Android NDK: Beginner's Guide (Sylvain Ratabouil)

With the help of Android NDK, you can inject fast, portable code into your mobile applications and take full use of the speed of the hardware that runs them.

This book will demonstrate how to develop Java-integrated mobile applications that support C/C++. The first chapter of the book teaches you how to use the native API and port libraries found in some of the most popular Android apps. The creation of a truly native application project will come next, which will involve porting already-existing third-party libraries and fully implementing a native API. You will eventually learn how to read accelerometers or orientation sensors as well as access the keyboard and input devices. Finally, you'll go into more complex subjects like RenderScript.

Do you need greater performance as an Android Java programmer? Are you a C/C++ developer who prefers to avoid dealing with Java's complexity and chaotic garbage collector? Do you wish to develop games or quick, resource-intensive multimedia applications? This book is for you if you said "yes" to any of these inquiries. With some general knowledge of C/C++ development, you will be able to dive headfirst into native Android development.

  • Create high-performance mobile applications with C/C++ and integrate with Java
  • Exploit advanced Android features such as graphics, sound, input, and sensing
  • Port and reuse your own or third-party libraries from the prolific C/C++ ecosystem
