Agile Test

Introduction

 

More and more team develop and release the product rapidly. However, it is not easy to run all the test case manually in every build to analyze the defect status and assure the code quality. Especially for web-based product, compatibility test will make test efforts in multiples.

I am a program manager who is responsible for the whole product life cycle. To solve the actually QA problem in my team, I developed this tool in the spare time to fit the team management needs regarding user stories, feature requirements and test cases.

fluint

Introduction

Fluint is a pretty advanced unit testing framework build specifically for Adobe Flex solutions. Generall to say, it is a testing framework based on the concepts of FlexUnit and JUnit. It enhances the function of asynchronous. At the same time it is a graphical testing runner and integrated continuous building systems with an optional Adobe AIR client for directory watching. It’s an open source software, hence could use it free. Fluint adds some interesting features that are not covered by the basic FlexUnit framework endorsed by Adobe by both embracing basic asynchronous communications as well as direct integration testing.

XMLUnit

Introduction

XMLUnit is an open source project licensed under the BSD license. It provides a small library of interrelated classes that simplify each of the different ways to test XML pieces that have been outlined in the previous section. Special APIs are provided to simplify writing unit tests with J/NUnit, but the library itself is fully usable without any testing framework at all. There is a Java and a .NET version of XMLUnit.

XMLUnit’s APIs will accept “pieces of XML” as input using several different forms. In most cases they can be provided as InputStreams, Readers, Strings, InputSources or readily parsed DOM Document instances.

XMLUnit also provides a Transform class that can be used to apply an XSLT transformation to an existing input.

SynTESK

Introduction

SynTESK (Syntax Testing Kit) is the toolkit for testing parsers of formal languages. SynTESK facilitates validation of correspondence of a parser implementation to the specification of the given formal language. In fact, the tool checks that parser recognizes the given formal language.

There are many reliable systems of automated parser generation now. However complexity of real languages is such that even application of systems of automated generation to parsers development demands writing of addition hand-held code, mostly for the resolution of conflicts at syntactical analysis - so-called look-ahead procedure. SynTESK tool allows finding errors in such manually written procedures.

Datamaker

Introduction

Datamaker™ is the world’s most powerful synthetic Test Data Generation tool, allowing you to use synthetic test data creation techniques to make exactly the data you need to fully test your applications, faster! 
Using intelligent data profiling techniques, Datamaker™ is able to understand how your data is related, then create synthetic test data – which contains all of the characteristics of ‘live data’, but without the sensitive content – to enhance your existing data. The result is more efficient test cycles, which enable you to detect defects earlier and produce quality software quickly.

WSOP

Introduction

WSOP is a performance testing program designed for website load time optimization. It makes the complete load time analysis for all page elements and provides a set of reports, statistics and suggestions on performance improvements to guarantee that the maximum number of users will see your web pages and feel comfortable with your site. It tests a site automatically and does not require any special knowledge. The program shows how people will see your web site using various connection types (DSL, ISDN, modem, etc.). The program supports custom testing scenarios, checks the site for errors and broken links, and can highlight problem elements through a built-in HTML viewer. WSOP works under Win95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003 operating systems.

XUnit - Code Driven Testing

XUnit - Code Driven Testing What are xUnit tools? But, before answering this question lets define and understand the ‘code driven testing’ term

Code Driven Testing Code driven test automation is a key feature of Agile software development, where it is known as Test-driven development (TDD). Unit tests are written to define the functionality before the code is written. Only when all tests pass is the code considered complete. Proponents argue that it produces software that is both more reliable and less costly than code that is tested by manual exploration. It is considered more reliable because the code coverage is better, and because it is run constantly during development rather than once at the end of a waterfall development cycle. The developer discovers defects immediately upon making a change, when it is least expensive to fix. Finally, code refactoring is safer; transforming the code into a simpler form with less code duplication, but equivalent behavior, is much less likely to introduce new defects.

actiWATE

Introduction

actiWATE is a Java-based software platform intended to make the test automation process simple and cost-effective for automation of regression testing of web applications. It consists of actiWATE Framework and additional modules. Currently only one module is released - actiWATE TWA. Framework is a Java-based library. Automated tests use this library for interacting with web application. actiWATE executes tests without real Internet browser; instead actiWATE Framework emulates Internet browser on its own. actiWATE tests are fully compatible with JUnit and can be run by any JUnit tests runner.

Automated Testing Tools, Compare and Select

You cannot complete a development process without doing an appropriate testing cycle. You start with manual testing but soon wish to add automated testings.
With the availability of so many testing tools, selecting the tool that will answer your needs becomes a job for professionals.
The tool analyzing process should be finalized with a check-box table that sums up all your system requirements, and point you towards the most appropriate tools, that you should try.
Your final selection will then direct you to the best suited tool for your work flow and testing needs.
Remember: There is no such thing as Best Tool, rather the Most Appropriate tool.
