I just want to know if there is a way to share Android SDK in multiple systems. Suppose if we have 500 computers in the workspace for Android development, do we need to install android SDK , eclipse etc. in all of them? Or is there a Domain Controller kind of thing? Or atleast copy Android SDK some where in the network and use it?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Yes, the Android SDK can be loaded to a network share and accessed by multiple users. Just put the SDK on server or in one PC on the network. Then, point your IDE to the network path where you have copied the SDK.
This screenshot should give you an idea of how to set the path to your SDK in Eclipse.
Doing this will decrease the speed of debugging the app. Furthermore, the emulator will run much slower.
