This section is aimed at Tradefed developers. If you are interested in extending TF or adding new test support, this is the section for you.
If you plan to use the open source variant of Trade Federation, use these
commands to check out and build the AOSP
main branch of Trade Federation:
repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b main
repo sync -c -j8
lunch aosp_cf_x86_64_phone-userdebug # or any other device target
m -j tradefed-all
See Development Environment for more details.
Alternatively, if you are creating tests/utilities that use Trade Federation but aren't working on the framework itself, consider placing your work inside one of the Trade Federation contrib projects to speed approvals.
Trade Federation follows the Android coding style guidelines, with the following clarifications: interface names are prefixed with 'I' e.g. ITestDevice.
Develop using Eclipse
If you are interested in using Eclipse in developing Tradefed, refer to Set up Eclipse IDE for tips on setting up your environment.
