Our team here at Nokia needed an automated way to run and fetch the results from the qunit jquery mobile test pages (https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/tree/master/tests). Selenium would have naturally been a great tool to automate this however given our added layer of complexity and evolving infrastructure with physical devices we have been testing a simpler approach with minimal infrastructure support needed.

In this approach, we have modified the jquery.testHelper.js script to send the content of the page back to a server at the end of execution. The results are parsed by the server and stored there as physical files.

Each test pages can now be loaded one after another and the results are processed and stored on the server no matter the device or browser in use. Any client can then request the results back by calling the appropriate url.
We thought of sharing this back to the community if it can be useful to anyone else.

# Create the session directory by accessing
         http://localhost/qunit_remote/index.php?action=init&session=mysessionname

# Then you can start running the tests by accessing the corresponding directories
# When you edit 'file/jquery_mobile/tests/jquery.testHelper.js' make sure you use the same
# 'mysessionname' as for the 'init' and 'end' steps.

         http://localhost/qunit_remote/file/jquery-mobile/tests/unit/event
         ...

# Finally to retrieve results simply run from any browser/machine
         http://localhost/qunit_remote/index.php?action=end&session=mysessionname
# Instead of getting a zip you can just get the final master xml will all the results by using
         http://localhost/qunit_remote/index.php?action=end&session=mysessionname&output=raw
