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.

SQL integration

So far in this chapter, we have seen how Test Studio offers the standard built-in reports. However, knowing how much reporting is critical for making comprehensive decisions, your organization may need more specialized reports. So, this section takes the VS result file generated by Test Studio and suggests methods to create customized advanced reporting. These reports are going to be the result of the following processes:

  1. Submitting the contents of VS result file to an SQL database

  2. Creating queries based on this database table

  3. Using MS Excel to import data returned by these queries

  4. Creating charts based on this data

First, let's examine the content of these files. Open the result file of the preceding example in a text editor to view its content. As mentioned before, it contains XML data where some of its significance is described in the following elements:

  • The TestRun element holds:

    • A unique identifier referring to the test list's execution ID in its id attribute

    • The name of the...
