Building and using ‘nbandroid’: Android support for NetBeans

by Amit



NetBeans plugins for Google Android are being developed at http://kenai.com/projects/nbandroid/

The best way to try it out is to build the module suite. Here is how, (using NetBeans 6.5):

Clone the Hg repository:

Parent directory and name of the clone

After the clone is over, NetBeans will ask you to open one of the projects just cloned. As you can see there are 4 NetBeans modules and 1 module suite- suite. Select suite and click OK.


The suite project opens for you:


Right-click on suite and click Run. This will start the build.

After the build finishes, a new NetBeans IDE instance starts up and you can get started with Android development with the following document here at http://wiki.netbeans.org/IntroAndroidDevNetBeans which has been updated for NetBeans IDE 6.5 and Android SDK 1.0.
