Basic Use of the Monkey
You can launch the Monkey using a command line on your development machine or from a script.
Because the Monkey runs in the emulator/device environment, you must launch it from a shell in
that environment. You can do this by prefacing
adb shell to each command,
or by entering the shell and entering Monkey commands directly.
The basic syntax is:
$ adb shell monkey [options] <event-count>
With no options specified, the Monkey will launch in a quiet (non-verbose) mode, and will send
events to any (and all) packages installed on your target. Here is a more typical command line,
which will launch your application and send 500 pseudo-random events to it:
$ adb shell monkey -p your.package.name -v 500
