In this blog, we’ll look at what a hybrid application or hybrid app is, the challenges that come with testing a hybrid application, and why hybrid application test automation is important.
When we talk about hybrid applications, we might refer to either a hybrid application or a hybrid work flow. A Hybrid Application, for example, is one that contains both desktop and web components or a work flow that begins on the web and ends on an application on a mobile device in a device farm is a hybrid workflow.
Hybrid applications are extremely complex to develop, but the benefits they provide makes them important for businesses to develop hybrid applications. Businesses require an effective and bug-free hybrid application to deliver a better user experience to their users. To deliver such an application, we should perform proper testing However, the truth is that catching each and every bug isn’t easy. Here regression testing comes into the picture. Regression testing is tim consuming but necessary for product reliability. How do we deal with such scenarios? The answer is test automation.
Nowadays, test automation is becoming more popular. According to the MarketsAndMarkets report, the global Automation testing market is estimated to develop
at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.2% from USD 20.7 billion in 2021 to USD 49.9 billion by 2026. Because of the fast adoption of modern technologies, the automation testing industry is expanding. The increased proclivity of businesses to use modern testing methods such as DevOps and Agile methodologies is related to market growth, and these methods lower automation testing cycle times and help businesses to get Shorter Go-To- Market for their software products.
Hybrid Application Test Automation:
Now let’s see why we require hybrid application test automation. Testing a hybrid application is very tricky and complex. Manually testing a hybrid application is a time- consuming and expensive process. Test automation is the most efficient and effective technique to test software. It saves both time and money, and it also allows testers to identify bugs immediately and helps developers to fix bugs in a short period of time and allows humans to work on other tasks. So, test automation is the best way to test a hybrid application.
There are many frameworks available in the market but only a few are completely automatic; some require manual scripting, and some require a lot of manual intervention. algoQA is a unified platform for End-To-End Test Automation. When using algoQA, profiling is the only step that requires manual intervention.
