java version "1.6.0_11"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_11-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b16, mixed mode, sharing)
2. Getting JDK 6.0:

3. Dowloading the Android SDK:
Available from the Google Android Website . I downloaded version 2.0.1 for Windows. (~22MB). Be sure to run SDK Setup.exe after you unpack.
