The web has seen a dramatic change over the past few years with mobile becoming a big part of the overall experience. Test automation is a key enabler for Agile software development and subsequently for continuous integration and delivery. Automated tests are very useful to test your app “while you sleep”. Many software companies are suddenly challenged with having to provide solid test automation for mobile with its two flavors of mobile web and native apps.
As stated in previous post – Textbox, Button, Image, Checkbox, Dropdown, Hyperlink, etc. – everything which is visible in an application is known as “Object”. Automation is all about identifying these “Objects” in the application and the subsequent “Actions” to-be-performed on it. But the question is – How do you identify different ‘Objects’ in the application via HP UFT?
First of all, the question ‘What’s the average salary of Software Test Engineer’ is like asking ‘What’s the average house rent in Bengaluru, India?’ You tell me…Can’t? Yeah! You need some more filters to arrive at the rent – the house type (whether it’s a 1BHK/2BHK/Villa/etc.), the locality, furnishing status, society amenities, etc. In the same way, the pay scale for Software Testing domain (in fact for any technology) varies depending on multiple factors.
Rooting Android Phone is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as root access). At its most basic, “rooting” is the process by which one gains access to the administrative commands and functions of an operating system. Still confused?
The first step for any aspiring Selenium enthusiast is to understand Selenium IDE. Why? Simple! Since many of us don’t know programming and it’s the easiest way to get started…
‘Methodology’ – means the same in Software Engineering as in English, a procedure. Yeah! You might be wondering then what’s all the fuss about it. Why so confusion. I too feel the same way. It’s just that too many methodologies have evolved since the inception of Software development & testing – different procedures applied to structure, plan & control the process (i.e. inception, requirement gathering, design, coding, testing & go-live).
Just like versioning of any piece of code/software which enables us to keep track of the changes we make to the code, we also can implement this feature on ALM (or Quality center) to track the changes made to test entities of ALM.
Multiple Operating Systems, Devices, Network operators and interfaces increase the risk of failures, if not tested properly. Keeping in mind the permutations & combinations involved in App testing, let’s try to answer the basic question – Test Coverage – or the types of testing required to get that awesome App experience.
As you all might know – HP UFT is a commercial (licensed) tool. There are two main types of UFT licenses – Seat and Concurrent.
We are talking about the dream of building a successful career in Automation Testing, about the dream of being able to understand and master at least one Automation tool in international market. And for those of you who are dreaming on similar lines or are looking forward to it, would be excited to know that the dream of Automation Testing is free!!!
Understanding the different offerings – IDE, Library, Framework, API, Software Development Kit for Custom Software Development.
“Objects” are the fundamental Building Blocks for any Test Automation & its necessary that you fully understand the concept.
There are a number of data sources for programming language statistics including code repositories, Q&A discussions, job advertisements, social media mentions, tutorial page visits, learning video views, developer surveys and more. Let’s take a look at the most popular options available today…
UFT supports automation for wide range of development environment like Windows (.Net, Java), Web, SAP, Oracle, etc. And this is made possible by the corresponding UFT Add-ins you install. Its like knowing the requirements prior to the start of testing 🙂 Yeah! UFT add-ins are that important, so pay attention.
