Chapter 2 goes into more detail on setting up and using the development tools. The code examples in this chapter are primarily for illustrative purposes. We reference and introduce classes without necessarily naming specific Java packages. Subsequent chapters take a more rigorous approach to introducing Android-specific packages and classes. NOTE Next, we’ll look at the foundational information about why Intents are important, and then we’ll describe how Intents work. Beyond the introduction of the Intent, the remainder of this chapter describes the major elements of Android application development, leading up to and including the first complete Android application that you’ll develop.

For more in-depth exploration of the Linux foundations of Android, see chapter 13. Let’s apply some of what you’ve learned by building your first Android application. 8 Creating an Android application Let’s look at a simple Android application consisting of a single Activity, with one View. The Activity collects data (a street address) and creates an Intent to find this address.
We’re going to examine the requested action and, generically, the data that accompanies the requested action. An IntentFilter is a declaration of capability and interest in offering assistance to those in need. It can be generic or specific with respect to which Intents it offers to service. The action attribute of an Intent is typically a verb: for example VIEW, PICK, or EDIT. A number of built-in Intent actions are defined as members of the Intent class, but application developers can create new actions as well.
