Installing the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Android

Extract the contents of the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Android software download file to a folder on your computer and run the installation script. The installation script copies the SDK libraries to the local Maven repository and installs the Android Studio plugin.

If you reset or lose your local maven repository, re-run the install script to ensure the SDK libraries are copied to your new local Maven repository.

If you need to uninstall the Wizard plugin, run the uninstall_wizard script in the same directory.

Requirements

You'll require Android Studio 3.x installed on your computer. Download Android Studio here.

Android Studio includes the latest Android SDK. We recommend you use the Android SDK Manager to keep the Android SDK up to date. Refer to your Android Studio documentation for details on using this tool.

Procedure

  1. Download the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for Android software from the Software Download page.
  2. Extract the contents of the downloaded zip file to a folder on your computer.
  3. Run the installation script at the root of the extracted zip. The script installs the Android Wizard plugin in Android Studio and copies the SDK libraries to your local Maven repository.

    Warning

    Do not delete or move the folder where you extracted the program files. SDK tools are installed in this directory and are accessed from this location.

  4. (Recommended) Set the SAP_ANDROID_HOME environment variable to point to your installation folder.
