      Jenkins 2.5 and 1.651.2
      Android Emulator Plugin 2.14.1

    Description

      Android Emulator plugin fails to correctly shutdown the emulator started for the test, but this fact is not logged in console output:

      [android] Starting Android emulator
      [android] Erasing existing emulator data...

      This leads to

      1. emulator processes continue consuming CPU and RAM
      2. next emulator start fails due to resources remains locked

      The root cause is Google emulator console behavior change: now you MUST authenticate in emulator console before you can issue 'kill' command. This change was introduced about a week ago when Android SDK 25.1.6 was released.

      But the Android Emulator plugin can't handle authentication required - it simply issues 'kill' command to the emulator console, and the emulator silently refuses this unauthorized command.

      Talking to emulators leaved running by plugin "by-hands" via telnet(1) - shutdowns them successfully:

      As I can see, lines 584-586 of "src/main/java/hudson/plugins/android_emulator/AndroidEmulator.java" must be patched to issue 'auth' command before 'kill'

              // Stop emulator process
              log(emu.logger(), Messages.STOPPING_EMULATOR());
              boolean killed = emu.sendCommand("kill");
