Test Lab Stability through Health Check Test Automation
New application code is installed on Sunday. Your test team arrives on Monday to run test scripts and certify the release. Unfortunately, one environmental problem leads to another and suddently it's Friday before you run your first test script against the new code. Does this sound familiar? One way to buck this trend is to run daily health checks on the test environment. By running daily health checks, you'll minimize the time required to test new application code installs. Plus, you'll improve your test environment stability, reduce the number of variables to examine when a test fails, and reduce tension between your development and test teams.
