test scripting  Obsolescence When vendors sunset test automation scripting tools without providing a forward compatible path for replacement, companies are forced to pay for change with no benefit. Most enterprise business processes span both old and new applications, and cannot be effectively tested without changing tools. Companies need to create a future-proof strategy for assuring that these costs never have to be repeated.

Software Test Tools

Tools exist to support software testing at all stages of a project. Some vendors offer an integrated suite that will support testing and development throughout a project's life, from gathering requirements to supporting the live system. Some vendors concentrate on a single part of that life cycle. The software test tools knowledge base provides functional criteria you might expect from a testing tool, the infrastructure that supports the tool, and an idea of the market position of the vendor.

Desktop Management's Dirty Little Secret


ESD (electronic software distribution) promises to simplify software distribution and management, and eliminate ''sneakernet'' the costly, time-consuming manual process that some companies still use to do upgrades and installations. Unfortunately, the cure often has some of the same pitfalls as the problem, not to mention a few snags of its own.

Each task requires more costly and time-consuming script writing. There's also the headache of babysitting the ESD system in off-hours during bandwidth-gobbling actions such as migrating to a new operating Read More

Evolution to Revolution: The Test Automation Maturity Curve


The evolution of test automation towards data-driven and key/action word frameworks reflects the realization that the process becomes more efficient if there is less code to develop and maintain. Instead of taking twenty years to evolve towards efficiency, you can take a revolutionary leap with a code-free approach that makes it easier to implement, manage, and maintain automated tests.

In this approach, the keyword or action word is written in a scripting language and is specific to the application under test. In some cases, the script code is generated automatically from building blocks that are then enhanced with additional code to perform decision-making and other logic tasks. In the example above, add product and check product are the names of scripts that contain the Read More

A Guide to Software Test Tools


Testing a system well is harder than building it. In the face of new risks introduced by the ever-increasing complexity of software and hardware, test tools may be your only practical way to be confident that you've got just what you paid for. From gathering the initial requirements to supporting the system after it has been deployed, test tools are available to support all phases of a project. This article looks at the ways that test tools can be used to design, code, and (of course) test a system.

All use detailed scripts to describe tests and a set of expected results—and while the construction of these scripts may be hidden from the tester, they nevertheless introduce software engineering complexities. Trying to simulate manual tests—in particular working with point-and-click interfaces—introduces further complications. Most tools incorporate functionality that helps to deal with this – from providing a Read More
