Reference a Java SDK in Xamarin?

(I'm completely green to Android Studio, and I reference it here because it's the only way I have access to the SDK I need in my Xamarin App)

So, I have a java SDK which I've been given access to, which I have added to an Android Studio "Hello World" project via a Maven URL and a compile directive (in the build.gradle files).

How would I go about extracting this SDK from the project so that I can use it in my Xamarin.Android app?

Sorry this is so open ended, but I'm quite lost here.

    Dear LanceKing

    Android studio is a separate software, Xamarin visual studio is different and Xamarin studio is also different . Java SDK is installed in programs and if you are using xamarin visual studio setting is given in Tools --> Options --> Xamarin
    from where you can change version of sdk. below image will show you settings.

    set Java_Home path in system variables.

    to get java sdks in your project.

    Thanks for trying to help here Sunil, but I'm not having trouble with "Java SDKs", it's an SDK "written in Java" that I'm trying to use/reference in my app. I've made a little progress, but now my questions are quite different so I'll just post a new topic.

    Thanks though!
