Appium

Appium is well suited for native, mobile web, and hybrid applications of android and iOS but it does not support Windows mobile applications.

TestComplete

Our software has about 1000 symbols that can be inserted into AutoCAD. This job is manual and tedious. Using TestComplete, i have scripted this so that it places each symbol on the page, and moves along like a typewriter. When it hits the edge of the page, it drops a line, when it gets to the bottom of the page, it moves to a new area of modelspace and repeats the process until all symbols are inserted. This is a job that is very important to ensure all of our symbols place successfully AND correctly,I have also scripted an entire run through our Ribbon menus in most of our products, doing the most basic execution tests - i.e. does the command work in isolation. This is another tedious and long test that is now quick and easy using TestComplete

Pros

Appium

  • It uses WebDriver API so it makes it easy to use for former web test automation engineers.
  • It can be managed via the command line via an extensive set of parameters.
  • It handles implicit waits at the server side that is especially valuable in distributed infrastructure.

TestComplete

  • The fact that the tool supports multiple scripting languages is great. It supports JScript, JavaScript, and Python to name just three. This makes it easy for me to recruit test automation engineers to do the work.
  • The distributed execution module is great in the sense that it helps us to cut our Test suite execution time by more than half.
  • The TestExecute module is very useful. It's not costly and is light weight. The Command Line Interface makes it flexible for us to write schedule jobs.

Cons

Appium

  • It should provide reliable & promising executions every time, without any interruptions
  • Avoid any synchronization issues
  • Supporting to Windows mobile applications also in future.

TestComplete

  • I would like to have the ability to export test results in bulk, from the Project Workspace section; currently, you can only export one test case execution at a time in HTML format.
  • From time to time, I've run into an issue with object recognition, where TestComplete was not able to find some of our custom coded controls due to its multiple layer structure (Infragistics combined with WinForms, etc.). Our application uses a lot of search result grids, which are Infragistics control grids, and by using the keyword test script approach, I am not able to easily read the values and properties of the individual cells of the grid; object spy treats the entire grid as one element, one control.

Besides the good GUI with flexible settings, application has a great support. Customers are involved in development process, can send feature requests and vote for them. Some of my requests already implemented or coming soon.

If you develop a mobile application and your testing process goes in cloud, probably you will face a problem - how to implement a stable connection between your mobile devices and testing servers

Alternatives Considered

Appium

Appium is one of the most valuable fully featured open-source tools with good support for iOS and Android mobile automation which cannot be matched even by enterprise tools.

TestComplete

We also have a Selenium-based internal framework recently created in-house, but compared to TestComplete it is now up to the level of what TestComplete contains and MS Visual Studio(using Selenium) to me is a development tool and not a testing tool like TestComplete is. Keep things simple is a key point in automation. There is a cost for both ways. A maint. license with TestComplete for the latest updates and support. With MS VS(Selenium) you do have to pay for the MS Visual Studio, and Selenium being open-source, broken content may/may not be fixed anytime soon.

Return on Investment

Appium

  • Improvement in Release Process Speed
  • Reduce the Manual Testing and Manual Testers team

TestComplete

  • If you plan out correctly how you want to use TestComplete for testing, this will control how your ROI will be. If poorly used, you will have bad ROI, but if correctly used you will have great ROI per your area of testing and how often you run your testing.
  • A great ROI is achieved if you maintain your automation FWK(s), scripts, environments, and data.
  • Negative ROI is achieved if the person(s) doing automation fail to test as required per the development cycle to release. And if no issues are detected, be sure the scripts are again designed to think outside the box for positive and negative testing scenarios.
