    Testing PDA & Palm

    Id like to be able to automate testing of a product on these devices. My best guess so far is to extend Silk to recognise an emulator, so...
    Is there a standard emulator to work on?
    Has someone already extended silk or worked on doing so? Your tips and advice welcome.

    Re: Testing PDA & Palm

    Check out www.palmos.com/dev/tech/tools/emulator/ - there is an emulator available for download. I have worked with it and after you get through the tedium of setting up methods for it, it's not too bad. Note I said not _too_ bad. You can take a ROM image from an existing Palm so any program you want to test will be available through the emulator.

    Hi Steve,

    Did you use SilkTest to autmate the test? Or you are talking about testing application on emulator manually?

    I am asking because, we are trying to use Silk and emulator to atutmate the test. Not successful yet....

    Thanks.

    Re: Testing PDA & Palm

    Hi,

    Sorry, I didn't see your reply until now.

    I recorded coordinate clicks to the emulator and put them into functions. That way I could call, for example, ClickThatIcon (). Also I threw keystrokes to the emulator - a lot of that .

    Our app was mainly for generating XML after a few entries. So I didn't need to dink around too much with it.

    Steve

    Re: Testing PDA & Palm

    Hi

    Do you need automated tool for PDA testing ??
    I'm developing a tool for automate PalmOS devices testing..
    The product is on QA stage now.

    PalmOS Test Suite

    The Aim

    PalmOS Test Suite is oriented for automate testing of applications on
    the devices controlled by Palm OS or on PalmOS Emulator.
    PalmOS Test Suite automates testing to ensure that applications work as
    expected. Automated testing can help
    eliminate
    human error, speed up test turnaround time, and cut costs during regression
    testing. Although automating the
    testing process
    initially requires an investment of time and thought, you will recover that
    up-front effort by the time your
    product ships.

    The program consists of two parts:
    Palm parts - PalmOS Event Recorder
    and PC parts - PalmOS Test Runner.

    PalmOS Event Recorder allows to record the user's actions on device
    running Palm OS or on Palm OS Emulator. PalmOS Test Runner -
    it allows to reproduce the user's actions on Palm OS Emulator.
