Native Android for Windows Developers

  1. 1. Native AndroidforWindows DevelopersYossi Cohen
  2. 2. INSTALLATIONSInstall Eclipse + CDTInstall SDKInstall ADTInstall USB DriverInstall NDKInstall Cygwin ….
  3. 3. Eclipse Installation• Download & Install Eclipse ▫ Select the classic version from ▫ CDT for C/C++ development is recommended  Select “Install New Software” from Eclipse’ Help menu  Select available software sites  Check CDT  Install CDT components
  4. 4. SDK Installation• Download & Install SDK (select windows option) ▫• Install the ADT (Android Developer Tools) for Eclipse ▫ Instructions: ▫ ▫ Press Add in available software menu ▫ Add ADT with the link below 4
  5. 5. USB Driver / NDK Installations• Install USB Driver ▫ If you don’t have a nexus phone download driver from vendor. Instructions:• Install NDK ▫• Preferably do all Installations in D:Android 5
  6. 6. Cygwin Installation• Goo to and download setup• Install Cygwin.• Select default install options• After installation, add the following Dirs to Cygwin Path: ▫ C:Androidandroid-sdktools ▫ C:Androidandroid-ndk-r7buildtools 6
  8. 8. Running a native sample app• In Eclipse, Select: ▫ File->New->Project->Android Project• Select “Create Project From Existing Source”• change the directory to the Installed NDK samples:• D:Androidandroid-ndk- r7samplesHello-Jni• Select target and finish
  9. 9. Compile & Run• Compile the Java application• Run it on your phone target• Crash?• Open Cygwin window• Compile the native code in: D:Androidandroid-ndk-r7samplesHello-Jni JNI using ndk-build command• Compile the Java application• Run it on your target 9
  10. 10. CODE REVIEW 10
  11. 11. Java Code Review• Java part of the application is simple:• On create, the application prints to the screen a string it receives from stringFromJNI() declared as a Native function• Native library hello-jni is loaded 11
  12. 12. Java to C calling convention/* sample method where the Java call passed no parameters */void Java_ClassName_MethodName (JNIEnv *env, jobject obj){/* do something */ }/* another sample method with two parameters passed, returninga double */jdouble Java_ClassName_MethodName ( JNIEnv* env, jobject obj, jdouble x, jdouble y){ return x + y; }• Note: Android Java identifies the native functions according to their C type signature. If the call is for CPP functions, the Java program will not recognize them. The solution to this problem is to use extern “C” { } around the CPP functions
  13. 13. Make Files• Android native applications must could have two make files: ▫ – details the source header and libraries used to create the application (library) ▫ – details the target platform, processor (ARM 7) and API level (API 10). The file is not mandatory
  14. 14. SampleExample, the HelloJNI NDK sample make FileLOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir)include $(CLEAR_VARS)LOCAL_MODULE := hello-jniLOCAL_SRC_FILES := hello-jni.cinclude $(BUILD_SHARED_LIBRARY)
  15. 15. Review• LOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir) ▫ first understand where we are since include paths are usually RELATIVE to our current location. This must be the first command in the mk file• CLEAR_VARS - clears special GNU Makefile LOCAL_XXX variables like LOCAL_SRC_FILES• LOCAL_MODULE := hello-jni The LOCAL_MODULE variable must be defined to identify each module you describe in your The name must be *unique* without spaces.
  16. 16. Review• The hello-jni sample does not include file.• can define the target platform as 9 (Android 2.2) APP_PLATFORM := android-9• Application file can also define the processor version:# Build both ARMv5TE and ARMv7-A machine code.APP_ABI := armeabi armeabi-v7a
