Learning in mobiles devices with Katalon

2019-04-18

Management of reports and continuous integration with BDD in cucumber.

Pros

This software is easy to use and the documentation is easy to access because the community itself supports with good comments and in several cases provide the step-by-step detail to give solution in the mobile device

Cons

Katalon on mobile devices is a bit complex to install, because it does not include the appium configuration to run on the console in the download package and it is up to installing the necessary libraries to run on node.js

Makes life easy

2019-08-14

We have managed to fill in the gaps that Postman has left wide open in being able to share reports with teammates, using BDD/Cucumber in API testing, and being able to integrate with Jira.

Pros

What I like about this software is the fact that I can perform API, Web UI, and Mobile Applications testing all in one suite.

Cons

You guys are making improvements on your reporting tool, but it used to be a major headache.

plug n play automation software with many built in keywords

2019-08-14

We adopted the tool after I highly spoke of it to higher management as they trust me as our main testing tool on the current project I'm working on.

Pros

It allow to somebody with no or little coding knowledge to get started in test automation with its intuituous interface and built in keywords.

Cons

Some glitches still exist in some fields such as soap api calls where not all endpoints are loaded correctly and some improvemetns could be done in order to completely replace soap ui usage in my case.

Good automation tool with multiple features

2019-04-18

Using this tool has really helped us in our automation framework for easy management of building customize libraries using page objects identification plus providing code export feature.

Pros

I really like the code export feature as this is something which is missing in Selenium FF Add-on and it becomes very helpful in building automation framework with customize code.

Cons

Code deployment to different environment and integration with DevOps.

But as mentioned in cons, it also need to do some fine tunings like adding support for other languages, providing easily understandable material and some fine tuning to become the real competitor for selenium.

Pros

User friendly UI. 3. API testing, web testing, android/iOS testing all at one place. 4.

Cons

Unlike selenium, it has very less online support and material by real users. 3.

Totally worth it!

2019-08-14

Mostly for API testing and cross-browser testing.

Pros

It supports a good amount of testing types, from API to Cross-browser.

Cons

For now, it works great - but there is still a limitation in some script languages, which might become an issue in the future. The platform is a closed source- something that takes it toll on the community around it - which is small, for now. I believe making the platform open-source will drive in the community more developers and users.
