Traditionally, Android apps have been built with Java. Starting with the most recent versions of Android Studio, you can now use Kotlin instead. Explore how Java and Kotlin are implemented in Android, and how your code is compiled and packaged for deployment.
- [Instructor] The Android application framework…is built around the Java Developer Kit, or JDK.…Recent versions of Java use OpenJDK,…an open-source implementation of Java from Oracle.…When you're working in Java,…you have to pay attention to what syntax is supported.…For example, Java 5 and 6 syntax…is pretty much supported universally,…and most Java 7 syntax works as well.…A lot of Java 8 syntax features will work…when your project is configured for it,…such as Lambda expressions and method references and so on,…but when you work with Kotlin,…as I'll be doing throughout this series,…you don't have to worry about any of that.…
All Kotlin syntax is supported in Android,…and then it simply becomes a question…of which APIs and libraries are available…when you're working in Android.…The Android SDK includes implementations…of many standard Java APIs.…These typically start with java.,…and include things like java.lang…and java.text and java.util.…And there are also many APIs and libraries…that are specific to Android.…
