Mdc2010 Automated Mobile Testing Mdc2010 Automated Mobile Testing Presentation Transcript

  • Automated Mobile Testing Nilesh Maheshwari Business Head – Mobile & Wireless
  • Agenda
    • Challenges
    • Test Automation
    • Unit Testing Tools
    • Benefits of Test Automation
    • Criteria for Test Automation
    • Limitation of Test Automation
    • Mobile Test Automation tools- Comparison
  • Where do we stand now….
  • Smartphone Software Development Scenario Features Time Cost Quality is compromised Compromise Balance with Features and Time-to-market Balance with Time-to-market and Cost
  • Generic Challenges
    • Diversity of device / Platforms
    • Hardware configuration
    • Mounting application complexity
    • Network related challenges
    • Accelerating software development schedules
  • Technical Challenges
    • Large amount of Tests in all testing scope
    • API Level test execution in target devices or emulator
    • Verification and UI Control in testing phases of application
    • System’s special feature requires flexible tools and customization
  • What is the solution for this?
  • Test Automation
    • Test Automation is the use of strategies, tools
    • and artifacts that reduce the need of human
    • involvement on repetitive tasks.
    • Supports – Unit, Functional & Navigation
    • testing.
  • How test automation works?
    • Application specific Test case writing
    • Conversion of test cases into scripts
    • (Write / Record)
    • Execution of Test Scripts on devices
    • Unattended test cycles
  • Benefits : Test Automation
    • Reliable
    • Repeatable
    • Programmable
    • Comprehensive
    • Reusable
    • Increased productivity.
    • Superior application quality.
    • Cost Reduction
  • What about Unit Testing?
  • Unit Testing
    • JMUnit / B-Unit is a member of the xUnit family suitable for testing Java ME / BlackBery applications. JMUnit test-cases can directly run on device or Emulator.
    • CppUnit is a unit testing framework module for C++, described as a C++ port of JUnit. The library is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License.
    • OCUnit is a testing framework for Objective C in the Mac OS X. With OCUnit, testing becomes integrated with development.  
  • Can we test all mobile applications through test automation?
  • Selection Criteria
  • Major Constraints
    • Increasing Complexity of mobile application
    • In-Depth functional testing
    • Testing device features used in app i.e. Camera , accelerometer
    • LBS & Bluetooth
    • Call & VoiceMail scenario
    • Multimedia, Barcode, NFC Apps
    • Games, AI applications
  • nanoVNC Demo
  • Available Tools
    • TestQuest
    • DeviceAnywhere
    • Perfecto mobile
    • Eggplant
    • NanoVNC
  • Comparison Matrix
  • Comparison Matrix Factors Sub-Category TestQuest DeviceAnywhere Perfecto mobile Eggplant nanoVNC Performance # Real Time device experience # Network problem, requires massive bandwidth to support smooth flow of testing and script recording on a remote device through the internet # Network problem, requires massive bandwidth to support smooth flow of testing and script recording on a remote device through the internet. # Real Time device experience # Performance VNC Server and bandwidth connectivity dependent # Real Time device experience # Minor latency issues # Performance Wi-Fi connectivity dependent Other Comments # TestQuest Pro verifies the system under test’s (SUT) operation in a manner 100% identical to that of manual tester by becoming a “virtual user.” # It interacts with the SUT through the system’s human interfaces such as the screen, pointing devices, keyboard, etc. # It work on Direct-To-Device™, DeviceAnywhere Test Center enables developers around the world to connect to and control mobile devices – over the Internet – for all application and content testing needs # The Perfecto Mobile system is a hardware and software solution. Mobile handsets are mounted on cradles and they connect to the Perfecto Mobile system through their data ports. # Users access the handsets via a web-based UI. # eggPlant is a low-overhead, non-invasive black-box test and process automation tool. Since it does not reside on the system-under-test and is technology agnostic, it can test in many situations that other tools cannot. By using image capture and advanced search techniques, most ui changes are not a problem. # This method involves using the open source VNC Robot and a VNC server running on a mobile device.VNC robot is used to connect to the VNC server running on the device and can then be applied to record scripts. # nanoVNC works in conjunction with a VNC client, it displays the phone’s screen in a window on the PC, and forwards keystrokes and mouse movements from the PC to the phone.
