Android Unit testing in Android with JUnit suggest change

Creating Local unit tests

Place your test classes here: /src/test/<pkg_name>/

Example test class

public class ExampleUnitTest {
    @Test
    public void addition_isCorrect() throws Exception {
        int a=4, b=5, c;
        c = a + b;
        assertEquals(9, c); // This test passes
        assertEquals(10, c); //Test fails
    }
}

Breakdown

public class ExampleUnitTest {
  ...
}

The test class, you can create several test classes and place them inside the test package.

@Test
public void addition_isCorrect() {
   ...
}

The test method, several test methods can be created inside a test class.

Notice the annotation @Test.

The Test annotation tells JUnit that the public void method to which it is attached can be run as a test case.

There are several other useful annotations like @Before, @After etc. This page would be a good place to start.

assertEquals(9, c); // This test passes
assertEquals(10, c); //Test fails

These methods are member of the Assert class. Some other useful methods are assertFalse(), assertNotNull(), assertTrue etc. Here’s an elaborate Explanation.


Annotation Information for JUnit Test:

@Test: The Test annotation tells JUnit that the public void method to which it is attached can be run as a test case. To run the method, JUnit first constructs a fresh instance of the class then invokes the annotated method.

@Before: When writing tests, it is common to find that several tests need similar objects created before they can run. Annotating a public void method with @Before causes that method to be run before the Test method.

@After: If you allocate external resources in a Before method you need to release them after the test runs. Annotating a public void method with @After causes that method to be run after the Test method. All @After methods are guaranteed to run even if a Before or Test method throws an exception
