    Re: Palm Application Testing

    Because of memory and OS limitations, you
    can't run autotest tools on the PDA. I can't
    think of any really good way to automate PDA
    software testing. But I do know a
    dubious approach.

    Download your ROM image to a recent version
    of the Palm Emulator and write Perl scripts
    to click the buttons, etc on the emulated
    PDA. Scripts exploit the face that .prc
    files are databases, not executables in the
    normal sense. The .prc files have resource
    ids in them.

    Since all formal testing I have been
    associated with has had verification as one
    of its goals and you can't honestly verify
    software using fake hardware, emulator
    testing has never been OK for me, but you
    might just be engaged in pure bug hunting.
    In that case...

    Re: Palm Application Testing

    Well, you could actually put the app on a real device and test it that way too. What kind of testing are you trying to do? Loadtesting or performance testing of the app and some other software can be achieved with SilkPerformer, e-Load, etc.

    Re: Palm Application Testing

    The product is on QA stage now. We are planning to release a beta
    in a couple of weeks.

    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.

    Testing Process
    Testing process consists of three stages: tests' creation, tests'
    reproducing and the analysis of the tests passed.


    Tests' creation:
    The tests are created with recording of user's actions with Palm Event
    Recorder, which records the
    operations you perform on GUI objects in your applications done on
    Palm OS Emulator or on a device controlled by Palm OS. A test recorded
    is a database file logDB, which keeps sequence of user's actions recorded.
    The following actions are recorded: low-level actions - pressing the
    screen's
    surface with stylus, reset and device's turn on/ off, and high-level
    actions - running the device, pressing on the control elements (buttons,
    listbs, popup lists, tables etc.)
    and hardware buttons etc. The actions are saved in pdb-file necessary
    for test's reproducing.

    Tests' reproducing:
    When you run the test Palm Test Runner emulates a user, reproducing
    his actions into applications in Palm OS Emulator.
    Pressing on screen's surface with sylus, turn on/off actions and
    resets are repeated. It's possible to add breakpoints to the test
    sequence. Breakpoints pause a test run at pre-determined points, enabling
    you to identify
    flaws in your test.
    It's also possible to change the time intervals between actions to
    make test faster or to look it through more carefully. You also can
    add comments to test.
    It's possible to reproduce tests in two modes: play mode and debug mode
    running.
    Play mode - user's actions sequence is repeated with certain time
    delays. In debug mode the breakpoints set by user are considered.
