Robolectric is a unit test framework that de-fangs the Android SDK jar and allows to test-drive the development of an Android app. Tests run inside the JVM on the workstation. It is a framework which mocks part of the Android framework contained in the android.jar file. This enables to run the Android tests in the continuous integration environment without any additional setup. Robolectric supports resource handling, e.g., inflation of views. You can also use the findViewById() to search in a view. Robolectric is based on the the JUnit 4 framework. Robolectric is not an integration test framework, i.e., you cannot not test the interactions.
AppPerfect Java Code Test is a static Java code analysis software designed to perform the following two key tasks: Automate Java code review and Enforce Good Java Coding Practices. AppPerfect Code Test analyzes the Java and Java Server Pages (JSP) source code and applies over 750 Java coding rules to apply the collective knowledge of leading experts in the Java programming field to a code. Locating and fixing performance problems during source code development time. By conducting source code analysis and successfully identifying and correcting all such issues, software developers can eliminate the risk and potential costs early in the software development cycle.
TestObject offers a cloud infrastructure for manual and automated mobile app testing that is accessible from a web browser. TestObject allows to upload native, hybrid or web app to your personal testing account and run tests on 130+ real physical devices. Manual testing, automated testing with Robotium, stress testing with MonkeyRunner, compatibility testing on emulators as well as real devices. No set-up or download needed, TestObject is really easy to use (just sign-up, load your app, start testing), and the billing follows per minute of testing - developers can sign up for a monthly plan or annual plan depending on their testing needs.
Ghost Inspector lets you create and manage UI tests that check specific functionality in your website or application. Ghost Inspector is an automated website testing and monitoring service. Ghost Inspector is an automated website testing and monitoring solution that checks for problems with your website or application. It carries out operations in a browser, the same way a user would, to ensure that everything is working properly.
Sikuli is a visual technology to automate graphical user interfaces (GUI) using images (screenshots). Sikuli Script automates anything you see on the screen without internal API's support. It can programmatically control a web page, a desktop application running on Windows/Linux/Mac OS X, or even an iPhone or Android application running in an emulator. Sikuli IDE or Sikuli Script -- this all now is SikuliX
While it is necessary to have personnel with specialized skill sets, having the right tool in place to employ these agile processes is crucial. These tools not only improve turnaround time when releasing to market, but they also improve the overall quality of your product. The concept of agility can’t be achieved by blindly following a set of guidelines, but rather to adjust them while embracing the principles behind them. Zephyr Enterprise Edition is a tool that truly enables teams to be agile by allowing them the flexibility to customize the functionality to their specific needs.
QATestingTools' comparison of popular automation tools: Sahi Pro v/s Selenium Webdriver v/s HP Quick Test Professional (QTP)
Sahi Pro is a mature, business-ready tool for automation of web application testing.
Selenium-WebDriver makes direct calls to the browser using each browser's native support for automation.
HP QuickTest Professional (QTP), an automated functional testing tool that helps testers to perform automated regression testing in order to identify any gaps, errors/defects in contrary to the actual/desired results of the application under test.

Selenium Grid takes Selenium Remote Control to another level by running tests on many servers at the same time, cutting down on the time it takes to test multiple browsers or operating systems. Selenium-Grid allows to run tests on different machines against different browsers in parallel. Essentially, Selenium-Grid support distributed test execution. Grid allows you to :
scale by distributing tests on several machines ( parallel execution )
manage multiple environments from a central point, making it easy to run the tests against a vast combination of browsers / OS.
minimize the maintenance time for the grid by allowing you to implement custom hooks to leverage virtual infrastructure for instance.
eggPlant is TestPlant’s GUI automation and software testing product. This black-box driven test tool does not interact with the underlying code, eggPlant is ideal for GUI test automation and black-box testing of any application including those that can cause problems for other tools such as: Flash,. Java, HTML, .Net, Silverlight. eggPlant is used for the entire testing process, from authoring scripts to evaluating results. eggPlant is installed on one computer per license. From there, you can author scripts and run them against any other computer. eggPlant uses Virtual Network Computing (VNC) to “look at” the SUT and send mouse and keyboard commands to it.
Bstriker ALTM encompasses Features/Requirements, Development, (Automatic and manual) Testing and Defect management SAAS or on premise connecting or fully integrating with 3rd party applications from different vendors.
Bstriker’s main goal is to help companies to achieve high quality standards and to real time measure the level of quality of a software application.
Mobile application testing is a process by which application software developed for hand held mobile devices is tested for its functionality, usability and consistency. Mobile application testing can be automated or manual type of testing.Mobile applications either come pre-installed or can be installed from mobile software distribution platforms. Mobile devices have witnessed a phenomenal growth in the past few years. A study conducted by the Yankee Group predicts the generation of $4.2 billion in revenue by 2013 through 7 billion U.S. smartphone app download
By no means should QA management and their teams avoid test suites - including automated iterations - altogether. These resources can be extremely useful for software testers and help them dig up a variety of issues. However, no single asset should be given too much focus, as they will each display some strengths and weaknesses. Quality development practices should include a comprehensive arsenal of testing tools to aid the efforts of QA professionals. Explore the top 10 risks to keep in mind when taking a test suite approach to QA.
Some QA leaders have found that their collected data doesn't always effectively address the questions they have. This may occur for a variety of reasons, but a likely culprit is a lack of context. Testing metrics should not be considered in a vacuum. To get the best results from these assets, QA management must consider numerous measurements and the implications they offer as an entire unit.
This is the second part of Amit's tools he was experiencing during his work. This great list shows tools that can help any tester to succeed in his/hers quest. Good tester is the one that know, not only to activate the testing machine or application, also has strong ability to know and learn how to use wide range of tools that will help him/her to analyze the SUT and summarize in the correct manner. After going through the tools in this list, QA doesn't seem so simple any more.
