More than one hardware device on one Jenkins server should be possible.

    Description

      We run our Android unit tests on a Nexus S and want to plug in another one to run more than one test build at once. We've not discovered a way to enable two executors which will properly distribute the test builds.

      The current error message is:

      • waiting for device -
        error: more than one device and emulator

      We'd have to specify the free device via "adb -s" but not find a way to properly automate this, except writing our own bash scripts. An official way to do this would greatly help us.

          Sorry, I'm not clear on how you're using the plugin – for the most part, this plugin only relates to launching Android emulators.
          Are you talking about the "Install Android package" feature?

          Managing a pool of available Android devices and "lending" them to Jenkins jobs would be useful, but that's probably not so straight forward, and better suited to a separate plugin.

          I believe Testdroid Cloud/Server does something similar to this, also based on Jenkins.

          Is your current bash-scripted method of automation available somewhere to see?

          Closing this as it's old and unclear.

          Maybe the https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/External+Resource+Dispatcher plugin is a better fit.
