Unit Testing Framework for MonoDroid

Currently MonoDroid (or “Mono for Android”) is lacking a unit testing framework. Since Xamarin (the guys behind MonoDroid) enable us to use C# on almost every platform it would be nice to be able to reuse C# unit tests written for Visual Studio on other platforms, such as Android.

This is the goal behind the MonoDroid Unit Testing Framework which can be obtained here:

Creating an Application class in Mono for Android

Android provides an Application class.

Base class for those who need to maintain global application state.

Here’s how to create such a class in Mono for Android:

[Application]  // <-- Attribute required
class MyApp : Application {
  // Required constructor
  public MyApp(IntPtr javaReference, JniHandleOwnership transfer) 
    : base(javaReference, transfer) { }

  // Test method - not required
  public override void OnCreate() {

Note: There can only be one such class in an Android application.
