Overview of Android NDK (Native Development Toolkit).
Android application development is primarily done with the Android SDK.
Apps are written in Java thus benefitting from the high-level constructs
of the managed environment as well as the wealth of functionality provided
by the Android application platform.
However, sometimes it is necessary to implement certain functionality natively
in C++, e.g. when access to hardware is required or 3rd party stacks have to
be included that are only available as C++ code.
The NDK is a lightweight development toolkit for writing native applications
and libraries that can interwork with Java application code.
