We at BIZSENSE know how to avoid unproductive manual routines and cut development time. Applying test automation we are able to run more tests in a shorter period of time and provide result-driven consulting. We combine test automation expertise and technology proficiency to increase productivity, as well as eliminate transition efforts and associated risks.
Test automation is the use of special software to control the execution of tests and the comparison of actual outcomes with predicted outcomes. Test automation can automate some repetitive but necessary tasks in a formalized testing process already in place, or add additional testing that would be difficult to perform manually.
Some software testing tasks, such as extensive low-level interface regression testing, can be laborious and time consuming to do manually. In addition, a manual approach might not always be effective in finding certain classes of defects. Test automation offers a possibility to perform these types of testing effectively. Once automated tests have been developed, they can be run quickly and repeatedly. Many times, this can be a cost-effective method for regression testing of software products that have a long maintenance life. Even minor patches over the lifetime of the application can cause features to break which were working at an earlier point in time.
There are two general approaches to test automation:
Code-driven testing : The public (usually) interfaces to classes, modules or libraries are tested with a variety of input arguments to validate that the results that are returned are correct.
Graphical user interface testing : A testing framework generates user interface events such as keystrokes and mouse clicks, and observes the changes that result in the user interface, to validate that the observable behavior of the program is correct.
How we do?
Automation is done by using a supportive computer language like java and an automated software application. There are a lot of tools which we used to write automation scripts. Lets identify the process which we used to automate the testing:
- Identifying areas within a software for automation.
- Selection of appropriate tool for Test automation.
- Writing Test scripts.
- Development of Test suits.
- Execution of scripts.
- Create result reports.
- Identify any potential bug or performance issue.
