Android Connection Methods

To make a connection to an Android system under test (SUT) with Eggplant's testing tools, you need to have a VNC server on the device. You have different connection options with the Eggplant range, and you'll need to choose the best one for your specific devices and testing needs.

Android Gateway

Android Gateway enables a VNC connection exclusively for Eggplant Functional for test automation of Android devices. You can download Android Gateway from the Eggplant Mobile downloads page. It works with devices running Android 4.1.1 and later. For additional information about setting up and using Android Gateway, see Getting Started with Android Gateway.

Mobile WebDriver for Android

You can perform object-based testing on Android devices using WebDriver commands and functions in Eggplant Functional using Android Gateway to create connections.
