My android tests don't get internet access!

The subject says it all. My application gets internet access thanks to the android.permission.INTERNET permission, but my test cases don't while using the instrumentation test runner.

This means I can't test my server IO routines in my test cases. What's up?

Here's my manifest in case it helps you. Thanks!

Sorry about the lack of indents - could not get it working on short notice with this site. Thanks!

<manifest xmlns:android="" package="com.example.helloandroid" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0">

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

<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">

<uses-library android:name="android.test.runner" />

<activity android:name=".HelloAndroid" android:label="@string/app_name">

<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />



<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="2" />
<instrumentation android:name="android.test.InstrumentationTestRunner" android:targetPackage="" android:label="Qnext Redirect Tests" />

Answer 1

I've compared your manifest file with mine, and it looks about the same. Only difference is that I require minSdkVersion 3, and that I have the uses-permission after the application tag. I don't think that should make a difference.

Are you trying to run on the emulator or on a phone?

Answer 2

I had the same issue. In my case the application under test (not the test application) did not have the INTERNETpermission.
