eggPlant testing tools can easily be used to address the varying complexities of testing websites that use responsive design, where a very dynamic interface allows the site to respond to the size of the device screen where it is being displayed.
Traditionally monitoring has been done using system monitoring tools that look at the back-end systems of an application. As UIs become more complex, monitoring at the application-level has become increasingly important.
Enterprise software has never before been so exciting, or such a challenge for testers. The continual rise of new technologies being applied to the enterprise – cloud, touch, mobile, big data, and social – makes enterprise software testing a demanding skill.
Banking is increasingly a digital operation. Learn how the eggPlant range of test automation tools can address unique app testing needs in finance.
Performance testing online
Learn about how application-level performance/load testing is an effective and simple answer to the challenges of testing complex retail websites. We’ll talk about how we used eggPlant Performance with application-level virtual users spread around the world.
Mobile device testing offers unique challenges such as dealing with device fragmentation, testing of related back-end server components, performance timings, and network behavior. This page discusses how eggPlant testing tools can address these problems.
eggPlant Performance can be used alone, and combined with eggPlant Functional, to address a wide variety of load testing situations. The suitability of eggPlant tools to a collection of common examples is described here.
Media and entertainment
Media and entertainment is an industry continually being transformed by new technology. This relentless adoption of new technologies creates formidable testing challenges that eggPlant can help.
Cross browser testing
Having a website that’s accessible to everyone means supporting major desktop browsers, with several active versions. eggPlant testing tools help test across all browsers with the same effort as testing just one.
The eggPlant UX (user experience) shows how your application will behave in the real world. Products using distributed systems, with components running across cloud, desktops, web browsers, and mobile devices are more difficult to test; but eggPlant UX can help.
e-Commerce and online media companies engage with their customers via their online presence; so the quality and recency of their technology is vital to their existence. Highly efficient and effective website testing is therefore absolutely essential. eggPlant can help.
Multi-user functional test
Multi-user functional testing is executing multiple instances of a functional test at the same time, i.e. simulating a number of people using the system at the same time. The number of instances is small (e.g. 5) which is what differentiates this from load testing.
Localization is modifying an application for use in another geographical region, such as translating text into the local language, and changing currencies, and date systems. This is critical to sales in other regions, but is difficult to test without the right testing tools.
Acceptance Testing is testing done by a customer (rather than a developer) to ensure that the product they are buying meets their requirements. Technically, acceptance testing is similar to system testing, the difference being who is doing the testing.
