Title: Smart Phone Tool Specification
Published: April 23, 2010
Abstract: This paper defines requirements for mobile device applications capable of acquiring data from smart phones operating over a Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) network and a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) network, and test methods used to determine whether a specific tool meets the requirements for producing measurable results. Test requirements are statements used to derive test cases that define expectations of a tool or application. Test cases describe the combination of test parameters required to test each assertion. Test assertions are described as general statements or conditions that can be checked after a test is executed. Each assertion appears in one or more test cases consisting of a test protocol and the expected test results. The test protocol specifies detailed procedures for setting up the test, executing the test, and measuring the test results. The associated assertions and test cases are defined in the test plan document entitled: Smart Phone Acquisition Tool Test Assertions and Test Plan.
