For this milestone, you will get a basic Android project working in the emulator. Optionally, you can also set up a physical Android device to run the app.
To begin, open the Android Studio application. If you already have a project open, use File » Close Project so you can see the Welcome screen.
LASTNAME.liucs.net. Change the Project location to your
cs164folder – so it should end with
The project can take a few minutes to set up and index the files.
You may now want to open your Git GUI, and commit the initial project before you make any changes to it.
Before we start to modify the project, let’s try to run it in the emulator, to see whether the basics work. Hit the green play button on the Studio toolbar. At first it will say “Waiting for ADB,” and then the progress bar will switch to the bottom of the window where it says “Gradle: executing tasks.”
Then a window will pop up, offering to choose a running device. You can try that if a device appears there, but if not, then choose “Launch emulator.”
It can take a while for emulator to finish initializing. When you see the home screen (time and date, lock icon at the bottom), drag the lock upwards to unlock. If the screen is blank, it might have gone to sleep – just click on it. Once unlocked, the app should appear, with its “Hello world” message.
If you have problems up to this point, post them to Piazza.
The rest of this milestone was covered well in lecture on Feb 2, take a look at the video if you missed it. For the rest of this milestone, please try:
In the android app, add a button to the screen, and an action that takes place when you push the button (such as changing or moving some text).
In a different class, create a static method that performs some calculation, and some test code to automatically test the results.
In the video, I didn’t get JUnit to work completely, so it’s not required for this milestone, and I’ll post better instructions later.
