lava-core provides all the essential parts of server-side LAVA in one place.
LAVA Core is a solution for the growing problem of multiple tiny, separate projects. Eventually it will aggregate all server side components. Currently it is being used as a place to develop new code for LAVA fast models.
For more information about lava see https://launchpad.net/lava-project
Seriously, lava has way to many tiny pieces. It all started when we renamed launch-control to lava-dashboard and created lava-server in the process. Now it's getting in the way.
So here we are, lava-core is the start of the merge. Subsequent projects will slowly merge into the core. Then one day we may just get a package that is called 'lava', that ships a program called 'lava' that does useful stuff.
Android Debug Bridge (adb) installation
To run android test job, adb is common to be used.
For installing adb, you can download the SDK from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
By default, the SDK files are unpacked into a directory named android-sdk-< machine-platform >.
You can find the adb tool in < sdk >/platform-tools/.
You might want to add the location of the SDK's tools/ and platform-tools to your PATH environment variable, to provide easy access to the tools.
