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.
Eggplant Functional includes a built-in VNC server for Android devices. Use this to test Android devices that you've connected directly to the Eggplant Functional machine. The automatic Android VNC server works with Android version 4.1 and later.
Android Gateway enables a VNC connection exclusively for Eggplant Functional. It works with devices running Android 4.1.1 and later. For additional information about setting up and using Android Gateway, see Indirect Android Connections.
Mobile WebDriver for Android
You can perform object-based testing on Android devices using WebDriver commands and functions in Eggplant Functional. You'll need to download and configure additional components to do this. Mobile WebDriver testing requires Eggplant Functional 18.1.2 and later.
