<title>Configuring your development environment for native development</title>
<shortdesc>After installing the Android NDK and a few other needed components, Eclipse can be configured to let you
develop Android applications that include native (C/C++) code.</shortdesc>
<prereq>Native support requires that the following be installed:<ul>
<li>The Eclipse CDT plugin (version 7 or later)</li>
<li>The Sequoyah Android feature</li>
<li>Android NDK</li>
<li>Cygwin (only on systems running Microsoft Windows)</li>
<li>The Java JDK (the JRE is not sufficient; you need the full JDK)</li>
</ul><p>Your development computer's system path (not the Eclipse path) should include the directory containing the
Android NDK, and, on Microsoft Windows, the directory containing the Cygwin binaries.</p><p>For instructions on
locating and installing the above components, and on setting your computer's system path, see the <i>MOTODEV
Studio for Android Installation Guide</i>.</p></prereq>
<cmd>Specify the location of the NDK from within your development environment: navigate to the <menucascade
><uicontrol>Android</uicontrol><uicontrol>Android NDK</uicontrol></menucascade> preferences page and
specify the path to the directory containing the NDK using the <uicontrol>NDK Location</uicontrol>
<postreq>Now that you have configured your development environment to enable native development, enable it in those
Android projects that have (or will have) native code.</postreq>
