Configuration Test Automation using Virtual Machines

Vladimir Belorusets, Plaxo

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.
