Learning Software Testing with Test Studio

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.

Test execution settings and debugging

Rarely is an automated test going to execute successfully from the first hit, and if it does, we should be careful for logical hidden problems. The automation errors fall under the following three categories:

  • The first category holds the syntax problems that do not allow your code to compile in the first place and therefore the test cannot be executed.

  • The second category holds problems dormant inside the automated steps and will not come out until execution. We can list, for example, problems in recognizing an object at runtime.

  • The third category holds problems that are not even necessarily revealed during runtime. These are the most malicious types of problems, since the symptoms are not as flagrant as the preceding two categories.

In the third case, the test executes normally until the person verifying the automation becomes suspicious about the executed test result. The root cause of such problems is an embedded logical error in the translation of the...
