OK. So I've used Eclipse Indigo to create my first non-trivial Android app. Now I want to create version 2 of my App, starting with my original version. I'm a single user using a folder as a workspace, I don't have CVS or anything like that. So, from a best practices point of view, what is the best way to create version 2 of my app, using version 1 as a starting point? I.e. I don't just want to start making changes to the original, I want to make changes to a copy of the original.

Thanks,

Russ

There are a number of options; here's the simplest one to explain.

Clone (copy) the original project's subdirectory in the filesystem, then
use Eclipse's new project wizard to create a new project using the
source code from that copied subdirectory. This option, to get the
source code from somewhere else instead of creating a new subdirectory
in the workspace, is the very next thing in most or all new project
wizard dialogs after naming the new project.

Best of luck,

Russ
