As the name suggest, Test DPC for Android is specifically designed to stimulate the device policy controller. Even though it is categorized under the Library and Demo, it works the same as simulator. It will be a great help for other application developers to monitor the performance of their application. Conventionally, after producing certain application, a developer needs to know how their application will be have on particular Android version. That is exactly what this application has to offer. A developer can take advantages of the feature it has to offer.
The main feature is the work profile. This profile is completely customizable. It means that a developer can change the parameter on the profile according to specific criteria of an Android device. Other than managing the work profile, the developers who want to test their application can also customize the security profile as well. Such customizations are necessary to make sure that the application will behave as it intended. The easy customization feature also includes the application restriction.
How a developer can understand whether the application tested is behaving properly or not? The answer for this question can be found on the data presented by the tool. The tool will provide reliable information in form of data after the tested application is running. Furthermore, the data presented representing the behavior of tested application can be used as reference to improve the performance of the application. This tool has elaborate interface. The home interface shows the setting for each parameter. Meanwhile, the result is presented in form of graphic.
- The result is presented in readable form.
- Easy operational.
- Complicated setting is required.
- Consuming great amount of RAM.
- The processing takes long time.
How to Use
After the application is installed in the device, the first thing that needs to be performed is setting some parameters on the application. The next step is running the tested application on the device. With the tool running on the background, the tested application will read it as the system instead of the device system.
From this testing, the tool will show some indicators representing the behavior of tested application. Changing the parameters of the tool allows a developer to simulate different Android devices. The tested application might behave differently according to the parameter set on the Test DPC. The final step is evaluating the behavior of the tested application based on the data presented by the tool.
- Support Android P.
