Overview of this book

Test Studio is Telerik's QA solution for automating your manual testing. With Test Studio's standalone edition or Visual Studio plugin, you can rule out the possibility of unreliable test execution and UI recognition, non indicative test results and reports, dispersed test repository, low code coverage, and unaffordable learning curves. With no code, this tool provides an intuitive IDE to effortlessly create maintainable tests. If you are looking for a solution to automate testing for your web, desktop, or mobile application, you can now benefit from Test Studio's rich automation features. "Learning Software Testing with Test Studio" will illustrate how to reliably automate test cases when it is time to relinquish manual testing habits. This book is all about less theory and more hands-on examples to present a complete manual and automated solution for your ASP .NET, WPF, Silverlight or iOS apps. This book gets you started directly with automation in Test Studio by exploiting its recording powers through series of concrete test cases built around the equipped applications. Each chapter starts with a typical automation problem which is then approached using Test Studio specialized automation features. You will learn how to create record and playback functional, performance, and load tests. Furthermore, we will see how to insert verification steps, logical constructs, convenient logging operations, and how to convert test scripts in order to implement keyword and data-driven architectures. To endow your tests with additional flexibility, each recorded automation feature will be approached from its coded perspective through the usage of the underlying ArtOfTest Test Studio automation library. This book also illustrates how Test Studio can automate pre-conditions, test result inputting, and the capturing of system states during manual test case execution in order to keep the tester's attention focused on the important details.

Chapter 2. Automating Functional Tests

You have been recently working on an application as part of the Quality Control team. It's been a month since the project has started where as quality control engineers you work with have been designing and generating test cases. The project test leader calls the team for an urgent meeting early in the morning.

"Test case coverage is low and the manual testers' effort in regression testing is insufficient knowing the degradation impact from developers' bug fixes. Testing is falling behind" says the team leader.

Two hours of discussion went on before a decision was taken. Automation seems to be the solution to the problem at hand and knowing your usual high commitment and performance, you are going to be part of the team carrying out this task. All the attendees already knew that lots of factors related to the problem at hand are working against the team's benefit: the lack of knowledge in automation and the tool technology, the time constraint to meet...
