Positron and Android TDD

by fernan.do » Thu, 01 May 2008 16:56:07 GMT

 Hi Everyone!
I am using Positron to do acceptance tests in my applications. Yet I
am running into a really annoying issue and I was wondering if anyone
has seen this before.
1)I have not been able to develop a launch strategy for positron.
Meaning that I have not been able to find how to launch tests
consistently without the logcat in eclipse suddenly disconnecting
2)It seems that positron does not update on the fly before re-
execution. That means that if I change something on a test, I continue
getting the same logcat output, the only way to see the changes pushed
(or the only thing I have seen) is to close eclipse and start tests
3) Running the acceptance tests as a java app if I try to debug them,
the program does not stop on any of my break points...

Thanks for all the help guys!

 I'm guessing you should post this in the Positron forums, I'm sure
Phil will be happy to listen.

1. Create contextmenu just like the one on the homescreen


I can create context menu on my app, but it's a single level only.
The question is how to create categorized menu on my context menu just
like on the home screen's context menu?


Application (level 1)
     |-Application name (level 2)

I tried to use submenu, but it pops up another dialog box instead of
expanding the category.

Can anybody give me a hint?



2. When will the Media classes be able to connect to telephone 'conversation' audio channels ?

I'd never claim that all of the software on android can be replaced by third
party developers.  Most system application components can be re-used and
replaced by third party apps, but that is a very different statement.

Also, just being able to replace the phone app (which is not really any app,
but more a core system process) means nothing about being able to do
IVR-like features -- all the phone app does is talk with the radio module
(running on a different processor) using very high-level commands.

If you want to add new features to the platform, you can get the source code
and look/work on it, and talk about that work on android-platform.  Though
again, I doubt you would get very far adding IVR features even directly
modifying the platform code.
