The implementation of Test Automation is often under estimated. By purely focusing on a tool, clients often only realize short term gains limiting or even missing the return on investment. To maximize the benefits and return on investment in both the short and long of Automation Test Strategy clients should look beyond the short term horizon of the project. The implementation of a test automation tool should be accompanied by a framework of
Test Automation Framework (TAFPro) Benefits
Many clients look at the short term goal ‘the next test cycle’ or ‘the go live date’. Without addressing the framework the test tool becomes a onetime use where scripts too cumbersome to manage become out of date, maintenance becomes onerous and product knowledge gained in the initial impetus of the project is lost.
By taking a boarder view and supporting the test tool with a framework of procedures and methodologies the benefits of test automation will be realized both in the short term and beyond the life of the project.
TestPro has addressed the onerous effort in implementing a framework by embodying a Hybrid model framework into an off the shelf product, TAFPro. TAFPro combined with Rational Functional Tester and Selenium for Java scripting provides a readymade multiuser Automated Software Testing environment.
