1. ServiceTestCase and Contexts

Hey Everyone,
   I don't know if I am doing something wrong here, but when I am
trying to use the ServiceTestCase class to test my Service, I cannot
get a context which points to the test project.  getContext() and
getSystemContext() both seem to point to the target project's
context.  The reason I need the context of my test app is that i have
some assets which i need to be able to use in order to test the
service in question.  Does anyone know of a workaround or could point
me at a way of resolving this?  (i looked through the source of
ServiceTestCase and didn't see another way)

Something similar to instrumentationtestcase's
getInstrumentation.getContext() is what I am looking for.
