Selendroid: Automated Testing for Android Training Course


Selendroid is an open-source test automation framework for Android devices. It can be used to test native applications, hybrid applications and mobile websites running on real devices as well as emulators. Based on the Selenium Webdriver client API, it supports full integration with existing Selenium frameworks. Selendroid supports hot plugging of hardware devices and can be integrated as a node in Selenium Grid for large-scale parallel testing. It is compatible with the JSON Wire Protocol.

This instructor-led, live training introduces Selendroid, the Selenium framework, and walks participants through the setup, configuration and execution of automation tests in a live hands-on test environment.
