Mobile Development & Testing Integrated

SOASTA'S TouchTest is the first enterprise test automation solution to support Appcelerator’s Titanium 3.0

Appcelerator, who’s got a mobile development platform called Titanium 3.0, and SOASTA, who does cloud and mobile testing and has a mobile test automation solution called TouchTest, have integrated their widgetry to make things easier for developers.

It’s said to be the first integrated test automation solution.

It will allow mobile developers at Appcelerator’s 1,400 enterprise customers to access TouchTest for continuous automated testing as part of the mobile application development lifecycle.

Test automation is a mandatory requirement for mobile app development, and TouchTest is supposed to deliver the speed, precision and affordability required by mobile development teams to scale their development practices that demand a continuous release process.

TouchTest is the first enterprise test automation solution to support Appcelerator’s Titanium 3.0.

The integrated solution provides a cost-effective, rapid and continuous product development lifecycle for mobile developers.

The companies’ new distribution agreement enables Appcelerator customers to add TouchTest to their mobile development environment.

“Mobile is driving much shorter release cycles for application development,” said Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie. “SOASTA’s TouchTest integration with Appcelerator Titanium 3.0 enables our customers to meet their time-to-market demands while improving overall application quality.”

TouchTest is supposed to simplify the testing process, utilizing SOASTA’s patented visual test environment, precision capture and re-play technology. Apps are continuously “testable,” validated and supported through the development lifecycle by leveraging TouchTest’s embedded Jenkins plug-in for 100% hands-free mobile test automation.

“The mobile application lifecycle presents the opportunity for enterprises to re-think their approach to software development,” said SOASTA CEO Tom

Lounibos. “Appcelerator and Soasta recognized this and have combined our best-of-class solutions to present mobile development teams with the fastest, most complete development platform to support continuous testing of mobile applications.”
