A Practical Guide to Testing Wireless Smartphone by Julian Harty, Mahadev Satyanarayanan

By Julian Harty, Mahadev Satyanarayanan

Trying out functions for cell phones is tough, time-consuming, and tough to do successfully. many folks have constrained their trying out efforts to hands-on checking out of an program on a couple of actual handsets, and so they need to repeat the method each time a re-creation of the software program is able to attempt. they might pass over a few of the diversifications of real-world use, and in this case their clients are left with the disagreeable mess of a failing software on their cellphone. attempt automation may help to extend the diversity and scope of checking out, whereas decreasing the overhead of guide checking out of every model of the software program. in spite of the fact that automation isn't really a panacea, really for cellular functions, so we have to decide our try automation demanding situations correctly. This publication is meant to aid software program and try out engineers choose adequately to accomplish extra; and for this reason carry greater caliber, operating software program to clients. This Synthesis lecture offers functional recommendation in response to direct event of utilizing software program attempt automation to assist increase the checking out of quite a lot of cellular phone functions, together with the newest AJAX purposes. the point of interest is on purposes that depend upon a instant community connection to a distant server, but the rules could observe to different comparable fields and functions. we commence via explaining phrases and a few of the most important demanding situations considering trying out cellphone purposes. next chapters describe a kind of software e.g. markup, AJAX, consumer, via a comparable bankruptcy on find out how to try every one of those functions. universal attempt automation recommendations are lined in a separate bankruptcy, and at last there's a short bankruptcy on whilst to check manually. The ebook additionally includes a variety of tips and hyperlinks to additional fabric that can assist you to enhance your trying out utilizing automation competently.

Markup Languages 19 • Bold tag not supported in an anchor tag (see below). • • • • 21 chapter 3 Testing Techniques for Markup Applications In my experience the majority of automated testing for markup applications either uses HTTP requests and responses using a protocol library such as urllib or a browser-based automation library such as Selenium. Both approaches are useful and can be effective. A web browser can be used as a simple way to quickly view the content returned for a given xHTML device.

Measuring the end-user experience is much more involved and outside the scope of the current material. 6 Implementing Rule-Based Tests In our experience, certain patterns of xHTML cause problems for particular phone models. Sometimes the issue is size of the response, for others tags such as the bold tag cause the contents to be rendered poorly, some handsets have limitations on the image formats they can handle, one phone even makes the text larger when the tag specifies the font size should be small, etc.

We can therefore design our automated test to use patterns based on the hierarchy and/or the content of responses. Two effective pattern-matching methods are: using regular expressions and using hierarchical path navigation (for instance with XPATH expressions). The examples later on provide examples of both methods. 3 EXAMPLE PROBLEMS Here is a summary of typical problems that affect markup applications. Cookie and Transcoder issues may adversely affect other types of mobile wireless application and are generally “bad news” for those applications.
