    Default Android Support Reposity includeable in Eclipse Neon??

    Hi,

    for certain compatibility reasons, I have to use Eclipse Neon for Android Development to develop an android app. Therefore I also have to use the newest Android SDK so I can implement some newest features.

    Now, I am facing the problem that I cannot compile any Android app with Eclipse, because I get errors like

    The import android.support cannot be resolved
    ActionBarActivity cannot be resolved to a type
    Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name "ThemeAppCompat. "

    upon building. As I found out, this is because Eclipse is missing the "Android support library" (android support library.jar ?) in the sdk folder. The reason for this is, as I found out, that this library is obsolete and has been replaced by the "Android support repository". It has not been installed by the Android SDK manager and cannot be installed anymore, but Eclipse still needs it apparently.

    I searched a lot for a solution for this but all answers I could find was "Swtich to Android Studio" Unfortunately, there is no way around using Eclipse for me. Is there any known way to include the support repository and make eclipse use it? I found this site

    https://developer.android.com/topic/...ary/setup.html

    and thought, maybe I can follow these steps to make my app to a gradle.build and then include the stuff from the repository and get my stuff to work, but unfortunately I could not find a way to realize this.


    I changed the related section in the gradle.build file to this:



    dependencies {


    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:24.0.0'

    }



    but could not get the app being built.

    Is there any known solution for this? I actually cannot imagine that I am the only one trying to develop an Android App with the new support repository file these days. Should I maybe manually insert the obsolete (but newest) android support library.jar file from an older IDE? Could this work?

    Thank you many times for your help.

    I'm not entirely sure why you have to use Eclipse rather than Android Studio.
    As you can see, you are now forced to jerry rig your set up and likely create further issues.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    An earlier attempt to import all the work into A-Studio unfortunately failed. There was no way to make all the libraries and projects work in A-Studio.

    Am I the only one trying to work with Eclipse and the newest Android SDK?
