Introduction to Cucumber Cucumber is a testing approach/tool that supports Behaviour Driven Development (BDD). It provides a way to write tests that anybody can understand, regardless of their extent of technical knowledge. It explains the behavior of the application in a simple English text using Gherkin language. I hope that you got a glimpse about what is Cucumber. Now, let’s move further and understand some of the facts that depict the need for Cucumber in a testing framework.
Ranorex Test Automation Tool In this Ranorex tutorial, we will take a more hands-on approach to set it up and run a test automation job. However, before we delve into the details, let’s take a quick look at why Ranorex is a powerful test automation tool. A GUI-based test automation framework, Ranorex is used for testing web-based, desktop, and mobile applications. Ranorex does not have a native scripting language to automate tests. It uses standard programming languages such as VB.NET and C#. Why Ranorex? A perfect end-to-end test automation tool Many automated tests require a mix of technologies and devices. This mix may include a combination of a hybrid mobile app, a web app, and a desktop app with backend database services. Ranorex can run tests across multiple platforms & devices. Easy for newbies but powerful for experts Ranorex can record, and playback test runs with minimum coding. It is easy to maintain with excellent support and extensive documentation. It has same day productivity and a fully automated IDE. While it is easy to use for beginners, this test automation tool is no slouch in the hands of experts. It supports C# & VB.net languages along with Selenium Web Driver integration in Ranorex studio 7 & above. Consequently, Ranorex also supports test execution in Selenium supported browsers. It combines data-driven testing, parameterization & reporting in a single test automation suite

RSpec RSpec is a testing framework. It’s what allows you to write and run your tests.An analogous tool would be MiniTest. In my experience, most commercial Rails projects use RSpec and most open-source Ruby projects use MiniTest. At any Rails job you’re more likely to be using RSpec than MiniTest. (I’m not sure why this is the way it is.) Capybara Some Rails tests operate at a “low level”, meaning no browser interaction is involved. Other “high level” tests do actually spin up a browser and click links, fill out form fields, etc.Low-level tests can be executed with just RSpec and nothing more. But for tests that use the browser, something more is needed.This is where Capybara comes into the picture. Capybara provides helper methods like fill_in to fill in a form field, click_on to click a button, etc.Please note that Capybara does NOT have to be used in conjunction with Cucumber. It’s completely possible to write integration tests in Rails with just RSpec and Capybara.
One of our large enterprise clients develops user-facing experiences using AEM (Adobe Experience Manager). With AEM, developers can author a page using various components (think of it as “WordPress for enterprises”). How do we test that the AEM web page is available and is performing as expected? How can we do it in an automated fashion? Writing your first AEM authoring test with Bobcat This guide uses bobcat-aem-junit template to create tests. Some concepts are the same as in first test guide and we won’t explain them here. Context We will write a test that will check the following: Login to AEM author instance We create simple test page with few components Configure text component Check if component has entered values Remove created page after test is finished. We will use AEM 6.4 instance.
Future Of Mobile Application Automation
Introduction to Appium: Appium is a mobile automation tool based on very well known and widely accepted web automation tool "Selenium".Appium guys have actually extended Selenium Webdriver API for mobile automation support. Appium library has extended RemoteWebDriver class from Selenium API and created AndroidDriver and IOSDriver classes to support mobile automation on Android/IOS platforms. Working of Appium: Appium is very similar to Selenium in communication and architecture.It uses JSON-wire protocol for communication and supports script development in languages like:Java,C#,Python,Ruby,PHP,Java Script Appium uses automation frameworks which comes with Software Development Kits(SDK) of Android/IOS On Android it uses UIAutomator and on IOS it uses UIAutomation. Appium supports automation of all kinds of mobile applications like Native,web and hybrid.
The following features were introduced or enhanced in StormRunner: UI Enhancements: New UI layout that includes breadcrumbs for easy test navigation. Duplicate the definition of an existing test to a new test. An enhanced Reports page layout includes new metrics and an easy navigation bar. In the Dashboard, you can sort column values in the widget summary view.
APPIUM Tutorial For Beginners
JIRA – Agile Project Agile methodology for software development has gained immense popularity in the recent years. Agile Projects follow an incremental approach to development of the requirements. The highlights of an Agile/Scrum Project are: The requirements are created/agreed upon and the grouped together into a Product Backlog The requirements (User stories) are ranked in the order of priority and business importance Once ranked, the stories are assigned developmental cycles (Sprints) that last for approx. 4-6 weeks. The detailed documentation is avoided. Instead, a scrum board is maintained that will show the status and progress. JIRA successfully supports all the activities listed above for projects following an Agile Methodology. In this article, we will see how. Note – Firstly, you will need JIRA Agile add-on if you have not gotten it already.
JIRA Administration: We are going to learn all about JIRA administration today. This is a unique opportunity to learn the admin aspects of a Project/Incident/Test Management tool. This is the 5th tutorial in our JIRA learning series. Check all the tutorials in this series on this JIRA Tutorials page. Not all of them are as effective (and simple) and as accessible from the UI as it is for JIRA. So, as always, concepts are more important than the tool specific details – look out for the operations and their importance- that will help you to estimate what you can expect from the “Admin” module of any tool.
JIRA User Module – Conclusion We have seen the different kinds of issues and how to create them in our previous JIRA Tutorials. This is a next JIRA tutorial in this series where we will learn how to use them, the workflow progress and the reporting feature of JIRA. The issue once created can be accessed by searching the ID, browsing the “Issues” menu item or going to the project details and checking the issues tab. When you access an issue and click on its link, the details will be displayed. All the actions that can be performed on the particular issue are available on the header of an issue details screen:
A sub-task is nothing but a division of a parent issue (task) into chunks of work that can be assigned and tracked individually. Example 1: A QA related example could be of the task of Test documentation. Test documentation by itself is an activity that might take a week to finish. Say, it involves the following aspects: Test plan documentation which takes 2 days. Test case documentation – 2 days, Test plan review – ½ day and Test case review – 1 day. Also assume that there are 2 resources. In this case we can create a JIRA issue of the type task for “Test documentation” and have the following four sub tasks under it: Test plan documentation – assigned to resource 1 Test case documentation – assigned to resource 2 Test plan review- assigned to resource 2 Test case review- assigned to resource 1 By doing so, it is easier to have a better insight into the progress task wise and resource wise by breaking a sizeable parent task into sub-tasks.
Working with JIRA issues JIRA – we are in the midst of self-learning this tool. In the last JIRA tutorial, we talked about the underlying JIRA process – the Incident Management and a few high-level details of the tool itself. Today we move on to yet another interesting topic – How are issues handled in JIRA? Before we get into more details let us reiterate what an issue is: An issue is anything that you would track to completion. Some examples specific to QA can be – a document to be created, a document to be reviewed, a bug or an environmental issue.
