Updates on QA Testing Tools

Appium

Introduction

Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS or Android SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser. Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a "webview" -- a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app.Appium is "cross-platform": it allows to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS and Android testsuites.

Avoid Common Testing Metric Pitfalls

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.

The advantages of BDD and BDT

Behavior-driven development (BDD) is an agile testing methodology. BDT - Behavior driven testing, usally come after /during BDD (Behavior Driven development) but is not a must, it can be organized with traditional testing as well.

BDD is a process of development based on test-driven development (TDD). BDD blends main standards of test-driven development and ideas from domain-driven design and object-oriented analysis to provide software developers and business analysts with shared tools and a shared process to collaborate on software development.
