Hello Author
A very simple question as to how to make your examples chapter 1. program get executed under jdk1.5.0_03 since there are
many things to take care after placing the java.prg from android first chapter as for example class path,lib,etc.In short how to easily
connect the program with its different folders of android in the most easy way for program execution.Even professional books on
extreme programming does not explain this .s ie how to place in my IDE in an easy & syncronising way (as is basis) to get the output
Thanks

As
CRMK

The appendixes of my book provide detailed directions on how to configure an environment for Android development on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux systems. They show how to install JDK 1.8, but I'm pretty sure JDK 1.5 would work fine too if there's some reason you don't want to install JDK 1.8.

In short, the steps are...

1. Download and install the source code for this book from murach.com
2. Download and install the Java SE JDK (we recommend 1.8, but you can use an older version if you want)
3. Download and install Android Studio
4. Start Android Studio and use the SDK Manager to install the Android 4.1.2 SDK (the version of Android that most of the apps in this book target)
5. Configure an Android device for testing (turn on developer options, turn on USB debugging, and connect to your computer with a USB cable)

I hope this answers your question!
