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.

Binding tests to data sources

In this section, we will explore through examples, how to redirect reading test input using various data sources. Five scenarios are going to be used to explore configuring datafiles and connections, assigning connections to automated tests, and binding test variables to data source columns. Each scenario is going to connect to one out of the four data source types which are: Excel file, XML file, built-in Test Studio table, and SQL database.

Excel data source binding

The File Comparer application has a tab called File Info, which we have not discovered yet. File Info is used to create application data. In our case, these are documents with their corresponding metadata. After opening the File Info tab of the File Comparer application, the user enters text in the two input fields which are File Name and Creator Name. In addition, there exists a checkbox called Reviewed, that explains about the readiness of the file to a concerned party, who also needs to be aware...
