Ranorex with MonoDroid

Post by rrojas » Mon Dec 24, 2012 2:42 pm

Hi,

I'm currently evaluating Ranorex for testing with Android mobile apps. Our development group is using MonoDevelop for cross-platform development. I began the eval by testing a simple Android app created in Java under Eclipse and all ran fine using an emulator. I then moved on to one of our apps built under Mono. I used the Ranorex Instrumentation Wizard to instrument a release signed apk for the app.

I'm currently receiving an error the the mscorlib.dll (viewed in logcat) cannot be found when I launch the instrumented app. It launches and runs fine prior to the instrumentation step. It seems that the instrumentation is breaking something in the apk package. I was wondering if it's been verified that Ranorex will work with MonoDroid. I'd be happy to forward the raw apk file to support if that would help.

Thanks,
Rich

Hello,

May I ask if it is possible to send your APK to us? I talked with our development team and they say that this would be the only way to assist you with the problem.

May I ask if you already solved the problem connecting Ranorex to the Android Emulator?
Please advice.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Markus (T)

Thanks for your reply - yes, I did get Ranorex connected to the Android emulator. Turned out that I wasn't aware that I needed to first launch the Ranorex service on the device. All is good with the connection now. I've sent over a Mono for Android built demo apk for your evaluation.

Many thanks,
Rich
