Easy Black-box testing with Robotium for Android

Learn how Robotium works with standard Android instrumentation tests, including details on how it can be used in real life. Robotium is a test framework created to make it easy to write powerful and robust automatic black-box test cases for Android applications. Test case developers can write function, system and acceptance test scenarios, spanning multiple Android activities.

Before Robotium, instrumentation tests on the Android platform had to be too tightly coupled with the tested application’s implementation. It is now possible to write true Black-box tests, with no previous information about how the application under test is implemented. The tests we create in this session focus on what the screen looks like, and what the user really does, rather than individual component id’s or ordering within the UI layout.
