Go Up to Using a Custom Set of Java Libraries In Your Appmethod Android Apps


Using the Project Manager is the simplest approach to add your Java libraries to your application. This approach should work for most people. If you need to modify or remove built-in Appmethod Java libraries for Android, see Creating and Deploying a classes.dex File Manually.

To add a Java library file (.jar) to your Android application

  1. In the Project Manager, extend the Target Platforms node of your project. Within the Target Platforms node, extend the Android node.
  2. Right-click the Libraries node and select Add.
