AndroidTestCase()
Public Methods
void assertActivityRequiresPermission(String packageName, String className, String permission)
Asserts that launching a given activity is protected by a particular permission by attempting to start the activity and validating that a SecurityException is thrown that mentions the permission in its error message.
void assertReadingContentUriRequiresPermission(Uri uri, String permission)
Asserts that reading from the content uri requires a particular permission by querying the uri and ensuring a SecurityException is thrown mentioning the particular permission.
void assertWritingContentUriRequiresPermission(Uri uri, String permission)
Asserts that writing to the content uri requires a particular permission by inserting into the uri and ensuring a SecurityException is thrown mentioning the particular permission.
Context getContext()
void setContext(Context context)
void testAndroidTestCaseSetupProperly()
Protected Methods
void scrubClass(Class<?> testCaseClass)
This function is called by various TestCase implementations, at tearDown() time, in order to scrub out any class variables.
void setUp()
Sets up the fixture, for example, open a network connection.
void tearDown()
Tears down the fixture, for example, close a network connection.

Public Constructors

public AndroidTestCase ()

Public Methods

public void assertActivityRequiresPermission (String packageName, String className, String permission)

Added in API level 4

Asserts that launching a given activity is protected by a particular permission by attempting to start the activity and validating that a SecurityException is thrown that mentions the permission in its error message. Note that an instrumentation isn't needed because all we are looking for is a security error and we don't need to wait for the activity to launch and get a handle to the activity.

Parameters
packageName String: The package name of the activity to launch.
className String: The class of the activity to launch.
permission String: The name of the permission.

public void assertReadingContentUriRequiresPermission (Uri uri, String permission)

Added in API level 4

Asserts that reading from the content uri requires a particular permission by querying the uri and ensuring a SecurityException is thrown mentioning the particular permission.

Parameters
uri Uri: The uri that requires a permission to query.
permission String: The permission that should be required.

public void assertWritingContentUriRequiresPermission (Uri uri, String permission)

Added in API level 4

Asserts that writing to the content uri requires a particular permission by inserting into the uri and ensuring a SecurityException is thrown mentioning the particular permission.

Parameters
uri Uri: The uri that requires a permission to query.
permission String: The permission that should be required.

Parameters
context Context

public void testAndroidTestCaseSetupProperly ()

Added in API level 1

Protected Methods

protected void scrubClass (Class<?> testCaseClass)

Added in API level 1

This function is called by various TestCase implementations, at tearDown() time, in order to scrub out any class variables. This protects against memory leaks in the case where a test case creates a non-static inner class (thus referencing the test case) and gives it to someone else to hold onto.

Parameters
testCaseClass Class: The class of the derived TestCase implementation.
Throws
IllegalAccessException

protected void setUp ()

Added in API level 1

Sets up the fixture, for example, open a network connection. This method is called before a test is executed.

Throws
Exception

protected void tearDown ()

Added in API level 1

Tears down the fixture, for example, close a network connection. This method is called after a test is executed.

Throws
Exception
