What is our primary use case?

The primary reason that we got Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is that we have a couple of systems that are run through virtual machines. Everybody who uses it in our company needs to go through a virtual machine. This solution was the only testing system that was able to run that virtual machine and test within it. It was the best that we found. What we're mostly testing are web pages and Windows apps; Oracle transportation systems. They could have done local installs, but they put them in VMware and this was the best way to test them.

Pros and Cons

  • "DAI's newest release allows us to test via scripts rather than models, because we have done 95 percent of our development in functional, not through modeling. I am really happy that then we can use the controller to run scripts rather than having to translate things to models. There are lots of options."
  • "The IDE could be even more full-featured. Because I was a developer, I was very spoiled by either Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio for shortcuts. For example, I was able to say "ctor" and hit Tab and it would create a template of a constructor for me... It would be great, when I want to create a new function, if there were shortcut commands like those that helped create all of the functions, or if there were shortcut features to do any of the complex plans."

What other advice do I have?

Jump in and try it. Don't be afraid of it. Before COVID, Eggplant would train a client for two weeks onsite and then everything would be handled through tech support. Not that the worldwide pandemic was good, but because of COVID we started getting a weekly meeting with one of their tech people, and that has been awesome. He's been a great resource. We go through scripts with him, we can send him something and he can respond back via email. But we also have face time where we can say, "Hey, I tried this, it didn't work," and we can sit there and work together through the issue and figure it…

Significantly reduced our testing time while increasing our accuracy, producing extremely precise results

What is our primary use case?

We use Eggplant for robotic process automation across several use cases. We primarily use it to test television set-top boxes, and we also use it for some automated content matching and for over-the-top streaming device testing as well. The automation and the testing that we perform with eggplant is really for automation that allows us to generate data via our products, to validate that the data being generated is what we expect. Our primary use cases are for post-development, operational validation and support.

Pros and Cons

  • "The features that we like the most are the developer interface and the ability to quickly develop and deploy tests."
  • "If one area could be improved, it would be some of their documentation. In particular, some of their online help and user support documentation is a little bit out of date and could be revised and updated on a more frequent basis. Other than that, I haven't really found any issues or problems."

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be try it before you buy it. They offer a trial copy and you have plenty of time to build some prototypes. The speed at which you can actually be up and running is great, so that during the trial period you can very quickly find out how well the solution is going to meet your needs. See if you can build a prototype that meets your needs quickly and if you can do that, then you're going to be in good shape. We use the basic, core functionality of Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence, where we develop tests in the user interface and usually execute them via the command line…

Enables you to insert all the various elements into the repository and then run your tests

What is our primary use case?

I'm a Test Tool Expert and we're customers of Eggplant Functional and have a good relationship with them. We were the first company in Switzerland to use them. We automate regression tests and there are eight people in the company currently using the product - some are testers and some developers. On a given day there would two or three people using the product, others might use it once a week or once a month.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features would be the image recognition and the OCR."
  • "In terms of additional features, it would be helpful to have one package for all testing. You have the manager, the AI, then you have functional, and about 10 different packages for installing."

What other advice do I have?

The product isn't pre-installed. We use xCloud. It really is a very good product, very cool. I would rate the product a nine out of 10.
