There seems to be some confusion of how to setup an IDE for Android MonkeyRunner, even from the book author of Android Application Test.  Monkeyrunner is a Jython API setup to interact with the android framework at the ADB level.  That means that you have to choose the jython interpreter when setting up your IDE to run the moneyrunner scripts and edit them so that you get access to all the apis, etc. Hmm, I wonder how many other errors I will find in the Android Application Testing book?
