Over the last few years, demand for rich internet applications and web 2.0 deployments has increased dramatically. But many organizations struggle with legacy test tool to keep pace with the accelerated rate of development that these applications demand. Rich internet applications often have a very narrow window of opportunity, so the quality assurance team needs to be able to start software testing quickly.
eggPlant, TestPlant’s automated application test tool lets them do this. eggPlant is unique among rich internet application tools for testing because it focuses on testing from the end-user’s perspective. This makes it ideal for rich internet application testing, where a positive end-user experience is fundamental to its success.
eggPlant is also very simple to use. It doesn’t require code-level hooks or an understanding of an application’s underlying architecture to get the testing process underway. As a result, it’s fully future-proofed, and whatever the desired application testing process, be it Agile, data-driven testing, functional testing, browser testing or something else, developers and testers can start testing in web 2.0 environments straight away.
A quick look at some of the technologies underpinning rich internet applications demonstrates why eggPlant is the testing tool of choice for many businesses.
Its is the new RIA and growing rapidly. With growing adoption in mobile app development HTML5 is set for great growth. But testing it remains a challenge. But with eggPlant you can test it as any other RIA application.
Because eggPlant doesn’t rely on code hooks for application testing, it’s perfect for GUI testing graphic rich applications designed and built in Flash – where no code-level tool integration is possible.
As eggPlant does not rely on objects, testing AJAX functionality is simple and easy as well as allow for performance metrics to be used.
With eggPlant, scripting a Silverlight application is no different from scripting any other application. Here’s a little video put together by one of our support staff that demonstrates using eggPlant to automate a Silverlight application testing: http://screencast.com/t/3Ja0GTVS.
As GUI’s are developed using Java with SWING or SWT. Testing them for functional validation becomes more important.With eggPlant you can conduct diversified GUI testing.
