This section is aimed at developers, or test writers, providing guidance on test execution, as well as writing tests. The instructions are split into two broad categories of tests:
- Tests executing directly through Tradefed.
- Tests executing in the context of a suite, for example the Android Compatibility Test Suite (CTS).
We detail some features that are applicable to both suite and non-suite tests, for example:
- Automatic Retries for tests.
We also provide some generic end-to-end examples about how to run some of the more common test types, such as:
- Execute the instrumentation tests from an existing APK.
The end-to-end examples above do not require a local checkout of Android. You can simply download Tradefed and use them directly.
