An SDK is a collection of APIs and other tools that allow you to perform almost anything that you would need to create an application for that platform. Example: JDK[Java Development Kit]

Whereas, an API is something which is more specific. It acts as an interface to some specific service through which other software programs can make use of that service. Example: Google Maps API

I have created a JAVA class exposing native API. I have kept this class in _frameworks/base/core/java/com/myDomain/myPackage/myClass.java_ and for this i have already created JNI C code files and their entries in required make files.

But after building the SDK, it didn't include expected package _com.myDomain.myPackage_.

Is there any specific configuration file(s) where I would have to make entries to include it in Android SDK, or the place is incorrect where currently class files is kept.
