Test Automation

DevOps Test Automation

Every software organization must define a TEST Automation strategy to increase test coverage, reduce the (test) cycle time and to improve the TTM (time to market) in software/application development life cycle. Usage of Test Automation tools is the best way to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and coverage of your software testing. Test Automation is the process of automating the formalized manual testing efforts that are repetitive and time consuming, or automating the steps that are difficult to execute manually. Test Automation is the key to have a successful Continuous Delivery pipeline. Automated testing is a software driven testing methodology and could be broadly classified into

Unit Testing

Testing the individual fragmented pieces of the application (also called as units – could be a single method, a whole class or a functionality) and check whether they are fit for use. Unit testing is often automated, either by developers or white-box testers by adding test code to application code.

Functional Testing

A full-fledged testing strategy to test the entire functionality of the application or program or system. Also termed as Regression testing in manual testing methods. It is a challenge to automate the end-to-end test strategy, however technology companies should thrive to automate as much as possible on the functional test scope.

UI Testing

Testing of Graphical User Interface (GUI) elements to test if they meet the GUI requirements like size, location, events, experience of the UI elements. Test strategy consists of exercising GUI events, inputs to GUI objects and test/record the reactiveness

Security Testing

Is a testing process to check if the application software is vulnerable to attacks, has the potential to be hacked or could be logged in without proper authorization etc. In simple words, it is a process to determine that an information system protects data and maintains functionality as needed. The six basic security concepts that need to be covered by security testing are: Vulnerability, Penetration (PEN), Confidentiality, Integrity, Authentication, Availability, Authorization and Non-repudiation.

Region/Locale Specific Testing

Localization testing checks the quality of a product’s localization for a particular target region/locale. Localization testing can be executed only on the localized version of a product. Localization is the process of adapting internationalized software for a specific region or language by adding locale-specific components and translating text.
