Component Testing with Intelligent Test Artifacts
By Michael Silverstein
Summary: This article presents a set of design patterns commonly encountered when creating automated test frameworks and application domain specific test cases, and introduces the notion of test artifacts as a test component architectural model for implementing those patterns.
This article begins by presenting several patterns for automated component test framework design, some familiar and some not, with implementation strategies. It then shifts focus from test framework design to test case design and briefly applies the solutions discussed earlier as a basis for test case implementation.
