Tools like Selenium make writing automated browser tests dead easy. Many teams never look further than this, and are satisfied with just replacing their laborious manual testing efforts with reliable Selenium scripts. They’ve missed a big opportunity.
HP Quick Test Professional is a test automation tool, also known as QTP. It is used to automate functional, regression and smoke test cases. It is a very popular software testing tool and works on MS windows O/S, supports development technologies like Active X, Delphi, Java, .Net, Oracle, People Soft, Web services etc. This article presents some best practices while doing automation using QTP.
This presentation shows how to easily go from user stories to automated integration tests that themselves read like user stories. You can accomplish this by using custom domain-specific languages (DSL).
Learn how to perform functional testing on JSF applications with Arquillian and Selenium. In modern development environments, it’s a must to include testing of Web applications as a standard part of the development lifecycle. Such tests can also be used as acceptance criteria in enterprise projects. Although full automation is possible, it is considered to be very expensive. As a result, in projects where testing is included as part of the project plan, it is also often the first requirement cut when the project schedule begins to slip.
Daniel Wagner-Hall set up and maintains the continuous integration server for the Selenium project; every check in runs several hundred tests in 30+ browser/version/OS combinations, totaling 3.5 days of tests every day!
How do you perform software testing in a continuous deployment environment where you have more than 10 releases a day? How can you be confident that the code running in production is still reliable? In this blog post, Andy Hume explains the software quality process the Guardian uses for continuous deployment mode.
Marcus Martina explains in this blog post how to integrate FitNesse tests into the Jenkins continuous integration system. FitNesse is an open source testing framework that aims to implement integration testing in a collaborative way. It is easy to integrate FitNesse tests automatically with Maven and Jenkins. The post provides the code necessary to do this integration. It also identifies the different Maven plugins that are necessary to achieve this goal and recommends to trigger the execution of the integration tests in an individual build step.
This video presents the lessons that a team has learned from having a big code base of Selenium tests for acceptance testing. It covers different ways they have developed to track their tests across different projects and how this has helped them to identify flaky tests.
SpecFlow is an acceptance test driven development and behavior driven development for .NET. One of them the biggest challenge in using SpecFlow is to improve the efficiency of the automated testing process. Typical questions are about organizing feature files, keeping the specification language consistent, refactoring feature files, automation code maintainability, better feedback from failing tests, test execution time or handling stability issues.
