Android LEB Validation and Test Suite

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2011-04-28

This discussion will focus on LEB validation and test suites. Topics will include: Monkey, CTS, Monkeyrunner, unit-tests, continuous integration merge tests.

Discussion will include:
1. Now we have basic, monkey, 0xbench, cts, on the going, What more validation should we have for Android?
2. The requirement for validation framework on Android.

Possible Action Items from the discussion:

1. Integrate Monkey.

2. Integrate Monkey Runner and tests that use it.

3. Integrate tests from partners.

4. Create and integrate low-level tests.

5. Create and integrate native-level tests.

6. Create a list if things we need to validate and test.

7. Create a way to summarize and communicate test results across platforms.
7.1 Create a visualization mock-up for Paul.

8. Export tests for local execution.

9. Write tests using LTT and perf.
9.1 Integrate LTT on Android.

10. Run CTS
10.1 Break CTS up for debug and test parallelization.

11. Define and setup peripherals we will test with.

Whiteboard

Overall Goal:
The goal of this Blueprint is to enhance validation for all builds. This includes adding more tests, making tests run more efficiently, communicating test results and making test modification easy. Linaro has an opportunity to shine with our validation offering as most community projects fail to run or document the quality of their builds.
