Reimagine Test Automation: Insights from Romanian Testing Days Workshop

In today’s fast-paced development environments, test automation is more crucial than ever. As we prepare for our workshop at Romanian Testing Days, we aim to showcase the transformative power of a comprehensive test automation framework. Here’s a sneak peek into what you can expect.

The primary goal of our workshop is to demonstrate how a robust framework can streamline automation tasks, making them more manageable and efficient. Traditionally, different technologies have been used for API, UI, unit, and performance tests, each with its distinct implementation. However, we believe in a unified approach using a fully integrated and flexible framework. By understanding and incorporating the distinctions of each test type into a single technology, we can handle all functionalities cohesively, using a single technology and programming language.

Comparing API and UI Testing

Both API and UI tests can vary from simple to complex. For API tests, the complexity arises from the need to test multiple endpoints, while UI tests involve user interactions that can range from straightforward to highly intricate processes. Despite these differences, the core principle remains the same: providing and validating information. In this workshop we will show how to utilize abstraction layers to manage these interactions effectively, regardless of the type of test.

Integrating Performance Testing

Performance testing is essential for understanding how your application handles stress and load. The problem with most performance testing tools is that they have limited UI functionality and again require specialized tests and programming languages. Why not use existing E2E tests instead?

In our workshop you will discover how to leverage existing functional tests and run them under load, letting us emulate real-world scenarios and gain valuable, actionable insights into system performance.

Embracing Data-Driven Testing

Data-driven testing offers significant reusability and efficiency advantages over hard-coded testing – automated or not. Minimize tests and maximize data to help reduce maintenance and future-proof your test automation strategy.

Instead of writing new tests for each scenario, we use a single test flow with variable data inputs. This method reduces redundancy and enhances test coverage. During the workshop, we will guide you through creating and managing data-driven tests, showcasing their application in complex scenarios such as insurance policy processing.

Advanced Test Automation Techniques

Our workshop will delve into advanced techniques like:

  • Multi-user, multi-session testing for comprehensive validation across different user roles while emulating realistic processes.
  • Reusable components and specialized widgets to ensure consistency and efficiency.
  • Restart capabilities to allow tests to resume from points of failure, saving time and resources through intelligent automation.
  • Even document testing and more…
