Automation insights and productivity tips from LEAPWORK.
Citrix is a widely used technology that allows businesses to access virtual versions of applications or systems. Many of these businesses also have a need to automate transactions or processes that involve Citrix. Being a popular automation tool, a commonly asked question is therefore: can you automate Citrix using Selenium?
Any tester or developer who has tried to automate tests or processes involving Citrix will know the pain that comes with virtual machine automation. Unlike web and desktop applications, there are no objects in Citrix to identify - just images - which poses a considerable challenge in automation.
End-to-end tests help ensure that users can navigate through an application and complete their errands without running into any bugs. Automating end-to-end tests will help teams speed up this area of testing and become more agile. The question is how to approach automation. For many, the answer starts with a framework.
End-to-end testing is a type of test that consists of several components that, combined, are intended to simulate a user’s path through an application. By testing this path from beginning to end, the risk that a user will find a bug can be minimized.
Test automation frameworks are often the starting point for building automated tests for Oracle and transitioning to agile development. But they rarely allow businesses to leverage the full potential of automation. Learn why in this blog post.
If you’re working with DevOps, there’s a good chance that you’ll know about continuous testing. In this blog post we take a look at continuous testing to understand why it plays a key role in DevOps, and why test automation is essential in enabling continuity.
Test automation is widely known and used by businesses globally to achieve efficient, accurate testing. Continuous testing, on the other hand, is a newer term. In this blog post we define what continuous testing is and discuss test automation's role in achieving continuous testing.
Selenium is one of the most popular open-source testing tools on the market. Many choose Selenium when starting out with automation because it’s free and has a large user-community. It’s no wonder that mainframe testers also ask if Selenium can be used to test their mainframe applications.
There’s a major difference between automating twenty test cases and automating 2000 test cases; while it’s completely possible to take an ad-hoc approach when there are only a few test cases, it becomes an entirely different story when test cases run into the thousands.
Test automation brings many benefits with it, such as increased execution and reduced risk. But these benefits may be diminished if the tests aren’t performing as intended. There are several reasons why tests become unstable, most of which you can turn around by following these best practices and guidelines.
If you have introduced test automation as a means to achieve more efficient testing, you’re probably also interested in making the test result analysis process as efficient as possible. This requires the right approach and the right set of tools.
Building a DevOps pipeline is no simple task. There are many things to consider and many decisions to make in the process. Automation is a key ingredient for a successful DevOps lifecycle, particularly test automation, which is why we’ll take a closer look at it in this blog post.
The need for DevOps has emerged in recent years as a result of a pressure to release product features and updates more frequently. The ability to deliver quality at speed requires increased collaboration and communication across the pipeline as well as adoption of automation, and this is what DevOps work towards.
DevOps is, as the name implies, the bridging of development and operations. DevOps is many things. It’s a job title, it’s an approach, it’s a methodology, and it’s a way of thinking.
There are countless automated regression testing tools for web applications on the market. One of the most popular is Selenium WebDriver. In this post, we’ll take a look at Selenium and help you evaluate if it’s the right option for you and your testing team.
Regression testing is a time-consuming, yet critical, part of testing and quality assurance. This is why many try to automate their regression testing suite. But setting up automation can, in and of itself, be a time-consuming and costly affair, often diminishing the positive effects of automation.
You’re probably here because you’ve decided to automate your regression tests. So far so good. But how will you get started? What should you consider? Should you just jump straight into it or take a strategic approach and prepare yourself for the project that lies ahead? Consider the 8 points outlined in this guide and you’ll probably know the answers to these questions by then.
If you’re using test automation and recently began looking into RPA, or if you are new to test automation but using RPA as a means to achieve efficient operations, you might at some point have wondered what the difference is between the two often interchanged terms, as well as if you can use the same tool for both.
Are you getting started with Oracle RPA or test automation? Then learn the basics here, with our podcast episode on how to succeed with automation and our whitepaper that covers everything you need to know about automating Oracle.
Robotic process automation (RPA) can be used for Oracle to speed up processes and lower risk and costs. Learn how and see examples of use cases for Oracle process automation in this blog post.
For businesses using Oracle software, testing is an essential part of ensuring that business-critical processes run as intended in and between Oracle applications and the business’ remaining ecosystem.
Navigating the pool of Oracle automation tools can be a difficult task - there are many options, each with their own pros and cons. In this blog post, we help you with a checklist of the most important features for Oracle automation tools.
When researching options for an Oracle test automation tool, there are a number of things to consider, such as what capabilities the tool should have and if the tool should be open-source or licensed.
Every day, an array of tasks are performed in and between Microsoft Office 365 tools, such as Excel, PowerPoint, and Word. Many of these tasks are repetitive by nature and when performed manually over and over become not only tedious to perform, but also error-prone.
In recent years, the pace of software development has increased tremendously. Consumers not only expect fast updates and releases, they also expect high quality along with that speed.
