Advanced Support for iOS and Android Native Test Automation Frameworks Enhances Continuous Testing for Mobile App Development

Posted Sep 27th, 2018

Today, we announced advanced support for iOS and Android Native Test Automation Frameworks. This means whether you come from a testing or a development background, we support a framework that will make it seamless for you to continuously test your mobile apps.

Mobile test automation engineers have long enjoyed our integration and support for Appium. Now, developers can more easily experience the benefits of mobile native test automation frameworks on our Continuous Testing Cloud. Since native test automation frameworks such as XCUITest and Espresso are built directly into their respective Integrated Development Environments (IDE), developers can get tests up and running fast and gain immediate access to the debugging tools available within the IDE. By supporting both native test frameworks as well as Appium, Sauce Labs offers customers more options to improve their developer productivity.

With the Sauce Labs Continuous Testing Cloud, developers can scale mobile test automation quickly and effectively, creating robust and reusable code to keep pace with CI/CD and improve the quality of mobile apps.

  • Faster Test Execution - Device caching for XCUITest and Espresso allows users to continually execute test suites without constant provisioning of devices.
  • Advanced Parallel Test Execution - Developers can run a subset of tests against specific devices instead of the entire suite of tests on one device, as well as run tests in parallel across multiple devices using one runner for both Espresso and XCUITest.
  • Simplified CI/CD Integration - Parallel testing and test case setting via a simple configuration file.

Sauce Labs continues to offer the largest and most reliable test automation grid across all mobile platforms, including emulators, simulators and real devices.
