There are many mobile network simulator tools available in the market which allow you to test your application in different network conditions. But to see what the users experience in reality we need to test how our application behaves in a perfect network or a slow network.
Use Network Emulators to test real network conditions
1. Network emulators are one of the best mobile application testing solutions that would assess the impact of network variation on a mobile application’s functionality in a controlled lab environment.
2. Network emulators are perfect solutions for creating different types of mixed or complex networks.
3. There is no need of the cable, aerial masks, mobile devices and corporate networks for achieving the best coverage.
Also it contend with mobile Webkit, which supports touch events.
Performance Testing is the process of measuring a system’s performance by increasing the demand on the system. It is performed to ascertain a system’s behavior under normal as well as the estimated peak load conditions.
JMeter is a segment of Apache Open Source project. It is an application which can be used to perform functional testing and load testing. It is designed as pure Java application and can be used to perform load testing of any type of web application including the ones written in .NET, PHP etc.
Software testing is a process in which investigation is conducted to provide the information to the stakeholders about the quality of the product or service which is under test. Software testing provides an objective, independent view of the software so as to allow the business to understand the risks of software implementation.
There is always a big irony with respect to quality. Quality is something which is not assured by the quality assurance team. It is the development team that assures quality. The customer experience is totally dependent upon each line of code written by the developer.
Robotium is a “Black-Box” testing tool that simulates and automates user interaction such as clicking, touching, entering text and any other gesture which is possible on a touch device. It is a test structure which was created to ease the writing of powerful and robust automatic black-box test cases for Android applications.
With its support, developers who create test cases can write system, function, and acceptance test scenarios, covering multiple Android activities. It provides full support for Activities, Dialogs and Context Menus. Robotium is an open-source tool, so it can be used by individuals as well as Enterprises.
CI(Continuous Integration) is a software development practice that immediately tests and reports the isolated changes when they are added to the code base.
CI provides quick feedback so whenever a defect is introduced into the code base, it identifies and corrects it as early as possible. Here, each team member needs to submit work on regular basis and each significant change for a build is to be conducted.
Jenkins is an open source tool which is simple, extensible, and user friendly. It performs continuous integration and provides CI services for application development. Its basic functionality is to execute a list of predefined steps. It continuously builds and tests the software keeping the track of execution and status of jobs, so the users and team members can regularly obtain the most latest stable code.
It supports SCM tools such as CVS, Git, AccuRev and so on and can build Freestyle, Apache Ant, and Apache Maven-based projects. Plugins’ concept makes Jenkins more attractive and easy to use.
