Code:

Hi,

so it seems you have not installed the android sdk. I notice that you say you installed JDK: JDK normally means "Java Developer Kit" which is among other things is one of the dependencies of the Android sdk (IIRC), but should not be confused with it. See, for example https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Yes, I have already downloaded the 64 bit version. But cannot find an executable to run the installation. These are some of the contents of the SDK folder

Code:
sdk$ ls -la

drwxr-x--- 7 siawacsh siawacsh 4096 2012-11-13 01:26 .
drwxr-x--- 4 siawacsh siawacsh 4096 2012-11-13 01:24 ..
drwxr-x--- 3 siawacsh siawacsh 4096 2012-11-13 01:26 extras
drwxr-x--- 3 siawacsh siawacsh 4096 2012-11-13 01:25 platforms

Hi,

did you read (and follow) any documentation? Eg https://developer.android.com/tools/workflow/index.html ?

Hello, please understand that I am not an engineer or good knowing where to look. All I am trying to do on my spare time is to build a website that can display on android phones.

Before posting on LQ I had already checked out Android.com . I found it very counter intuitive without an end or begining. I spent good amount of time looking for specific installation instructions but to no avail. It just seems to go on and on about architecture.

Compare that to the apache XAMPP site. You will notice a huge difference in the specifics of HOW TO instructions

Code:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html#377
You seem to be experienced enough to know the installation and deployment step by step instructions. And I am sure your reply was intended to help me. If so, I would be most grateful if you could post here the installation steps.


Thanks
