Test Automation with Open Source Tools in an Agile SDLC Process
Test automation, open source tools, and agile methods are three important trends in software development. The instructors present a case study of a project where the project team integrated these three methods to build and deliver a critical application. Using automated testing as a foundation piece of the process the team met the demands of an aggressive schedule while responding to fluctuating requirements. The use of open source tools for test automation reduced the project cost while providing additional flexibility during the project.
