Mobile Testing Process
The usage of mobile application is increasing in all business areas like Schools, Publishers, Retailers, HealthCare providers, etc. This evolves the use of the mobile application that increases the businesses focus to develop a robust mobile application and the testing of the mobile application before it is launched in the market. Only the development of the mobile application is not enough; it also needs testing before introducing the app into the market. The testing is essential so that the application can run smoothly without any difficulties.
The steps which involve in the process of Mobile Testing are as shown below:
Step 1) Planning and Preparation: When the development stage is complete, we should have to identify the app's objective and the limitation of the app.
Planning and Preparation involve the below steps:
1. First, find out the functional Requirement.
Now we will find out the following requirements as shown below:
Step 2) Classify the types of testing.
In this step, we will identify the types of testing which we want to apply to mobile applications. We will do the usability, compatibility, performance, and security testing on the target devices. And we will also define which functionality should be tested.
Step 3) Preparation of the test case and the script design.
Here we will create the test case for every function of the application.
Prepare the document of the test case for every feature and functionality.
In addition to functional test cases, some exceptional cases should also be covered:
It is essential to know which testing we will use, either it is manual or automation.
Prepare separate suite for manual test cases and automated test scripts as per the requirement. Identify the reusable automation scripts and modify them as per the requirement of the project.
Step 4) Environment Set up for Testing
For environment setup, we will follow the below steps:
Step 1. Identify the types of testing: We know that the ILL application is applicable for browsers, so we have to test the application on all the supported browsers by using different mobile devices. Different testing like usability, functional, and compatibility testing will do on the different browsers by using manual and automation test cases.
Step 2. Manual and Automated testing: The method we used here to test the mobile application is the Agile testing. The developers will release the new product for the testing team, and the testing team runs their test cases in the environment of Quality Assurance. The team of the automation creates scripts for the set of the basic functionalities and runs the scripts, which help us to determine that the new build is stable enough to test?the team of Manual Testing tests the new functionality.
JIRA is used to write about the acceptance criteria, maintenance of test cases, and logging /re-verification of defects. When the iteration is complete, a meeting will be held for the iteration planning between the developers, team, product owner, business analyst, and QA team. They will discuss what went well and what needs to improve.
Step 3. Beta Testing: After the completion of the regression testing, now the team of the Quality Assurance will do the User Acceptance Testing. The client does user Acceptance Testing. They re-verify all the bugs to ensure that bug was fixed, and the application is working as expected on every approved browser.
Step 4. Performance test: The performance of the Web Application can be tested by using the JMeter, and also by increasing the loads on the web applications can also test the performance of the applications.
Step 5. Browser testing: Browser testing can be done using simulation tools and using real mobile devices to test web applications over multiple browsers.
Step 6. Launch plan: In the last phase, testing moves into staging; at the end of the 4th-week testing team will test the application, which is the final round of testing where the testing is done to be sure that the product is ready for the production. After the completion of this testing, now the software goes Live!
