Perfecto Lab - configuration, network, and development tools requirements

Perfecto Mobile provides the Perfecto Lab Plug-in which allows users to work with devices, record operations, and run their test in a convenient way all from within common IDE like Eclipse, Android Studio, Intellij, Visual Studio, UFT, etc.

Common IDE integration implements the main Selenium interfaces, following Selenium concepts and practices. All IDE capabilities, such as code re-factoring and step-by-step debugging, can be used. The code can run as a standalone Java, Python, C#, etc. applications, and can be executed from different testing frameworks such as TestNG or JUnit.

Java code generated via Eclipse, Android Studio, etc. can be developed and executed by any tool for java development and execution.

UFT integration, is designed with HP, and along with the CQ Lab for HP UFT, allows developers to test mobile apps on real-world devices – all from within the HP framework. Our HP UFT / QTP tool enables agile development via VB of extremely user-friendly, secure, high-performance mobile apps.

Plugin views

The Perfecto Lab plugin includes two views:

  • Perfecto Lab - used for opening devices, recording operations, and interactively interacting with the device.
  • Perfecto Dashboard - used for viewing devices during execution.

Once you have completed the Perfecto Lab plugin installation, you will be able to work with the Perfecto Lab perspective that includes these two Perfecto Lab project views.

Note: When running an execution, the device does not have to be open in the Perfecto Lab view to see it in the dashboard.

Follow each IDE installation guide:
