Keysight Technologies has released Eggplant Test 7.0, an enhanced version of its automated software test solution, with integrations that enable quality assurance (QA) teams to test mobile apps on multiple devices and operating systems simultaneously.
With the myriad of device and operating system combinations, testing mobile apps before they are released is more important than ever. QA teams need automated tools to speed up the validation of app compatibility, functionality, usability, performance, and security across multiple device configurations.
Keysight's Eggplant Test 7.0 aims to meet this challenge with integrations that can test more than 7,500 operating system and device combinations through Sauce Labs' Real Device Cloud. The latest version of Eggplant Test offers QA teams advanced collaboration features, seamless integration with continuous integration tools, and the ability to connect with virtualised applications. These capabilities collectively enable automation, acceleration, and mitigation of risks inherent in manual testing to enhance the testing process.
New enhancements to the Eggplant Test platform include instant test execution on any device and operating system via Sauce Labs' Real Device Cloud, ensuring comprehensive test coverage without the hassle of managing physical devices.
The platform now integrates with Git to bring version control capabilities to the test automation process, enabling teams to roll back to previous versions, compare changes, and collaborate seamlessly across multiple branches.
It also integrates with popular CI tools to incorporate test automation into CI/CD pipelines to identify and fix issues earlier, and improves collaboration among QA teams by providing a unified platform for test automation that enables team members to seamlessly work together, share test assets, and collaborate in real time.
"Eggplant Test 7.0 empowers teams to conquer complexity by simultaneously testing mobile apps across over 7,500 operating system and device combinations,” said Gareth Smith, General Manager, Software Test Automation at Keysight. “By harnessing the power of Sauce Labs' Real Device Cloud, we eradicate the constraints of costly device labs, unleashing instant test execution. Through seamless integrations like Git, Citrix, Active Directory, and continuous integration tools, we pave the way to unparalleled success through true end-to-end testing. With Eggplant Test 7.0, we are shaping a future defined by seamless, comprehensive testing."
