Android Libraries

android

  • System C library – a BSD-derived implementation of the standard C system library (libc), tuned for embedded Linux-based devices
  • Media Libraries – based on PacketVideo’s OpenCORE; the libraries support playback and recording of many popular audio and video formats, as well as static image files, including MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, and PNG
  • LibWebCore – a modern web browser engine which powers both the Android browser and an embeddable web view
  • SGL – the underlying 2D graphics engine
  • 3D libraries – an implementation based on OpenGL ES 1.0 APIs; the libraries use either hardware 3D acceleration (where available) or the included, highly optimized 3D software rasterizer
  • FreeType – bitmap and vector font rendering
  • SQLite – a powerful and lightweight relational database engine available to all applications
  • Surface Manager – manages access to the display subsystem and seamlessly composites 2D and 3D graphic layers from multiple applications
