Are you confronted with the issue of supporting an application on various platforms? Is your test matrix increasing with each release to accommodate various versions of your platform? Teams that test multiplatform products face the choice of porting tests over for each supported platform or trying to create tests that can be shared across platforms. This paper describes our strategy and experience for platform agnostic test development across the last two releases of the Microsoft Lync product. Our proposal consists of a methodology and design for producing test content that is adaptable to application variations, allowing tests to be created once and run for multiple platforms.
