SmartBear Furthers Commitment to Mobile Applications Market with New Version of TestComplete

Software, the choice of more than two million software professionals
for building and delivering the world’s best applications, has released
a new version of TestComplete,
taking further steps to enhance its mobile testing capabilities by
providing support for recording object-oriented iOS
tests. Earlier this month, TestComplete earned its fourth Dr.
Dobb’s Jolt Award since 2010 in the Best Testing Tools category.
Mobile application testing provides its own set of challenges, many of
which can significantly inflate the testing effort needed to qualify new
versions. Many mobile app development teams release frequently and
often, which doesn't leave much time for testing complicated scenarios
required by mobile testing. Teams who are testing mobile applications
without the benefit of automated tools may have to take shortcuts to
meet deadlines, leaving areas of the application untested and
compromising quality. Overall, many aspects of testing mobile devices
often do not get the attention they need.
TestComplete 10.3's recording capability makes mobile testing fast and
easy. Providing support for recording object-oriented iOS and Android
tests, TestComplete can now recognize application controls on-the-fly
and record actions as control-specific test commands. TestComplete now
automatically maps control names during recording, so testers no longer
have to do this manually before creating tests. Add to that,
TestComplete’s unique capability to create a library of gestures for
both platforms so testers can easily insert them into their tests,
allowing them to have ultimate flexibility in re-using tests with
different gesture actions. With the new powerful mobile
testing module, there is more time to test complicated scenarios
like device fragmentation, carrier network quality and Wi-Fi
In the past, the first step to mobile testing is asking your development
team to instrument the app so your test framework can read it.
TestComplete 10.3 eliminates this step by including automatic
instrumentation for Android apps - just deploy it to your device and
start testing. Additionally, TestComplete 10.3 adds a number of new
properties for Android that allow testers to simulate device
interactions like Location Services and Orientation.
L. Baker, Research VP and Jason
Wong, Principal Research Analyst at Gartner note, “The combination
of the rapid development cycles and the rapidly evolving mobile device
market presents significant management challenges to the operations
team. These teams need to understand the mix of OS releases, device
hardware configurations and versions of rapidly evolving mobile
applications. The impact on the operations teams will be significant,
and organizations need to plan accordingly, because the management of
the mobile platform will be fluid and demanding. The enterprise will
have to implement operations practices that accommodate the accelerated
rollout of mobile applications.” (Gartner Research Document: Traditional
Development Practices Will Fail for Mobile Apps, Van L. Baker, Jason
Wong, April 15, 2014)
“The complexities of mobile testing can impact a company's ability to
release quality products in a timely manner,” said Lorinda
Brandon, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Testing and Performance
Products at SmartBear. “With this new version of TestComplete,
complexity is reduced, helping both novice and experienced users create
robust mobile tests quickly and easily for both iOS and Android native
apps. Experienced TestComplete users will notice that recording mobile
tests is very similar to recording desktop and Web tests."
Other improvements include device support for iPod touch devices with
iOS ver. 6.x and 7.0–7.0.x. When checking for updates, TestComplete now
checks if new patches for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome Web browsers
are available. Usability improvements in the test log, informative
messages and dialogs have also been added.
TestComplete 10.3 is immediately available for download at http://www.testcomplete.com.
One of the world’s most recognized automated testing tools and winner of
four Dr. Dobb’s Jolt Awards since 2010, TestComplete by SmartBear
empowers any tester, both novice and advanced, to create, manage and run
automated tests for any desktop, Web and mobile application. For the

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone. But what if you could automate provisioning and deployment to deliver error free environments faster? What could you do with your free time?
