Installing Eclipse for Android Development

I’ve set up Eclipse using theĀ  Java Enterprise Edition(Java EE) with Java Development Kit 1.6 (JDK6 – I’m glad it is not just me losing track of what version is what) in order to play around with Live Wallpaper and native Android applications. The installation process was a breeze compared with my previous experience with the IDE.

Configuring it to use the Android Developer Tools (ADT) plug-in was also very quick and easy. The developer guide is really clear and easy to follow – nice work!

I’ve run through the samples and got some Paint on the Canvas, but I miss Flash’s smooth vector shapes :( Next stop vector graphics…

But before that, I’ve installed the color theme, picked a nice dark theme (“inkpot”) and turned off the bold text.
