MockContentResolver

extends ContentResolver
java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.content.ContentResolver
     ↳ android.test.mock.MockContentResolver

Class Overview

An extension of ContentResolver that is designed for testing.

MockContentResolver overrides Android's normal way of resolving providers by authority. To have access to a provider based on its authority, users of MockContentResolver first instantiate the provider and use addProvider(String, ContentProvider). Resolution of an authority occurs entirely within MockContentResolver.

Users can also set an authority's entry in the map to null, so that a provider is completely mocked out.
