Development of a Functionality Testing Tool for Windows Phones


Background/Objectives: The objective of this paper is to develop a testing tool that which tests the Functionality trait of an application that gets installed on the Phone with an Operating System called Windows. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To study the mentioned objective the websites (referred at the end) like tech-recipes, stack overflow and msdn were referred for gaining an idea on how to implement the objective. The tools which involved in giving a shape to the idea involved are Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Express for Phones, Windows WVGA 512MB, Windows Phone 8.0 SDK, Windows 8.1 Professional Operating System. The purpose of choosing Windows 8.1 Professional Edition is because the tool Windows Phone SDK is supported only on that particular Operating System. The refered websites that involve the tutorial for trigerring an applicationfrom another application. http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/49037/how-to-deploy-and-runa-windows-phone-8-app/.http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13669696/test-windows-phone-8-app-on-actual-device. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/applications/ff402565(v=vs.105).aspx. Findings: The Testing Tool has the functionality compared to universally accepted Tools. The Testing Tool does not require sophisticated Hardwares, like other Testing Tools like Egg Plant, Robotium etc. The Testing Tool requires a PC for first time installation (only once in life time), and later can be transfered from one device to the other using Bluetooth. When compared to other tools, it is open source and it does not come with a price tag. The tool takes a negotiable amount of time to fire and execute an application, unlike other tools.
