The State of Eclipse with ArcGIS Android v10.2.5

The recent release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android v10.2.5 is intended to be used with Android Studio as the official IDE for Android development using the Gradle-based build system. The 10.2.5 release of the Android SDK is mostly for users who want to use the official Android Development IDE.  There were only minor changes to the API with 10.2.5, please refer to the release notes to see if they affect your ArcGIS Android app workflows.  If you have been using Eclipse with ADT and the ArcGIS Android Eclipse plugin, be aware that Android Studio is the official IDE for Android, so you should migrate to Android Studio as soon as you can.  For help moving projects see our Migrating to Android Studio post.  If migrating to Android Studio is not an option in the short term, you can continue to use the ArcGIS Android Eclipse plugin with ArcGIS Android 10.2.4, but we advise that you begin to think about a migration strategy as we will not be supporting the Eclipse plugin with 10.2.5 or later versions of the SDK.  We will continue to support alternative IDE’s, e.g. Eclipse & IntelliJ IDEA, through manual project setup.

Migrating to Android Studio

Android Studio is the official IDE for Android and is the default IDE for ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android.  This post will guide you through migrating your ArcGIS Android projects from Eclipse to Android Studio.

Import Eclipse project to Android Studio

Importing your Eclipse projects directly into Android Studio is the preferred approach as it will detect many source libs and replace them with maven dependencies, e.g. Android Support Library, which means you no longer have to maintain the libraries manually.  Additionally, it will rewrite the project using the new canonical Android Gradle project structure.
