Abstract

This disclosure provide a mechanism to have the automation testing capability for multi-user mobile applications which are more and more popular. It can test the special type of mobile application efficiently, and it also can be used to test normal type mobile application. It'll be very powerful for testing the mobile applications like multi-player games and cooperation platforms both on device and simulator.

Method and System for automation testing multi-user interactive mobile application

There are some the automation testing methods or frameworks for mobile applications by now. In thesemethods or frameworks, the testing approach basically including the following steps:


a. prepare scripts or command sequence of a test case(writing code or record actions)


b. send test scripts or command sequence to the target device or simulator


c. execute test case on the device or simulator, verify test result and generate the test report(optional)

But these are some test scenarios for the multi-user interactive mobile applications that these existing testing methods or frameworks could not cover, because this type of application:


a. need to handle synchronous actions from multi-user with multi-device


b. has distributed verification point in different devices

This disclosure provide a mechanism to have the automation testing capability for multi -user mobile applications which are more and more popular . It can test the special type of mobile application efficiently, and it also can be used to test normal type mobile application . It'll be very powerful for testing the mobile applications like multi -player games and cooperation platforms both on device and simulator .

In conclusion, the benefits of this disclosure are listed below :


a. Powerful automation testing capability for the multi -user interactive mobile applications which have distributed verification point in different devices or simulators .


b. Can be used to test mobile applications both on devices and simulators .


c. Can be used to test normal type mobile applications .

There are two main parts to implement the mechanism in this disclosure, one is test center which runs on testing computer, the another is an adapter which runs on the mobile devices. The following picture shows the impl...
