This chapter showed you how to add, build, run, and debug Android projects using Eclipse. You started by testing your development environment using a sample application from the Android SDK and then you created a new Android application from scratch using Eclipse. You also learned how to make some quick modifications to the application, demonstrating some exciting Android features you learn about in future chapters.

In the next few chapters, you learn about the tools available for use developing Android applications and then focus on the finer points about defining your Android application using the application manifest file and how the application lifecycle works. You also learn how to organize your application resources, such as images and strings, for use within your application.
