Google will end support for Android Developer Tools in Eclipse later this year


Google yesterday took to its Android Developers Blog to announce that it would be ending all development and support for the Android Developer Tools (ADT) in Eclipse. The search giant plans on focusing its efforts on its own IDE, Android Studio. “This specifically includes the Eclipse ADT plugin and Android Ant build system,” Google says.

While this is certainly hard news to hear, especially if Eclipse was your go-to platform for Android, Google has put together a handy guide to migrating your Android projects and source code from Eclipse into Android Studio 1.3. It’s an easy process, and should only take you a few minutes, if you’re making the jump.

Google will continue to support Eclipse until the end of the year. In the meantime, they’re hard at work migrating the rest of their standalone performance tools, such as DDMS and Trace Viewer, over to Android Studio in addition to building better support for the Android NDK in the IDE.
