caching – How to clear cache on Eclipse Android Emulator

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

i was wondering if there is a fast way to clear cache on a running Eclipse Android Emulator, apart from shutting it down and starting it after.

For the time being, caching proved to be a major drawback for me, since am new to Android and it eventually lead me to wrong conclussions about my code…

Thank you.

How to&Answers:

You can clear cache / data per application from settings (Applications -> manage applications). You can also uninstall your application from there which will cause everything to be cleared. This of course only clears data that your application is creating.

Answer:

Through the AVD manager when you ‘start’ a virtual device, check ‘clear user data’ before you click the launch button. This will clear the cache and reset the emulator back to its original state.
