Introduction

Follow the tasks in this section to install the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Android and create your first Android mobile app.

The SDK software includes an Android Studio plugin with an easy-to-use wizard for generating your app. Launch the Wizard from Android Studio and follow the prompts.

To use the Wizard, you'll need an SAP Cloud Platform account. If you don't have an account, you can sign up for a free trial account at https://cloudplatform.sap.com/index.html. The trial account allows you to create five (5) sample apps.

When you install the SDK, the installation script copies the SDK libraries to the local Maven repository. If required, you can specify a different Maven repository for the Wizard from the Android Studio Settings menu.

If you choose not to use the Wizard, you can create a new Android Studio project and configure it to use the SDK.

Once you have generated your app, you can continue to configure it through the SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services cockpit if required. For more information, refer to the SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services documentation.
