What is AVD

  • An Android Virtual Device (AVD) is an emulator configuration that lets you model an actual device by defining hardware and software options to be emulated by the Android Emulator. The easiest way to create an AVD is to use the graphical AVD Manager, which you launch from Eclipse by clicking Window > AVD Manager.


Creation of an AVD

  • Open Eclipse IDE

  • Click on Window > AVD Manager.

  • The following screen wil be displayed.



  • Now Click on New. A dialg box will appear on the screen to fill some configuration details about the AVD.

  • Fill in the details and make sure the Target is the API of the device which you want to target. This is the minimum API below which the Application wont run.

  • Once you click on create, a new AVD will automatically be added to the list.
