Test automation, very useful for all platforms, is crucial for mobile. Shorter time to market demands quicker development and testing cycles and the only way to reduce timelines without giving up much of the regression tests is automation. Manual data entry speed is much slower o mobile devices than on the PC, so automation comes handy. You are likely to need to test your native app or mobile website on several platforms, so having a script that will do it saves you time and allows human test engineers to focus on tasks that require analysis rather than repetitive test execution. Yet at the same time, mobile poses a number of automation challenges: the platforms are diverse and not easily accessible, native apps and mobile websites frequently should be tested in conjunction with other platforms, and more. The course focuses on analyzing different methods of mobile test automation in light of these challenges, and highlights their advantages and weaknesses; this includes a discussion of tool demos that emphasize creative uses of mobile test automation. Then we proceed to discuss possible models for mobile test automation architecture and integrating it into your overall automation. The class ends in a group project of defining the mobile testing approach for a mobile app or website.
