android notes - the process of development

0 installation and setup
1 create a project

$ android create project --target 1 --path ./demo --activity demo --package com.example.demo

2 edit source code ~/myspace/demo/src/example/demo/
3 compile with ant

$ ant -debug -verbose

4 run emulator with a script

#! /bin/sh
out/host/linux-x86/bin/emulator -verbose \
-kernel prebuild/android-arm/kernel/kernel-qemu \
-ramdisk out/target/product/generic/ramdisk.img \
-system out/target/product/generic/system.img \
-init-data out/target/product/generic/userdata.img \
-avd myavd -sdcard ./sdcard.img -no-skin -no-boot-anim

5 install the application we have build

$ cd ~/myspace/demo
$ adb install bin/demo-debug.apk
$ adb install -r bin/demo-debug.apk (for reinstall)
$ adb shell
# logcat
# ps a (to get process id to kill)
# kill -9

That's on java side, on the android side,
1 setup

$ cd ~/myspace/mydroid
$ source ./build/
$ lunch 1

2 build the project in android

$ cd ./frames/base/media/libmediaplayerservice
$ mm (it builds libmediaplayerservice library as an example)
$ cd ~/myspace/mydroid (go back to the root)
$ make snod (build the system image

then you can go back to run emulator with parameters specified in the script.

Calculate cpu usage in MCycles/sec

Here is the script to calculate cpu usage in MCycles per second.
The cpu speed is 222MHz as an example, processing data rate is 44100, each block has 8192 samples, and the total calls to foo is 532.



# the following val is got from gprof as percentage cpu time, 30.11%.

duration=`echo "scale=4; $blksize * $call / $rate" | bc`
echo "duration: " $duration

secs_foo=`echo "scale=4; $duration * $pcpu_foo /100" | bc`
echo "secs_foo " $secs_foo

blksecs_foo=`echo "scale=4; $secs_foo/$call"|bc`
echo "blocksecs_foo" $blksecs_foo

cpu_foo=`echo "scale=4; $cpu * $rate / $blksize * $blksecs_foo"|bc`
echo "cpu_foo " $cpu_foo " MCycle/sec"

u8.04 - build procmeter3

At last, I left Fedora Core 5 which I have used for these 2 years and move to Ubuntu. I am now running Ubuntu 8.04 which is not a very latest version, but at least it is newer than FC5.

But by default to build procmeter3, it prompts "X11/Intristic.h is missing". I have to install the following packages:

$ sudo apt-get install libxt-dev libxaw-headers libxaw7-dev
$ make
$ sudo make install

android notes - build and test shared library

1. download system.tar.gz from benno and extract it to ~/myspace/tmp.
2. make a link.

cd ~/myspace/tmp/system/lib
ln -s

Is it necessary? but it fixed the problem to looking for
3. Here is the Makefile.

LD_OPTS= --entry=_start \
--dynamic-linker /system/bin/linker -nostdlib \
-rpath /system/lib -rpath ~/myspace/tmp/system/lib \
-L ~/myspace/tmp/system/lib -L .
foo2.a : foo2.c
$(CC) -g -fpic -c foo2.c
$(CC) -g -shared -nostdlib -o foo2.o
$(AR) -rcs $@ foo2.o
foo2: main.c start.c foo2.a
$(CC) -g -c main.c
$(CC) -g -c start.c
$(LD) $(LD_OPTS) -lc -lfoo2 -o foo2 main.o start.o

when build the library, should set "-nostdlib"

4. run the commands

$ make foo2
$ adb push /data
$ adb push foo2 /data
$ adb shell
# cd data
# ./trace ./foo2
