  • Publication number: 20110131450
    Abstract: Embodiments are described for using synchronized event types in testing an application configured to be executed on multiple types of networked devices. The method can include playing a macro containing recorded application events to be applied to the application for testing. The recorded application events can be stored in a macro queue during playback. Further, order independent events can be identified in the macro queue, which precede an order dependent event. This enables identified order independent events to be removed. In addition, an order dependent event in the macro queue can be removed after order independent events preceding the order dependent events are removed. Then the order dependent event from the macro queue can be played after the order dependent event has been removed from the macro queue.
