Configuration Test Automation using Virtual Machines
There are more than 7,000 possible configurations of operating systems, browsers, screen resolutions, and other unique characteristics in today’s computer environments. Learn about a flexible automation framework for functional configuration testing based on an approach developed by Plaxo, Inc. This approach uses multiple virtual operating systems with a pre-installed, commercial automation tool launched on a single Intel-based computer. The results were highly scalable for new configurations under test and allowed the team to test over 30 different configurations on one PC.
