Eggplant

Cloud-based automated software testing and monitoring tool

About Eggplant

Eggplant is a cloud-based software testing and monitoring platform, which helps businesses test the performance of applications, devices, operating systems, APIs, or databases using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology. Features include test-case generation, real-time analytics, recurring tasks, and trend analysis.

Using the test automation tool, Eggplant Functional, engineers can create, schedule, and run multiple test scripts via the tool's interface or command line. QA professionals can modify various test parameters at runtime such as scaling the number of virtual users for load testing and collect diagnostic data from the server to analyze response times, compare test runs, and more. Testers can use Eggplant AI to auto-generate test cases based on a replicated model of the website or mobile app. The platform lets retailers evaluate customer engagement by tracking their behavior and navigation across the website .

Testing professionals can use the dashboard to monitor progress of ongoing tests and track issues through graphs and health tables. Eggplant offers integration with various third-party applications, including Atlassian Bamboo, IBM RQM Adapter, Jenkins, and IBM UrbanCode Deploy. It also allows healthcare organizations to test and automate a variety of EMR workflows such as patient’s wait time, treatment plans, medication, and more.

Great UI Automation Tool

I used egg plant to automate some of our test cases for patient monitors that was not possible otherwise with other automation tools.
Eggplant is a great tool if you have to do UI automation. But i would recommend to evaluate alternate tools as well since there are many tools available in the market today.

Pros

Eggplant is great. It is so easy to learn and use.
Scripting syntax is easy to understand and master.
Can be used for UI automation at multiple platforms making the tool very extensible .
The test platform is robust and the support is great if you need help.

Cons

Its very easy to learn and create simple scripts in no time, but it requires some training and study to do complex scripting to achieve automation goals.
Very rarely it might happen that the tool reports false positive since tool works based on OCR engine, Have not happened to me yet but i don't trust OCR engines a lot.

Eggplant: Feature-packed Automation

Reviewed on 2020/10/01

We are reducing the amount of testing time spent on Epic integrated testing.

We are reducing the amount of testing time spent on Epic integrated testing.

Pros

1. Support - If I have a question, I can ask via email and have an answer within 24 hrs.
2. Feature-rich - Eggplant is not just automation...it's also automation management.
3. Simple - Eggplant is very simple to learn, yet incredibly powerful.

Cons

1. Complicated installation - I understand why RFD/VNC is required, but I wonder if there isn't a more secure method of connecting to SUT's.
2. I don't have enough time to do everything I want to with Eggplant!

Opinions from a Developer acting as QA

Reviewed on 2020/10/02

Overall, I am very pleased with the software and it has helped us to catch some bugs that would have went into production without it. Many of my complaints with it have to do with Eggplant not being a part of my main work and would be ironed out if I was given more time to give it a gold plating.

Pros

I liked that it allowed for direct screen capture of the SUT and gave us a way to emulate user interaction on multiple platforms with minimal code change required for each device type. But on top of all of that ease of capture, still had a robust scripting language in SenseTalk to allow us to make custom reusable code to really maximize the value.

Cons

The reporting in Eggplant Manager leaves a lot to be desired. I have tried a few times to create a report that will give me the failure/success ratio of my tests but am not able to figure out exactly how to do that without downloading the data and writing something on my own.

Almost perfect on MacOS, a little flaws on Windows

Reviewed on 2018/12/18

If it was not the ML-DL research level requirement, I could automate anything. It was much faster and more elaborate than me, a very experienced tester. The more I try to use it, the more applications I can have and the variety of techniques I can use. The downside is that the limits of my imagination are immediately visible. So that I had to learn more testing skills and domain-specifics.

Pros

Easy to use. But in fact, it's not easy for non-English people. For example, <Click "targetImage"> is really easy to read and understandable, but if there are more code lines like as conditional, comparison and repeat syntax, etc., most beginners who are non-English speaker seemed to give up learning.

Cons

1) It works much better on macOS than on Windows. Perhaps this is due to the completeness of the OS itself. However, the inconvenience caused by the lack of completeness of Windows can give the new user an experience that the products are not good.
2) I know the VNC-protocol is the heart of Eggplant Functional. But I look forward to providing faster, more up-to-date connectivity technology.

We could be here all day! Its excellent and I would and have not hesitated to recommend it to colleagues and employees at other companies. The support and information online is first class, the staff are friendly, approachable and accommodating and do not hesitate to set up calls if additional support is required.

Pros

We used Eggplant Functional and DAI to implement an automation framework for a number of different systems, after initially using a C# based Selenium framework. By making the move to Eggplant we slashed our delivery times and provided a more reliable, robust automated solution. What could have taken us 3 - 4 weeks to achieve in Selenium, took us 1 - 2 days in Eggplant.

Cons

It's very hard to find something. Occasionally we do have weird connection errors BUT these have always been resolved rapidly by the Eggplant Support team which is also absolutely fantastic.
