40 a practical guide to testing wireless smartphone applications • • Duplicate, missing, and out-of-order content because of flaws in the asynchronous data processing. Applications not detecting or coping adequately with being suspended, losing the connection, etc. Let us move on to how we can automate some of the testing for mobile AJAX devices. • • • • 41 chapter 5 Testing Mobile AJAX Applications We should be able to automate many aspects of testing Mobile AJAX applications. We have several options in terms of automation, including: using desktop test automation tools; using embedded browsers; and even automating some of the more complete device emulators, such as the iPhone emulator included in Apple’s development tools.

Generally we are able to manually verify whether a bug really occurs by testing with a real phone. This helps us to remove false positives from our system. Our developers are then able to modify the application software to prevent the issue from occurring. , for aesthetics and to ensure the content renders correctly on the affected devices. 7 Probe Servers Sometimes we are left with a number of open questions, such as: • • • What are the capabilities various devices? What content causes problems?

In theory the simulator could be automated using desktop application automation tools that operate at the Graphical User Interface (GUI) level. I would not recommend automation of simulators as a general solution unless the simulator provides good support for test automation. Otherwise the effort is likely to be substantial, and testing with actual devices will provide more faithful and complete results. , for a search box), which makes the test scripts much easier to write and reduces the likelihood of your tests breaking each time the code is updated.
