Building Your Project

One of the NDK's core purposes is allowing you to build C and C++ source code into shared libraries that you can use in your app.

This section explains how to build native binaries for use in your Android app. It begins by explaining the file, which defines properties specific to individual modules, or libraries. Then, it explains the file, which defines properties for all the modules that you use in your app. Next, it tells you how to use the ndk-build script, which is what the NDK uses to build your sources. Last, it ventures into advanced territory, discussing how to incorporate the NDK into your own toolchain, if you prefer to build that way instead of using ndk-build.
