applications would usually mean that you spend all of your time working in Java. There are however times when this is not the most efficient or best method for the application being built. This is where Android
NDK comes in. Android
NDK allows the developer to write in Native C/C++, giving you the power to reuse code and libraries and also, in most cases, increase the speed and efficiency of your application.
Native Development Kit Cookbook will help you understand the development, building, and debugging of your native Android
applications. We will discover and learn JNI programming
and essential NDK APIs such as OpenGL
ES, and the native application API. We will then explore the process of porting existing libraries and software to NDK. By the end of this book you will be able to build your own apps in NDK apps.
