I need to automate the process where each time I need to register a user with a different email and verify them. Is there any such email service that allows testers to automate the process of getting a token / URL from a temporary mail address?

We have a very complex software product that is installed and runs on a Computer or Server.  The Software is managed by a Management Console in the Cloud. 

For years all of our End to End testing was manual.  But this was very resource intensive and time comsuming.  So a couple of years ago we moved to a more agule development approach and built a test automation system to run these End to End tests.  However, we quickly found limitations for example we couldn't have automated tests check what is being displayed in the UI running on the Computer, or check what is being displayed in the Management Console in the Cloud.  So we can never fully replicate in automation what the manual tests were doing.

The result is that we still run, some if not all, of the automated tests manually so check the parts that the automation can't.  So it hasn't really saved us any time or effort.  Also the reliability of the automated tests is an issue due to trhe complexity of the software and it having so many moving parts.  We often run into timing related issues.

Is it possible that some software does not make a suitable candidate for End to End test automation?  If so, what sort of approach should be taken in that situation?  I've been ready about test automation a lot and looked at a number of different tools and systems, but both the tools and the theory all seem to be based around website testing, rather than testing Desktop software.

Many thanks in advance for any thoughts and suggestions. 

I am new to testing and my mentor at the company is asking me to get my base strong with regards to manual testing. I know java and made few demo projects with selenium - browser automation and rest assured - API testing . They are expecting me to have better test cases coverage and base needs to be strong . So , anybody knows few blogs/resources from which I can get my foundation strong?

 

 

Just wanted to know if anyone is working on a Enterprise system[healthcare or so} and slowly moving into Cloud. IF so, what is the testing strategy adopted for testing the Enterprise system currently and  how are they planning to do the testing as we move into Cloud

Hi all, I wanted to ask if anyone had come across any automation tools that are used outside of the general web / app based ones. eg automating the requirment analysis, test plan creation, test script creation etc

Not sure if this is something thats out there.

 

Thanks

I want to know the best approaches (Automated UAT, Regression testing, Retesting, etc.) to reduce production defects in software development.

I'm interested to find out if its possible to automate barcode scanning using a mobile phone. Has anyone successfully done this?

I have 5 testNg methods. It will take around 2 to 3 hours to complete the 5 test methods. So I want to execute each test methods in different chrome instance so that time will be reduced. Am executing the test methods using java main class by passing the series file which contains the class name.
