When you run automated Android tests with Eclipse or from the command line, you get text output, which isn't good for reporting purposes. If you run a large set of test cases with automated build, the text report isn't very helpful. Fortunately, Android CTS generates test reports in XML with accompanying XSL to make it look nice in a browser. To run your own tests with Android CTS: Download Android CTS Make a new directory MyRepository under android-cts , alongside the existing repository directory. Copy host_config.xml from repository to MyRepository Create directory plans under MyRepository , add a test plan ( MyTests.xml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <TestPla... Create directory testcases under MyRepository . Copy TestDeviceSetup.apk from repository/testcases to MyRepository/testcases Under MyRepository/testcases , create a test...

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...

cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax. The main purpose and use for cURL is to automate unattended file transfers or sequences of operations. It's really easy to see HTTP headers with curl: C:\>curl --head http://www.google.com HTTP/1.0 ... or, headers and page together (dump headers to stdout): $ curl --dump-header - http://www.google.com HTTP/...

This is the error: >>> import urllib2 >>> f = urllib2.urlopen('htt... Reason: SSL is not supported in Python installation. >>> import httplib >>> hasattr(httplib, 'HTTPS'... Solution: recompile Python with SSL on Steps: Download and install OpenSSL , if you don't have it already. Download Python source and rebuild Python (the usual steps of configure, make and make install). Python's configure script should be able to pick up your existing SSL libraries automatically and build a shared library _ssl.so. Some web sites suggest editing the file Modules/setup.dist , uncomment the lines starting with _ssl , and making changes to the SSL path. This would link the SSL library statically to Python. # Socket module helper for socket(2) #_socket s...

The text source of the stored objects (including stored procedures) are made available in Oracle by three views: USER_SOURCE describes the text source of the stored objects owned by the current user. This view does not display the OWNER column. ALL_SOURCE describes the text source of the stored objects accessible to the current user. DBA_SOURCE describes the text source of all stored objects in the database. These are the columns: Column Name Description OWNER Owner of the object NAME Name of the object TYPE Type of object: FUNCTION, JAVA SOURCE, PACKAGE, PACKAGE BODY, PROCEDURE, TRIGGER, TYPE, TYPE BODY LINE Line number of this line of source TEXT Text source of the stored object If you want to search for a certain keyword in the source,...
