Keynote Accelerates Automated Testing and Continuous Delivery of Mobile Apps with Jenkins and Selenium Integrations

  • Announces partnership with CloudBees, the enterprise continuous delivery platform leader
SAN MATEO, CA — May 06, 2014 — Keynote, the global leader in mobile and web cloud testing & monitoring, today announced a new integration of Keynote’s industry-leading, cloud-based, on-demand real device testing tool, DeviceAnywhere, with leading open source Continuous Integration (CI) development platform, Jenkins. Specifically, Keynote has introduced their DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for Jenkins plug-in, for automated build acceptance tests (BATs) on real devices from within the popular Jenkins build management platform. Keynote is also partnering with CloudBees, the enterprise continuous delivery leader, to make the DeviceAnywhere plug-in available for the Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees and DEV@cloud continuous delivery solutions.

In addition, Keynote also announced the launch of its DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for Selenium integration, providing users of the popular open source testing tool with access to the most popular Android devices by integrating with the Selenium WebDriver.

The DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for Jenkins integration represents a major breakthrough for mobile developers looking to increase productivity and streamline their testing process by integrating real device testing directly into their build system. Through direct integration with one of the most popular build management tools, the DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for Jenkins plug-in bridges the continuous integration gap between build system and device, allowing developers to test each successive build on real devices without having to manually load their latest build onto any number of real devices before testing.

“Keynote’s DeviceAnywhere integration with Jenkins supports our goal of enabling mobile application testing on real devices with test automation for those mobile builds.” said Andrew Lee, vice president of business development at CloudBees. “This should increase developer productivity and confidence in the QA process, because defects can be detected earlier and a higher quality application can be delivered more quickly.”

In the development world, time is money, but accurate testing and quality assurance are equally important. With the new DeviceAnywhere Enterprise for Jenkins integration, the time savings resulting from not having to manually load apps onto devices before testing can save up to two hours per day. That is up to two hours now freed up for testing teams to perform additional exploratory testing, or to track down any bugs in their previous release. This additional testing and focus on overall quality can often mark the difference between success and failure for a newly launched app.

“We are delighted to offer these two new plugins to enhance the productivity of the open source mobile developer and testing community,” said Nick Halsey, Chief Marketing Officer at Keynote. “The mobile development cycle is all about agility, speed and accuracy – and Jenkins, as the leading continuous integration platform for mobile app development, is a perfect example of that ethos. By providing integrated access to Keynote’s industry‐leading real device testing platform for users of Jenkins and Selenium, we are driving developer productivity while greatly simplifying the continuous delivery process.”
