SDK stands for "Software Developer Kit".

IDE stands for "integrated development environment" or "interactive development environment".

An SDK is a component that you can use within an application that you are developing to take advantage of functionality that another party has developed for you.

An IDE is an application that helps you to develop software. It includes a text editor that could possible help you find syntax errors on the fly...it usually includes a compiler so that you can build and execute your application...and it usually contains debugging components that let you put break points in your code to see what's going on. Some examples of IDEs are Visual Studio (for developing .NET applications) and Eclipse (for developing Java applications).

Now, back to your question, you want to know how to integrate an SDK and an IDE?

What IDE are you using?
What is the SDK supposed to offer you?
Is the SDK actually supposed integrate with the IDE?

An SDK usually only includes the necessary building blocks for developing applications. This includes frameworks, libraries, header files, whatever as well as compilers, debuggers, and various other tools, such as profilers, etc.

An IDE simply makes access to those more user-friendly (or integrated, hence the name), if you will. However, Eclipse for example comes with its own compiler as well.
