It’s a mobile world. This tiny bit of technology is used to create big impact. Mobile’s ubiquity and its accessibility across class, social and cultural lines allows new uses to develop everyday according to need and circumstance.
Our whole big world is now wrapped up in a small device, whatever we did on out laptops or PC has now moved to our hand-held devices. Be it shopping or just plain surfing, be it finding the right job or a perfect match, hand-held devices are the preferred option now.
This choice has increased the number of application on devices. And this competition has increased the features (accessibility) being offered.
Here comes the need, when automating the testing of these devices the tester needs some control.
Selenium has given this control by providing the API’s of almost all the functionality. But at times there are situations when even the solution provided to you by selenium team is not sufficient. You need to sit down and code your requirements, this is also supported by selenium as it is an open source.
Our another need was that,
We have a variety of users with their own specific choice of choosing a device of their own liking. We have iPhone, Android, Blackberry and various other options available in the market. We cannot restrict the user on a type of device for a specific application. So, app owner get the same app developed for all platforms. Here starts the woes of a tester again. Same application, same functionality to be tested over a variety of platforms.
To handle this via automation we have “Appium” that was introduced in the first half of the year 2013.
Now that we had “Selenium” and “Appium” these “increasing needs of automating a device” can now be addressed. So, here we have come out with a one point solution “KRYPTON”
KRYPTON, is a product designed by our company Thinksys Softwares pvt. ltd that seeks to cater all the needs and demands of automating a device. Here “device” means “a device” it includes the app to be automated, the features of device itself, and hybrid app’s everything that needs to be tested can now be automated to be tested with ease.
While developing this product developers had the needs, present demands and future demands of QA in their heads along with that they also know that the work of a QA itself is so tough and our solution should not add to their woes.
We have used simple excel sheet, where a tester just needs to write a test case in the way as he would write a normal manual test case. Rest is handle by KRYPTON
