BARCELONA, Spain, February 14, 2011 - TestPlant, the UK-headquartered international software company, has
launched the eggPlant Mobile Testing Solution (
www.testplant.com/mobile/mwc). eggPlant is the world's leading robotic
test tool for GUI testing used by many leading software companies, by
significant defence, security and aerospace organisations and by global media
broadcasters and on-line entertainment businesses. The mobile testing
solution extends eggPlant's reach into software running on smartphones and
tablets across the major mobile operating systems. The launch is in
partnership with RealVNC, the original developer and leading provider of
VNC(R) technology used by millions of computer users around the world.

Testing software or apps on mobile devices is a major pain point for app
developers, for device manufacturers and for network operators. There has not
been an effective in house automated solution to testing software on the full
range of devices. Existing techniques are either manual, which is extremely
tedious and error-prone, or electro-mechanical, which is limited, does not
reproduce a real user experience test and can place IP outside the enterprise
environment. eggPlant uses RealVNC's VNC Mobile Solution to connect directly
to a device. A true user experience test is created as eggPlant is capable of
recognising icons, colours, text and fields on any display. A test script is
automatically generated as eggPlant is trained to move around an app using
its image store to spot and compare display prompts. Multiple tests become
effortless and eggPlant reports test failures with helpful screen images of
the exact point of failure. An automated test script can be created on one
device (or emulator) to be repeated many times on other devices.
