Going Mobile: The New Challenges for Testers
Mobile device manufacturers face many challenges bringing quality products to market. Most testing methodologies were created for data processing, client/server, and Web products. As such, they often fail to address key areas of interest to mobile applications-usability, security, and stability. Wayne Hom discusses approaches you can use to transform requirements into usability guides and use cases into test cases to ensure maximum test coverage. He discusses automation frameworks that support multiple platforms to reduce test cycle times and increase test coverage, while measuring and reporting at the different phases of the software lifecycle. Wayne presents case studies to illustrate how to reduce test cycles by up to 75 percent. He demonstrates solutions that have helped providers of third-party applications and services manage testing cycles for multiple mobile device releases.
