Build, Install and Run Android Application

This section provides tutorial example on how to build, install and run an Android application. The Android application shows up automatically on the Android emulator.

Now I am ready to build, install and run the simple application on my Android emulator:

1. Run the Android emulator through the AVD Manager and wait for the emulator to be fully booted.

2. Build and install my application, AboutAndroid, using the Ant tool:

C:\>cd \herong\AboutAndroid
C:\herong\AboutAndroid>\local\apache-ant-1.9.5\bin\ant debug
...
C:\herong\AboutAndroid>\local\apache-ant-1.9.5\bin\ant installd
...

3. Go to the emulator and run "AboudAndroid" from the application list. The AboutAndroid start screen will show up:

AboutAndroid Start Screen
AboutAndroid Start Screen

Ok. My application is working!
