What's New in 12.21 and 12.50

Versions 12.21 and 12.50 introduced the following features and enhancements:

  • Integration with Mobile Center:

    Sprinter works with Mobile Center to perform manual testing of mobile applications. Sprinter for Mobile Center requires a Mobile Center instance, but does not require an active ALM connection. Sprinter for Mobile Center provides advanced functionality and tools to make manual testing more efficient and effective.

    Manual testing often requires that you leave your testing application to accomplish tasks related to your test. For example, you may need to use graphic software to take a screen capture of your application, you may want to record a movie of the application during the test, and you need to switch to your defect tracking software to report defects.

    Sprinter for Mobile Center enables you to accomplish these tasks without disrupting your test flow. With Sprinter for Mobile Center, you can also perform many of the repetitive and tedious tasks of manual testing automatically. Sprinter for Mobile Center includes many tools to help you detect and submit defects. These features ensure that you can perform all the tasks necessary for your manual test with minimum interruptions to your testing work.

    Sprinter for Mobile Center also enables you to create, edit, and manage manual tests directly through a user interface, and then save them to the file system.

    For details, see Run Mobile App Tests.

  • An external defect tracking system, supporting ALM, JIRA, and Bugzilla.
  • An API to enhance and implement additional defect tracking systems is provided with Sprinter
