Transcript of "Tips for automating software testing"

  1. 1. Tips for Automating Software Testing http://www.universalexams.com/
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>In order to accomplish testing goals, the automation of testing software through tools such as Connect Wise, Open-nix and Advanced ETL Processor Enterprise is the best approach. </li></ul><ul><li>Testing is one of the most important functions in any software development lifecycle because obviously the presence of any bugs or defects will interrupt the functioning of the system. </li></ul><ul><li>This, in turn, could result in a domino effect that leads to further defects. </li></ul><ul><li>Hence, the importance of testing is widely accepted in all companies. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Importance of Software Testing Automation <ul><li>Manual testing is not a practical choice when you have multiple systems functioning at the same time. </li></ul><ul><li>The identification of defects becomes difficult in such situations. </li></ul><ul><li>Every time a new bug is corrected, another arises. Automation is extremely helpful in such situations and as such can have a positive impact on company profit and time management. </li></ul><ul><li>It simply makes testing more efficient and effective. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How to Buy Software Testing Automation Tools <ul><li>The value of the automation tool that you will use for testing is not as important as comparing the tool. </li></ul><ul><li>Compare the available tools. Choosing the cheapest one is not a good idea. Buying the most expensive might provide you quality, but may not suit your purpose. </li></ul><ul><li>So buy automation tools according to your own personal and organizational requirements. </li></ul>
  5. 5. How to Buy Software Testing Automation Tools (cont.) <ul><li>Additionally, before buying an automated software testing tool, make sure you test it. </li></ul><ul><li>Test it with your system to ensure compatibility. Most retailers will check the tool for compatibility, but that is not enough for your money’s worth. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask them to demonstrate the tool in your system. </li></ul><ul><li>You want to see how the tool performs and what its return on investment might be. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Software Testing Automation Tools: Best Practices <ul><li>Once you have selected your software testing automation tools, be sure to follow some of the best practices associated with their use. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, make sure your testers are trained to use the tools in the most efficient manner. </li></ul><ul><li>This is particularly relevant when it comes to the scripting and the re-scripting process, because after creating an automated script it needs be re-scripted as the script itself is unstable. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, chart your applications while applying automated testing tools to them. </li></ul><ul><li>Maintenance will be much easier if you record the process of maintenance up front. </li></ul><ul><li>This will also make repairs cost-effective and worthwhile. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Software Testing Automation Tools: Best Practices <ul><li>Automation is not appropriate for every process, so never try to automate everything that comes your way. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, while performing the testing program, never combine test automation with functional automated testing. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Both of these testing methods require different testing skills, even though both of them make use of similar automated testing tools. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If the automation tools will be used in an outsourcing capacity, begin by testing the tool’s return on investment in this scenario. </li></ul><ul><li>Additionally, while outsourcing you must ensure that the company is following you and not the other way around. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This way you are in control. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Never get tied to any particular company or firm, as this will limit your outsourcing ability. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Conclusion <ul><li>The bottom line is that automated software testing is getting adopted by more and more organizations every single year. </li></ul><ul><li>Companies that fail to make the switch risk falling behind their competitors in terms of efficiency, product quality, and organizational stability. </li></ul>
