Mobile and web cloud testing and monitoring vendor Keynote plans to include new script recording capabilities within its HP UFT (Unified Functional Testing) add-in. This gives UFT users the ability to record and playback scripts which interact directly with native objects on mobile applications, the firm said in a release.
Keynote’s expanded object commands within HP UFT give users the ability to interact directly with Web elements. This capability has been enhanced for Android Chrome, eliminating the need for instrumentation to test any mobile web application while using this browser. The new version of the UFT add-in provides access to a simplified level of descriptive programming for mobile, making it easier to interact with objects and parameters.
“With the exponential growth of both consumer and enterprise mobility demanding progressively faster development and testing cycles, it is essential that organizations leverage existing testing resources for greater efficiency,” said Nick Halsey, chief marketing officer at Keynote.
The company runs what it describes as the “world’s largest cloud testing, monitoring and analytics network and collects over 700 million mobile and website performance measurements daily. Customers include AT&T, Disney, eBay, Expedia, Google, Microsoft, Sony Mobile Communications AB, T-Mobile and Vodafone.
