ACTION BASED TESTING TEMPLATE IS NOW AVAILABLE

Action Based Testing (ABT) is an efficient method of test development that provides a systematic approach to avoid the significant issues that limit the success of automated testing. It is a great method for test development and to facilitate that LogiGear has developed an ABT template that provides both the syntax and structure for developing ABT tests. The basic template can be found on page 10, and a fully documented template can be found at https://www.testarchitect.com/support/action-based-testing/how-to-write-test-module.

HANS BUWALDA TO PRESENT AT STAREAST MAY 4

LogiGear CTO Hans Buwalda will share his experiences and present strategies for organizing and managing testing on large projects at STAREAST. He will present how to design tests specifically for automation, including how to incorporate keyword testing and other techniques. Also covered is what roles virtualization and the cloud can play—and the potential pitfalls of such options. He will also give tips and tricks to make automation more stable, and to deal with the numerous versions and configurations common in large projects.

A CASE FOR BETTER SECURITY TESTING

According to a report by Autoblog, a 14-year old boy, who was part of the 2014 CyberAuto Challenge, was able to remotely hack into a car with nothing but a handful of parts from RadioShack and an iPhone. What’s worse is that he was able to crack the vehicle’s security systems in one day, with materials that cost just $15.

Like something out of the Watch Dogs video game, the boy in question (who has not been named) collected the parts and spent the night assembling a homemade circuit board. The next day, he was able to operate the vehicle’s wipers, lights, door locks, and even the remote start feature. He even played a song from his phone through the car’s speakers, flashing the headlights to the beat in a clever taunt.

iOS PUBLIC BETA AVAILABLE FROM MARCH

After its successful public beta program for OS X Yosemite, Apple is said to expand the program that would mean forthcoming versions of its mobile operating system, beginning with iOS 9, would be subject to the same assessment. The iOS public beta release highlights just how open Apple is becoming. Apple has already allowed a million members of the public to sign up to test OS X Yosemite, and that might be the same approach that it takes with iOS 9. Of course, anyone that signs up to Apple’s developer programs can road test the betas, but that’s not a free program and requires a yearly membership.
