MENDEZ-PORRAS, Abel; ALFARO-VELASCO, Jorge  and  MARTINEZ, Alexandra. Evaluation of an Automated Testing Framework: A Case Study. Tecnología en Marcha [online]. 2020, vol.33, n.3, pp.3-12. ISSN 0379-3982.

Developing mobile applications without defects or in a minimum number is an important challenge for programmers and quality assurance teams. Automated software test can be the key to improve the traditional manual testing, often time consuming and repetitive. Mobile applications support user-interaction characteristics, which are independent from the application logic. They include content presentation or navigation features, such as scroll or zoom into screens, and a rotating device.

In this paper, an automated testing framework is proposed and evaluated. This framework integrates user- interaction features, historical bug information, and an interest points detector and descriptor to identify new bugs. It has shown that it works well detecting bugs associated with user-interactions.

Keywords : Software quality assurance; automated software testing; mobile applications; SURF; userinteraction features; software engineering.
