In later chapters of this book, I will give you an introduction to developing Android applications without the use of an IDE—or "in the command-line interface (CLI)." While I will not cover every example in the book using this technique, you will get the basics of how to develop in the CLI.

If you are more comfortable with one Java IDE over any other, such as JBuilder by Borland or the open source NetBeans, feel free to use it. With a moderate level of experience, you should still be able to follow along with the majority of the examples in this book. However, the Open Handset Alliance and Google do endorse one Java IDE over any others: Eclipse.
