Test automation is an essential practice to manage quality in large software development projects. This article discusses the reasons why incorporating test tools during test design is an absolute necessity for ensuring high-quality software products and successful project outcomes.
BugBug is a cloud-based, low-code test automation tool that is an ideal choice for testers, QA specialists, developers, and product managers in Agile teams to enable E2E testing.
Test management is defined by Wikipedia a part of the software testing process that includes the planning of tests and test cases, their execution and the storage and analysis of the tests results. This is achieved also by the integration with requirements management tools, functional software testing tools like Selenium or Cucumber (with the Gerkhin language), continuous integration tools like Jenkins or TeamCity, bug tracking tools like Bugzilla or Mantis, project management tools like Trello, Redmine or JIRA.
Test cases and acceptance criteria are two important aspects of test management. In this article, Ovidiu Donciu discusses the similarities and differences between test cases and acceptance criteria and suggests that we could merge them.
As a software developer, you understand that testing is an integral part of software development. However, software testing is not just about finding and fixing bugs; it is also about identifying and mitigating risks. Therefore, risk management is an essential part of any software testing process, and having a risk management plan in place is critical during the testing planning phase.
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?
