Web Service and  Mobile App Testing:

In a generic terminology, we can say that: Web services are packet sized applications that communicate with each other via network but in a precise format. The output of one software used as an input to another reciprocally and the whole process executed with interface language like XML.

Mobile app testing is a strategic approach to detect bugs and fix them before your customers identify them. It’s evident that scalable and user-friendly applications win the race and gives your product wide recognition. Mobile app testing does it with it’s set of approach right from installation, the target device and OS, UI/UX usability, functionality, interrupts, data network, hardware, and performance, and many other parameters.

Prioritization depends upon your needs!

Web services provide comprehensiveness to numerous applications that are classified in terms of usage and considerations. Reuse of codes for interacting with existing programs is one of the strong reasons why many prefer to rely on it. Developers can use the web service methodologies to segment the applications into packet size for future use for various needs. In a situation when multiple programs need a conversion tool/reporting function, then you can use a universal communication protocol of web services to execute it. In other words, web services are so handy that you can use to loop multiple data between various platforms. As a result, all applications will have the presence of a web services component which helps you to pick the program you need and run it into a fully inter-portable one.

Uses of Web Services

  • XML semantics makes it self-contained and self-describing
  • Open standards make it inter-portable irrespective of the programming language or OS used
  • Any application can send a service request to the server at a hosted location and receive the response for the request raised
  • Used as a multi-enterprise extension of internal SOA’s, which can also be used in traditional multi-enterprise integration approaches
  • With the help of WSDL and UDDI server can publish their services, and the client can access to find the service they need

The influence of modern advancement in digital space such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and the Internet of Things transforming the mobile apps to the next level, so is mobile app testing. Customers are smart now, they know the technicality of the app even when they don’t have access to the manual. As a result demand for immaculate apps increasing which requires full-fledged end-to-end test implementation for defects free apps to the market release. Therefore, mobile app testing is an integral part of the development process. Moreover, mobile app testing intensifies the overall view of the application by ensuring each section like functionality, usability, consistency, interruption, and security. 

Uses of Mobile App Testing

  • Helps to align the customer expectations, business goals and industry best practices for better business opportunity
  • Gives the fine details to ensure whether app syncs well with back-end infrastructure or not
  • When right testing methodologies are implemented, it enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of the app that can go to market in a short time
  • The influence of cloud could bring down the testing expense and reach the market faster than the usual testing practice 
  • Flexibility to test applications in varying network conditions, which makes your product perform well across the complex network scenarios

Considerations of Web services and Mobile app testing before you prioritize:

Web Services

Mobile App Testing

Flexibility to access web services through a peer-to-peer arrangement instead of a central server aloneSeamless solutions to ensure the functionality 
Convenience to reuse code and connect it to existing programsAccess to complete ideation of UI/UX usability
Developers can structure applications into components for future use Ensures robustness of the application view and forbid the financial liabilities that can come from customer distress
Can be used to link data among numerous different platforms Advancement in cloud adoption in testing helps to save costs related to infrastructure and enhance the application quality
Advantage of the turning program into an interoperable modelAdoption of mobile simulator makes way for compelling network bypass, pseudo live environment, and test scripting languages which helps to boost the faster time-to-market

Technology is growing at a rapid pace while transforming the IT ecosystem to a new digital world. In this regard, web services and mobile app testing are replacing the existing practices with a new one to help businesses to secure first place in the race. As a result, enterprises are using web services in communication and exchanging data between applications to ensure seamless integration for better communication. Whereas mobile app testing is equally in the hype with its new tools that provide visual analytics so that developers can understand the user interaction with an application and quickly make the changes as-is. Hence prioritizing web service or mobile app testing merely depends on your requirements and considerations.
