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.
The Internet of Things is a highly discussed topic these days. It is always discussed as a future development, yet the first iteration of the IoT is already upon us. Learn how eggPlant Functional can test the IoT, using a set-top box as an example.
As security becomes increasingly important with the advent of IoT and increasing popularity of BYOD (bring your own device), the use of MDM systems is widespread, especially amongst large-scale enterprise employers, to manage a wider range of devices than ever before.
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.
The Finance industry is built around highly sophisticated IT systems, including customer facing services using browsers and secure mobile apps, internal trading platforms, exchanges, and essential back office systems.
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.
In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and other systems for safety and traffic management are emerging, often with government regulation, creating formidable testing and QA challenges. Learn how eggPlant testing tools can help.
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.
Defense and aerospace
Defense demands a level of product quality, reliability, and robustness that’s unimaginable in other industries. This is why testing costs in defense and aerospace can be 75% of the total product development cost. See how 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.
Healthcare and life sciences
The healthcare and life sciences industry requires testing of clinical support systems, digital imaging (PACS), electronic health record and electronic medical record (EHR/EMR) management, and hospital and practice administration. Learn how eggPlant tools help.
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.
Data driven testing
Data driven testing is where a single test script is executed many (potentially thousands) of times with different data values. This allows for a huge variety of tests with little effort. Learn how eggPlant testing tools can execute data driven tests.
