Answer 1

If you're using eclipse:

  1. Download jar packages for libraries you are interested in
  2. Go to project properties in eclipse -> Java Build Path -> Libraries. Add External JARs here.

Answer 2

Just for completeness' sake - if you aren't using eclipse to develop and you are building with ant - just put the jar in your libs folder of your project.

Also, be warned that not all of them can be automatically converted to Dalvik. For example commons-httpclient does not convert cleanly from the release binaries, you need to go through source to make it work.

If you are using android Stuido - that doesn't yet supports adding libraries - you need to edit the src/build.gradle

I wanted to add and My file called '' was placed in the libs folder, so my build.gradles dependencies look now like this:

dependencies {
    compile files('libs/android-support-v4.jar')
    compile files('libs/')
