We can use the dynamic instantiation method, like this:

boolean MMAPIAvailable;
try {
// Try to instantiate a class using a string as the Class name
// so, the SDK without the API can compile the application
// If the next code is executed, then the API is available
MMAPIAvailable = true;
} catch ( ClassNotFoundException e) {
MMAPIAvailable = false;
