- New Version Comes with Enhanced Browser and Functional Support; Ease of Use Improved with APIs for "Remote TestKit" -
NTT Resonant Inc. will launch the official browser-based version of "Remote TestKit," further enhancing "Developers AppKitBox-Remote TestKit" ("Remote TestKit," http://appkitbox.com/en/testkit), a cloud-based remote service for verifying smartphone apps and sites. We have provided a beta-version browser service with limited functions for a limited number of smartphones since December 2013. We launch a fully supported browser-based version this time.
Currently the Remote Desktop function in "Remote TestKit" is used by office workers other than developers. These workers have desired a browser-based service for security reasons. This is why NTT Resonant has launched a browser-based version.
For your information, on the browser-based version is limited in terms of the ADB (*1) connection function because its function is focused on look & feel verification.
1. Full-support based web browser versionlaunching the web browser version of "Remote TestKit"
(1) Main features
- Users can use multiple devices at the same time.
- Users can install any application in their computer on the handsets involved.
- Screen rotation of remote smartphones
- Smartphone browser is launched with the designated URL
- Simultaneous screen capture of multiple devices
- Users can set any latitude and longitude (GPS position-setting function)
- Users can use log cat command of ADB
(2) Available devices
All of the devices, 240 units of about 220 models, currently offered for "Remote TestKit"
(3) Browsers ready for the browser version
- Google Chrome (latest version)
- Firefox (latest version)
- Internet Explorer (after Version 10)
- Safari (latest version)
Users with a single account can use both browser and client software versions.

2. New Feature "Remote TestKit" Thrift API
With the already offered ADB interface alone, it was not possible to activate remote-controlled smartphones, even though the remote control of activated handsets was possible. Now, with "Remote TestKit" Thrift API available, users can control the whole process of work ranging from the rental of smartphones to be tested to test implementation and the shutdown of the handsets involved. For example, Jenkins users can integrate "Remote TestKit" software in their own systems.
Examples of Thrift API - API for renting devices and automatically extending rental
- API for capturing web pages
- API for validating virtual adb
- API for capturing screens and recording movies
* For inquiries about how to use "Remote TestKit" API functions, please contact http://appkitbox.com/en/contact.
Examples of API usage
Developers of a new program test it on a handset. Given Thrift API, whenever new codes are committed, it is possible to run automatic tests and make a movie file of the results.
When a new smartphone model is put on sale, website operators confirm by using it if there is any problem with display and other aspects. By using Thrift API, it is possible to create a system in which a new model is tested automatically when it is added to "Remote TestKit" and send test results by email.
3. Adding an auto update function to the client software version
After having users download and install software on every upgrade, "Remote TestKit" will now be automatically upgraded.
4. How to use
Registered users can log into their account at "Developers AppKitBox--Remote TestKit" while first-time users need to register first.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...
