installation _of _Cordova _PHONE GAP TECHNOLOGY

Install Cordova
Follow these steps to install Cordova:
1.    Install Node.js. Cordova runs on the Node.js platform, which needs to be installed as the first step. Download installer from: http://nodejs.org
2.    Go ahead an run the downloaded installation file. It is recommended to use the default settings. Node.js needs to be added to the PATH environment variable, which is done by default.
3.    To test the installation, open a command window (make sure you open a new command window to get the updated path settings made by the Node.js installation), and type:
node --version
If the version number is displayed, Node.js is installed and working!
4.    Install Git. Git is a version control system, which is used by Cordova behind-the-scenes. Download and install from: http://git-scm.com. Default settings are recommended.
5.    Install Cordova. Cordova is installed using the Node Package Manager (npm). Type the following in the command window to install:
npm install -g cordova
6.    Test the Cordova install by typing:
cordova --version
If you see the version number, you have successfully installed Apache Cordova!
Install Java
The Android SDK needs the Java Development Kit (JDK) to be installed (minimum version 1.6). Note that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is not sufficient, you will need the JDK. To check if you have the JDK installed already, type this on the command line:
javac -version
If you do not have the JDK installed, proceed as follows:
1.    Download the Java SE JDK (SE = Standard Edition) from Oracle:www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/. Click the Java SE Download to see the list fo download. Get the "Windows x86" download if you have 32-bit Windows, and "Windows x64" if you have 64-bit Windows. If you do not know which version you have, find out using the Control Panel by selecting "System and Security" and then "System", where you will find the "System type" saying if your Windows version is 32-bit or 64-bit.
2.    Go along and run the downloaded installer file. Using the default selections should be fine, but take a note of the directory in which you install the JDK. You will need to add this to the PATH in a later step below.
3.    Next, update your path to include the JDK. Open the Control Panel, click System and Security, click System, click Change settings, which will open the System Properties window. Select the Advanced tab, then click theEnvironment Variables button.
4.    In the list User variables select PATH and click the Edit button. (If there is no PATH entry in the list, click the New button to create one.)
5.    At the end of the field Variable value, add a semicolon followed by the path to the bin directory of the JDK install. Here is an example (note that this must be the actual path used for the install on your machine):
;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_11\bin
An easy way to do this is to prepare the path to add in a text editor, then paste it at the end of the input field. When done click the OK button.
6.    Next add the JAVA_HOME variable if it is not present (and if it is in the list, you may need to update its value using the Edit button). Click the New button. In the field Variable name type:
In the field Variable value enter the path to the directory where the JDK is installed, without the semicolon and the /bin subdirectory, for example:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_11
Click the OK button.
7.    Click the OK button again to close the Environment Variables window.
8.    Now you are ready to test the install. Close any open command windows, and open a new command window and type:
javac -version
If you see a version number you are done with the JDK install!
Install Ant:

& download  zip file for Ant & extract  zip file  into
 C:\Program Files\ANT\apache-ant-1.8.4

Then set  Environment   variables for Ant
type in: ANT_HOME and C:\Program Files\ANT\apache-ant-1.8.4

All subsequent commands need to be run within the project's directory, or any subdirectories within its scope:
    $ cd hello
Before you can build the project, you need to specify a set of target platforms. Your ability to run these commands depends on whether your machine supports each SDK, and whether you have already installed each SDK. Run any of these from a Mac:
    $ cordova platform add ios
    $ cordova platform add amazon-fireos
    $ cordova platform add android
    $ cordova platform add blackberry10
    $ cordova platform add firefoxos
Run any of these from a Windows machine, where wp refers to different versions of the Windows Phone operating system:
    $ cordova platform add wp8
    $ cordova platform add windows
    $ cordova platform add amazon-fireos
    $ cordova platform add android
    $ cordova platform add blackberry10
    $ cordova platform add firefoxos
Run this to check your current set of platforms:
    $ cordova platforms ls


C:\Users\OM>cordova create welcome  com.example.welcome   HelloWorld
Creating a new cordova project with name "HelloWorld"    and
 id "com.example.welcome"   at location "C:\Users\OM\welcome"
