Hi all,

Did my entry in the APK world Smile. Experimented with APK studio and Android Studio. Now I purchased a data set (source code) that I need to build as APK. From the file structure and naming I see this is a Eclipse project.

What I need to do is to change a URL in the variables, and second is to do some translation work. So my question is not about how to create an app from scratch.

I just can not seem to figure out the steps to take. On the one hand I have the complete data set, on the other I have Eclipse. But I would like some guidance in what to do now.

Do I create a new project? Can I import the project without to create a new project? Next will be to test the changes, and finally to create the apk.

I downloaded Eclipse IDE for Java Developers (Mars release 4.5.0) is that the correct one?

Baby steps ladies and gentlemen, let's take baby steps. The entire process of editing and compiling should not take longer then 30 minutes. Anyone that can guide me?

Many thanks in advance Smile

Not sure how much help anyone would be here as this is an Eclipse-only
forum. Translating an existing Eclipse project to another IDE would
really be the domain of the folk who support that IDE.

Mars is the current release of Eclipse.

I have experience moving projects from Eclipse to IntelliJ and
vice-versa. I just roll up my sleeves, import the sources into the
target IDE and start fixing what's broken.

If I were importing a Maven-based project into Eclipse, for example, I'd
use mvn eclipse:eclipse. Is your new source built using Maven? Maybe
there's something from the APK folk like mvn apk:apk?

You might wish to build the source in Eclipse, get it running,
understand its layout a little bit before making the move so you'll have
an idea as to what it should look like when it emerges on the other side.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for pointing that out for me. Does this mean there is a seperate forum for mobile aps?

In fact, there is no Eclipse forum for mobile applications. Eclipse
doesn't create ADT; ADT is third-party and created atop Eclipse. There
are sticky posts at forum's top which explain this. For Android support,
you refer to an Android forum, or stackoverflow.com, etc.

Best of luck!
