What Gives? Test Case Reuse

יום שני, ינואר 19, 2009

Have you ever thought of selling your test cases? I am pretty sure that most of you have not. This is not surprising because usually the Test Cases are written for internal usage and thus are not in such a quality that will allow you to "sell" them or even to "reuse" them internally, right? Have you ever thought why nobody sells them? I believe that there are several reasons, here are two of them: Never thought about Test Cases as an assets. The code is purely designed and implemented. According to Microsoft, this...

What Gives? Exploratory Testing

יום שני, ינואר 12, 2009

James Whittaker say that testing is Hard and I quote: “Software testing is complicated by an overload of variation possibilities from inputs and code paths to state, stored data and the operational environment. Indeed, whether one chooses to address this variation in advance of any testing by writing test plans or by an exploratory approach that allows planning and testing to be interleaved, it is an impossible task. No matter how you ultimately do testing, it’s simply too complex to do it completely." James suggests a new approach for testing called Exploratory Testing. According to James, Exploratory Testing...

What's New? Lab Management

יום שני, ינואר 5, 2009

Intro Last week I had the chance to meet Shay Mandel from Microsoft India. Shay is a program manager on the lab management team. Lab management was declared during the the PDC. In this posts I will try and give a small review of this product, so if you heard about it, you might learn more and if you did not this can be a good reference for you to understand what it is all about. What is a Lab? A lab consists of at least one machine and potentially can reach up to 2,3,4 or even 100. Each...

What Gives? Web Test Modularity & Extract Web Test

יום ראשון, דצמבר 14, 2008

Visual Studio 2008 introduces a new option called "Extract Web Test" within the Web Test context menu. This is a cool feature that allows you to extract requests or transactions from a web test and create a new web test. I love this feature mainly because it can save us a lot of time and allow you to modular your tests...Let me explain. One of the key features we need to strive for is to modular our automated tests. We want to be able to reuse modules or web tests within different tests or scenarios. For...

Test Driven Development & Visual Studio 2010

יום שישי, נובמבר 14, 2008

Up to now, Visual Studio did a great job helping us develop applications and tests based on existing classes and methods, but when you don't have your API ready, the IDE will fight you. TDD is out there for some time now and is popular, however the IDE gives all those developers who use TDD hard time. Visual Studio 2010 IDE has some improvements to allow test first style. Class Stub I love using the method stub, where if I don't have a method the IDE allows me to auto generate it with the parameters and signature as needed. In VS...

Bug in a Data-Driven Unit/Web Test

יום שלישי, מרץ 18, 2008

I have created a Data-Driven Unit Test using Visual Studio Team System 2008 and bounded it to an SQL data source. When I executed the unit test for each row in the data source I got this strange result: In the data source I got only three records. So, on one hand, as we can see in the lower square,  it displays a message that all four tests passed (4??? wasn't 3?). On the upper square it displays a message the all three tests passed (this is correct).

Using multiple scenarios in a load test

יום שלישי, פברואר 5, 2008

In Visual Studio Team Tester you can create a load test. The load test contains al least one scenario. In each scenario you define the think time, the number of users, the patterns and etc. It is possible to create multiple scenarios per load test. Doing so it simple, all you need to do is right click on the scenario folder and select "Add Scenario", then follow the wizard and you have got yourself a load test with two scenarios. So, the question is why would you do that? why do you need...
