Live SDK for Android 

version 5.0

1. Introduction

The Live SDK for Android library is intended to help developers to easily
integrate SkyDrive and Hotmail contacts and calendars into their Android apps.

2. Reference the API

After you download the Android API source code, you must compile it. You need
to do this only once. After you compile the Android API source code on your
computer, you can reference it from multiple Eclipse Android projects on that
same computer.

To compile the Android API source code  
1. Start Eclipse, if it is not already running.
2. Click File > Import.
3. Expand General, click Existing Projects into Workspace, and then click Next.
4. With the Select root directory option selected, click Browse.
5. Go to and select the src folder within the downloaded Live SDK for Android, and then click OK.
6. In the Projects box, select the LiveSdk check box.
7. With the Copy projects into workspace check box selected, click Finish.
  Eclipse adds the LiveSdk project to the Package Explorer pane and then
  compiles the Android API source code in the background.
8. You can now reference the compiled Android API source code from your Eclipse
  Android projects.

To reference the compiled Android API source code in an Eclipse Android
1. In Eclipse, display the Package Explorer pane, if it is not already visible.
2. Right-click your project's name, and then click Properties.
3. In the list of project properties, click Android.
4. In the Library area, click Add.
5. Click LiveSdk and then click OK.
6. Click OK. Eclipse sets a reference to the compiled Android API source code
  project, and you can now call the Live Connect Android API from your own
  Android project.

Note: Before you run your project, you must add the Internet permission to your
      project's manifest, as shown in the following steps. If you don't add the
      Internet permission, your app may have problems accessing Live Connect
      web services later.
1. With your project open, in the Package Explorer pane, open the AndroidManifest.xml file.
2. In the editor, click the Permissions tab.
3. Click Add.
4. Click Uses Permission, and then click OK.
5. the Name list, click android.permission.INTERNET.
