Mobile Resource Adaptive Built-In Test
With the growing importance of mobile software systems there is also an increasing need for methods and tools to develop such systems.
Quality assurance of mobile applications is, in particular, a challenging task. Common software test approaches cannot be used because:
- They are applicable only at development time. In mobile applications we need the tests at run time, since components can be added
or removed at any time. Thus, the application context is changing steadily.
- They do not take into account the restricted resources of mobile devices e.g., computation capacity, band width.
Thus, we need new strategies to guarantee the reliability of mobile applications. In the MORABIT project we are working on such a new strategy.
Our goal is to develop a distributive resource – adaptive test infrastructure for mobile software applications. We will devise a conceptual framework
and methodology for designing and implementing mobile component-based systems with a focus on support for testing. Our infrastructure overcomes
the obstacles of testing mobile applications using intelligent agents and Built-In-Tests.
