Android Application Development - Traceview

Class 2, Part 3. This video comes from Marakana's 5-Day Android Bootcamp Training Course which Marko Gargenta taught in San Jose, CA earlier this year.

In this 40-minute tutorial, Marko will show you how you can use the Android SDK tool Traceview to analyze data and debug issues in your Android application.

By the end of this tutorial, you'll know how to generate log files containing information you want to analyze, and then use Traceview to view that information graphically.

This tutorial will cover:

  • A break down of the Android device file system
  • The three main partitions in the Android file system: data, sdcard, and system
  • Generating trace files from your Android application
  • Using Traceview to analyze the data in your trace file, and debug issues in your Android app

You can find all of the videos from the Android Bootcamp Screencast Series here.
