  • 6. Demonstration time
  • 7. The magic of AIDE • Full Android Build Process • Java/Dalvik compilation on device • Native build on device (x86, arm)
  • 8. Android Build Process (1)
  • 9. Android Build Process (2)
  • 10. Focus: NDK support • Not intended to run directly on Android devices • Officially supports only ia32/ia64 on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X
  • 11. NDK support in AIDE • Based on NDK for Linux • Currently only the default toolchain GCC 4.6 is supported • Planned: Support more toolchains • Planned: Support x86 target on arm devices, arm target on x86 devices • Crazy idea: Support the Intel C/C++ compiler
  • 12. Technical challenge: GNU libc • Problem: - GCC toolchain requires GNU libc - Android only has limited bionic C library • Solution: Link GCC toolchain binaries statically against GNU libc
  • 13. Technical challenge: ARM architecture • Problem: NDK not supported on ARM • Solution: Cross-compile NDK for ARM on Linux x86
  • 14. Technical challenge: UNIX tools • Problem: Most NDK builds require a proper shell and UNIX tools (find, sed, awk, …) • Solution: - Bundle Busybox - Pass variables to GNU Make for a proper shell, dirname binary, …
  • 15. Giving back to the community • NDK is part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) under the Apache 2.0 licence. • Our modifications are on GitHub: • Cave: The build process is complex.
  • 16. Recap • Develop Android apps with your Android device • Work on your apps whether Java or native onthe-go • AIDE magic makes it happen
