Abstract: Testing of mobile applications during the occurrence of interrupts is termed as interrupt testing. Interrupts can occur either internally within the mobile or from other external factors or systems. Interruption in any smart phones may decrease the performance of mobile applications. In this paper, an automated interruption testing model is proposed to analyse the responsiveness of mobile applications during interrupts. This model monitors the applications installed in the mobile devices and evaluates the overall performance of mobile applications during interrupt using fuzzy logic. An enhanced MobiFuzzy evaluation system (MFES) is proposed that is used to dynamically analyse the test results and identify necessary information required for tuning the application. Fuzzy logic will help the developers or testers in tuning the application performance; by automatically categorising the impact level of performance parameters on the overall performance of the application.

Keywords: mobile application testing; interrupt testing; application tracker; performance testing.
