Test Design for Automation
Automation is often seen as a technical challenge-a matter of applying the right technology, tools, and smart programming talent. However, test automation often lags behind expectations and is difficult to manage and maintain, especially for large and complex systems. Hans Buwalda describes the role that the right choices for test design can play in automation success. Specifically, discover how good automated tests are not the same as the automation of good manual tests. Instead, you should break down your tests into modules-building blocks-where each has a clear scope and purpose. The test cases you design within each module need to reflect that scope and nothing more. Hans also explains how to separate the automation details from the test itself with keyword-based testing and describes how all these principles fit together to give you a better result with less time and effort.
