Chapter 4. Test
Always delete any applications installed using the Remote Test Lab service before ending your remote service. This is to prevent sensitive information from being exposed to the next user.
This feature lets you install applications on the remote device. The Install Application menu can be found in the context menu of the RTL Client screen or Bezel area.
The RTL Client provides three ways to install applications.
- Install Application menu (through the Application Manager)
- Application Manager
- Drag and drop application files from the local system to the RTL Client
Selecting the application file to install after running the Install Application menu will send the selected file to the remote device and start the installation process.
- The Android application file type is apk.
- The Tizen application file type is tpk and wgt.
- The application installation time depends on the user's network environment and size of the application file.
This feature is used to test the remote device by repeating specific events. The Auto-Repeat menu can be found in the context menu of the RTL Client screen or Bezel area.
Figure 14 Auto-Repeat menu
Auto-Repeat is performed in the two following steps:
- Save event order
- Conducting automatic, repetitive testing
First, you must click the Record button to record the events to automatically repeat. Once the Record button is clicked, all events that control the RTL Client are recorded.
When recording events for repeated testing, it is recommended that you begin and finish recording with the same screen on the RTL Client.
If the events have been recorded successfully, designate the number of repetitions you wish to test, then click the Play button to repeat the recorded events for the designated number of repetitions.
Recorded events can be saved in XML to load and use again later.
This feature is used to check the logs on the remote device. The Log menu can be found in the context menu of the RTL Client screen or Bezel area.
Figure 15 Logs
When you wish to filter certain log messages, click the Add button and apply filters that correspond to the log message you wish to view.
Log messages can easily be copied or saved by pressing Ctrl + C or clicking the Save button.
Remote Debug Bridge
This feature allows IDE on the user PC to recognize the remote device as if it's an actual device which is connected to the user PC. The Remote Debugging menu can be found in the context menu of the RTL Client screen or Bezel area.
Selecting this menu provides adb or sdb command including local port number, and the remote device will be recognized on IDE after using the command at command prompt or terminal.

Figure 17 Remote Device on Tizen IDE
The remote device recognized by the Remote Debug Bridge feature works the same as the actual device. To install and run applications through Tizen IDE in particular, it needs to install Tizen Extension SDK for Certificate, and create the Device Profile and Security Profile.
The Remote Debug Bridge feature supports both Android(Jelly bean or higher) and Tizen platform.
