test automation Questions

It seems that a popular approach to QA automation is a quick start to cover a most critical area with automated tests ASAP and then proceed automating other areas of testing. This second phase requires more dedicated tool(s). So, what features are most important for such a tool so that it could be useful for your web application?

  • Visual baseline: to compare with results of new test runs
  • Smart CSS selectors: to find and interact with CSS elements on a web page
  • Ignore from comparison: selecting areas on a page which should not be checked for differences
  • Clone, parameterize and invoke tests: reuse existing tests for quick creation of new ones, with the same or new parameters (such as start URL, text entries, login credentials etc)
  • CI-friendly: test execution via Jenkins jobs or with the help of any other popular CI tool
  • Codeless/code-based
  • Your own options?

Hi guys,

am new to the Specflow automation tool. Is there a user friendly gui  extension or bolt on available in Visual Studio for aiding the automation of test cases?

 

thanks

My preference would be tools that have record and playback functionality.  There are lots of automated tools for Windows, but only a few for CentOS Linux.

Each QA automation team has its own specific priorities when choosing a test automation tool to facilitate the UI regression testing process. But what approach is more popular: a lightweight solution which is simple and quick grasp (but will not cover all your regression testing scope) or a full-scale test automation framework which can do much more but will require lots of time to create and maintain the test coverage? What would you/your team/your manager(s) choose and why?

Hi,

I am a test automation specialist and test manager and I am seaching for ideas in which way I have to change my mindset, my knowledge and tool expierience when beeing part of a development team or company for developping digital services and products?

There are many tools available in the market for automation testing.But which is the best tool to start with who does not have experience in Automation testing but has worked on manual testing.

As I know, here's the list of some automation testing tools that i think they are the best at this moment:

1. Testcomplete https://smartbear.com (It's a paid automation tool. It's an little tricky to learn and use but quite similar to Selenium)

2. Katalon Studio: https://www.katalon.com (It's a free automation tool - enhances Selenium and Appium with a complete test automation framework that helps you start testing in no time)

3. Tosca Testsuit: www.tricentis.com (There are many more features that are useful for automation but there can really be a need for some coding effort to integrate with your application)

And anything else?
