A JDK 7, which contains the runtime and tools necessary to build Java applications on Android and run the Eclipse IDE as well as Ant. The only real trouble that you may encounter when installing a JDK is some interferences from a previous installation, such as an existing Java Runtime Environment (JRE).

We port the Box2D library into an NDK module that is reusable among Android projects. Chapter 10, Intensive Computing with RenderScript, introduces RenderScript, an advanced technology to parallelize intensive computation tasks. We also see how to use predefined RenderScript with built-in Intrinsics, which is currently mainly dedicated to image processing.
