The book is about Core Spring and doesn't cover Spring Android project as far as I have seen so far. But the Spring Android project is very small with a few classes. The main is the RestTemplate to make Restful Web Services calls from the device.

Unfortunately, it is an extreme pain to do Android Test, well sort of. The main caveat is that if your class has any Android classes in it, the test has to run on the emulator. This is because the .jar file you have in the IDE just has stubs for all the classes so the code can compile and has absolutely no implementation code in it.

I also find that Android tests only work with things like Activity etc for an Android app, but not if you happen to building a library like I am.
