The same way as every other Android-JAVA developer does: Using the tool 
supplied by the SDK.

The point is this: All available classes of the SDK are in the normal 
bytecode format, so that you can use "javac" to compile your code. After 
you've compiled everything you use the tool "dx" to convert all your 
".class" files to one ".dex" file. It's part of the normal Android 
development workflow. ;)
