    After spending 3 days finally I run this project in eclipse.

    I am sharing the steps as it may help others:

    Firstly, the most important thing is that Your project path and ndk path should not contain spaces else you will have problems following these steps. I also faced problems with it so please remove the spaces, if any.

    For example :-

    replace it with


    Following are steps :-

    1) Install NDK from Android NDK page
    (I used Ubuntu OS)

    2) Install plugins for NDK ( )

    3) Open your terminal and go to your project directory path

    For Example :- /yourprojectname$

    4) Now from your project directory path write Your Android NDk path

    For Example :-


    And Press Enter. This will give you a .so file which means the library file has been generated..

    You have done it successfully. If you are getting error(s) here then the installation and the other steps might be having error(s).
