Hands-on Test Automation
This course is designed as a two day hands on workshop in the use of 2 automated test tools - Winrunner and Loadrunner,
It is designed to provide delegates with foundation knowledge of test automation.
It will focus on practical approaches to test automation based on the experience of the presenters.
The course is split into two groups:
(i) Automated Test tools and Regression testing
Testing to ensure a new software release has not taken a step backwards, or "regressed", is called "regression testing"
Even at the best of times Regression testing when executed manually is painful, monotonous and error prone
It is said that the only practical way to manage regression testing is to automate it.
Effective automated test tools are expected to facilitate a thorough testing of software conducted both quickly and repeatedly.
This ensures that costly resources are not tied up for long periods of time executing tedious manual tests.
(ii) Automated Test tools and Performance testing
Today, companies make it a priority to develop effective and robust strategies for maintaining acceptable system performance.
Performance can easily be the biggest quality risk associated with any mission critical computer system.
Testing the performance of any system will undoubtedly give an insight into the system's performance and response times when subjected to real world conditions.
Performance testing exposes major usability problems which may not be revealed by less formal testing, this is especially true of problems relating to specific skills or expectations of the users.
