Steps to install MonkeyTalk Android Agent:

1. Open your android project in eclipse.

2. Convert your android project in AspectJ .

*For this step you have to configure AJDT in Eclipse by following steps:

Open Eclipse >>Go to help  menu >> Install New Software >> Click on Add

Then fill the fields in ‘Add Repository’ window

Name: AJDT

Location: http://download.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/37/update

Click on ok. *

3. Create a folder in your android project named as “libs”,  if you don’t already have one.

4. Copy the MonkeyTalk-agent.jar file in libs folder.

* MonkeyTalk-agent.jar can be found in the “agents” folder in the MonkeyTalk package you downloaded earlier. The exact name of the jar might vary depending on the version, but it should always start with “MonkeyTalk-agent”.

5. Now add this MonkeyTalk jar file to aspect path:

Right click on MonkeyTalk-agent.jar

Go to  AspectJ Tools

Click on  Add to Aspectpath

6. Update your AndroidManifest.xml to include the following two permissions:

  • android.permission.INTERNET
  • android.permission.GET_TASKS

<uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.GET_TASKS” />

<uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.INTERNET” />

*You can find Androidmanifest.xml file under res folder of your android project.*

7. Update the project properties (right-click on the project > Properties > Java Build Path), select the Order and Export tab, and check the checkbox next to the AspectJ Runtime Library to export it.

8. Deploy your application to an Android device or emulator.

Right click on Android project

Choose “Run as” option and then “Android Application”

    Hi Your postings are very much helpful, especially for beginners.
    If you post example for running Android Monkeytalk Scripts in commandline using ANT, it would be very much helpful.

    Thanks in advance
