How to make the Maps work on the Emulator when behind a proxy server

 I googled around to find a solution for getting Maps to work on the
Android emulator when my computer is behind a proxy server. I got the
web borwser to work by adding a new row to the settings.db's system
table. But that fix does not fix the Maps problem.

Does anyone have a solution to this yet? I am surprised this isn't
fixed yet by Google.

1. Cannot run the Android in Eclipse

Hello  Developers,

I have been trying to run an application using eclipse for quite a
while.  Every time I run the program, it displays this error,
HelloPhoneGap] Unknown error: Unable to build: the file dx.jar was not
loaded from the SDK folder!.. I try to clean it, refresh it, even
adding the jar file to the library and nothing happens. I even re-
downloaded eclipse, ADT, and the sdk but still the same problem. I was
just trying to run the hello world in an Android project. Can someone
please help me?Please?

I am using windows 7, 4gb, and I am using Android ADT 10, and Eclipse

2. How can I automate a test that sends multiple mock intents to an Android activity?

I am testing an app by sending mock intents to an Android activity via
the Android instrumentation tools and Android JUnit in Eclipse.

I am able to successfully create a test that sends one Intent to an
Activity, but I want to automate this and send several consecutive
Intents so I can test the Activity with many pieces of data put in as
an "extra" in the Intent. My code (which works for a single Intent) is
as follows:

public class SearchTest extends
ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2<SearchResults> {

    private ListActivity mActivity;
    private ArrayList<String> testManifest = new ArrayList<String>();
    TextView tv;

    public SearchTest() {
        super("org.fdroid.fdroid", SearchResults.class);

    protected void setUp() throws Exception{
        Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEARCH);
        i.putExtra(SearchManager.QUERY, testManifest.get(0));
        mActivity = getActivity();
        tv = (TextView) mActivity.findViewById(;

    public void testSearchResult(){
        assertTrue(mActivity.getListView().getCount() > 0);

    public void setUpTestManifest(){
        //populate the test manifest
        testManifest.add("Sample Key Word 1");
        testManifest.add("Sample Key Word 2");
        testManifest.add("Sample Key Word 3");


How can I make this work where I can have hundreds of items in the
testManifest and create an Intent and test for each of those items?
