As many automated test input generation tools for Android need to instrument the system or the app, they cannot be used in some scenarios such as compatibility testing and malware analysis. We introduce DroidBot, a lightweight UI-guided test input generator, which is able to interact with an Android app on almost any device without instrumentation. The key technique behind DroidBot is that it can generate UI-guided test inputs based on a state transition model generated on-the-fly, and allow… CONTINUE READING
