Published

Author(s)

Richard P. Ayers

Abstract

This paper defines assertions and test cases for mobile device applications capable of acquiring data from mobile devices operating over a Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) networks, used to determine whether a specific tool meets the requirements producing measurable results. The assertions and test cases are derived from the requirements defined in the document entitled: Smart Phone Tool Specification. Test cases describe the combination of test parameters required to test each assertion. Test assertions are described as general statements of 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.
