Automation insights and productivity tips from LEAPWORK.
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.
An increasing number of companies are seeing the benefits of RPA in Workday®. Unfortunately, developing RPA functions is costly and time-consuming, requiring new personnel with specialized and expensive skills. So how can a company get the most out of automation without incurring massive implementation and maintenance costs?
Data is found everywhere. Whether you are testing an application’s functionality with different data parameters or automating the process of moving data from A to B, you have probably realized by now that data is found to be a key component in most automation cases.
Automation is a prerequisite for success with DevOps. But how do you achieve continuous delivery? The answer lies in automation and faster feedback loops.
A CI/CD pipeline aims to mitigate the risks involved in releasing the software into production. However, its efficiency relies heavily on automation, so achieving success with DevOps stands or falls with how well the development department works with automation and which tools are at their disposal.
Oracle is one of the largest enterprise software vendors in the world, providing global businesses with databases, ERPs and other solutions for core business processes to run on.
There are numerous processes in Oracle that can be automated with RPA - so many that it’s close to impossible to list them here. But most of these processes have one thing in common; they involve data migration in some shape or form.
For businesses using Oracle software, testing is a crucial element in ensuring that business-critical processes run as intended in and between Oracle applications and the business’ remaining ecosystem.
For most enterprises, Oracle is a part of a larger ecosystem of technologies and platforms that, together, make up the business’ core processes. This has implications for the automation tool; it must be robust and reliable, it must be capable of integrating multiple technologies, and it shouldn’t add additional complexity to an already complex web of systems.
When researching options for an Oracle test automation tool, there are a number of things to consider, such as what capabilities should the tool have and if the tool should be open-source or licensed.
When we think of automated testing for web applications, the first thing that comes to mind is Selenium. And no wonder why: it's free and available for all.
Automating the test cases for your web application will most probably improve the efficiency and quality of your testing process, however, that’s only one part of the equation. The other is the automation tool you choose.
As more and more traditional front- and back-office applications are being migrated from desktop to web-based interfaces, testing the functionality of web applications is becoming highly critical. For that reason, learning what and how to automate is a crucial component of successful web app testing.
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.
The pace of software development has increased tremendously in recent years. Consumers not only expect fast updates and releases, but also high quality.
