Description

Automated user interface tests are not a new practise, however they often seem to be more trouble then they’re worth. Tests can end up fragile, and a failing test frequently points to itself as the failure point, rather than the code it is based on – sometimes the test itself might even be wrong, leading to false positives and missed defects. _x000D_ _x000D_ In this session we will discuss our solution to these problems, utilising Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and Acceptance Test Driven Development, in the context of application lifecycle management and agile software development teams. We will discuss how we help our business analysts refine the requirements so that they can be expressed as a set of tests, then pick which tests to automate, and how to automate them – and importantly, which ones we automate with a UI test. We will focus on what we have found hard, and how we developed a solution to these problems._x000D_
