Is there any Unit testing framework for Andriod Code ?


Android has JUnit built in, accompanied by a fancy "instrumentation" system to allow you to control activities from test code.

Well, yes - it does have JUnit built in. But the documentation on how to use it is lacking. I ran into some initial difficulties figuring out how to instantiate a test bundle so I could test the onCreate() methods. Does your book offer any guidance on unit testing Android activities, or do you know of anywhere that provides adequate documentation?

The book being given away here does not. My upcoming Advanced Android book will have a chapter on testing, both using the built-in framework and how to test without it. Subscribers already have access to Version 0.6 of the Advanced Android book, though the testing chapter will not be ready for a few more weeks.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
