Posted by terrencebarr on May 27, 2009 at 4:44 PM PDT


Today marks the release of the Java Device Test Framework (JDTF) project into the Java Mobile & Embedded Community.

JDTF is a test framework based on Sun Microsystems Java Device Test Suite (JDTS) product. JDTF is a general purpose, fully-featured, flexible, and configurable test framework suited to assess various aspects of Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) device implementation quality, such as fitness, interoperability, reliability, and performance. The framework is a set of JT harness plug-ins that facilitates the running of quality test suites on Java ME devices.

Java Application Terminal Alignment Framework (JATAF) has chosen JDTF as the test framework for running its test suite. JATAF is a collaboration between four companies - Orange, SonyEricsson, Sun Microsystems and Vodafone


DeviceAnyWhere Pro kind of Test Automation

Hi Terraence, Would this test framework allow the developers to build test automation around the JavaME applications which developers develop. i.e Does it support writing of the tests like the DeviceAnyWher Pro API of MobileComplete test automation solution.. If not are there any plans for JSR team to introduce such api in future to write automated tests a breeze in the mobile world.. Regards, Raja Nagendra Kumar, C.T.O TejaSoft


I am not an expert in test automation so I am not very familiar with DeviceAnyWhere Pro. Have you looked at the JDTF documentation? Also, you could post your question on the JDTF forums.
