In one of my earlier blogs, I discussed how Macs were becoming the workstation of choice for the developers. In this blog, I want to look at how developers, who are working on browser based applications can leverage native virtualization solution like Veertu running on OS X/Mac to execute cross browser testing across different operating system versions. Take the example of unit testing your app on different versions of IE supported on different windows versions. While it’s kind of difficult to get multiple versions of windows to build test environments(unless you have MSDN account ), I came across this very interesting resource by Microsoft – https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/mac/. Microsoft has packaged IE versions + Windows version as VMs and made them available for testing purposes. If you are running Veertu on your Mac, you will start by downloading VMs in either Virtual box, Fusion or Parallels format. I downloaded Virtualbox VMs of IE8 on Win7, IE10 on Win7 and the new IE MDEdge on Win 10. After unzipping the files, I imported these VM images into Veertu. I was able to start the VMs in Veertu right away without any manual intervention.
