Open Source Code Package

The Application Resource Optimizer (ARO) is a diagnostic tool for analyzing mobile web application performance developed by AT&T. ARO allows you to automatically profile an application to optimize performance, make battery utilization more efficient, and reduce network impact.

The ARO Data Collector is the component of the ARO application that captures the data traffic of a mobile device and stores that information in trace files that can be analyzed using the ARO Data Analyzer.

The ARO Data Analyzer is the component of the ARO application that evaluates the trace data collected from an application and generates statistical and analytical results based on recommended best practices.

This Open Source Code Package contains all of the code needed to build both of these ARO components.

Version:
ARO Data Collector 1.4.0
ARO Data Analyzer 1.4.0

New Features:
In this release of ARO, a WiFi device profile has been added to the ARO Data Analyzer that allows you to analyze trace data based on the WiFi energy model. Also, the ARO Data Analyzer can now analyze trace files that have been collected using the Microsoft Network Monitor.

Known Issues:

  • When running AT&T ARO for the first time on a new machine, you must select a device profile by opening the Profile menu, selecting Load, and choosing a pre-defined profile from the Select Device Profile dialog box.
  • To analyze a trace file in the ARO Data Analyzer that was collected using Microsoft Network Monitor, you must have Microsoft Network Monitor installed on the same machine.

Note: All known issues from previous releases have been fixed in this release.

Compiling and Building ARO

The following sections describe the basic steps for compiling and building the ARO Data Collector and ARO Data Analyzer. For more detailed information, see the ARO Compilation and Build Guide.

ARO Data Collector

This section describes how to setup the development environment, and then compile and build the ARO Data Collector into an Android Application Package (APK) using the Android SDK and Apache Ant. The APK file can then be installed on a device via the Android Debug Bridge (ADB).

Note: In order for the ARO Data Collector to be fully functional, it must be installed on a rooted device.

Setup the Development Environment

  1. Download and setup the Android SDK. Go to the Android Developers website http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html, download the Android package for your platform, and follow the steps to setup the Android SDK.

  2. Add additional components. Follow the installation instructions at http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html, especially the step: Adding Platforms and Other Components.

  3. Download Apache ANT. Go to http://ant.apache.org and follow the download instructions.

Compile and Build the ARO Data Collector

  1. Checkout the ARO Data Collector source code from the ARODataCollector folder to a local folder.

  2. Update the project.properties to match your local configuration and generate a build.xml by using the following command syntax:

    android update project --name <project_name> --target <target_ID> --path <path_to_your_project>
    

    Note: ARO Data Collector supports Android 2.1 and above, so the target id should be set to a value greater than 2.1. In the following example, it is set to 7.

    android update project --name ARODataCollector --target 7 --path ../ARODataCollector
    
  3. Build the ARO Data Collector project for debug using the command "ant debug", or for release using the command "ant release".

  4. Transfer the ARO Data Collector APK file to a rooted device using the ADB, with the command: "adb aro"

ARO Data Analyzer

To build the ARO Data Analyzer, follow these steps to setup the development environment for your OS and compile and build the code.

Note: A build of the ARO Data Analyzer application (aro.jar) is included in the ARODataAnalyzer\lib directory.

Windows
The system requirements for compiling, building, and running the ARO Data Analyzer on the Windows OS are:

  • A computer running Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows Seven.

  • At least 1GB of RAM.

  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.6 or greater is required to run the ARO Data Analyzer. To compile and build the ARO Data Analyzer in the same environment, install the Java Development Kit (JDK) version 1.6 or greater which includes the JRE.

  • WinPcap, the "industry-standard windows packet capture library".

  • ANT, An Apache Java build tool.

Note: If needed, configure the JAVA_HOME system variable so that it points to your Java installation directory. This can be done in the Advanced tab of System Properties, by editing the Environment Variables.

Mac
The system requirements for compiling, building, and running the ARO Data Analyzer on the Mac OS are:

  • A computer running Mac OS X 10.6 and above.

  • At least 1GB of RAM.

  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.6 or greater is required to run the ARO Data Analyzer. To compile and build the ARO Data Analyzer in the same environment, install the Java Development Kit (JDK) version 1.6 or greater which includes the JRE.

  • ANT, An Apache Java build tool.

Compile and Build the ARO Data Analyzer
To compile and build the open source ARO Data Analyzer code for Java, do the following:

Checkout the ARO Data Analyzer source code including the build.xml file, from the ARODataAnalyzer folder to a local folder, and use ANT to compile and build the application.

  • The build.xml file builds the .jar file that contains the compiled classes for the ARO Data Analyzer.

  • The files aro.bat and aro are included in the ARODataAnalyzer\lib directory of the ARO Open Source Package to help you run the .jar file with default run settings:

  • To launch the .jar file in the Windows OS, run aro.bat from the command line.

  • To launch the .jar file in the Mac OS, run aro.
