To continue my monkey question I am looking for a way to generate Web traffic on a device (not emulator) running Android. The unit under test is not the browser but lower communication layers of the device, so any way to generate simulated web traffic will suffice. I understand that selenium has an Android version- has anybody used it ?

    why is this a separate question from your original one? I'm confused by your statement that you don't want to test the browser, but lower layers, followed by the request for advice on Selenium - could you give an example of something you want to achieve?

  • I am testing a communication stack (hardware, drivers Etc.), we want to test it under real life scenarios.
