Perforce launches Android and iOS virtual devices
Perforce announced the availability of Android Emulators and iOS Simulators as part of the Device Lab available on Perfecto’s Smart Test Automation Platform.
With these new virtual devices, mobile app developers and testers can automate manual and Appium-based testing in parallel, in the cloud, and in different geographies, depending on the company.
“By performing strategic testing on virtual devices, organizations give developers faster feedback, so they can detect and resolve issues quickly without disrupting their workflows,” said Eran Kinsbruner, a DevOps evangelist at Perforce. . “Virtual devices complement real device testing later in the cycle to provide a powerful and comprehensive combination to get feedback quickly without compromising application quality.”
SmartBear tests now support Apache Kafka
SmartBear’s ReadyAPI now supports API testing for real-time event architecture with Apache Kafka event streaming services.
Apache Kafka enables teams to capture real-time data from databases, sensors, mobile devices, cloud services, and software applications in a scalable, reliable and secure manner.
“Organizations are moving from centralized and complex data lakes to a renewed focus on the data pipeline – or data in flight. A key element of this change is event architectures and services. The challenge now is to ensure that all processes and data flows behave as expected, ”said Alianna Inzana, senior director of product management at SmartBear. “With ReadyAPI for Kafka testing support, organizations can now deliver rapid quality in their event architecture, deploying higher quality applications faster.”
