Post by flashmark » Wed Nov 12, 2014 12:47 pm

Hi,

How do I install(also uninstall) .apk in android emulator before starting test execution ?
Before starting test execution, I want to install latest version of .apk file which is available in my hard drive.
Do you any solution to this?

Hello flashmark,

You can instrument and deploy your APK file using Instrumentation Wizard from the command line.

For example:

Code: Select all

Ranorex.Instrumentation.exe /p:"android" /d:"MyPhone" /a:"PathToAPK\MyApp.apk"
The Instrumentation Wizard executable is stored within the “bin”-folder of the installation folder of Ranorex. Usually, C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 5.2\Bin

Further information about using the Instrumentation Wizard from the command line can be found here:
http://www.ranorex.com/support/user-gui ... html#c4643

In order to uninstall applications from your Android device you could use the Android Debug Bridge (adb) tool, which can be found within the Android tools of your Ranorex installation: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 5.2\Bin\RxEnv\Android\tools.

A comprehensive documentation about the Android Debug Bridge can be found here:
https://developer.android.com/tools/help/adb.html

The command line instructions could be called within a batch-file or could be executed from a CI*-tool such as Jenkins in order to automate the steps.
* Continues Integration

Hope this information helps.

Regards,
Robert
