Playing in the Sandbox

 You know where we are going to be this week? At Google I/O Developer Conference, June 27-29 in San Francisco! There, we will announce the commercial availability of our end-to-end automated testing solution to Android mobile app developers, Testdroid.

 We have been selected to attend Google I/O in the Developer Sandbox, a demo area where developers who have built applications based on technologies and products are featured at I/O. So come watch us demo Testdroid and play with us in the sandbox.

 Testdroid provides the first fully automated, scalable testing platform for Android application developers to test in real time in a matter of minutes. This helps everyone from one-man game developers to large corporations developing mobile Android apps, so we hope to see you all in San Francisco!

Recording from WebView

Hi all,

I would like to present how to implement WebView in your application for good cooperation with Testdroid Recorder.

First issue is, that we can’t handle any events from WebView, if you don’t use own WebClient and don’t override method shouldOverrideUrlLoading with command view.loadUrl(url) For example:

[sourcecode language=”java”]
webView.setWebViewClient(new MyWebViewClient());

private class MyWebViewClient extends WebViewClient {
public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
return false; //it doesn’t matter true or false for recording

If you override this method websites are opened directly in WebView, not in default browser. Anyway, all what we are able to record from WebView are clicks on screen (x, y), drags, send keys and enter texts. I hope this help you testing your application with WebViews.
