Graph showing how testing earlier costs less and means fewer overall defects The Shift-Left Approach to Software Testing

The earlier you find out about problems in your code, the less impact they have and the less it costs to remediate them. Therefore, it's helpful to move testing activities earlier in the software development lifecycle—shifting it left in the process timeline. This article explores the shift-left methodology and how you can approach shifting left in your organization.

Are functions in page objects for big projects a good practice?

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!

I am conducting a survey about Test Automation tools and I was wondering if you could help me by responding:

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

Has anyone migrated from Selenium to Endtest?

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

Any feedback?

Experience or knowledge of performing acceptance testing on automated conveyor systems

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.

Racecar on a track Test Faster: How We Cut Our Test Cycle Time in Half

In just a year, one test team reduced its test cycle by more than 50 percent. It took analysis, planning, and effort—first they looked into how they spent their time, and then they questioned whether they could reduce time in any of those areas. Once they knew where they could be more efficient, they could start tackling their blockers. Here's how you can, too.

So you have the responsibility of a new team and getting an entirely new web automation test infrastructure up and running. Here are the hurdles, pitfalls, and successes one QA director encountered, along with the milestones the team defined to measure success, how they migrated their existing manual tests, and the path they took to establish the new web test automation initiative.
