I assume a build peer will look at this too, but is this a good way to get the ANDROID binary? Do we already define a variable to it?

Before we start using this app for tests, we need to use a local URL. We aren't allowed to use external URLs in tests.

Add a new line?

Review of attachment 821092 [details] [diff] [review]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

This doesn't appear to include the relevant ANT files, nor the referenced Android resources.

On a more serious note, I'm confused as to why this would live in embedding/.  I see no precedent for platform-specific libraries in embedding, and it doesn't agree with my understanding of what embedding was -- but I wasn't around when embedding on Android was real.  I think this should live under mobile/android/; in future we should build an APK for this project using the build system; and we should run a tiny instrumentation or Robotium test suite against that APK on buildbots.  Doing this in embedding/ is, of course, possible -- but makes less sense to me.

I know this makes no difference, but why are we sending people to MIT?  Shouldn't we be sending folks to some neat Mozilla property?

Is it the case that the |create lib-project| above always creates libs/ and res/?  If not, guard with mkdir_deps.  Or NSINSTALL -D.

All of that is generated by the "android create project..." line in the Makefile

This is exactly what the embedding directory has been used for traditionally. This is very analogous to WinEmbed, a stand alone app at embeds gecko.

It very specifically should not be in mobile/android in that mobile/ is an application directory.

I would like this to create the basic geckoview test for bug 921664, but that is decidedly step-next

This looks like two spaces (a little hard to tell in splinter) but should be leading tabs.  Also, nit two spaces between $(ANDROID)  create.

If the following is not true, please respond: this works because "android create project" recreates project.properties.
