Abstract

This invention targets to solve a common challenge of generating / maintaining applicaiton recordings/ media for training or supporting or demo purpose. The core idea is to leverage manual /automatic testing to generate and update the recording media automatically. Once planned user scenario/ test cases s for a solution under testing is confirmed. The recording agent will record the user interaction with the underlying application and upload the recordings to the repository server. This works for both manual testing and automated testing. Moreover, if the recordings are not ideal, which can be re-generated by leveraging next round of planned testing execution. The testing data can also be specified to generate consistent and meaning user interactions.

System and Method to generate and collect recording media files by leveraging automated or manual testing

Nowadays, more and more enterprise / organizations have the needs to deliver the demo, training media to their target audiences (customers, employees or potential users). However, due to the separation of duties, the media files have to generate by dedicated resource without the total knowledge of the underlying applications for recording .

The most common way by far is the have someone design scenarios and use dedicated resource , environment, recording tool to generate the recordings on a specific application build. However, these efforts will have to be continued in next application iteration / release to reflect the changes in application for recording . This increasingly has been a common challenge of generate and update recording media effectively for enterprise users .

Our invention can handle the following common challenges :


- Generate recording media for training, demo and application debugging purpose by leveraging collective intelligence and efforts
- Replace generated media when major user scenarios are changed

Our invention is focused on resolving the common issue of significant effort to generate recording media for training , demo and application debugging purpose .

This disclosure presents an idea about collect and generate raw media recording materials in a subtle way , which won't require dedicated resources and efforts specifically . Once planned user scenarios for a solution under testing is confirmed , the recording agent will record the user interaction with the underlying application and upload the recordings to the repository server as independent elements . This works for both manual testing and automated testing . Moreover, if the recordings are not ideal, it can be re-generated by leveraging next round of planned testing execution . The testing data can also be specified to generate consistent and meaning user interactions .

Compared with known method, this invention has great advantage of saving time , cost and effort. The professional media composer can use these accumulated raw materials to create ideal media files to serve different purpose .

Besides the demo, training and marketing advertisement purpose , the generated media files can also be used for debugging , auditing.
