Parallel Development Parallel Automation (PDPA) -a kind of Agility Automation
Tool helps to write automation code from manual test cases with parallel to
application feature development automatically.
Problem 1: How to achieve quality testing and development in same development
cycle? So we can save extra testing time post development.
Problem 2: How to convert manual test cases to automation script for carry forwarding
quick test execution immediately post development without having a standard delay of
preparing only test cases?
Ans: I have created an eclipse plugin that helps the available resource to start writing
test cases (as requirement validation) in a plain readable text format parallel to
development activity by looking to mock-up. Then convert the manual test cases to
automation script in a fraction of seconds where the candidate can finish the
concreteness of the scripts quickly and place in a pipeline for its execution and
validation once the feature development is ready and released.
It helps the team not to waste the precious time, waiting for completion of development
of an application feature, by carry forwarding testing after development. This approach
is "Parallel Development Parallel Testing (PDPT)"
Problem 3: How to get complete details of test cases (UI, Rest, DB or Unit etc.) are
validated over the application feature post its execution automatically.
Ans: It helps to execute the test cases (ID + Description) mentioned in the text file in
sequence and generates the report accordingly post execution. So, the report is
generated with Test ID + Test Description marking different color for different status
through a third-party tool.
Problem 4: The drawbacks of third-party tool is it doesn't allow auto converting manual
test cases to automation test scripts. It only follows the traditional testing approach of
"First Development Last Testing (FDLT)".
Problem 5: Achieving Globalization Testing without touching the real test code?
Ans: It also helps to add different language texts in xml file or in database to validate
over the UI once the feature/element is ready.
This automation framework can easily be adopted in a in Agile project development.
There is already availability of many BDD (Behavior Driven Development) framework
that too helps to start writing manual business requirements or behaviors in s...
