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. Continue reading

In part 1 of this series we discussed how to integrate the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android with Android Studio. The post stepped through the process of manually setting up a single project in Android Studio. Today, the ArcGIS Android developer team is proud to announce an Early Access Preview (EAP) release of ArcGIS Android Gradle samples. The samples are open source and can be forked from Github. Android Studio development environment is now in Beta and will be the official Android IDE once it’s ready. We encourage you to collaborate with us working with the new Gradle based Android project structure. Be aware that this is an EAP and if you are not comfortable using an unfinished product, you may want to use ArcGIS Android Samples in the Eclipse Plugin bundled with the ArcGIS Android SDK.

They set up data, made a map, and took Collector to the field. I had a chance to chat with Josh and his dad, and hear about the project directly from the 10-year-old. Continue reading
