Throw a line of code into many codebases and it is sure to hit one or more testing frameworks. There is no shortage of frameworks for testing, each with their particular spin and set of conventions, but that glut is not always matched by a clear vision of how to structure and use tests cases. A testing framework is a vehicle, but you still need to know how to drive.
Test automation is a must for most large and medium-sized software businesses. However, just automation, even implemented in a project according to all the rules, may not be enough. The company will face several new challenges that slow down the team’s work and negatively affect the release speed. It doesn’t sound very optimistic, does it?
We are in that era of technology when there are so many different software testing tools available in the market that it can be difficult to narrow down your options. Let’s discuss one of these tools: Kualitee.
Software quality assurance is more dependent on test data than we all would like. You can’t escape it anymore: you need to do something with test data management. Why? Because without proper test data management you lose valuable time that is already scarce.
If test automation is a key practice of modern software testing, it will be a big mistake to automate 100% of your test cases. This article provides some tips on how to select the test cases that can be automated if you want to achieve the maximum benefits of your software testing efforts.
Software testers are expected to come up with a lot of test artifacts during the process of software testing. The traditional test artifacts are time-intensive, bulky and their structure do not support the agile approach of software development. When working in an agile environment, software testers work in highly compressed test execution cycles.
It can be intimidating for inexperienced software development teams embarking on their test automation journey for an existing code base. There is so much to test, and so many ways to test. You can often see teams stuck with debating on where to start software testing and what tools to use and best practices:
