CA Application Test

IF you are looking for api testing solution along with service virtualization, then look no further than this tool. This tool also forces you to move your testing lifecycle to much earlier phases of development which helps overall SDLC.

Same test case scripts can be executed on different mobiles irrespective of operating systems and language it supports. This covers a wide range of devices (Android, iOS, Blackberry etc) on which automated testing can be performed in very less time. The test scripts are written written using keyword-based Script Once Technology. The creation of scripts are easy. It saves time and effort. Repetitive testing on each iteration would be now be less tedious. This would also allow QA to focus on quality. It would expand test case coverage in the application and finally release reliable/robust application. In all, improving the app quality.

Cons

CA Application Test

  • This tool comes with a license cost and not free. Many open source tools offer free api testing solution and so making some functionality of this tool as open source would be good
  • Load testing piece is not integrated with in the tool and rather uses Blaze meter which is free.
  • Some integration with UI and api testing will make this tool even more attractive

  • It has a lot of room for improvements in terms of reporting and integration with other reporting and defect tools.
  • It should have the capability of capturing charts data.
  • It should be able to do some scenarios that only manual testers can do. Like - use of camera and touch ID features.

Alternatives Considered

CA Application Test

It definitely is among the top leaders in API testing and virtualization along with the Parasoft SOA tool. Many open source API testing libraries such as Rest Assured, Karate and even Postman and SOAP UI are free which is a little bit against CA.

Perfecto has a wide array of mobile devices we can chose from. Automation is easier using OCR technology. The test script generated detailed report of the executed test script at the end with vast variety of information such as actual results, screen captures in digital format, continuous video recording of the entire script and graphs showing statistics about the execution

Return on Investment

CA Application Test

  • This tool gave a very positive ROI in our group. Especially with service virtualization where we minimized the downtime in our test environments significantly.
  • Also, service virtualization helps to minimize the costs of hitting third party services often in lower environments.

  • Can be used by testers across the globe.
