How to implement the action bar in api levels less than 11?
I recently read about the action bar implementation in android in the dev site.But i found that it requires a minimum api level of 11.Can someone tell me whether it is possible to implement action bar in Api levels less than 11 such as 8 or 9.If yes how can i do this?

ActionBarSherlock at http://actionbarsherlock.com is an Android library for implementing the action bar design pattern using the native ActionBar on 3.0+ and a third-party library on pre-3.0.
There is now also ActionBarCompat – part of the Android Support Library: http://android-developers.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/actionbarcompat-and-io-2013-app-source.html
There are third-party implementations of the action bar available. See this library project at github: android-actionbar. The manifest says the minimum API level is 3, target API is 8.
If you are looking for a simplistic Actionbar solution you might want to give a look to ActionBarCompat from the Google Official examples
