Fujitsu Laboratories of America releases innovative new testing platform for mobile applications

Platform automatically generates a suite of high-coverage test cases based on the user-interface model of the mobile application

Sunnyvale, CA, March 17, 2014

Fujitsu Laboratories of America announced the development of a testing platform technology for mobile applications that can generate a high-quality suite of test-cases for medium size mobile applications. This platform can reduce the time for test case generation from several days to a few hours greatly speeding up the development and deployment time for mobile applications.

Mobile apps are rapidly gaining popularity and are being used in an ever-increasing range of personal and business activities. However, mobile applications are typically developed in small teams with short development cycles and limited testing resources. Additionally, most test cases for mobile applications are written manually and can take from several days to a week to develop. Fujitsu Laboratories of America has developed an automated testing platform which generates a high quality suite of test cases for testing a given mobile application in a few hours.

“Insufficient testing and the resulting poor quality applications are a major stumbling block in today’s fast and competitive mobile application marketplace,” said Yasunori Kimura, President and CEO of Fujitsu Laboratories of America. “Through our automated testing platform, application developers can rapidly develop and thoroughly test their mobile applications using very few test resources.”

This testing platform for mobile applications automatically generates a model of the user-interface (UI) of a mobile application and then generates a high-coverage suite of test cases for the application using this UI model. The model generator uses advanced static and dynamic program analysis techniques to extract the behavior of the mobile application and a back-end machine learning engine to infer a model of the application based on this extracted behavior. The test generator then uses the model extracted by the model generator to generate a suite of test-cases to test the application.
