Journey of Android Development -- First Emulator App

Still trying to get the feel for the development environment. Much of this is likely fully integrated with Eclipse, but Eclipse is historically a resource hog. 'sides, I more of a command line kinda guy.

I authored my very first application that entails multiple buttons and debug logging. The app simply creates three buttons, registers a click handler for each and demonstrates the ability to log to the adb logfile stream.

Feel free to download it here.

You may also find the Makefile useful, which supports:
1) setting up the environment (ie. starting AVD and logcat utility)
2) rebuilding the project
3) reinstalling and remotely starting the app on the emulator
4) cleanup

The project assumes you've greated an AVD called myAVD.
