Build the Android Development Tools for Eclipse (ADT) with Replicant 4.2¶
Principle of operation¶
The Android 4.2 source code ships a
sdk/eclipse/ directory with ADT build scripts.
The build script will also download Eclipse 3.6.2 files as build dependencies.
Note: as of 2015-07, ADT is deprecated in favor of Android Studio, based on IntelliJ.
Recreate matching build environment¶
Replicant 4.2 is based on CyanogenMod 10.1 which is based on AOSP 4.2.2, released 2013-02.
The build environment used by NDK release managers should be Ubuntu LTS 10.04.

Preparing the sources¶
Based on ReplicantSourceCode with additional configuration.

Building ADT 21¶

- warning on installation, maybe we can sign the package:
Warning: You are installing software that contains unsigned content. The authenticity or validity of this software cannot be established. Do you want to continue with the installation?
- Note: partial incompatibility in Eclipse 3.8.1, in the layout edition view. Needs testing with an older Eclipse:
This version of the rendering library is more recent than your version of ADT plug-in. Please update ADT plug-in
ADT 21 should work with 3.6.2 (used for compilation) and possibly with 3.7 (to be tested).
- Do we rely on prebuilt/prebuilts dirs?
