We demonstrate the steps of building an Android/Linux application commencing with a description of the environment and the required tool chain. After an obligatory Hello World-caliber application, we construct a more sophisticated application that implements a daytime server. Ultimately any application built for Android/Linux needs to bring value to the user in some form. In an effort to meet this objective, it is desirable that Android/Java be able to interact in a meaningful manner with our Android/Linux application. To that end we will build a traditional Android application using Java in Eclipse to interact with the Android/Linux server application.

Let's get started with an examination of the requirements of building our first C application for Android.
