test methodologies Questions

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?

Can anyone recommend SQA Forum to join or SQA user group in Boston area?  Office is in Boston.  Interested in following topics: Selenium WebDriver and UFT automated frameworks, agile testing, mobile testing non-apps (browser based websites on mobile devices).

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?

 

 

It is seen that many vendors publish thousands of android apps in a month. Unfortunately, most of them remain unnoticed in the app store. Lack of proper testing is the primary reason for the failure of these apps. Professional Android App Testing Services know how to make an app user friendly. Can you say some unavoidable aspects for all android app testing services?

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?

Our company uses Storyline and Captivate tools to create ELearning courses. These output in flash. I'd like to setup some simple automation tests for our regression suites. Ideally at no cost. Appreciate any inputs. Thanks

I am using selenium ide for finding the locators,here I got a locator 'link=History of *' which works in selenium ide but when I use the same locator in web driver code it fails.

Says " Unable to locate element: {"method":"link text","selector":"History of .*"} ".
Does selenium support regular expressions in its locators?

 

Please help me out in this.

Which tool is the best for Test Management. It must be suitable for any type of software projects and it can be integrated with any third party issue tracking tools[eg. bugzilla etc.,].
