How to perform mobile testing with the Appium open source software testing tool.
It is becoming more and more challenging to test mobile apps on different devices, with different screen sizes, running different operating systems. During the development of a mobile app, we can easily verify and test the app on a mobile simulator or emulator.
This talk shares the mistakes made in the initial software testing phase while creating automated tests for mobile apps using Appium, the reasons behind those mistakes, and the solutions which helped to reduce Appium tests execution time by 50%.
This presentation shows how Appium, an open source test automation tool, is playing a significant role in bringing the extreme fast changes to the market in a real-time banking digital environment.
The shift towards mobile platforms is a strong trend currently and Android is the most widely adopted mobile OS with an estimated market share above 80% in 2014. You should naturally test all the apps developed for Android and a large number of open source testing tools and test automation frameworks have been developed to achieve this goal.
Appium is an open source test automation framework for use with native, hybrid and mobile web apps on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS, Android, or Windows SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser (Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in ‘Browser’ app on Android).
Software testing is an important and tricky topic for mobile app development. With multiple operating systems versions and devices manufacturers, it is very time consuming to cover all possible combinations. This is why it is recommended automate testing with a parallel perspective rather than performing tests sequentially. In this article, Bakir Jusufbegović explains how to implement parallel mobile testing for iOS devices with Appium.
