android: testing library projects

The latest Android SDK Tools (Revision 17 or greater) features several fixes related with library projects and the way the R class is now generated, and the way custom attributes for custom views are handled. This opens a greater number of possibilities using library projects and sooner or later you will be facing the need of testing the library.

Following there is a quick reference of how to do it for a sample library project called AndroidLibrary and its corresponding test project AndroidLibraryTest.

Create library project

Set properties to indicate it is a Library

Create test project and set the properties to reference the library

Set the Target package to this same test project

Run the tests
