:
Two groups will appear: Developer Tools and NDK Plugins.
Click on Next and Finish.
After the ADT plug-in installation is complete and Eclipse restarted, click Window > Android SDK Manager
Important: If the Android SDK Manager / AVD Manager is not visible in the Window menu,
- click Window -> Customize Perspective -> Command Groups Availability,
- and select the Android SDK and AVD Manager checkbox.
After having done that, you can click on the Java Tab over at the right of the screen, and then see the two highlighted icons show up.
The down arrow brings up the Android SDK manager and the Green Icon to the right of it brings up the Android Virtual Device Manager
You are now able to start working with the Android SDK manager and the Android Virtual Device Manager.
You are now ready to start running some of the Worklight Sample Apps
You are then ready to start writing your first apps. The best way to get started is to import existing apps from this URL.
in Eclipse, simple click on File->Import->General->Existing Projects into Workspace.
