Software testers are considering automated testing as the best approach in checking errors. Today, there are many tools available which enables you to write scripts and code testing conditions that makes testing more quick and easy. For a beginner it may take more time to make test cases.
So, how much development information one should have to shift towards automated testing?
You should have strong programming skills to program test cases correctly.
1st Part (C concepts)
- Data types
- String methods
- Conditional statements
- Looping statements
- Read/write files
2nd Part (OOPS concepts)
- Method overloading
- Set/get method
- Class/field method modifier
3rd Part (Frame work design)
- Class inheritance
- Base classes
- Method overriding
- Static classes
- Inner classes
- Abstract classes
Which Tool Should I Learn For Automation?
There are many tools available for automation testing. However, Selenium is the most recommended. This is because of the following reasons.
There are various tools which can be used for automation testing. However, Selenium is considered the most preferred tools.
Here are few features of Selenium tool –
Selenium caters the need to automate testing for web applications because of its robustness and user friendliness.
User friendly – Selenium caters the need to testing for webb software because it is user friendly and robustness.
Browser Compatibility – Testers runs Selenium for browser compatibility testing of your Web application.
Flexibly – It allows easy identification of UI elements because of its flexible functionality.
Accurate testing – Produce actionable knowledge by examining the outcome into 350 or more functional charts and performance
The most exciting part of using Selenium is its capability to be used with other tools, that helps in managing important areas. Additionally, it is possible to visualize and test bt taking screenshots of current browser screen.
Essentials of Selenium Test Automation
- Generate a script using Selenium IDE
- If necessary, add locations and identify where assertions are compulsory.
- Format the test and code it that gives best results.
- Covert the script into programming language and then use Selenium server to rum the test.
In short, selenium is a best tool in validating the workflow but, it should not be the part of development. Once you acquire the knowledge about C concepts, OOPS concepts and framework design you can go for automation testing.
