Test package for different flavors in Android Studio

I am experimenting flavors on an application in androidstudio. I have to write different test classes for the flavors, as I have different class files for the flavors. But I wonder if there is any option to specify test packages for each flavor in build.gradle. Here is my build.gradle for reference. I use 0.4.6 version of AndroidStudio.

apply plugin: 'android'

android {
compileSdkVersion 19
buildToolsVersion "19.0.1"

defaultConfig {
minSdkVersion 8
targetSdkVersion 19
testPackageName "com.example.tests"

productFlavors {

Paid {

packageName "com.example.paid"

Free {

packageName ""

sourceSets {
main {
java.srcDirs = ['src/main/java']
res.srcDirs = ['src/main/res']

Paid {
java.srcDirs = ['src/Paid/java']
res.srcDirs = ['src/Paid/res']

Free {
java.srcDirs = ['src/Free/java']
res.srcDirs = ['src/Free/res']

signingConfigs {

releaseConfig {

storeFile file('filename');
keyAlias "aliasname";
keyPassword "aliaspassword";


buildTypes {

release {

runProguard true
debuggable false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.txt'
signingConfig signingConfigs.releaseConfig
packageNameSuffix ".release"


debug {

runProguard false
debuggable true
packageNameSuffix ".debug"


dependencies {

compile project(':androidViewPagerIndicator_library')
compile ''


Answer Source

From the documentation

Testing multi-flavors project is very similar to simpler projects.

The androidTest sourceset is used for common tests across all flavors, while each flavor can also have its own tests.

As mentioned above, sourceSets to test each flavor are created:

  • android.sourceSets.androidTestFlavor1
  • android.sourceSets.androidTestFlavor2

So, just as you should have now 'free' and 'paid' folders with code specific for each flavor, you can add 'androidTestFree' and 'androidTestPaid' folders where you you can add test cases specific to each one of your flavors.
