Abstract

Disclosed is a software development approach and framework that is used by developers, QA testers and tech writers in a cooperative manner and has a repository of user scenarios, automation scripts and UI artifacts. It supports the creation and execution of automated scripts that exercises the software against various scenarios for automated testing purposes, and further supports the automated generation of user interface artifacts, such as textual guidance and screen shots, linked to the exact steps of each use case, for each language supported. The proposed automated solution simultaneously produces both test scripts and documentation for information development along with the required learning and training aids for multiple languages.
