Testing on emulator

  1. Install the Android image with specific version.
  2. Create a virtual device.

Eclipse android buttons

When SDK installed in Eclipse, you will find these two buttons on the tool bar.

Android version dialog

The first thing to do is install the API version we want. Android 4.1 (API 16) / 4.2 (API 17) would be a good choice to get started.

Setup avd

Once we have the Android image installed, we can create virtual device with target Android version.

Android emulator bootup

After created the virtual device, we can boot the Androud in the emulator.

What’s next? We’re going to take a look at “Creating Android PhoneGap project”.
