The Cost Of Automated Testing Can Be Reduced By Building Robust Tests
Matryxsoft Tech team studies and understands the application under test to identify the best tool which suits the application by doing a POC. POC helps us to
Identify the Platforms and Technologies used.
Analyze the Database and the back-end test data
Determine the controls been used
Check the best tool that support to automate all tests
Finalize the test automation tool
Once the Tool is identified, a forecast on the application study will be done on how and where the development of the software application is proceeding.
We study on the progress of the technologies to be used in future and check on the support for the same from the identified automation tool.
Perform an end to end test scenario to see how the controls are been developed and recognized by the automation tool.
HOW TO INCREASE THE ROBUSTNESS OF THE TESTS
Every application does have custom controls and we make sure to have a permanent solution or a good workaround for the custom classes which acts similar to standard control/classes.
Object Repository will be created and every object will be followed with the standard naming convention and make sure that right attribute is used to identify objects uniquely which may not affect the identification of the same in future development of the application.
Every function written would be parameterized and make sure it is reusable.
Inbuilt utility libraries which are built by Matryxsoft will be an added advantage to the project.
Every Test will retrieve the inputs from a database to make sure change in data will not affect the developed scripts/functions
Regression/Smoke/Integration suite Tests will be grouped to make sure the tests are executed according to the release.
Make sure command line execution will be performed on the suites/tests which helps for CI execution
HOW TO INCREASE THE PRODUCTIVITY BY TEST MANAGEMENT
Automated Project for every build will be versioned using the version control tool.
Every project will be executed using Continuous Integration tool
Every automated project will be bonded to a defect tracking tool
Reports will be generated in an format (e.g. html/xml/pdf) with a high level and a low level reporting structure.
Parallel execution will be supported to increase the performance and reduce the time of testing.
