Selenium Remote Control

A tool that allows to write automated web application UI tests in any programming language

Tool Information

Introduction

Tool Summary

As you can read in Brief History of The Selenium Project, Selenium RC was the main Selenium project for a long time, before the WebDriver/Selenium merge brought up Selenium 2, the newest and more powerful tool.
Selenium 1 is still actively supported (mostly in maintenance mode) and provides some features that may not be available in Selenium 2 for a while, including support for several languages (Java, Javascript, Ruby, PHP, Python, Perl and C#) and support for almost every browser out there.

Selenium Remote Control (RC) is a server, written in Java, that accepts commands for the browser via HTTP. RC makes it possible to write automated tests for a web application in any programming language, which allows for better integration of Selenium in existing unit test frameworks. Selenium project currently provides client drivers for PHP, Python, Ruby, .NET, Perl and Java. The Java driver can also be used with JavaScript (via the Rhino engine). A new instance of selenium RC server is needed to launch html test case. However, for Java/PHP test case only one Selenium RC instance needs to be running continuously.

Mobile application testing is an important part of the product development lifecycle; unfortunately, it is often overlooked due to time constraints.  Turning out applications that have not been rigorously tested would only backfire when users start complaining and eventually stop using the app all together. There have been cases where applications have been released into the market before extensive testing in order to meet quick deadlines.  However, if you carry out testing activities, right from the beginning, even before the codes have been written, you would be able to keep pace with the developers and contribute to delivering applications within short development timelines.

Let’s take a look at how you can efficiently tackle mobile apps testing

Manual Testing

Manually testing a mobile application is most suited for evaluation and analysis. It is a user centric approach that focusses on verifying whether the app meets all the user requirements. The best scenario to deploy manual testing is for evaluating the user experience and user interface of an application. Ideally, this should account for just around 20% of your testing, the rest should be automated.

Automated testing

Automated testing should be set up for as many scenarios as possible. Automation is the most important testing activity. You can set a schedule to configure entire libraries or series of tests as and when required. They work seamlessly with your continuous integration system. In case you don’t have such a system a competent set of automated tests will prevent relapses and keep your application robust. The various test cases that should be automated are:

  • Frequent test cases
  • Cases that can be easily automated
  • Cases where the result can be predicted
  • Manual cases that are tedious
  • Cases that are impossible to manually perform
  • Cases that require several different configurations, software platforms and hardware
  • Cases that have frequently used functionalities

Here are a few strategies to test your mobile application

Performance Test Automation

Automation for performance testing can be started out with all the information gathered during functional testing. These test cases can be modified for scalability and concurrency.

Performance Unit Tests

Performance unit tests can be designed way before the actual coding. Essentially, performance test driven development (TDD) is an approach that mobile application testing experts follow, wherein performance expectations and tests for a module is created before writing the code. Identify specific code areas that could end up as bottlenecks and device tests that assess their scalability.

A Modular Approach

When you create performance unit tests, you wind up having several different units that can be clubbed to make a modular library of test series that can be easily adapted and scaled to suit different test scenarios. These simple units can be arranged to create complex interactions that thoroughly test complicated test instances.

Synthetic Users

The system would consider a synthetic user as a regular user and respond as it would to a user. Whereas, in reality, they are a set of instructions that are programmed to execute a specific transaction path within a live environment just as a user would do. These instructions are marked up and fully instrumental enabling us to analyze the metrics reported.

Leverage Cloud

Performing load tests on the cloud makes mobile application testing realistic as the unit you are testing would have to go through the very same network layers, firewalls and load balancers that then actual user would have to go through. Cloud also enables you to spread the load sources over different geographies to achieve realistic testing scenarios. You would be able to scale up or down, as well as, test specific functionality easily this way.

Mobile application testing is a combined effort, it requires the attention of everyone involved with the application to contribute positively to turning out a bug-free application. It helps to share test results with those involved to help better understand the various scenarios and work accordingly. We at Gateway TechnoLabs, have dedicated testing experts, who have a rich experience of delivering error free applications. Over the years, we have built and developed various testing modules making it easy for us to put together a comprehensive set of test cases.
