Hi Jeff,

I have one application where code is separated into two modules - UI comprising of Android and business logic - Pure Java Code.

I want to get the memory footprint of my java code when run on emulator. In this, I dont want to include my android classes, just the non-android code. My application loads large files, want to test application performance when run on emulator.

So, I created Test Project using Android Instrumentation framework and have test cases written there. This testAndroid project(AndroidProj1) starts main activity of "Original Android project" (AndroidProj2). AndroidProj2 has a Java Project (JavaProj) dependent on it.

Now, the problem is , when I run my Android Project(containing UI classes, and dependent Java proj) via AndroidProj1, I get an error - "Process crased" , with no relevant description in logcat.

and when I run same after removing dependent java project, android test cases (AndroidProj1) runs fine, with proper results of test cases(soem dummy test cases).

Can you please suggest as what I can check and correct ?

My aim is to get memory footprint of Java project when run on Emulator.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Kacee,

I would advise checking out blog posts such as Analyzing the memory usage of your Android application. Although it focuses on Android 1.5, this post might still be helpful to you.

All the best.
