The client who owned a learning app catering to the education sector had approached us for testing the functions and features of the mobile app. The solution for them was to use a UI testing framework to test the mobile application which had registered users for both Android and iOS mobile platforms. As we had the expertise to test the mobile using Appium automation framework, the open-source automation framework we took up the project.
The Problem Outline:
The client gave a briefing to our mobile app testing team to clarify their requirement. The task of testing all the features and fields of the mobile app was undertaken using Appium automation for apps. There is always pressure to deliver a bug-free performing mobile app, compatible with many devices being used and this makes a testing process essential and important. Our team identified the pain points in the discussion.
The client required the app to be updated with news and events regularly for the registered users of the app without any hiccups. Also for users, the tests conducted via the app for users on various topics are to evaluate users and the app should be able to reassign further tests for the user automatically based on results. The client wanted to add a feedback feature to the test module. To make the app perform well, we needed to automate all the modules using Appium to reduce the number of manual testing cycles. The testing solution provided by us needed to maintain the new user registration module, ensuring all the mandatory fields required for registration of a user worked bug-free and smoothly.
The Solution Summary:
Our expert testing team after careful evaluation of the pain points, went through much deliberation to come up with the solution. As Appium supports both Android and iOS systems automated testing proceeded at a faster pace. It also helps in integration with continuous integration servers like Jenkins, to ensure better results.
Appium testing for mobile apps can be written in any language, which makes it easier for the app tester to write a script for testing. As it supports cloud-based testing, test scripts can be run in the cloud using services such as Sauce Labs, BrowserStack, and Testdroid. By using the record and playback methodology in Appium, the testers using this functionality will be able to use Inspector to accelerate their test process.
By using Appium, testing can be conducted on real devices, Emulators, and Simulators. It also facilitates the testing of hybrid and mobile web apps as a cross-platform test automation framework. Our testing team is able to run their tests smoothly by using Appium without requiring a server machine.
