h1. Build the Android Development Tools for Eclipse (ADT) with Replicant 4.2 h2. Principle of operation The [[ReplicantSourceCode|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":http://android-developers.blogspot.fr/2015/06/an-update-on-eclipse-android-developer.html in favor of Android Studio, based on IntelliJ. h2. 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. To recreate it easily with LXC, follow: * [[BuildEnvironments#Trisquel-41-Taranis-based-on-Ubuntu-1004-Lucid-with-LXC|Trisquel 4.1 Taranis (based on Ubuntu 10.04) with LXC]] * [[BuildEnvironments#Non-privileged-user-setup|Non-privileged user setup]] h2. Build dependencies <pre> # Based on https://web.archive.org/web/20121201011547/http://source.android.com/source/initializing.html # git recompiled manually, mingw32 dropped apt-get install gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential \ zip curl zlib1g-dev libc6-dev lib32ncurses5-dev ia32-libs \ x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev lib32readline5-dev lib32z-dev \ libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib python-markdown \ libxml2-utils xsltproc apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk libasm-java </pre> h2. Preparing the sources Based on [[ReplicantSourceCode]] with additional configuration. Login as user @replicant@ and: <pre> mkdir ~/tools/ cd ~/tools/ wget http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo chmod a+x repo cd ~ # Avoid prompts git config --global user.email "email@example.com" git config --global user.name "Your Name" git config --global color.ui true mkdir replicant-4.2/ cd replicant-4.2/ ../tools/repo init -u git://git.replicant.us/manifest.git -b replicant-4.2 ../tools/repo sync -j4 # > 1h, 27GB (inc. 17GB .repo) </pre> h2. Building ADT 21 <pre> . build/envsetup.sh cd sdk/eclipse/ # Complies with setup_eclipse.sh and fix download URL sudo mkdir -p /buildbot/eclipse-android sudo chown replicant /buildbot/eclipse-android sed -i -e '/eclipse-rcp-helios-SR2/ s/download.eclipse.org/archive.eclipse.org/' \ scripts/setup_eclipse.sh # Note: I tried with 'apt-get install eclipse-rcp eclipse-pde' and ECLIPSE_HOME=/usr/lib/eclipse # but it lacks org.eclipse.wst.* plugins aka eclipse-wtp-xmltools mkdir ~/adt/ scripts/build_server.sh ~/adt # 15mn with 4 cores, 32GB (inc. 17GB .repo) </pre> The ADK release is in @~/adt/android-eclipse-v201507252158.zip@ :) h2. Testing See the nice Eclipse tutorial at [[SDK#Usage-guides]]. h2. TODOs * warning on installation, maybe we can sign the package: <pre> 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? </pre> * Note: partial incompatibility error in Eclipse 3.8.1, 3.8.1 in the layout edition view. Needs testing with an older Eclipse: <pre> This version of the rendering library is more recent than your version of ADT plug-in. Please update ADT plug-in </pre> 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?
