I am planning to learn developing Android application. I have few applications in mind but I have to first learn about the technology. I will be using my windows 8 PC with intel core i5 processor & 8 GB RAM.

Starting point
FIrstly I have downloaded Android SDK from

( Please note all URLs are valid at the point of writing this blog. You can search in google for the keyword related to URL to get right one )

I downloaded file about 405 MB.

This bundle has
Eclipse + ADT plugin
Android SDK Tools
Android Platform-tools
The latest Android platform
The latest Android system image for the emulator

As per instruction I tried to run eclipse from zip file
\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20130219\eclipse\eclipse.exe  & it failed to run . Because I do not have Java installed. I am also not sure whether to install JDK or JRE.

I learned from a site “The "JDK" is the Java Development Kit. I.e., the JDK is bundle of software that you can use to develop Java based software. The "JRE" is the Java Runtime Environment. I.e., the JRE is an implementation of the Java Virtual Machine which actually executes Java programs.”

After installing JDK , my development environment is ready to fly . I have to just run \adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20130219\eclipse\eclipse.exe

My first source of information for learning android is trainings on
Starting with “Building Your First App”
