Mobile application development is undeniably a hot and growing market and with it comes new challenges for the test community. This month, SSQ is focusing on mobility testing with a series of tips and stories covering everything from determining scope for your mobile test efforts to implementing an automated test strategy.
We started the month with a series from DeveloperTown’s Rick Grey who was tasked with creating a mobile applicaton test strategy in a resource-constrained environment. Grey reminds us that risk and mission criticality need to be taken into account when determining scope and creating a strategy. In the situation he describes, there was not a need for a highly available mobile application since the functionality was available through a website. Additionally, security risks were low. This allowed for a different approach than one in which availability and security are greater risks.
