Electric Cloud optimises software production for Android device manufacturers
August 12, 2010 // Phil Ling
New enhancements to ElectricCommander and ElectricAccelerator improve the software build-test-deploy process for teams developing Android devices
The company also announced improvements to ElectricAccelerator designed to support fast Android software builds. These enhancements automate and accelerate software production processes for both pure-Android and cross-platform device development. In order to stay competitive and leverage the features of the latest technology, device manufacturers must be able to quickly integrate the latest Android releases into their production workflow. Because many manufacturers support more than one device platform and multiple build and test environments, the software production process becomes quite complex.
Tools for automating and streamlining development processes will be essential to sustain the growth of Android devices, said Martin Van Ryswyk, Vice President of Engineering for Electric Cloud. Manufacturers looking to harness the speed of open-source innovation and get their products to a demanding enterprise market with a high degree of quality need effective tools to integrate, accelerate and automate their development processes.
Electric Cloud's ElectricCommander and ElectricAccelerator solutions are optimised for Android development environments, improving manufacturers' ability to deliver devices on time and with high software quality. ElectricCommander speeds the development cycle by coordinating the entire software production process and supporting multiple operating systems, devices, and versions with a single interface. The new ElectricCommander plugins are tailored specifically to handle the complexity of Android device software development. One of these plugins enables direct interaction with physical test devices using the Android Data Bridge (ADB) protocol and Fastboot technology. This allows ElectricCommander to flash images, push applications, and execute code directly on an Android device enabling fast, frequent testing while minimizing manual intervention. All news
