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": 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 

 # Based on 
 # 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 

 h2. Preparing the sources 

 Based on [[ReplicantSourceCode]] with additional configuration. 
 Login as user @replicant@ and: 

 mkdir ~/tools/ 
 cd ~/tools/ 
 chmod a+x repo 
 cd ~ 

 # Avoid prompts 
 git config --global "" 
 git config --global "Your Name" 
 git config --global color.ui true 

 mkdir replicant-4.2/ 
 cd replicant-4.2/ 
 ../tools/repo init -u git:// -b replicant-4.2 
 ../tools/repo sync -j4  
 # > 1h, 27GB (inc. 17GB .repo) 

 h2. Building ADT 21 

 . build/ 
 cd sdk/eclipse/ 

 # Complies with and fix download URL 
 sudo mkdir -p /buildbot/eclipse-android 
 sudo chown replicant /buildbot/eclipse-android 
 sed -i -e '/eclipse-rcp-helios-SR2/ s/' \ 
 # 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/ ~/adt 
 # 15mn with 4 cores, 32GB (inc. 17GB .repo) 

 The ADK release is in @~/adt/ :) 

 h2. Testing 

 See the nice Eclipse tutorial at [[SDK#Usage-guides]]. 

 h2. TODOs 

 * 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 error in Eclipse 3.8.1, 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?
