    Do you use Eclipse ADT Bundle, I mean – before Android Studio 1.0 was released there was ADT Bundle – Eclipse with additional Android tools.

    Well I see, it’s still available to download:

    If you use it, please delete it and download clean Eclipse from this site:

    If you’re planning to develop also in the other languages than Android accomodated Java, please free to download for example:
    Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers

    I had used Eclipse for EclipseEclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers 4.5.1` and ‘Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers’, so I’m sure these are higly compatible with newet ADT Plugin.

    After you install Eclipse, you need to download and unpack Stand-alone SDK Tools, where you would find [here]

    Note: Already the latest version of Android SDK is android-sdk_r24.4.1.

    After downloading and unpack Eclipse and Android SDK read this documentation: or just follow these steps:

    To add the ADT plugin to Eclipse:

    1. Start Eclipse, then select Help > Install New Software.
    2. Click Add, in the top-right corner.
    3. In the Add Repository dialog that appears, enter
      ADT Plugin for the Name and the following URL for the Location:

    Note: The Android Developer
    Tools update site requires a secure connection. Make sure the update
    site URL you enter starts with HTTPS.

    1. Click OK.
    2. In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next
      to Developer Tools and click Next.
    3. In the next window, you’ll see a list of the tools to be downloaded.
    4. Click Next.
    5. Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish.
      If you get a security warning saying that the authenticity or validity of the software can’t be established, click OK.
      When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.

    Configure the ADT Plugin

    Once Eclipse restarts, you must specify the
    of your Android SDK directory:

    1. In the “Welcome to Android Development” window that appears, select Use existing SDKs.
    2. Browse and select the location of the Android SDK directory you recently downloaded and unpacked.
    3. Click Next.
    4. Your Eclipse IDE is now set up to develop Android apps, but you need to add the latest SDK platform tools and an Android platform to your
    5. To get these packages for your SDK, continue to Adding
      Platforms and Packages.

    You can also get an updated version of the ADT plugin that adds support for the latest NDK and fixes some bugs related to native C/C++ debugging at:

    In July 2017, Eclipse Oxygen is out and ADT is weakly supported (or unsupported). But it’s still often necessary to get these working together properly (reasons vary). Here are instruction to bring up an Eclipse Oxygen (latest at the time of writing) with the ADT on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 (latest LTS at time).

    1. I started from a clean install of Ubuntu
    2. Install OpenJDK 8
      sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
    3. I needed OpenJDK 7 for my project (skip if not needed)

      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openjdk-r/ppa
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
    4. Download Eclipse Oxygen (I chose the Java bundle) and install.
    5. Run Eclipse and close the welcome screen, get to the place where there is a blank workspase
    6. In your browser, go the Eclipse Marketplace where the ADT is provided. At the time of writing, it was here.
    7. Drag the “Install” button from the web page to the workstation pane in the running Eclipse (size your windows so that you can see both). The cursor will have a plus sign when dragged over the correct place. Then “drop”/release the icon. The install should proceed from there.
    8. Eclipse will ask to restart, do so.
    9. No Android SDK will be found, follow the prompts to get one setup.
    10. The SDK Build Tools may be out of date, causing an error, but ADT will prompt to install the latest, follow the prompts.
    11. I had an ADB error in the log window until I finished setting up the SDK and tool and then restarted Eclipse.

    Hope this helps.
