The Android unit test framework is based on JUnit 3 , not JUnit 4. Test cases have to extend junit.framework.TestCase or a subclass (such as android.test.InstrumentationTestCase ). Tests are identified by public methods whose name starts with test , not methods annotated with @Test (as in JUnit 4). An Android test suite is packaged as an APK, just like the application being tested. To create a test package, first you need to identify the application package it is testing. Google suggests to put the test package source in a directory named tests/ alongside the src/ directory of the main application. At runtime, Android instrumentation loads both the test package and the application under test into the same process. Therefore, the tests can invoke methods on...

Here are some examples for gnu grep v2.7: # Find all numbers (no decimal point), basic regex...

However, this does not work for PostgreSQL (as of version 9.0-801 jdbc4): Exception in thread "main" org.postgresql.util.PSQ... The workaround is to call a PostgreSQL function to create the Blob, then use JDBC to update it: Connection conn = jdbcTemplate.getDataSource().get...
