Detailed Description

The Android.sdk module contains the properties and rules to create Android application packages from Java sources, resources, and so on. It is usually pulled in indirectly by declaring an Application product.

"android.aidl"*.aidl1.4.0Attached to Android AIDL files. One Java source file will be generated for each such file.
"android.assets"-1.4.0Attached to Android assets, which are typically located in an assets/ subdirectory. These files are tagged automatically if the automaticSources property is enabled.
