  • Android SDK v23
  • Android Build Tools v23
  • Android Support Repository rev17

Getting Started

These samples use the Gradle build system. To build a project, enter the project directory and use the ./gradlew assemble command or use "Import Project" in Android Studio.

  • Use ./gradlew connectedAndroidTest to run the tests on a connected emulator or device.
  • Use ./gradlew test to run the unit test on your local host.

There is a top-level build.gradle file if you want to build and test all samples from the root directory. This is mostly helpful to build on a CI (Continuous Integration) server.

Android Testing Support Library

Many of these samples use the ATSL. Visit the Android Testing Support Library site for more information.
