If you're interested in Java ME, and the Java Verified testing and validation program in particular, then check out the Docs, FAQs and Other Info on the Java Verified site too.
In this document we look at how the testing of mobile applications helps to achieve quality.
We explore a typical way that an app is developed, look at the testing stages involved, answer some of the frequent questions concerning testing, and provide a definition of the common testing terms.
The document has been compiled by AQuA, with additional input provided by the AQuA-approved Test Houses at April 2013.
We’ll be revising it continually, so if you have any input for the next version, please do let us know. Thank you.
We hope you find it useful.

This is the latest version (1.4) of the AQuA Testing Criteria for Android applications against which Android apps needs to be tested to be eligable for inclusion of their details within the Quality App Directory. Please see full details of the Directory by going to the site at www.qualityappdirectory.org
A list of the tests included within the Android Testing Criteria (v1.4 - Feb 2013).
It shows tests for 'simple' and 'complex apps, and also highlights whether the tests are 'critical' or 'warning-level' tests.
Here's a list of the top 10 tests apps usually fail when tested against the AQuA Testing Criteria (for Android or Java).
This is the latest version - 2.2 - February 2013 of the Best Practice Guidelines for Developing Quality Mobile Applications, irrespective of the platform for which they are being developed.
These guidelines need to be updated regularly, as the industry changes. Please read them, use them and let us know what you think via the blog. We'll then update them and re-issue them on a continual basis.
FAQs relating to App Quality Alliance including the Testing Criteria, the association's funding and members, and the Quality App Directory.

This version (2.3) replaces all previous versions of the Java Unified Testing Criteria.
The Unified Testing Criteria UTC contains a common set of tests against which apps must be tested before they can be considered to be eligible for the Java Verified endorsement.
You should not consider distributing your applications if they don't meet this requirement as this set of tests contained within the document will be used by your chosen test house to test your app.
Please download it, read it, do your QA testing against it before submitting your apps via the Submission Portal.
THIS IS AN OLD DOCUMENT.
We've introduced a set of Unified Testing Criteria to help improve the quality of Android applications. It compliments our existing criteria for Java ME apps that has been used sucessfully since 2004.
