What is mobile automated testing


mobile automated testing is the process of transforming human driven testing behavior into machine execution. Through carefully designed test cases, the machine automatically operates on the application according to the execution steps of the test cases, and then outputs the results for comparison by the testers. mobile automated testing can greatly save manpower, time, and hardware resources, and improve testing efficiency.


For software with relatively complete and mature functions, when a new version is released, most of the features and interfaces are similar or completely identical to the previous version, and these features are most suitable for mobile automated testing.


The advantages of mobile automation testing


For programmers, regression testing can be conducted before submitting code, which can improve code quality and accelerate code launch speed.


2. mobile automated testing can easily and automatically complete tedious manual testing steps such as installation/uninstallation, startup/running, UI adaptation, etc., saving a lot of time. On the premise of accurately writing test scripts, it can help testers complete more requirements.


3. Scripts and frameworks are generally common on iOS and Android platforms, and the same test script is applicable to all Android models, allowing for quick compatibility testing.


4. It can simulate the generation of data. Generate some simple data through repeated operations. Can save screenshots, output logs, and output error messages.


5. It can run for a long time and ensure the accuracy of data, avoiding human errors in manual testing.


6. Android can be tested continuously through local area networks, multiple devices, scripts, and multiple cases.


7. Comprehensive diagnosis of application performance can be carried out with the help of Perspective Treasure. For example, if a user provides an APK/IPA installation package with the perspective treasure SDK installed, a comprehensive test of the user's APP can be conducted, producing a insightful and detailed report that includes crashes, memory leaks, network monitoring, and UI performance testing. At present, many customers of Cloud Intelligence need to first bind the Perspective SDK before product release, and then evaluate whether to use it after testing on platforms such as Testin, Baidu Yunce, and Tencent Youce.


8. No need to recompile the APP.
