<title>New Android Project wizard</title>
<shortdesc>Creates a MOTODEV Studio for Android project.</shortdesc>
<section>The newly created project can be a basic one, or can be pre-populated from an SDK sample or from an
existing Android project.<simpletable>
<stentry><uicontrol>Project name</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>A name for the newly created Eclipse project. Note that MOTODEV Studio will create a folder for your
project using this name; therefore, the name you supply must follow the rules for filenames on your host
operating system.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Create new project</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>Creates a basic "Hello World"-style project.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Create new project using sample</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>Creates a project based upon one of the samples included with the Android SDK. You will be asked to
specify the base sample in the wizard's next dialog.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Create project from existing source</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>Opens an existing project in place, without copying it to your workspace.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Use default location</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>Indicates whether projects should be created in the current workspace. To specify a different
location, clear this option and then use the <uicontrol>Location</uicontrol> field to specify the folder in
which the project is to be created.</stentry>
<stentry>Specifies the folder in which projects are created. By default projects are created in the current
workspace. Clear the <uicontrol>Use default location</uicontrol> option to specify a different
<stentry>Specifies the Android platform against which the application is to be built. Note that you cannot
specify a target when creating a project from existing source.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Application name</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>The name of your application as it will appear to the user on the Android device. Note that if you
are creating a project based on a sample or on existing source, you cannot change this field. </stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Package name</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>The full Java package name for your application. Note that this needs to be a unique identifier; use
standard domain-style naming.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Activity name</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>The name for the application's main activity. This is the name for the class stub that will be
generated by the plugin.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Min SDK version</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>A value that corresponds to the minimum required API level. This value determines whether or not your
application will run on a given Android device: if the <uicontrol>Min SDK version</uicontrol> is greater
than the level supported by the device, the application will not run on that device. This field is
automatically set when you specify a <uicontrol>Target</uicontrol>, but can be overridden.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Add native support</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>If this project will have native components and you will be using MOTODEV Studio for Android to
manage and build those components (along with the non-native components, such as Java source files and xml
layout files), select this option. Note that in order to work with native code within MOTODEV Studio for
Android you must have the Android NDK properly installed and configured. Also note that you can add native
support to an existing Android project; you needn't add it when you first create the project.</stentry>
<stentry><uicontrol>Obfuscate Java classes</uicontrol></stentry>
<stentry>Enables (if selected) or disables obfuscation of the Java classes in the new Android project whenever
you build it for release.</stentry>
