Automation Planning with MTM and CodedUI

Like project planning or test planning, automation planning is important to ensure that teams are not jumping into automation scripting without considering the relevant factors. These factors are critical for providing accurate estimates, deciding the right framework, choosing the right approach, enabling long-term automation maintenance and achieving early return on investment (ROI).

Test Automation Using Visual Studio 2010 Coded UI

You can use Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate or Visual Studio 2010 Premium to create automated tests of the user interface (UI) known as coded UI tests. These tests provide functional testing of the UI and validation of UI controls. Automated UI tests enable you to test that the UI is functioning correctly after code changes. Coded UI tests are quicker to run than manual tests, meaning that you can run them more frequently.

This article provides test automation guidance that helps you leverage the coded UI features of Visual Studio 2010 to foster a continuous, consistent and standard automation approach. Such an approach allows you to build, deploy and test, taking advantage of Visual Studio Lab Management features, which let automation testers reap the benefits of integrating with the build process for automatic build deployment, executing on VMs and reporting test automation results as part of Microsoft Test Manager (MTM).

BDD testing Frameworks

Behavior Driven Development, means using natural language instructions to set your test cases and development. This kind of language called Gherkin.
This method was created to save time on learning Test Cases methodologies, combined with Automation mechanism, this can be a save-time tool.

This method used most within Agile development methodologies and Test Driven Development as well.

Episode 4: XStudio - In conversation with Eric Gavaldo

XStudio is a complete and enhanced graphical test management solution facilitating a feature rich suite of options to help you manage the complete life-cycle of your products, including but not limited to users, requirements, specifications, documents, projects, test reports and test campaigns and integrated bug-tracking options. XStudio was designed as a test engine that later evolved into a test management solution to handle the complete project lifecycle from start to finish. The GUI harnesses five different modules to handle the data of the project : product module, requirements module, test module, test campaign module and bug tracking module. The uniqueness of XStudio lies in its prioritization of each individual element of the traceability matrix.

How to Scope Scenarios with JBehave and Guice

Neither one of these options is great for use with JBehave.  Instance scope is a problem because JBehave then creates a new Step class for every step in a scenario, making it impossible to share state between steps without using static (global) state.  Singleton scope is a different side of the same problem: state ends up shared among all scenarios.  In either case, to make things work you must remember to clean up the global state after each scenario.

Episode 3: Practitest - In conversation with Joel Montvelisky

Practitest originated out of the market requirements for a solution that could not only cover the whole spectrum of requirements, testing issues and integrations, but on the other hand could be a balanced solution between all the functionality and customizability that is provided only with enterprise solutions.
Practitest is a simplified approach to testing, that is easy to work with, and at the same time wouldn't compromise on the functionality.
The theme of Practitest is 'Information Management'. It is focused on helping teams with distributive development & is extensively used in financial and gaming domains.

The True Cost of Open Source Test Management

Organizations with software development needs have increasingly become enticed by the potential benefits of open source tools.
For some, the ability to reduce their operating expenses by eliminating the costs commonly associated with licensing proprietary software holds significant value.
Other businesses view open source assets as an opportunity to customize their resources to meet the specific needs of their internal teams.
The availability of open source tools has spread into the realm of test management, with several such options cropping up in recent years.

4. Standard and easy to comprehend reporting of test execution result

In developing TenKod EZ TestApp, we picked the right technologies when coding and executing our test automation this is now a very easy part to achieve and more or less comes as a reward to the choice we've already made. We based our test automation implementation on JUnit test automation framework which already takes care of producing fine grained reports for each and every executable test we have implemented. The fine grained report contains stack traces and user readable messages which are necessary to understand, in case of a test failure, what exactly has gone wrong and where in our test implementation.

3. Easy integration in mobile application development lifecycle (CI)

When exiting the test implementation phase, a test automation engineer is faced with a new challenge of achieving end-to-end test automation -- the test execution phase. During this phase, the typical requirements are to execute the automated tests as often as possible in an automated manner and bring it as close as possible to the development lifecycle of the application; TenKod EZ TestApp is able to execute automation testing on each and every change submitted in the codebase of the application under development and thus enriching its Continuous Integration (CI).

2. Easy and reliable execution of test cases

Although this kind of configuration can be done without source code modification, test parameterization techniques are available out-of-the-box with the TenKod EZ TestApp. This makes your tests configurable from the outside without any source code modifications, which certainly improves their maintainability and reduces lots of efforts on your side.

Mobile Testing Applications - Comparison

Mobile application testing is a process by which application software developed for hand held mobile devices is tested for its functionality, usability and consistency. Mobile applications either come pre-installed or can be installed from mobile software distribution platforms.
Mobile application testing can be categorized as:

  • Automated testing
  • Manual/Functional testing

Mobile devices have witnessed a phenomenal growth in the past few years. A study conducted by the Yankee Group predicts the generation of $4.2 billion in revenue by 2013 through 7 billion U.S. smartphone app download

Top 10 Risks to Using a Test Suite Approach

By no means should QA management and their teams avoid test suites - including automated iterations - altogether. These resources can be extremely useful for software testers and help them dig up a variety of issues. However, no single asset should be given too much focus, as they will each display some strengths and weaknesses. Quality development practices should include a comprehensive arsenal of testing tools to aid the efforts of QA professionals.
Explore the top 10 risks to keep in mind when taking a test suite approach to QA.

Avoid Common Testing Metric Pitfalls

Some QA leaders have found that their collected data doesn't always effectively address the questions they have. This may occur for a variety of reasons, but a likely culprit is a lack of context. Testing metrics should not be considered in a vacuum. To get the best results from these assets, QA management must consider numerous measurements and the implications they offer as an entire unit.

Smart Testers List of Testing Tools - Part 2

This is the second part of Amit's tools he was experiencing during his work. This great list shows tools that can help any tester to succeed in his/hers quest.
Good tester is the one that know, not only to activate the testing machine or application, also has strong ability to know and learn how to use wide range of tools that will help him/her to analyze the SUT and summarize in the correct manner.
After going through the tools in this list, QA doesn't seem so simple any more.

Thank you Amit for great information.
