Automation testing is a software testing method to run a set of test cases without executing them manually. After executing several sets, we can compare actual test results with expected results. In the automation method, scripted data is executed by testing tools that examine the behavior of software, report outcomes, and compare the results. Different types of test automation can easily execute thousands of different complex test cases during every test run providing coverage that is impossible with manual tests.

Types of Automation Tests

There are different types of automation tests through which you will typically be running more than one set of tests:-

• Layering test types

• Input-output test

• UI regression test

• Unit test

• Integration test

• Code analysis

GraphQL is an abstraction layer that grants you to construct queries that approach multiple resources at the backend and accumulate that data well-adjusted into an individual consequential reply. The usage of GraphQL can attribute to lower traffic congestion and accurate and fast applications in the future. So, it becomes crucial to validate GraphQL APIs to ensure that  API consumers access their information efficiently. Automated testing of GraphQL helps in reducing test creation time and improves overall coverage of the back-end. 

 

Some GraphQL testing tools:

  • Karate
  • EasyGraphQL
  • ReadyAPI

It is critical during any ERP usage to schedule, coordinate and execute a stress test. Items within this test should include

Test automation helps cover speedy test cycles, including setup and relapse testing. In spite of the fact that test mechanization isn’t the main arrangement, there are numerous intense approaches to choose the correct system or instrument for your business forms. Some of them include:

 

  • The right automation tool selection.
  • Test cases covering whole application.
  • A seller who can immediately refresh with the most recent arrivals of testing.

It is critical during any ERP usage to schedule, coordinate and execute a stress test. Items within this test should include:

1. Planning and Co-ordination: Set time aside to plan and document to what extent your testing will be, what every particular client will do, kinds of exchanges and gear utilized, and your normal outcomes. Plan for inability to happen, along these lines you can be set up to overcome what may sensibly turn out badly later on.

Business Benefits of Test Automation In Terms of ROI

test automation benefits

Many organizations consider automation testing as a vital step in establishing a mature Q&A program. But, manual testing can never be ruled out completely.

Automation Testing Improves Business Results In Three Ways:

Shorter Time To Market, Increased Test Efficiency And Increased Test Effectiveness.

Testing efficiency is the average number of test cases you can run for an hour of tester time. High efficiency of testing reduces product development time and costs.

Testing effectiveness is rate at which testing reveals bugs before your application are released in the market. Increased effectiveness reduces the costs through a better product.

Application must be tested before release and reducing your time to market for benefits. Manual testing replacing with automated testing can cut time from elapsed testing time.

ROI Formula:

The ROI for test automation can move into positive zone depending upon the number of regression cycles required for the lifetime of the application.

ROI for test automation can be simply calculated by the below formula:

Return of Investment(ROI) = (Manual testing cost — Automation cost)/Automation cost

Why We Need Automation Testing Framework?

August 17 2018, 10:53am

Posted by Claire Mackerras

why we need test automation 

The simplistic answer for this is to get maximum efficiency and to utilize the resources in a complete way. Let us first discuss why we automate our software product.

Automation Testing is necessary to save the rework in regression testing and for saving the time to fill multiple page lengthy forms.

By automating our products we can be assure of its already fixed functionality and also merge modules to skip the execution time of a process.

While planning for automation of a software product, its framework design is as necessary as while building a shopping mall its blue print is necessary.

Framework design needs to collect and specify all the requirements that are mandatory for automating a software product. The requirements should be analyzed and freeze on the basis of their feasibility.

There may be possibility that some of the requirement cannot be automated and no framework can be created for these requirements.

Helpful Ideas To Explore the Types of Requirements for Software Testing

April 27 2018, 10:17am

Software Testing Service Provider India
Testers need to make sure that they are taking care of all types of requirements. By all types of requirements, it means direct (explicit), indirect (implicit), and latent (extra) requirements.
 
Let throw some light on the types of requirements and their details:
 
1. The explicit requirements noted down(Direct requirements): This kind of requirement is noted down directly from the client discussion and converted into the document of understanding. These are generally shared with the team working on the project, and the designs, wireframes and scenarios are made based on the provided details.
 
2. The implicit requirements(Indirect but obvious requirements): This kind of requirement is generally not provided in the documents, but are obvious requirements expected by the client. These requirements can be related to the security of the application, performance of the application, usability of the application, and availability of the application. Say for instance, there is data to be entered for a firm using the fields ‘Employee Name’, ‘Employee ID’, etc.
