  1. The Challenge
    of “Good Enough” Software
    :

    • This article by James Bach is a slightly updated version of the the
      original that was published in American Programmer magazine in 1995. The
      author’s ideas are rooted in his experiences at Apple Computer in the late 80’s,
      and Borland in the early nineties. This article was treated as a counter-culture
      rant in 1995. But today, the agile development movement, which exemplifies these
      ideas, is well established. (11 pages)

of test scenarios and delivers a measurable reduction in test asset maintenance.

Effective testing throughout the whole Siebel lifecycle finds more defects,
thus lowering the risk and reducing the cost of the project.

BugStomper Software Screenshot program that was designed specifically for Software
Testers, or anyone else involved in the Software Quality Assurance process.
Software Testers usually take many screenshots as part of their testing process.
Screenshots are frequently used show reproduction steps for a failed test or a
bug found, and often it is very helpful to highlight the areas of the screenshot
that you want to recieve the most focus; such as an incorrect value, or a design
error. BugShot was designed to streamline this process with it’s ability to
capture, save, edit, comment, and print screenshots; all in a matter of seconds.

A Test Automation Framework is
a set of assumptions, concepts and practices that provide support for automated
software testing.
Bellow is a List of the 4 most solid Automation
Framework concept-types (could be potentially mixed in actual
implementation)

1)
Test Script Modularity Framework
  • The test script modularity framework requires the
    creation of small, independent scripts that represent modules, sections, and
    functions of the application-under-test. These small scripts are then used in a
    hierarchical fashion to construct larger tests, realizing a particular test
    case.
  • Of all the frameworks I’ll review, this one should
    be the simplest to grasp and master. It’s a well-known programming strategy to
    build an abstraction layer in front of a component to hide the component from
    the rest of the application. This insulates the application from modifications
    in the component and provides modularity in the application design. The test
    script modularity framework applies this principle of abstraction or
    encapsulation in order to improve the maintainability and scalability of
    automated test suites.
2)
Data-driven testing
  • is a framework where test input and output values
    are read from data files (datapools, ODBC sources, csv files, Excel files, DAO
    objects, ADO objects, and such) and are loaded into variables in captured or
    manually coded scripts. In this framework, variables are used for both input
    values and output verification values. Navigation through the program, reading
    of the data files, and logging of test status and information are all coded in
    the test script.
  • This is similar to table-driven testing in that the
    test case is contained in the data file and not in the script; the script is
    just a “driver,” or delivery mechanism, for the data. Unlike in table-driven
    testing, though, the navigation data isn’t contained in the table structure. In
    data-driven testing, only test data is contained in the data files.
3)
Keyword-driven testing
  • is a Software testing technique that separates much
    of the programming work from the actual test steps so that the test steps can be
    developed earlier and can often be maintained with only minor updates, even when
    the application or testing needs change significantly.
  • The Keyword-Driven or Table-Driven Testing Framework
    Keyword-driven testing and table-driven testing are interchangeable terms that
    refer to an application-independent automation framework. This framework
    requires the development of data tables and keywords, independent of the test
    automation tool used to execute them and the test script code that “drives” the
    application-under-test and the data. Keyword-driven tests look very similar to
    manual test cases. In a keyword-driven test, the functionality of the
    application-under-test is documented in a table as well as in step-by-step
    instructions for each test.
  • If we were to map out the actions we perform with
    the mouse when we test our Windows Calculator functions by hand, we could create
    the following table. The “Window” column contains the name of the application
    window where we’re performing the mouse action (in this case, they all happen to
    be in the Calculator window). The “Control” column names the type of control the
    mouse is clicking. The “Action” column lists the action taken with the mouse (or
    by the tester). And the “Arguments” column names a specific control (1, 2, 3, 5,
    +, -, and so on).
4)
Model-based testing
  • is software testing in which test cases are derived
    in whole or in part from a model that describes some (usually functional)
    aspects of the system under test (SUT).
  • The model is usually an abstract, partial
    presentation of the system under test’s desired behavior. The test cases derived
    from this model are functional tests on the same level of abstraction as the
    model. These test cases are collectively known as the abstract test suite. The
    abstract test suite cannot be directly executed against the system under test
    because it is on the wrong level of abstraction. Therefore an executable test
    suite must be derived from the abstract test suite that can communicate with the
    system under test. This is done by mapping the abstract test cases to concrete
    test cases suitable for execution. In the case of online testing (see below),
    the abstract test suite exists only as a concept but not as an explicit
    artifact.
  • There are many different ways to “derive” tests from
    a model. Because testing is usually experimental and based on heuristics, there
    is no one best way to do this. It is common to consolidate all test derivation
    related design decisions into a package that is often known as “test
    requirements”, “test purpose” or even “use case”. This package can contain e.g.
    information about the part of the model that should be the focus for testing, or
    about the conditions where it is correct to stop testing (test stopping
    criteria).
    An example (bellow) of a
    model-based testing workflow (offline test case generation). IXIT refers to
    “implementation extra information” and denotes here the total package of
    information that is needed when the abstract test suite is converted into an
    executable one. Typically it includes information about test harness, data
    mappings and SUT configuration.
