Take an in-depth look at using the Android Espresso library to write repeatable Android UI tests. Explore advanced topics including intents, hermetic test environment, and IdlingResource.
- [Chiu-Ki] Welcome to Advanced Android Espresso Testing. I am Chiu-Ki Chan, a Google developer expert in Android. Testing is essential in delivering high quality software. In Android, we need to test both the logic and the UI of the app. Espresso is a great library for UI testing but it can be tricky to use it to write repeatable UI tests. In this course, we will look into three scenarios.
Testing a multi-activity app with incoming and out going intents. Creating a hermetic test environment with dependency injection and mocking. And implementing idling resource to provide custom synchronization. These advanced techniques will help you go beyond the basics, and write repeatable UI tests for complex apps. Are you ready? Let's get started.
- Incoming and outgoing intents
- How intents are used
- Dependency injection
- Why extract dependencies?
- Mockito and Dagger
