Not necessarily, see my problem lies in the fact that our web
application is in demand my mobile users of the network (and app),
however we have a strict policy that we don't want to support it unless
it can be tested on mobile browsers, so that the
compatibility/speed/usability tests that are a current part of our test
suite can be applied to browsers of common mobile devices (ie Palm Treo.
RIM Blackberry, Any WindowsCE embedded device). We can only add
legitimate support for these products after using an existing test
harness for automated testing. Thanks for your reply, look forward to
your comments / suggestions.

Hi Mike, WebTest can be used to test WML and other XML type content
applicable to mobile devices.  There is no special support for
talking to mobile device emulators at this stage.
Do you have a specific requirement?

Cheers, Paul.
