One of the requirements of using Appium for mobile test automation is to start the Appium server in the background so that it can listen to the requests from the mobile app under test. And there are multiple ways that we can install and start the Appium server in the background.
Open test automation frameworks are constantly evolving, and at least one new test framework emerges every year and becomes the favorite one among developers. That puts more challenges on the development and testing/QA teams to make long-term planning, since investing in test automation yields results over a longer period of time and test assets cannot be ported to new frameworks frequently without losing a significant amount of the investments.
Software testing is evolving quickly. A new report highlights the technologies that developers can use to speed-up testing and deployment in the new year. But are you taking advantage of them?
Smartbear released ‘The State of Testing 2018’ last month. This annual industry report surveys QA professionals to establish the methodologies, practices and tools that they’re using to build, validate and deliver software. It also identifies insights into the future that they think we’re heading towards.
Every now and then a new mobile test automation framework emerges, it quickly gains attention from mobile developers. This is happening right now with the Detox framework.
It’s obvious that companies nowadays are investing more in automation solutions to streamline the workflow of build, test, deploy and monitor mobile apps. As developing high-quality apps requires lots of intensive testing, companies will most likely highlight Speed as one of the cornerstones when evaluating test automation tools and services.
Without access to source code, there are limited ways to develop test automation solutions for mobile games. With the increasing popularity of Unity Technologies amongst mobile game developers, Bitbar began to explore gray box test capabilities with Golden Rat Studios.
Golden Rat Studios is a game development studio based in Playa Vista (Los Angeles), California. Led by industry veterans, Golden Rat Studios LLC is building the next generation of real-time, multiplayer, social games for Explorer Corporation Limited, a new mobile game distributor located in Hong Kong. In collaboration with Golden Rat Studios, we’ve engineered a test automation framework with Unity tools to supplement an image recognition-based approach.

Like in any field of the world, achieving success requires some key factors – there’s hard work and there’s luck. But there are also one or two things that have killer impacts, making all the difference. And it’s that point that makes top mobile games/apps stand out from the crowd.
