Join Chiu-Ki Chan for an in-depth discussion in this video App: Greetings, part of Advanced Android Espresso Testing.
- We want our tests to be repeatable,…meaning that every time we run them,…we want the same results…as long as the app did not change.…To do that we need to make…our test environment hermetic.…A hermetic environment is sealed from external dependencies.…The best way to understand that is to go through an example.…I have prepared the project in exercise files.…Download it, and import it into Android Studio.…
It doesn't matter where you put your project.…I put mine under projects, hermetic.…If Android Studio asks you to upgrade Gradle,…click, Do not remind me again.…Press Command + O to open MainActivity.…Here in onCreate on line 13, we can see that…we figure out what is the time now…by instantiating DateTime.…
Then on line 15, depending on the time of the day,…we greet the user with either, Good morning,…Good afternoon, Good evening, or Good night.…This is not hermetic because it has an external dependency,…namely, the time of the day.…Imagine writing a test for this app.…What should greeting view say?…If we write the test in the afternoon,…
