Getting Started with the SDK

Home > Dev Tools

To get started with developing applications,
install the bada Software Development Kit (SDK).

The bada SDK installation also contains the bada IDE.
Before installing the SDK, make sure that; Your computer fulfills the system requirements and that the required software has been installed.

  • Microsoft Windows® XP 32-bit, Windows® Vista 32-bit or Windows® 7 32- or 64-bit operating system.
  • Local administrator authority.
  • At least dual-core 1.8 GHz of CPU, 2GB of RAM memory and 2.2 GB of free hard disk space.
  • To guarantee that the application using OpenGL® ES runs properly on the emulator, the screen resolution of the PC system has to be greater than the resolution of the emulator. For example, the WVGA emulator runs properly on a system whose display resolution is larger than 480x800

Go to the SDK Download

1. Installing the bada SDK
If you have installed the SDK before and are now upgrading to a new version, first uninstall the previous version
  • 1. Download the SDK installer, bada_SDK_<version>.exe.
  • 2. Run the SDK installer. The SDK installation wizard starts.
  • 3. Select the required language packs and click Next.
  • 4. Click Install. The SDK is now installed and configured on your computer.
The installer downloads the needed language packs during the installation, and the download can fail due to firewall issues or unstable network connections. In that case, download the SDK full package, unzip it, and run the unzipped bada_SDK_<version>.exe file. The full package includes the supported language packs, so no downloads are required during the actual installation.

If you need to add more language packs to your SDK later on, do not reinstall the SDK with the SDK installer, since it can cause problems for your development environment. Instead, download the language pack installers (bada_SDK_<version>_<model>_LP#.exe files) from the bada developer site and run them.
2. Starting the bada IDE
When you start the IDE for the first time, a welcome page is displayed with more information on bada and on developing with the IDE.
3. Generating a New Application Profile
Before actually starting to develop your mobile application, you need to make some initial preparations and define some basic information for your application. Go to Application Manager to register your application and define its basic information.

Notice to Developers : If you have started developing your application with the default manifest.xml generated by the IDE, you must re-create the application project. Before you start application development, you must set the system requirements for the target device and the appropriate privilege groups. Then download a manifest.xml file that contains this information and use the file in the application project.

4. Creating a Project
After defining your application details and downloading your application's manifest.xml file, you can start actual development with the bada IDE.
