Android :: Loading APK File On Device For QA / Testing

Sep 7, 2010

I'd love to get some ideas on best practices for testing our Android software, especially for AT&T devices. We're using a Samsung Captivate, on AT&T. As you know, AT&T disables sideloading (no Unknowns Sources option in Settings->Applications). We need to have our QA team load our apk file onto these devices as part of our testing and validation process. We're willing to install the SDK if needed, and upload the apk file via USB. We are not willing to root the phone.

Android :: Testing On Every Possible Device?

Nov 13, 2009

We have many phones, but we don't--and probably never will--have all of them.

It's frustrating that some phones cannot see our apps in the market, and we'd like to know which phones those are.

We'd like to have a simple way to have our app tested on each phone, but at this point there's no easy way to do that.

My question is: what would we as developers be willing to do to get these needs met? Is there enough demand for someone to buy all possible Android devices and charge a nominal fee for these services?

We would pay a small fee to have out app accessed and downloaded on all phones--this would give us a report of which phones could access our app. We would pay a fee to have a step-by-step test ran on each possible device so we could know it worked on that device, at least minimally.

Android :: Testing Applications On Device

Feb 11, 2010

I'm trying to make my application (compiled against 2.1) compatible with the 1.5 platform. I've handled all of the res/ folder issues, and have been able to run the app on all platforms without problems. I can run it fine on all emulators, and all devices/OS systems running 1.6 or higher. But on the only 1.5 device I have (HTC Hero), I get intermittent problems.

The only 1.5 device I have is an HTC Hero phone I got free at the Sprint developer conference a few months ago. When I test the app on that device, I have occasionally encountered a bug I've not seen anywhere, and can't find any information about.

I can install the application via the adb install command (although I get two messages about unknown commands), but after installing the app, the icon can disappear from the home screen, replaced either with a different icon or no icon.

When the app is launched in this state, rather than seeing my application name in the title bar, it reads "60.0dip". I don't use this value anywhere in my application.

I have never observed this problem on any other phone I've tested on (G1, myTouch, two Motorola Droids, Nexus One), but as I said I've only got one device running 1.5.

Android :: Unit Testing & Using A Different Database File

Mar 30, 2010

I'm trying to start unit testing on my application (should have done so from the beginning). I've got an Eclipse project structure set up and everything seems to work well, but...

I'm subclassing SQLiteOpenHelper to access the application database. This works well for the application, but when using the same class in the unit tests, it writes to the same database as the actual application. This is obviously rather irritating, since unit test data shows up when developing and testing the actual application.

What's the best way to make the SQLiteOpenHelper class write to a different database file when being called from the unit tests?

Android :: Loading From Compiled XML File

Jun 30, 2010

I have some xml files with a custom format (based on the scxml specifications) that I want my program to read. I've already written the code to read it, but I'm running into problems actually reading the file itself. I want the file to be compiled with the apk, as it will not be changed at all during run time. So I put the file (test.xml) in the res/xml/ folder, and got the inputstream by using:

But when I read in this inputstream it is complete jibberish, which makes me suspect it is being read in binary, as openRawResource() is often used for binary files like images, if I am correct. What is the correct way to do this?

Android :: Dynamic Loading Of Complete Layout File

Jul 1, 2010

I'm dealing with a problem you guys might not have faced earlier. I'm having a use-case in my Android application where the actual screen that I want to show to user is not stored in any layout file of my application. The layout of the of the screen is designed by server in this case, based on selection made by user on first screen.

Let me elaborate here,
1st Screen : List of check box with different biller names. (Imagine I've selected 2 billers from this screen)
2nd Screen : (The screen that server has decided how it should look like)
* Header,
* 1st Biller name (Label)
* Amount for 1st Biller TextBox
* Image (a Separator image)
* 2st Biller name (Label)
* Amount for 2st Biller TextBox.
* Here there can be a checbox/radio/another TextBox anything.
* Image (a Separator image)
* Button (to submit above form back to server)

I hope makes some sense in what I'm planning to design. The current issues I'm dealing with are as below.
1). How to draw this dynamic widgets?
2). How to fetch user Inputs from this dynamically created widgets?

try { TextView helpText = (TextView) findViewById(;
String strFile = inputStreamToString(iFile);
} catch (Exception e) {
} }
public String inputStreamToString(InputStream is) throws IOException {
StringBuffer sBuffer = new StringBuffer();
DataInputStream dataIO = new DataInputStream(is);
String strLine = "";
while ((strLine = dataIO.readLine()) != "") {
sBuffer.append(strLine + " ");
} dataIO.close();
return sBuffer.toString();

Android :: Loading External Data On Local File In WebView

May 27, 2009

when I load external web page, image or javascript file from local webpage. I can't see external image and can't load javascript or webpage. But I can only see local image. Why I can't load external javascript, webpage or image? Here is the HTML source. (of course, I filled right [daum open API key])

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://"> <html> <head> <meta
http-equiv ="Content-Type" content="text/html;
charset=UTF-8"> <title>Daum 지도 API</title>
<script type="text/javascript"
apikey=[daum open API key]" charset="utf-8"></script> </head> <body>
<div id="map" style="width:600px;

</div> <img src=" AAAAAAAAE9U/LEHMtyVLdY8/s400/CutyTale10.jpg">

</script> <iframe src="" width="300" height="150"></iframe> </body> </html>

and I use this Activity source
import android.os.Bundle; import android.webkit.WebView;
public class OpenAPITest extends Activity {

@Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

Android :: Loading String Values From File Instead Of List In Class

Nov 1, 2010

I think I have a pretty easy problem to solve, but I have been beating my head against the wall for hours trying to get past it! I have an adapter that loads a list of URLS:
adapter=new MyAdapter(this, lStrings);

The list of URLS looks like this:
private String[] lStrings={

What I want instead is to load these values from a text file that lies on the SD card. For that matter, I would be okay with loading the values from a text file into a String, and then load the String into the list as I imagine that would be the "cleaner approach". However, all attempts to do this have failed. For instance, I replaced the above snippet with this:

private String[] lStrings=
{ MainActivity.this.getString(R.string.myurllist) };
but then I get a Forced Close on loading.

I'm a bit new to Java, Android, and development in general.

Android :: Android Functional Testing - Testing Multiple Activities

Apr 16, 2009

I've been exploring the Android test package and I'm very confused on how to implement functional testing for endpoint-to-endpoint.

Consider the example below, I have 4 activities: 1. A Contact List Activity 2. A View Contact Activity 3. An Add/Edit Contact Activity 4. A Sync Contact List activity

I want to automate a few tests that will go through multiple test cases simulating a user experience: From launching the application, to selecting 'Add contact;' opening the add contact activity, entering data, saving it, going back to the list activity, and verifying the new contact was saved properly.

As I understand it, ActivityInstrumentationTestCase<T extends Activity> and ActivityUnitTestCase<T extends Activity>, are only useful for testing single activity functionality.

But what if I need to switch between 2 or more activities inside a single functional test case?

Android :: Android Out Of Memory Error - Loading JSON File

May 22, 2010

The app I am working on needs to read a JSON file that may be anywhere from 1.5 to 3 MB in size. It seems to have no problem opening the file and converting the data to a string, but when it attempts to convert the string to a JSONArray, OutOfMemoryErrors are thrown. The exceptions look something like this:

E/dalvikvm-heap( 5307): Out of memory on a 280-byte allocation.
W/dalvikvm( 5307): Exception thrown (Ljava/lang/OutOfMemoryError;
) while throwing internal exception (Ljava/lang/OutOfMemoryError;)

One strange thing about this is that the crash only occurs every 2nd or 3rd time the app is run, leaving me to believe that the memory consumed by the app is not being garbage collected each time the app closes. I'm not quite sure what the best approach is for such a task.

The store I got my phone flashed at said it was impossible to get working apps because the apps are verizons (lies) & now I'm disappointed their not working. My question is that do all stores that flash phones root phones before the flash? If so will going to recovery mode and loading pkopaleks cricket file ruin what has already been done? Lastly if the store didn't have to root to flash how will I fix this problem?
