Efficiency Greatly Improves with Addition of Automatic Test Function to "Developers AppKitBox - Remote TestKit"

TOKYO, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NTT Resonant Inc. added on March 17 an automatic test function to "Developers AppKitBox - Remote TestKit" (http://appkitbox.com/en/testkit), a cloud-based remote smartphone app and website verification service featuring a host of handsets rented on a time-shared basis for testing. Now, developers can test multiple handsets simultaneously, using a single test script created with Selenium (*1). "Remote TestKit" automatically produces a report on test results, showing an all-in-one list of their screen shots for confirmation. This will allow developers to reduce testing time.

In addition, NTT Docomo's easy-to-use "Raku-Raku SMART PHONE" was added to a rental list for "Remote TestKit" -- cloud-based smartphone app/website verification service.

(*1) Selenium is an open-source test tool. It enables developers to create test scripts directly by handling a web browser.

1. Automatic test function

Smartphones have model-to-model differences, requiring developers to take much time as they have to run even a single test on multiple handsets. Now with "Remote TestKit" fitted with the automatic test function, developers can run a single test script on multiple smartphones simultaneously. Test results are automatically stored together with screen shots for each handset. Developers can confirm the test results with the all-in-one list. The problem of developers can thus be resolved. This function is available only for the users of the "Flat Plan."

Please visit the website (http://appkitbox.com/en/testkit/auto-test) for the video explaining the automatic test function in detail.

2. Outline of other updates

(1) NTT Docomo's "Raku-Raku SMART PHONE" added to rental service list
NTT Docomo's "Raku-Raku SMART PHONE(easy-to-use mobile phones for beginners)" is added to a list of smartphones available for "Remote TestKit". The smartphone is equipped with the Docomo-customized Android OS.

(2) More flexible timing of releasing rental handsets for "Flat Plan" users
Developers are now able to release rental smartphones at any time of their choice. Previously, they had to wait for at least 30 minutes before renting another handset for testing. Now, developers can release a handset even if the remaining period is less than 30 minutes and rent another one. This function is available for "Flat Plan" users.

(3) Mac OS users can use "adb shell" start function
Mac OS users can start up the "adb shell" function directly from the menu. A similar function is already available for Windows clients.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
