1 Mobile Test Automation - Right Tools and Right Approach With business interfaces moving on to the Mobile space, enterprises are leveraging innovative apps that not only connect their customers but also strengthen their business with the power of mobility. To meet the demands of faster releases and quality outcomes, Mobile Test Automation has become a game changer in the global economy. With the rise of Mobile first approaches, a substantial traffic has now shifted from the desktops to the Mobile phones. Mobile devices now support a wide range of features including banking, shopping, healthcare, retail, entertainment etc. Mobile apps are now finding their way into business strategies ranging from workforce management to marketing and sales. To ensure quality in mobile apps, Testing needs to be continuous and inclusive. This makes Mobile Test Automation a formidable business driver. When it comes to Mobile Test Automation Tools matter! Features matter! Combinations matter! Discover the Right Tools and the Right Approach for Mobile Test Automation with Gallop Solutions.

2 1 The mobile market is no longer just communication: It's Internet, music, video, Web, social networks, navigation, and everything else The mobile ecosystem now embraces anything a consumer wishes to do either on the move or on a handheld device at home" By 2013 mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide and that by 2015 over 80 percent of the handsets sold in mature markets will be smart phones

3 1 Mobile Test Automation Strategies - Right tools and the right approach In 2013, US consumers spent over 2 hours 19 minutes using mobile phones that excludes making calls matching PC consumption. In 2014 mobile usage will rise to 2 hours 51 minutes, while PC consumption contracts to 2 hours 12 minutes, according to the forecast of a leading marketing agency in April With this exponential rise in usage of Mobile Phones, Mobile Test Automation has become a core component of the business strategies. While business growth is powered by Agile development and a continuous delivery process, Test Automation needs to offer even higher levels of speed, skill and accuracy. Moreover, a successful implementation depends on the right combination of Test Automation Tools that support the technology requirements while aligning the business logic. In addition, the white paper explains the combinations of requirements ranging from Object identification features, capabilities and support matrices. To consolidate the challenges with possible solutions, the white paper lists the tools that address these requirements in each segment. US sites were visited by 3,133 different models of Web-enabled device, while UK sites were visited by 1,255; India 1,918; China 1,387; Russia 1111; Brazil 741 that s according to dotmobi s Device Data Explorer Introduction With the test automation tool vendors slowly moving towards Mobile Test Automation and claiming support for the same, it becomes more relevant to understand the different evaluation criteria that will help pick the right tool for achieving mobile test automation. Automation Test Tools are inherent drivers that sustain the SDLC. Since each tool offers different features and supports different Oss, it is paramount to study the Test Automation Tool landscape to formulate the right combination of tools. Device OS Support Given the landscape of Mobile Operating Systems, support for various Mobile OSs is the most important criteria for tool selection. This white paper is an outcome of Gallop s Global Thought Leadership Initiative 2014 (GTLI 2014) and is designed to help you understand the tool evaluation criteria for comprehensive Mobile Test Automation. Android, ios are the most popular among OSs followed by Windows Phone and Blackberry. One of the key considerations when selecting a tool is list of Mobile OSs on

4 2 which the Mobile App is available. Many commercial tools support most of the popular Mobile OSs, while most open source tools support a single OS. Although PerfectoMobile runs on real devices, the devices reside in the cloud (Private/Public). Application Support Hence it is important to select a tool which supports test automation on all Mobile OS platforms for the AUT. SeeTest, M-EUX, EggPlant and PerfectoMobile take the lead in this criterion. Device Support Once you freeze on the Device OS/OSs on which the tests should run, the next most important criteria is where you would want to run your tests, on a Real Device or Simulator. Most of the tools now support execution on real devices, but open source tools or cloud providers may run tests only on Simulators. It is almost essential to run the tests on at least one set of real devices, hence, when choosing a tool, the support of the tool of running tests on real devices is the key. The Device OS and real device execution are two of the key factors for selecting a tool. But, there are various application types that run on mobile devices viz., Native, Web and Hybrid. It is important to check if the tool supports automation of the Native Apps, Web Apps and Hybrid Apps (running Web Parts/Views in the Native App). Based on your application landscape, you can select a tool which supports just one of the Application types or the one which supports running tests on all application types. SeeTest, M-EUX, EggPlant, PerfectoMobile, Appium take the lead in this criterion. StatCounter (March 2014) attributes 43.5 percent of pageviews to Android smartphones/tablets and 33.2 percent ios smartphones/tablets. SeeTest, M-EUX, EggPlant and Ranorex take the lead in this criterion..

5 3 Object Identification Support With all the important non-technical considerations made when choosing the tool, it is important to further technically evaluate the tool for support of various important criteria. One such criterion (for any automation tool) is the object identification support. It is important to determine if the tool can identify the UI elements using their Ids and other native properties instead of just Images or Text. Many tools also support object recognition with a combination of Native properties, Images and OCR text. Based on the AUT, it is important to evaluate if the object recognition support of the tool will help achieve end to end automation. Most of the tools require libraries to be added before building the application, while some tools utilize advance techniques where the libraries are not required to be added. This is one of the important criteria since the test team might not have access to all the required libraries or may not be able to perform the application instrumentation. SeeTest leads this criterion as the instrumentation process is rather straightforward and does not need additional libraries to instrument the application. In case of Appium, though application code is required for ios to run Appium tests on the devices, it requires no instrumentation at all. SeeTest and PerfectoMobile lead this space as they support more than one object identification mechanisms. Instrumentation Requirement In order to have access to the Native properties of the application under test, most of the mobile test automation tools have a special requirement of a process called application instrumentation. The process of instrumentation however differs among different tools. A survey by the Consumer Electronics Association (October 2013) suggests that only 29 percent of US tablets are 3G/4G capable Browser Support As discussed, one of the types of application you might want to test on the mobile device is the Web applications. Most of the tools support web application automation on the device, but one key criterion to evaluate is the Mobile browser support.

6 4 Most of the tools provide a Webkit browser (which is installed by the tool on device) for web application automation. But if the requirement is to support the Native browser (such as Mobile Safari for ios) and popular browsers such as Mobile Firefox or Chrome, it is important to check if the automation tool supports automating and running tests on these browsers. Orientation and Hardware Control One of the key differences between Mobile Applications Testing vs Convention Application Testing is that the mobile application tests need to be performed for Portrait and Landscape orientation and the hardware controls on the device. Almost all the tools support automation on Webkit browsers. Appium stands out as it has a workaround to support MobileSafari automation on ios and Chrome automation on Android real devices. Record and Playback Capability One of the quickest ways to have your team learn a tool is to use the record and playback capability. This helps the tester understand the object recognition approach the tool takes and the various commands available in the tool and how to use them, in a quick way. If your test suite contains tests that need support for such testing, it is important to choose a tool which supports different orientations and hardware controls (such as Back and Home button, volume up and down etc.). SeeTest, M-EUX and PerfectoMobile take the lead in this space. Smartphones accounted for 53.6 percent of total handset sales (Gartner) This feature can be very useful if your team is just starting out into automation and wants a quick way to start automating tests. SeeTest, M-EUX and PerfectoMobile take the lead in this space. 1 billion smartphones were sold in 2013 (IDC) Gestures and Interrupt Testing Most applications support gestures such as Pinch Zoom in and Out, Swipes, Drag and Flicks and Long taps. For testing applications with such support, choose a tool which has these commands inbuilt or the once which supports custom commands to achieve thedesired results.

7 5 Another aspect of mobile app testing is the interrupt testing. If you want to run these tests in automated fashion, you have to choose a tool which provides you with the capability of generating an interrupt at least as simple as a call or message. SeeTest and PerfectoMobile take the lead in this space. to drive the tests. Most of the popular tools are available on both Windows and Mac OSX. SeeTest, PerfectoMobile and Appium take the lead in this space. Remote and Cloud Execution In addition to the consideration of running the tests on real devices or simulators, you might want to scale your test bed to run on a series of devices, which you do not want to own. In such scenarios, you might want to choose a tool which supports test executions on Remote devices or on a Cloud of devices. There are many commercial tool vendors which support such execution. Hence, before selecting a tool, it is important to understand whether it is a cloud of real devices or simulators. PerfectoMobile, has a vast mobile lab and takes the lead in this space. Support for PC OS to drive tests You would write and run your tests from a desktop machine, and one key consideration is the automation tool support for the PC OS to drive Access to Device logs and Monitors You might want to read or access the device logs, or set and read device level monitors to check device performance during test runs.

8 6 Although this feature might not be a deciding factor, it can be a good to have the feature. Many tools have this feature. SeeTest takes the lead in this space, although with limited features Parallel Executions Most of the tools support driving tests from a programming language and let you build your own customized framework. Your choice might depend on the programming language support you are looking for. SeeTest, Appium and M-EUX take the lead due to their language and programming support. With the number of devices increasing in mobile space, you would always want to cover compatibility check on as many devices as possible and save time at the same time. One of the key features that you might look out for in such a scenario is Parallel execution support on multiple devices. Many commercial tools support it with an additional licensing cost, so you might want to choose the tool appropriately to ensure the licensing cost does not shoot up. Appium s architecture supports parallel execution and offers the parallel executions at no extra cost. All other tools need additional licensing to support parallel executions. Framework and Programming scalability For more advanced and reliable automation tests, you need programming language support and scalability to setup your custom framework. Four out of five global Internet users in 2014 will be a mobile Web user: emarketer Sales of Android handsets are expected to reach close to 1 billion sales in 2014 (Gartner)

9 7 Commercial vs Open Source One of the most important criterions is the tool licensing cost. With most of the commercial tools having licensing cost per device OS, you might want to carefully choose the tool licenses to reach the most optimal cost. emarketer estimates that 73.4 percent of Internet users in 2013 accessed the Web from a mobile device. This is predicted to rise to 79.1 percent in 2014 and reach 90.1 percent in Open source alternatives have also matured over the years and considering all the above criteria, you can find an open source mobile test automation tool to help you achieve end to end mobile test automation. Appium is one of the better tools in Open Source space in addition to MonkeyTalk. The Android operating system (OS) powers 78.6 percent of smartphones, outselling the nearest competitor Apple s ios 5:1. Disclaimer: This white paper is issued for information only.
