Get an on-hand device: Samsung Galasy SII

December 7, 2011 Leave a comment

After long time waiting, I’ve had my chance to take own of the one I desire, the Samsung Galaxy S II – I9100.

Just testing and using it for several days, it’s really working great beyond my imagination.

Certainly, there will be more tutorials and articles on my blog from now on.

Get Current IP Address of Device

November 1, 2011 1 comment

Here a quick snippet I wrote to get current IP of device.

public String getDeviceCurrentIPAddress() {
	static final String DOT = ".";
	WifiManager wifiManager = (WifiManager)getSystemService(WIFI_SERVICE);
	int IP = wifiManager.getConnectionInfo().getIpAddress();
	return (
		(( IP >> 24 ) && 0xFF ) + DOT +
		(( IP >> 16 ) && 0xFF ) + DOT +
		(( IP >>  8 ) && 0xFF ) + DOT +
		(  IP         && 0xFF )

Connect to a specific device in Monkey script

July 7, 2011 1 comment

There are cases when you run many emulators in order to test their functions like sending messages, calling to each others …

and in Monkey scripts you need to connect to specific one.

Look at documentation on MonkeyRunner, you’ll see how to connect to a specific device:

Sample: if I want to connect to a device: “emulator-5556”, my connection part of script would be like:

device = MonkeyRunner.waitForConnection(120, "emulator-5556")

That’s all for it, now you can handle the rest of automation test for device.

Check if SIM card available on device

Interesting snippet:

        TelephonyManager tm = (TelephonyManager) this.getSystemService(Context.TELEPHONY_SERVICE);
        if (tm.getSimState() != TelephonyManager.SIM_STATE_ABSENT){
          // The phone has SIM card
        } else {
          // No SIM card on the phone

Refer to TelephonyManager class for more information.

Get files from emulator/device

June 25, 2011 6 comments

Sometimes, you might want to get files from devices for inspection, well, something like your SQLite databases, or file output…

This is how you do it:

adb pull [remote_device_path] [local_path]

Ok, a sample when I want to get my database from device to local:

adb pull /data/data/ C:\Downloads\images.db

Very effective and simple!
Hope you like it!

Push files/directories into emulator/device

June 25, 2011 1 comment

In order to put files or directories into emulator/device, you need to issue command “push” from adb with following syntax:

adb push [local_path] [remote_device_path]

Here a sample if I want to put a file named ‘data.txt‘ into my folder in device: ‘/data/data/‘, I issue this command

adb push C:\data.txt /data/data/

To check whether the file pushed into devices succeeded or not, I will try:

ls /data/data/

If file ‘data.txt‘ appears, then it was pushed inside successfully.

Hope you like it!

Query emulator/device instance

This is a simple command, not everyone knows:

adb devices

It will display lists of devices’ serial number and its state (Offline / Attached).
