Automation

Test automation provides opportunity to test an enormously higher count of cases, than it would be possible in case of manual testing.

Why

Conducting regression tests is an essential stage of implementing an application. Doing it manually is a time consuming and tedious process. Due to frequent changes and improvements that can influence behaviour of an already tested elements of an application, the process must often be repeated many times. Despite implementing various strategies to minimize the scope of regression tests, conducting them on time is a challenging task for the team. Performing the same tests multiple times, often under time pressure is a problem as well – especially since it makes them less accurate and does not check the application thoroughly enough.
Testing an application through the user interface is not always the best solution. Usually, the application logic can be checked much faster and in a wider range on the API level. The cost of disclosing and avoiding errors is much lower, if a proper test structure is applied. Manual testing does not allow for such strategy to be used.

How we automate the tests

We analyze the system’s architecture and functionality in order to devise a testing strategy that will merge manual and automatic tests.Then, we adapt different variants of the automated tests to the system’s construction. We advise how to improve its testability and coordinate the testing processes on the unit, integration and system levels. We choose well-verified tools to automate and start tests. We prepare the test environment and implement the tests. We care about keeping good communication about the results and share our knowledge to teach our clients about effective use of the built ecosystem.

Advantages

  • Making the tests less time consuming
  • Possibility of frequent and safe implementations
  • Widening the scope of tests
  • Thorough system verification
  • Optimal use of resources
  • Reduction of the manual testers burden

Test automation

Operations performed multiple times in the same manner and in identical conditions are worth automating to save time and reduce costs. Regression tests seem a perfect candidate for this process, then. While performed by software, they can help discover even the tiniest changes in how key functions of applications perform and alarm respective people. They can be executed multiple times, also at night and on free days, so they make use of the test environment and precious hardware resources in the optimal manner.
