Automatizing Android Unit and User Interface Testing

In this paper we describe our efforts moving towards automatized testing in Android application development. With sophisticated combination of Android development tools and Perl scripts, we have au- tomatized parts of the testing produce. Using the built system, unit tests are built and run automatically each time when a new build is created. In addition, we are automatizing user interface testing using Android uiautomator tool. In this automatization process we encountered sev- eral technical issues, for which Android development tools do not offer ready-made solutions, and we had to implement solutions for those.
