Agitar Announces Support for Android JUnit Testing

Remarkably High Unit Level Test Coverage Made Possible Through Advanced Mocking

JANUARY 21, 2011 - CRANSTON, RI - Agitar Technologies has announced support of JUnit test generation for Android environments via their leading JUnit generation and software ‘Agitation’ solution, AgitarOne.

AndroidAgitarOne-generated JUnit tests exercise the unit-level functionality of user classes, and its mocking technology, which generates the range of values needed to achieve high coverage of user code, has achieved coverage levels well over 80%, the minimum target of AgitarOne.

Android projects are prone to frequent modifications due to changes in technology and the extending of applications to additional environments.  A set of JUnit tests generated by AgitarOne provides a safety net for such Android projects by helping to detect unintended consequences of code modifications.

“When we began investigating the possibility of Android support, we were pleased with how easily AgitarOne was able to adapt to the Android framework and produce such a high level of coverage”, said Dale Brenneman, VP of Technology at Agitar Technologies.  “Our Resellers, particularly in the Pacific Rim, assisted us greatly as it was their customers who had the initial requirement for JUnit test generation for Android projects.  We know all other Android projects will benefit as well.”

AgitarOne release 5.2 supports these Android-related capabilities from the Eclipse client plug-in.  A user can both generate JUnit tests for an Android project and select to execute those tests.  Command line and Continuous Integration capabilities also exist.
