- How do i properly import projects from eclipse?
the projects were made with target API 19 and min sdk 8. I have followed all proper steps given by google and searched on Stackoverflow too. When I direct import, no matter what I do, (replace, not replace jar dependencies etc) the projects imported always have errors, like support library defines min sdk version L etc. When I don't, the app crashes. Can you tell me the exact proper procedure for import? the apps were up and running by Eclipse, no problem with them
- What is Gradle exaclty? What is Maven?
I know the answers are on wiki but they are too complex for a rookie coder. Can someone explain in simple language?
- How are support libraries handled in Android studios?
In eclipse you just copy over the .jar file and add it to build path. How do I manage support in Android Studio?
Image 1 : import with jar replacement, giving error.
image 2: import without jar replacement, looks fine. Though I haven't added the activity element of ActionTab.activity to AndroidManifest.xml
image 3: the imported project's ActionTab activity after I added its activity element to AndroidManifest.xml All hell breaks lose.
I have spent past 2 days trying to figure this thing out, but I got no luck.
Please help me if you have the answers. Images are attached with this post.
