Before we start, please download the latest version of Testdroid Recorder and install it in Eclipse. Here you will find [...]
We are proud to announce that Testdroid Recorder is now officially out from Beta. The production version includes numerous new features, usability improvements and a lot of bug fixes.
The feature highlights of Testdroid Recorder 1.0 are:
Automatically configures your Android Test project for Robotium use
Testdroid Recorder takes your Android Test project and automatically generates all files needed to set up a working Robotium test project. This means that you will have your first automated Android tests in matter of minutes – not hours or days!
Recording test cases without application source code (just APK is needed)
We have listened to our customers and added the capability to record test cases without the application source code. Now you can take almost any APK file and create either Robotium or monkey runner tests for that APK by using Testdroid Recorder. Sweet!
Test output either in Robotium Java test code or monkeyrunner test programs
Now supporting recording without source code and generating monkeyrunner tests
How to design Android application which get you more money? Do you know where money comes from? It comes from really good users feelings and experience. You should know that if your app does something that is useful but ugly, slow and confusing, people will not use it. If your app crashes, it won’t be featured. If it doesn’t have good usability and quality, you have really failed as a developer.
A great number of customers have shown interest in our build and test tools hosted from cloud. Especially companies from Android development community have contacted us, which indicates they are really actively seeking solutions to improve development process and productivity and especially quality of apps and services.
Helsinki, Finland (May 4th, 2011) Bitbar, technology and services company enabling Android software development teams to accelerate their product development, improve quality and lower fixed costs in their development by providing automated software Build and Test environments, announces the release of Testdroid Recorder and Testdroid Server in conjunction with Google IO 10-11 May 2011.
This week we created a video demonstrating Bitbar Testdroid testing solution in real live action running automated Robotium UI tests simultaneously on 6 Android phones and 2 emulator configurations. The video gives a good idea how much time you can save with this solution as running the tests simultaneously takes only minutes but if you were to run these manually on each of these devices it would take hours. Additionally all results are stored in nice human readable form enabling test trend comparisons between builds.
Designing new devices and developing new solutions for mobile environments is a painful process as everyone who has worked on new platforms and millions of possible configurations know.
If you are a semiconductor maker who is working on Android or Linux and creating a base port for your new chip, a device maker designing incredible devices that customers crave and love or an application developer working with the latest devices, you are most probably working with such unstable environment.
With Bitbar automatic build and test service you can automatically test your applications against multiple Android phone configurations simultaneously as part of your Continuous Integration (CI) process. By automating your application testing you can ensure that your application behaves correctly on every Android version, which will reduce costs and increase efficiency of the testing process. Robotium (Android UI testing tool) tests are independent from the application source code and are easy to create with popular Selenium UI testing style syntax.
Automatic UI testing helps to keep the quality of your software high and helps you notice if your code changes affect the implementation of the actual use cases. When you are creating Android applications you would like to be able to test them without the help of many human testers. Human testing of UI of the same application on multiple devices is a waste of time, so you want to eliminate it through automation, like you would do it with Selenium for web application. For Android applications there is a similar tool for testing called Robotium.
