Combining web and mobile in a single test


#1

So, we’ve been using Katalon Studio for a few months now and are very happy with the web-based and mobile testing so far. Now we would like to go a step further and write a test combining both technologies.

In our proposed test we need to be able to define a task in a PC browser GUI (so selenium-based), process and complete the task in a mobile app (so appium-based), including a commentary on what was done, and check back in the browser on the PC that the task is shown as complete and the commentary is visible.

At the moment we can only choose one technology when we launch a test, as I understand (e.g. Chrome, or Android, but not both). Is it possible to combine both in a single test case, and if so how?

Thanks in advance for your good ideas!
Phil

Hey @philip.ward

Wow. When I read the title of this post my first thought was, “that’s a crazy idea, who would want to do that?”. Having read the post, wow, yes, a perfectly reasonable (if complex) test scenario.

I don’t have an answer. But to get maximum exposure, I would forgive you posting this twice - add another post in the Mobile forum category with a link to this thread. Then I’ll close it with a note to continue discussion here.

Good luck.
