Join us at the IBM Rational Systems and Software Symposium – Detroit

TestPlant’s Principal Technical Account Manager, Rick Peattie*, will be presenting “Test automation for the software centric vehicle” at the IBM Rational Systems and Software Symposium, Detroit on March 25th, 2014.
 
The rapid growth of software based components within vehicles is challenging QA professionals and test tool vendors alike. In-vehicle electronic interfaces including In Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and control systems typically have user interfaces that cannot be automated using conventional object based scripting. TestPlant’s eggPlant Functional test tool integrates with IBM Rational Quality Manager, employing unique two-system image based automation that can test the vast majority of graphical user interfaces.

Testing across Desktop and Mobile with a Single Script

eggPlant Functional is a well known tool for testing against mobile, as well as desktop devices. This makes eggPlant Functional unique from other products that often only test one type of OS or charge separately for testing against multiple platforms. What makes this product especially valuable is its unique ability to test against both desktop and mobile versions of the same application within a single script. This includes both the browser-based and desktop version of the application. Read more…

Multi-user Functional testing should not be a Cinderella activity!

Is the following scenario familiar? A few days before large scale load testing is due to begin everything appears to be on track. Functional testing is complete, UAT is going well and the load test scripts run successfully with variable input data so parameterisation and dynamic data correlation are working. A quick analysis of server resources used by the key transactions indicate that the target of sub two second response times for a thousand concurrent users at twenty transactions per second should be easily achievable. You now decide to run a low concurrency, let’s say ten user, test to confirm that the environment is fully functional. Read more…

We came, we saw, we listened!

George Mackintosh, on TestPlant’s presence at Europe’s largest software testing conference and exhibition. This year the event was held in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Gothenburg is home to Volvo Cars and SKF ball bearings. And there’s a link between these two giants: SKF managers founded Volvo! Anyway, this fine city of half a million soles was host to the 2013 EuroSTAR Software Testing Conference and some 800 delegates and exhibitors converged in the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre in early November.
