Appvance IQ is one of the test automation tools, and it has some setting up techniques to prepare or create test cases or test scripts or test content or use cases in numerous ways.
We can produce the scripts for functional testing, compatibility testing, performance, and load testing, synthetic API Automation, etc.
1.1 Appvance Overview Structure
Why use Appvance IQ?
- Manual hours: There is less manual work compared to other scripting languages. For example, Appvance IQ automates most scripting work using machine-generated tests, leading to incredible productivity, speed, and coverage improvements.
- Less is more: This AIQ uses AI to authorize each testing person with the resultant of 100 manpower. This makes them massively more productive versus their single manpower with current test automation.
- Exponential test increase: Testing teams easily create and execute exponentially more tests than any other automation tool compared with Appvance IQ. This collection of tests broadly covers what actual end-users do in production environments, making it 100% user-specific.
Component Approach in Appvance IQ
Most companies follow a “Test” and Trash” methodology to accomplish a shortened software development life cycle. For example, an organization may plan a quick product release with changes to 30% of an application in just 8 weeks.
AIQ recommends a component methodology to build tests. Test components perform specific test operations. We write or record tests as individual modules of the test function.
For example, a component operates the login function of a private Web application. When the login portion of the application changes, we only need to change the login test, and the rest of the test remains to perform typically.
Appvance cares about the component approach in many ways: AIQ Appvance Designer records reusable test objects, Appvance scenario builder organizes test objects into Test Cases with multiple steps and parameterized test use cases, and AIQ supports test script creation during a sort of dynamic language (Java, Ruby, Perl, etc.) create reusable software classes.
1.2 Component Approach
Appvance IQ arranges factors of a test into a functional test, load test, performance test using a Test Scenario. For illustration, an e-commerce web application test has a login step, search step, and checkout step. Use the AIQ Test Developer to record a component for each step.
The test script identifies the recorded components in a test use case. When the login page of the application changes, only the login module needs to be updated.
All the applications will have a set of software modules, Hardware, DB, Frameworks, UI and OS Services, etc. Generally, once the product is delivered to the customer, there may be a maintenance phase based on the customer’s request.
So during that phase, there is no dedicated QA for the single application. There is a chance of handling n number of projects in the
Maintenance phase. So each time, it’s impossible to retest the whole module and move on.
1.3 Enterprise Cycle
Here AIQ (Appvance IQ) will do a better job 90–98% job is maintained here without any module changes.
So post-production or pre-production AIQ will generate scripts automatically and run the scripts. There is an automatic test generation, and standard fields will populate automatically.
So here, after project release, BA needs to tell the feature to test QA, but in AIQ, this is different in generating scripts and executing with previously developed data. So it will test the whole functional way, not based on the module changes.

Appvance IQ for DevOps
- It resolves for DevOps / IT job altogether, not for dev and QA. This makes more money in the market.
- It’s a data-driven script, completely machine updated. No manual intervention.
- This will enhance the bug finding and code coverage for other use cases.
- It’s a machine 100 times faster in writing scripts than a human.
- Similar way for mobile applications too.
We can split the script like Business-driven logic (application URL, login credentials), etc. all those are purely written by Java script. Moreover, it can handle the other scripts as well.
1.4 DOM Object Model Support
Here no need to write a wait script; additionally, AIQ will automatically do wait. Appvance tool creates less code, and it supports multiple languages and Android and MAC operating systems.
1.5 Scenario Builder and Support
Appvance tool has the scenario builder based on the script input given. It automatically ensures the test type with the data multiple times. As a result, there is 80% less maintenance and accessor prioritization.
1.6 Accessor Prioritization
We can write and maintain the scripts faster, and this AI increases the coverage. In addition, it reduces the time to find bugs with no human intervention.
It will take a snapshot and video bit by bit. So developers will understand the bug 10 times faster by the video/snapshot bit by bit.
1.7 Developer Fix Options
How fast is this Appvance script execution?
In a general example, if we compare using selenium, to automate the e-commerce application, we need to specify each accessor rightly and define the methods or functions accordingly.
So generally, from login to cart in selenium scripts, minimum execution takes 20 minutes, but in Appvance IQ, the same execution will be 20X times faster.
In the Appvance IQ IDE tool, we can launch the application URL. Then, the user can perform the manual flow in the application; it can automatically pull the XPath and create the scripts.
1.8 AIQ Speed Test
Features and Benefits
We can go for 3 million concurrent users for functional and performance. 5000 regression test in parallel execution will run in 10 minutes.
Appvance scripts are 20x faster than selenium, and they identify the path errors using self-healing scripts. This tool is available in all modern libraries and reuses the functional, performance, load testing tests, etc.
Operate AIQ tests from Continuous Integration environments. In addition, Appvance checks AIQ compatibility with Hudson, Bamboo, and Jenkins.
1.9 Integration Support in
This supports the above popular tools for CI integrations, and it’s visible for the configurations and execution with all the CICD pipelines.
These have a lot of data when it comes to reporting. It has links to each recorded video. Whenever a developer clicks on it, it will reproduce the recorded item.
Unified Test Platform stores the results of every test, every step, and failure to a Results Repository (normally MySQL or Oracle RDBMS) as it operates the test.
Unified Test Platform displays the results in the Controller window from the Start Screen. Analysis Reports display the leads to a browser-based website by making live requests to the Results Repository.
1.10 Report Template
Use the browser’s ad refresh command to update the results as the test operates. Controller windows communicate with the Test Nodes, Results Repository, and AIQ Monitors while operating a test to give a live view of the results.
