quality assurance Questions

If a Scrum "increment" is to be "done" by the end of the "sprint", where "done" means usable/releaseable, I assume testing has to be part of the sprint. Since sprints are not supposed to last more than a month, depending on the scope of the sprint goals, testing is either ongoing or occurs just before the end of the sprint. It seems on-going has to be the answer, but regressive testing of the new increment with previous incrments can grow into an increasing work item.

Does anyone with experience in this have thoughts to share so I can understand better how this is done?

So, I'm writing automation tests for a huge web platform. We have page objects folder with files for each web page which contain a great amount of selectors used in tests. Also, tests pertaining to one of the component/functionality are all grouped in one file. 


The main question is whether the functions used by multiple tests (and some will have assertions in them) should be written:

1. Functions w/o assertions in page object and those w/ assertions in helper file for that component/functionality

2. All functions in helper file

3. Functions w/o assertions in page object and write the rest of the commands with assertions in the specific tests even though they may repeat and make the file with tests huge.

Testing is done in javasctipt(more recent: typescript), selenium webdriver, protractor, jasmine.

I really hope someone can solve this conundrum since nobody in my office has enough experience to help me. Thank you!

p.s. Should we group tests in one file? or write wvery test in a separate one?  


It's a survey on usual test automation tools ( open-source vs commercial) and what people think (and want from) about them.

I was just wondering if anyone decided to make the switch and, if yes, how did that go? 

Any feedback?

Does anyone here have any experience or knowledge of performing acceptance testing on automated conveyor systems utilised for the sortation of items.

This is a mixture of software and interfaces with moving machinery and integrating into data systems 

For example conveyor or materials handling conveyors used in the managment and distribution of luggage around a large airport 

I am looking to understand how you defined the scope of test and the framework adopted with the possibility of benchmarking the activities you have performed.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
