F12 – 804: Mobile Testing: Tools, Techniques & Target Devices

Track: Mobile Application Testing

The nature of the mobile industry is in constant flux with new devices, browser and operating system versions being released constantly. Mobile testers have to keep device, browser and OS combinations in mind with multiple IDEs and testing tools to come up with risk assessment and test approaches. Usage of built-in SDK utilities, vendor tools and command line goodies are explored in this session. Testing tool options for both native and mobile web applications with ideas on what selection criteria should be used are showcased with recommendations. The required skill level of mobile application testers is slightly higher. For instance, available testing tools expect access to application source code with basic knowledge of Java/Objective C for native apps testing; understanding of ecosystems (Eclipse /Android SDK, Xcode/iOS SDK etc); and knowledge of browsers and different rendering engines with their effect on how pages are rendered is essential. This session will provide a framework to manage all these dimensions of mobile testing.
