There is a page dedicated to the SDK but there is another page dedicated to lucky eclipse users saying how easy it is for them because there is a dedicated eclipse plugin here.
THE SDK IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PLUGIN!
So maybe this is suppose to be apparent to programmy people. The only reference I could find to it was in the requirements:
When you read this (which of course you wouldn't do because you never read the requirements) all makes sense.
- The latest version of the Amazon Mobile App SDK. Versions of the SDK that work with the Eclipse plugin include a
spec.yamlfile in the
toolsfolder of each of the APIs.
Make note of your SDK path, because you must provide it when installing the Eclipse plugin.
So for the lazy:
1.) Download the SDK and copy it to a location you are happy to call its install location.
2.) Follow these instructions for installing the plugin.
3.) Then in:
In Eclipse, on the Window menu (on a Mac, on the Eclipse menu), click Preferences, and then click Amazon Mobile App SDK.Reading this back it seems obvious but I did waste a day not realizing that the SDK wasn't included in the plugin so so might you.
In the SDK Location box, specify the path where you installed the Amazon Mobile App SDK, and then click OK.
