I'm using the Android monkey test to test my android apps, it's works for my app, and is very cool. but I'd like to test an application activity in specific, how could i do that?
today I'm testing all app with:
$ adb shell monkey -p my.package -c android.intent.category.HOME -c android.intent.category.DEFAULT -v 500 -s "a random number"
With Android monkey test i cannot test a specific activity, but with Android monkey runner i can do python scripts to simulate a monkey test, so i did a python script open the my activity and init the monkey test :)
#! /usr/bin/env monkeyrunner from com.android.monkeyrunner import MonkeyRunner, MonkeyDevice from random import randint print "get device" device = MonkeyRunner.waitForConnection() package = 'my.packaget' activity = 'my.package.activity' runComponent = package + '/' + activity device.startActivity(component=runComponent) #use commands like device.touch and device.drag to simulate a navigation and open my activity #with your activity opened start your monkey test print "start monkey test" for i in range(1, 1000): #here i go emulate only simple touchs, but i can emulate swiper keyevents and more... :D device.touch(randint(0, 1000), randint(0, 800), 'DOWN_AND_UP') print "end monkey test"
save teste.py and run
$ monkeyrunner teste.py
