Installing the Debug Binary Package

This section provides a tutorial example on how to install the debug binary package to the Android emulator using the Apache Ant tool and the build file.

Now I need to install the debug build, HelloAndroid-debug-unaligned.apk, on the Android emulator. The Android documentation does not have detailed instructions on this step. But I did the following steps to make it happen:

1. Run the Android emulator, vTablet, through the AVD Manager and wait for the emulator to be fully booted.

2. Install HelloAndroid-debug-unaligned.apk to the Android emulator using the Ant tool:

C:\>cd \herong\HelloAndroid
C:\herong\HelloAndroid>\local\apache-ant-1.9.5\bin\ant installd



     [echo] Installing
        C:\herong\HelloAndroid\bin\HelloAndroid-debug.apk onto default
        emulator or device...
     [exec] * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
     [exec] * daemon started successfully *
     [exec]     pkg: /data/local/tmp/HelloAndroid-debug.apk
     [exec] Success
     [exec] 385 KB/s (37850 bytes in 0.096s)


Total time: 12 seconds

3. Go to Android emulator, and click the "Apps" icon. The "HelloAndroid" application is listed on the screen!
