Likelihood to Recommend

Apache Cordova

It is suitable for making portable applications, with almost the same code for several platforms. You can access native features of the device or use an open source plug-in from the repository to create a local database and access the internal storage of the device. It is wonderful for the construction of a native application, through the use of standard web code. It is not recommended for enterprise applications.

JavaScript and JSON support, Test Studio supports JavaScript function invocation and validation directly from your code. The testing tool also understands JSON objects, can handle strongly typed objects returned from JavaScript, as well as access to J QUERY API's.

Pros

Apache Cordova

  • Cordova is a very powerful tool for a JavaScript developer, since by simply developing in JavaScript one becomes a general developer of software and applications by implementing web technologies for various environments.
  • Cordova is not just an HTML application that runs in a browser, it allows you to write native plugins that work with any of the supported platforms, and a JavaScript container will integrate your HTML application with the native code.
  • Cordova does an amazing job in the field of hybrid application is super easy to use and functional.

  • Very user friendly and easy to learn.
  • Good language support, it does not require you to write code in a lot of scenarios.

Cons

Apache Cordova

  • It is not completely automatic since if you write individual style information for each platform objective, you can not make Córdova automatically apply the transormation at compile time; you have to change the linked style manually.
  • The support is deficient in general.
  • Configuration and use can be complicated as it requires the use of the command line.

Telerik

  • You can convert all your step codes, but can't revert them back.
  • It's not free and costly too.
  • It's standalone and if you need to use VS Plugin it requires an extra VS Professional or higher license.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Cordova

We selected Cordova since it provides ease of doing business and ease of use. The best thing about Cordova is that you can code once and run it on multiple platforms. Cordova provides add-ons that connect your code with native features of various mobile platforms. And you do not need to learn anything new since you can use your javascript skills

Return on Investment

Apache Cordova

  • It has a positive impact in general. Cordova is really a great solution for web developers who want to bring their incredible ideas to devices, but they just do not have a lot of time to put into iOS and Android learning curves.
  • Our biggest benefit was that the management of images for multiple devices.
  • Developing with Cordova has drastically reduced the cost of cross-platform deployment.

Telerik

  • If the DOM of your application is heavy then Test studio will create lots of performance issues while recording, like Test studio.
  • The application can sometimes hang.
