Android Debug Bridge

For the first time I saw “adb”, I thought it stands for android-db. Well, I was wrong. Belongs to Android Developer’s web, …

Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command line tool that lets you communicate with an emulator instance or connected Android device. It facilitates a variety of device actions, such as installing and debugging apps, and it provides access a Unix shell that you can use to run a variety of commands on an emulator or connected device. It is a client-server program that includes three components:

  • A client, which sends commands. The client runs on your development machine. You can invoke a client from a command-line terminal by issuing an adb command.
  • A daemon, which runs commands on a device. The daemon runs as a background process on each emulator or device instance.
  • A server, which manages communication between the client and the daemon. The server runs as a background process on your development machine.
