In computer science, a Monkey test (aka. Mark Testing) is an automated test that runs with no specific test in mind. The monkey in this case is the producer of any input. For example, a monkey test can enter random strings into text boxes to ensure handling of all possible user input or provide garbage files to check for loading routines that have blind faith in their data. The test monkey is technically known to conduct random testing, which is in the category of black-box testing. The name 'monkey' comes from the adage that thousand monkeys at a thousand typewriters will eventually type out the entire works of Shakespeare. Cf. the Infinite monkey theorem.
