 Abstract
Using the intent of the Android application, an application can execute other application`s components. However, if interaction between these components are not processed normally, such problems as incorrect component execution and unhandled system broadcast may be occurred. In this paper, to generate test scenarios for inter application interaction, a testing approach is proposed using a merged intent list and a single merged diagram. The proposed method can effectively be carried out to check the abnormal interaction among the applications which was not considered in existing testing approaches.
