Perfecto Mobile Introduces Developer Toolkit to Enable Mobile Test Automation with Leading Open Source Development Tools

Perfecto Mobile, provider of the MobileCloud™ Platform and integrated mobile application quality suite, today announced its new MobileCloud Developer Toolkit. The MobileCloud Developer Toolkit extends leading software development tools to mobile and provides mobile app developers with the test automation and collaboration capabilities required to support agile development. By supporting familiar open source tools, including Eclipse, Selenium, and Jenkins, this toolkit defines an easy path for developers going mobile, allowing them to leverage their existing tools and workflows, enable continuous integration and support faster delivery.

Today, many mobile developers are working around limitations from tools originally designed for interacting and testing web apps to testing mobile applications across multiple devices. Integrating the MobileCloud Developer Toolkit into the mobile application development lifecycle helps overcome these challenges by transforming these existing development tools into a mobile-ready toolset necessary for achieving the goal of building better apps faster.

“Mobile is agile by nature and thus forces developers to simultaneously contend with faster release cycles and an ever-changing mobile device feature set. Testing on real devices in real-life conditions earlier in the development process is key to delivering higher quality applications,” said Yoram Mizrachi, CTO, Perfecto Mobile. “With the new MobileCloud Developer Toolkit, we are providing new designed-for-mobile capabilities that DevOps teams can execute using familiar tools and skillsets, all designed to support rather than change existing workflows.”

With the MobileCloud Developer Toolkit, developers are able to extend the environment, tools and languages they know into mobile and embed real devices connected to real carriers throughout the development process. These solutions combine the strengths of device-as-a-service, leveraging leading mobile test frameworks and the rapid feedback of continuous integration. Following are the different integrations available in the Mobile Cloud Developer Toolkit:

  • MobileCloud for Eclipse – The industry’s first Eclipse add-on that delivers full support for automated mobile application testing using real devices from within the Eclipse UI. The add-on provides record, playback and debugging abilities, full object support regardless of application style, complete device under test data including logs, vitals and step-by-step execution reporting.
  • MobileCloud WebDriver (Selenium) – The first mobile-ready Selenium-based testing solution moving beyond browser-only applications to native and hybrid mobile applications on real cloud-based devices. MobileCloud WebDriver adds additional capabilities, including device vital information, visual and object analysis from within the app by using robust checkpoints.
  • MobileCloud Jenkins Plugin – The MobileCloud for Jenkins Plugin enables developers to automate build acceptance testing as part of each build and supports continuous integration. The MobileCloud plugin enables broader testing on real cloud-based devices resulting in earlier defect identification. Adding real device testing to the Jenkins nightly build can be accomplished in minutes and testing results are delivered automatically.

For a first look at the MobileCloud Developer Toolkit, tune into the webinar “Learn How to Test Any Mobile App Style from within Eclipse Using Real Devices” taking place on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 11:00am-12:00pm EST. To register, please visit:
