We present AndroidRipper, an automated technique that tests Android apps via their Graphical User Interface (GUI). AndroidRipper is based on a user-interface driven ripper that automatically explores the app’s GUI with the aim of exercising the application in a structured manner. We evaluate AndroidRipper on an open-source Android app. Our results(More)
This paper presents a toolset for GUI testing of Android applications. The toolset is centered on a GUI ripper that systematically explores the GUI structure of an application under test with the aim of firing sequences of user events and exposing failures of the application. The toolset supports the execution of a testing procedure that automatically(More)
SUMMARY The rapid, progressive diffusion of Web applications in several productive contexts of our modern society is laying the foundations of a renewed scenario of software development, where one of the emerging problems is that of defining and validating cost-effective approaches for maintaining and evolving these software systems. Due to several factors,(More)
As mobile applications become more complex, specific development tools and frameworks as well as cost effective testing techniques and tools will be essential to assure the development of secure, high-quality mobile applications. This paper addresses the problem of automatic testing of mobile applications developed for the Google Android platform, and(More)
Migration of form based legacy systems towards service-oriented computing is a challenging task, requiring the adaptation of the legacy interface to the interaction paradigm of Web services. In this paper, a wrapping methodology is proposed to make interactive functionalities of legacy systems accessible as Web services. The wrapper that is used for(More)
The rapid and growing diffusion of Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) with their enhanced interactivity, responsiveness and dynamicity is sharpening the distance between Web applications and desktop applications, making the Web experience more and more appealing and user-friendly. This paper presents a technique for testing RIAs that generates test cases(More)
The growing diffusion of Web-based services in many and different business domains has triggered the need for new Web applications (WAs). The pressing market demand imposes very short time for the development of new WAs, and frequent modifications for existing ones. Well-defined software processes and methodologies are rarely adopted both in the development(More)
A relevant complexity factor in developing and testing mobile apps is given by their sensibility to changes in the context in which they run. As an example, apps running on a smartphone can be influenced by location changes, phone calls, device movements and many other typologies of context events. In this paper, we address the problem of testing a mobile(More)
